MY DININGROOM


Today I am adding pictures of my dining area. Actually, my living and dining area are shared spaces. The walls of most of my house are done in tongue and groove wood. Most of the doors and windows are from an English manor in England. With the walls being so dark, white and/or cool color furniture works well, at least I think so. The statue in the planter is my absolute favorite. She used to have a place on my piano, but, unfortunately about a month ago one of the farrow cats from the ranch next to us found its way into my home (through and open window) and my "guard" kitties chased the farrow cat across my living room, on top of my piano,,,yep you guessed it. My lovely statue came tumbling down, humpty dumpty style. She sat on my dining table for about 3 weeks while I mourned her demise. Then I had a revelation. Why not stick her in my urn...so there you have it. The other lady statue in front of the arched window I purchased some time ago at http://matildasmouse.com/. The window was a flea market find from Irvine College Flea Mart. On top of the china cabinet is my newest addition of the religious statues that I collect. It is a beautiful statue of the infant Jesus. He was a much surprised birthday gift from a friend. Inside the cabinet I have a collection of smaller infant Jesus statues. Hmmm, seems like I do like my statues. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my dining area. I am saving my livingroom for White Wednesday hosted by Kathleen at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ P.S. I just had to edit this post, cause I just realized that my little featherweight sewing machine is sitting on my dining table..talk about house blindness! Oh, well, needless to say I am in the middle of doing my projects for this month's barn sale at Matildas......

I have really enjoyed all the photos you have been showing of your lovely home...just had time to look, but not comment for the past few days!
I loved the curtained alcove in the bedroom, btw! Your windows are wonderful backdrops for all your beautiful things.
