Setting up housekeeping is an old phrase. It referred to where a couple was going to live when they got married.
Lindsay and Joseph have found a darling little house, to rent, that was built in 1957. It has a lot of charm - deep baseboard trim, arched doorways, a darling kitchen. It also has been very well maintained and the colors are updated.
Perfect for setting up housekeeping. They are excited to be finding things to furnish their house. Right now Joseph lives there and there is a bed, Lindsays' hope chest, and now a dining room table and chairs.
The manufacturer is Henkle Harris of Winchester, Virginia. They are fine furniture makers. We found this set at a small used furniture store in Ephrata, called Garden Spot Furniture. A friend told us about this place. They have quality used furniture, and great prices.

They are very excited about this piece of furniture! Lindsay says that now Joseph has a place to sit down to eat breakfast!
It's fun to watch them prepare for their lives together, and it's an honor to be apart of it.
