Entries in dining room (74)
Thought I'd show you the extent of my Christmas decorations for this year. Brass candlesticks, white candles, box of matches. Done! I think I'm over the whole Christmas thing already. I will, however, never be over the whole fire thing ;)
As much as I am dying for a new house, I keep trying to keep myself from going crazy while stuck here by continuing to do small projects and picking up little things here and there I totally don't need or have room for (LOL). Here are the latest bits and bobs that I've worked on or purchased.
First up - I got a little tired and bored with the centrepiece on my dining table. Because my house is so small and my dining space is in the middle of the kitchen, it means the dining table is prime real estate for displays. (You can see photos of what has been hanging out on my table for the past several months here). I went to Value Village Friday and found a wooden tray for $3.99, then went around the house collecting pieces I thought would work for a fall theme. I have a red and orange batik table runner I may put down too (but the cats tend to lay on the table where there's fabric on it).
I thought I would do a little something different today so last night I went through my inspiration folder (always a bit sad as it seems rebuilding this house is never going to become reality) and picked out all of the photos that really stand out and make me have heart palpitations. So here's the first batch.
This has been my favourite wood floor for EVER. I adore the rustic/raw look. DREAMY. (Via Hus & Hem)
While I love my current kitchen, black and white kitchens always get me going. The tile backsplash is perfection. (Via Anna Carin Design)
My next kitchen absolutely must have some sort of butler's pantry type situation going on. Check out the little space off this kitchen. (Elizabeth's lake house)
