Our Dining Area

Welcome to our dining room!

There are curtains now, but I took the pic an hour before my mom brought them in. She made them from Mary Engelbreit fabric. I am currently looking for a new dining room table. I love this square one, but it has lived a hard life.
My hubby took his guns and ammo and crossbow out of his cabinet. He has a HUGE safe he puts that stuff in now. He let me fill it with my Lee Middleton dolls, Annette Funicello bears, Knickerbocker bears, vintage Gerber baby I played with as a child, and Boyds Bears. I added the Scottie quilt my mom made for a back drop. Dr. Hubby's vintage doc bag, antique play car, miner's hat, and oil lamps are on top.

I was so excited to get the wall hanging my mom framed for me up on the wall.

Dr. Hubby bought me this Longaber rack and large basket last Christmas.

I have a slight addiction...can you tell what it is?! lol.

Looks like you have SEVERAL collection addictions! LOL! As long as you enjoy it, that's what counts (and you're not a hoarder, clearly, so it's all good).

I only collect vintage rhinestone brooches. And craft supplies. And now baking supplies. Gulp. Looks like I'm a bit of a collector after all too! LOL!

My friend and I both have so many baskets we say, who ever dies with the most WINS! Love your colors.

Glad to hear the guns aren't in the dining room - lol.

Are you just loving it? I am loving the paint color. And I think I need a close up shot of the chandelier.
