This dining room design came about because
someone in my home had a dish issue
that was in desperate need of accomodation.
Now, oh so happily stored behind all
of those wonderful drawers and doors
are dishes, glassware, serveware,
flatware, napkins, candles and more.
You can read more about all these dishes here.
The pedestal and pears are the
centerpiece year round.
Berries get added for Christmas,
and the runners may change seasonally.
This is the easiest room in my house to decorate,
and it is a perfect reflection of me.
Those sweet little angels are a treasure to me.
My mother purchased them at a dime store
about fifty-three years ago.
The bowl and pitcher belonged to
Another family treasure.
My husband and I purchased this server
at an antique show many years ago.
We had the marble piece made for it
when we redecorated the dining room.
Can you see those tiny little angels
around the tureen on the bottom shelf?
My parents got those their first Christmas, 1951.
I made the ornament wreath several years ago,
and it hangs from an oak leaf mirror.
This is one of my most treasured possessions.
I had polio in 1959, and I was confined to bed.
One of our neighbors made this for me
to have in my bedroom.
His nickname was Red,
and he and his family were some of
the early immigrants to
the United States from Cuba.
He loved to cook, and to this day,
I prepare Spanish Bean Soup from his recipe.
My mother purchased the nativity figures from
a dime store, and most of them
cost less than a quarter. They are stamped
made in Italy.
Their is no price for the symbolic and sentimental
value to me.
Thank you so much for visiting
my Holiday Home Tour.
