Summer in the dining room...

Hello all! I am still trying to come up from under this awful cold I have(yuk! enough already!) a pile of work and a busy social calender. I am very grateful for and excited about the work on my plate and my busy social calender (means lots of good times with great friends,) now if the darn cold would just go away I might be able to get caught up a little more and post something fun. For now, here are a few pics of some summer changes to the dining room that I managed to get done this week would I could not think clear enough to work...



New (old) white mirror added to the buffet, along with a blue painted thrifted lamp with a burlap shade (also thrifted.)


Some of my favorite summer decorations... my Summer Serving Tray (FYI -this is a Camp STORIA project...more info coming next week!)


And jars filled with river rocks and sea shells from past vacations and travels.


The china hutch has been cleaned and de-cluttered a little more, most of the nest put away for a while....


And Thrifted Swiss-Dot curtains add a breezy feel and let in more light to this red room. They are too short for this huge window but for now they will do...

Chole the Brave Dog has found her favorite summer spot by the floor vent under the white curtains...

  1. Hi Jerusalem,
    I hope you're feeling much better. It's no fun having a cold, even worse, a cold during warm weather.
    I love your tiered server and your lamp.
    Beautiful dining room!
    Take care,
    Rosa
