It's getting to close to Friday and since I have a full day of activity to do tomorrow I am going to jump the gun and post tonight for Kelly's "Show Us Where You Live Fridays". We are doing dining rooms this time and this is another room that stays pretty clean in my house......so I can take some pictures of it without having to fret!!! Note to Kelly: Please don't ask to show closets.....I will only go so far!!
This is looking in to the dining room to your left as you enter from the front door. I do like my light fixture very much too. I looked and looked all over for a light fixture I could REALLY like and live with. I finally found one in a shop in Missouri.
This is just a little side table that I usually change up decorations with as the seasons change. My Mother-in-law gave me the clock and it is one of very favorite things!
As you can probably see, I love blue and white. I love b/w toile and so I used it on the pillows in the corner of my room. The two little bird prints are one of my favorite items from OOPS!
Most of my blue/white dishes are mismatched at best. I usually just see a plate or cup that I like and mix it up when I serve on them. I use to collect teapots (but now I just look at them and pass them up) so I have many blue/white teapots that I love also. I use to buy a teapot most everywhere I traveled to remind me of the trip. I tape a little note under each telling the place and the date of the trip. I also love large glass jars that I store on top of my breakfront.
This is probably my very favorite piece of furniture. I can't begin to tell you how heavy it is but if a tornado comes, it ain't going anywhere!! I will probably haul this to the nursing home with me because they never have enough storage space!!
Forgive the inside....I really need to refold and get rid of some pieces. But this is where I keep all my tablecloths, placemats, napkins, table runners, etc. You get the picture! Some of my things were given as a wedding present.......those are the ones I need to get rid of......they are getting to be antiques soon!!
