Hello sweet friends!
My daughter Alexandra flew home this morning and it looks like I am about to rest somewhat, as some of you know she had an appendicitis and I've taken care of her for 22 days, and I am already missing her...plus I had guests from the USA, a tea party for friends that was due and finally a Rosary gathering...all in January! Not counting Alejandro's nephew's wedding we attended last Saturday, as to end the busy month of January.
I could finally get to do some vignettes and concentrate more on my house, cause when it comes to me, it's been neglected a little; like when you just walk by and who cares what it all looks, even if it's crooked or you don't like the items there together, but, not a chance to think, even!
Therefore...I went around this morning fixing it all up, here and there and everywhere... taking pieces out and placing them in different spots, etc.
So far the dining room is how I like it and it's my fave room in the house, anyway.
Of course, it's not like you haven't seen my dining room, furniture and things, many, many times before!
Here goes the little changes, hope you like them.
|Meissen 1900s, two tier server; flanked by two Dutch-Delft vases.|
|In the one end of the buffet some pinks with the hand decorated, German urn and three tier Lady Carlyle server.|
|Some more blues around this area too.|
|The reticulated bowl in front of us and it has the Onion pattern.|
|In every piece of furniture, like in this antique Egyptian piece there's a blue and white, Dutch-Delft ginger jar as well.|
My collection has gotten bigger thru the years, lol!
|In the breakfast room area, there's this vignette, in blue and white again, specially to show off mother's C'mas gift, this big Oriental teapot at your right in the tray, here.|
|I call the pretty 'Meissen bowl' in the vintage-American nesting tables... 'girls playing hide and seek.' |
On top on the wall my Fil's American vintage clock.
The entrance to the kitchen at your right.
|On top of the antique French table the beautiful 'Murano' compote Alejandro bought for me last Mother's Day.|
Of course, the new upholstered French chairs in blue Tartan material.
|The Italian dining table, chairs and Oriental rug.|
|The breakfast vintage French table. You might remember hubby bought it last year, around 6 months ago, to replace the alabaster one we had; that was sent to our DD Alexandra's house.|
|I'm totally smitten with this antique, Belgium buffet, from the early 1940's.|
Besides the fact that it's practical because it has such deep and wide storage inside for china, as only the antique ones have.
Thank you so much dearest friends for your kind and sweet comments, you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
A special thanks to the generous and supportive ladies that feature me.
"Creative Mondays" Clairejustine; thank you.
