Be Inspired #136: A "Charming" Dining Room

Hi Everyone,
Time for Be Inspired
a place to link up all your inspiring posts.

I've been a fan of Faded Charm since my first week of blogging. I didn't know what a "party" was, or how to link up to one, but the moment I laid eyes on Kathleen's wonderful blog I was smitten! I joined in for all of Kathleen's White Wednesday parties except twice, and once was because I was in the hospital. OK, so you know how much I love this girl!! Over the years I've watched her decorate her beautiful home in the Pacific Northwest with one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and through the years admire her style and eye for decorating with "whites". She just purchased new frenchy chairs and they give her Dining Room a lovely new vibe. 









Kathleen can even make a chicken feeder elegant!!


Amanda from Dixie Delights
revealed her new dressing space and now I'm wondering
if she'll come to my house.




loves to look beyond just planting in an everyday "pot".
She has some fun ideas for garden containers.




Laura from The Turquoise Home shares her Living Room reveal.
You won't believe the difference a paint color and wall treatment can make.
You'll want to see the "before" and "afters".



And since I've been lovin' me some cows this week,
I had to share Linda's adorable Moo-Cow pillow from Coastal Charm




 Wanda from No Place Like Home
shared a yummy and  pretty recipe with Pansies and Herbed Cream Cheese.
What a wonderful addition to a Springtime Brunch.




This week's Sponsor Spotlight is on the oh-so-talented Christie Scibior and her wonderful Etsy Shop full of watercolor prints and notecards of her designs. I just adore her art and have one of her precious watercolor prints, myself. Please take a minute to run by Christie's shop, and then fall in love with her sweet creations.







Thank you so much, Christie!

  1. Debra, I had to keep scrolling up and down to look at the gorgeous dining room, then when you said, "chicken feeder" I was blown over. I had no idea, I thought it was just some neat old tin container. You are right, she could probably make my waste basket look elegant!
