Happy Monday to you....for this week's post I thought I would share with you our dinning room. Since last I posted about it, Gary and I have purchased a (new to us) dinning table, chairs and hutch, also a new side board and two mirrors. Are you ready for a peek around...lets go..
So our sweet neighbors next door to us are moving (sad face) but we are happy for them..decided to sell almost everything and start anew.. Gary saw their dinning room table set and hutch and quickly ran home to get me, to come see! Well of course I love it and since one of our daughters needed a dinning room table (we thought lets buy this one and give the kids ours) such rationalization..don't you think.
So here she is our new to us dinning table, she looks brand new, just gently used. The color matched our new sideboard and mirror we had bought a few months ago, how lucky was that :)
The chairs have leather seats and backs with hammered studs, I love all the detail.
And the feet and legs have a lot of detailed carvings.
In the sideboard that I keep my pink and white rose china in has pretty round sides. I really like how how curvy it is.
Gary and I found these candles at our favorite lighting store in our town. Can you believe these are electric! They have a faux flame, the wick flickers back and fourth and they have a light sent to them and are called Luminara Candles.

(I dearly love this photo).
Who likes Godiva Liqueur...I do!!! The lovely glasses belonged to my Grandma and are dated back to the 50's. They are very delicate and have a such a pretty amber glow to them.
The four tiered tables were my Grandma's, they are hand carved Asian tables dated to the 1940's. and when she passed my dear sister took them into her home and cared for them with loving hands. Since my sister's passing they now reside in our home and I will take very good care of them for Sister and Grandma.
I think they are so lovely. A true family heirloom.
The hutch/buffet fit very nicely in our entry way, we were unable to use the beautiful hutch top since our ceilings are a standard 8ft. The top would have touched the ceiling, so now the top sits in our garage.
The mirror is vintage not really sure how old it is, my sister and I were shopping at Sandi's The Green Pea Boutique located in Escalon Ca.
and my sister called out to me (come here seester)...that is what we called each other (seester). She was so excited to show me what she had found for me, since we were shopping specially for a unique mirror for my entry. Well as you can see it came with us. It is hand carved and very, very heavy! If you are ever near Escalon stop by The Green Pea there is always something fun to see and something vintage to bring back a sentimental childhood memory.
Lots of fine detail to this piece.
Oh no....Henri.....what are you doing in the dinning room I thought you were in the kitchen! silly, silly Henri the Rooster he loves to roam from room to room. Henri has free rain of the house and we never know where he will show up!. Henri used to live at Penny's house The Comforts of Home
until he came to live with Gary and me. Since its been so hot here I think Henri has been trying to go outside to jump into the pool. (Can Rooster even swim?) But we keep the air on for him and the fans blowing.
Wishing you all a sweet week
