~ The Dinning Room ~

Our Dinning Room walls are a golden yellow that change colors with the light that comes through the stain glass windows.
I made the head chair slip covers years ago, They were made with Waverly fabric. The table Gary and I bought unfinished, we stained the legs black and the top in a deep warm walnut and stressed the table when we were done.
A look at the Dinning Room from the Kitchen, I made the curtains with red and white ticking fabric and red and white polka dot fabric. I love the polka dots they are so cheery! Our home has a very open floor plan with all rooms close to each other.
The stained glass windows are actually a stained glass overlay made by Mary and Caroline Mullins a Mother and Daughter team that own "Valley Rose Designer Glass Studio" in Modesto Ca. Currently Mary and Caroline are working on the design for my kitchen cabinet doors. I can't wait to see them!.

I wish you could see the beauty of these windows like I can, the light and reflections from them are just breathtaking.

The mike glass lamp is the mate to the one in my Guest Room. I just made a different lamp shade. The hens belonged to my Grandma and the cake plate with cover and dish warmer were wedding gifts to my Parents 56 years ago, they are still as lovely as the day they were received. The blue tea pot, teacup and saucer are a few of many favorites.
A closer look at the beautiful pewter dish warmer.
And cake plate.

I hope you can read this, you can click on the picture to enlarge. My Daughters and Son n laws gave this to me for Mother's Day.

Gary and Elizabeth,

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning. I love your dining room and that stained glass window is a perfect touch. That cake dome reminds me of one my grandmother had when I was growing up.
