Today we are in my dining room. You haven't seen any rooms in my new house yet. So this will be your first peek. Eventually this room and the living room will have to be painted! We are busy just trying to get settled. The garage is a work in progress. The walls are finished and painted! It still needs to be unpacked. Mr. Sweetladyelaine has little time except for weekends.
The story of all of our lives, right????
The downstairs is unpacked, just little things to do like pictures, decorations etc.. The upstairs is overwhelming...............I am going through every box and putting it away or repacking it and putting it in the bedroom/storage room. Did I tell you I took a bedroom and I am making it into a storage room. No more going up those rickety stairs in the ceiling or garage for me! I own too much stuff! lol
What happened to downsizing you ask????? I did downsize!!!!!!
I bought a smaller house and got rid of lots, but you know more finds it's way in! I do think someone else must live here........stuff, stuff and more stuff! I just want it all organized so that when the warm weather gets here I can go swimming all afternoon. You will come and join me, won't you!
On to my dining room......
It is painted in a gray blue suede with lots of crown molding. Yes, that is my chandelier! I bring it with me wherever I go. I'll probably pack it in my coffin when I die. Oh wait a minute...............
I'm going to be cremated! Well, I guess my daughter will get it!
I just love the zebra chargers! I wanted them for so long. I just bought them in Hobby Lobby.
My dinner plates are Ridges by Living Quarters. The cream roses on the salad plate are so pretty. It says Royal Limited on the back. Both were bought at GW, I think.
Look at the roses on the salad plate. I only have four of these.
Pretty dessert plates
I like to layer when I can.
A lace table cloth with a red satin one underneath, it falls to the floor.
A few extra shots that I thought were nice....
I made chocolate dipped strawberries......forgot to put them on the plate.
This will be our first year to go out in a long time.
I am looking forward to it.
I will be joining Susan at BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1Corinthians 13:4-7)
May you find love in all the right places!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!
Blessings My Friend,
