When you get the pictures hung, the plate hangers, the mirrors, the paintings then it really feels like home...needed those final touches. This is looking at the dining area from the living room. Remember the mirror I had hanging behind my stove, well it found a new home in the dining room. I love it there as it reflects the balcony and brings more light. The Tea Cart that Jill gave me has found a home as "Our Coffee Café." I actually have a dinning room and can put all four chairs around the table!!
I decided to use the open shelves for the Fiesta Ware to bring some color into the kitchen. As you can see "Freddie the Fish" has a new home on the counter. My Chicken plaque and rooster plates finish off the color on that wall.
My dearest starts every morning with toast and coffee, so this is a little breakfast bar. The hat boxes are full of my tea cups, etc. as I chose to display the milk glass in my swivel hutch, and my mother's hutch found a new home at our daughter Julie's.
Tonight we had tostadas on the balcony.
