and up front we have...



I call this the front room because sometimes I move the dining table into that adjacent room where the two chairs are which is kinda small but is the original dining room. At some point the pantry was made into the bathroom and they stole a foot from that smaller room. We are kitchen table people so the larger room works well for entertaining company where we can now sit and watch the flames flicker as well.


The two metal shelves were positioned so I could see how two tall glass doored cabinets would work. I really like that but I'm thinking lower is ideal. The quilt on the wall was my first spring decor inspiration. It could go for a throw in the sitting room because I want the dogwood double wedding ring up there.

Across the room from the stove is that hutch. Again, I luv open shelving. Such deco opportunities.

The runner is fabric, green on one side and the same print as the sitting room on the flip side.

Curves are the spring shape and as I showed earlier this week, I did some drunkards path blocks, 3 inches. Too cute and the options for arranging them will keep me busy until I get them sewed in place.

Spring is going to be in full swing as those April showers have arrived and we May have weeds arriving. lol So I better keep springing!

I love peeking in at your house. It has such a serene quality about it. Your woodwork and the door leading out of your dining room is beautiful. Your hutch is very similar to the one in my dining room, but mine is stained a darker tone. I agree with you about the decorating possibilities. I love to put my favorite dishes and teapots on the shelves.
especially at Christmas.

I can't wait to see what you do with your little Drunkard's Path blocks. I'm such a chicken about curves.
