What room to start with??? I was planning on the living room/ Library/den combo...
but for some reason decided to start with the Dinning room :)
When you come through the door of Owl creek farm...
This is the tunnel view you get :) because our camera's don't like to have
peripheral vision! See the hallway to the left? and the wonderful wall sconce's?
There is a wonderful storage closet there. And the door strait ahead? a Coat closet..then to
your right a peak into the library/den area and to the left a peak into the living room :)
(In many ways these are before picks...because I have not painted anything yet) I love this green color...but it's to dark for this area of the home...yet it has been done so nice...
this wont be first first on my list...)
This is the dinning room before we cleaned and moved things in...
notice there was no overhead light??!
It had the wonderful Real brass sconce lighting
but for eating, that wasn't really 'lite' enough...
We have never had a dinning room before. So this was a blank canvas and even tho
down the road I will paint...I was so excited about this big dinning room :)
I just had to have this Harvest Table! It's 8ft...and yet, that still
wont fit all of us :)
In my dream's of chandeliers I always pictured more a white country cottage one...
But they did NOT go with this home...
However I did fall in love with this one..and it fits perfectly
We had to swag it for now...there is no fixture there yet..and this Room only has
Isn't it pretty? It matches the brass sconce's !!! and the flavor of this home.
I don't have the chairs I need for the table..but I borrowed some from the Kitchen set :)
My style..ummm I love country cottage, but for my family,
the whites, the light colors, the roses..to much and they would be destroyed!
My husband is a man's man...and therefore he has dirt and grease and things hanging from his jeans.
he is not going to take his shoes off...that just is NOT who he is.
so I think you will see through out my home that I just have a 'Love Style'
I find pieces I love and put them with practical...I hang thing's
that have been gifts or made for me...because I LOVE those thing's...
so yes...a love style is what I would call me :)
My style is like, well like Music...it depends on my mood!
I love all kinds of music...country, pop, rock and roll, classics jazz..etc etc..
so my style is the same...it's what I fall in love with..right then and there... and I
just combine it all!
I must say...I love having a dinning room! who would of "thunk it?" :)
All 5 of our kids senior pic's are on this wall (the oldest never had one taken..so we have her nursing pic up)
down the road I will have to get a 16 x 20 of her...and then we have are 5 grand kids...
so our love wall!!!
These pic's were taken right before our Mothers day dinner!
Above the bay window :) "we create our tomorrows by what we dream today"
The lil plaque on this shelf was a gift from my husband
"we may not have it all together, but together we have it all"
This lil plaque I found..I just loved the saying because it's so true
'Integrity is doing the right thing when no one else is watching"
I have always loved old red barns and white church's...
and to think..I now have my own old red barn...oh how blessed I am .
I am a sucker for pretty dishes! I so love them! but I hunt for special pieces.
My collection's are slow growing as I look for the perfect piece's...
but that also makes it fun.
The beautiful Brass sconces!
I will be posting more home pic's
but if your new, here are some other links that
will take you to post's about this home
and how blessed and lucky we feel.
Thanks for stopping by..I would love to hear from you!
