|Corningware trays of portobello mushroom burgers, eggplant, zucchini & brussel kebabs.|
|Big hunks of egglplant and yellow squash alongside red onions kebabs|
|A cast iron fence post urn with peonies for a table setting|
|The royals rescued from various cupboards & hidden nooks.|
|A record by Gisele MacKenzie and a crown for a crock.|
|Several layers of lace and legs.|
|The table was $15 at an estate sale, given a fresh sand & coat of white|
We left the trim around the pedestal and tabletop edge in their original black paint.
|Looking into the living room.|
|Looking into the dining room.|
|Updated from glass to real crystals - hence all the rainbows.|
|Really ought to photo when the sunrise comes in, the flash does no justice.|
|Into the living room.|
|The living room sofa and coffee table.|
|Cosette getting sleepy on the Shabby Chic squishy chair and Ballard's Bee pillow.|
|We got this great 3 drawer rope tassle dresser at Salvation Army for $25.|
Debated painting it but love the patina, scuffs and dings.
|Thru the looking glass are framed rose botanical prints from a book.|
|These sconces have since moved to the family room.|
|These chairs were one of our first great estate sale finds|
and have had several seat cushion changes.
|Another but smaller cast iron urn, a music box, and a pitcher.|
|Each chair has one of each of these faces, |
making each feel unique but also as a pair with unexpected symmetry.
|Our coffee table - an old armoire door|
|Attached to an old metal garden coffee table for the right amount of balance.|
|Looking into the foyer|
|Extendable library table found at a yard sale for $10.|
|Again, loved the patina - no heart to paint it,|
so that it anchors the other end of the room and the rope tassel dresser.
|Rose marble top two drawer side table commode |
painted to mirror the "Martha" sewing table.
|Beautiful wood veneer inlay work and rosettes.|
|Its like watching clouds roll by|
|Looking out at the dogwood tree in the front yard.|
|View from the foyer, welcome home indeed.|
|Layers of bamboo shades and curtains to work with the western sun |
and give us great lighting effects.
