Welcome to our dining room. This is its busiest time of year when five out of seven people here at freckled hen incorporated have birthdays. It’s nearly fall and a lovely time of year to entertain. No more sweaty barbeques. Bring the people in the house and eat at the table. I like a crowded table with lots of noise and food.
Lucky for us the dining room is a wee bit small and having a crowded table is no problem. Actually our family fits comfortably and when we invite anyone over we have to spread tables and chairs elsewhere and it turns into quite a cacophony with kids that have to overtalk each other and adults that have been sampling the spirits, if you know what I mean.
Our house was built in 1920. It has an old western feel to it, it makes you want to speak with a drawl and wear chaps (nothing else at all-just the chaps).
This room is a happy room, it’s kind of a menagerie of items that kind of match and many good memories. There’s plenty of hand me downs from our relatives.
And reminders of days gone by.
I actually remember falling in love with toile. It made me dizzy and I couldn’t think straight.
It was like a mad love affair.
Designers are probably done with toile and moved on to white pleather and glass. I am destined to be one of those women who just can’t let go.
Thanks for coming by! I hope you are fixin to have a great weekend.
