A Winter Dining Room in Neutrals

Since packing up the Christmas decor I've been bringing out my light and neutral decor pieces. In the Dining Room that meant changing out the table runner and doing something a little different on the table.

Kitchen Sitting Room

I was ready to show you a new tabletop vignette I had put together when I realized that I hadn't shown the rest of the Kitchen Sitting Room pics. This space is such a departure from what I had at the other house, but still "my style". I had been concentrating on just whites in the small kitchen eating area, so it was fun to bring in some "woods" over here. I like a mix of the woody tones and whites and neutrals, and having this unexpected space off the kitchen, I have been able to use some pieces I never thought I'd be able to.

This big armoire was in the basement holding quilts and pillows, but since I needed extra storage for pantry items in here, I brought this with us. I had originally hoped to put the tv in here but it took up valuable shelf space, so it's on a separate wicker table.

Yes, it's black on the sides. The girls that had this piece in their shop were spray paint "happy" back before chalk paint came along. They just painted the two sides, (glad they didn't mess with the front of it) but when we get settled, it probably will get a paint makeover...not sure what color.

The two large breadboards are from Antique Farmhouse,
 and the laundry basket is filled with extra linens.

I found the French Cheese sign at Robin's Vintage Suitcase.

This little shepherdess is one of my all-time favorite prints,
it was in the powder room right off the kitchen in the old house.
I love this dark comb painted frame.

I told you about this antique table and chairs here.
It still has initials carved in the top from one of the kiddo's guy friend's.
When I found out, I thought of man-handling him...
good thing he could run really fast.

sorry, sort of blurry

The kitty girls had to find new napping spots here, 
so this is now a fave.
Bonus is that the grain sack replica is burlap,
 so when she's not napping she can chew on it.

One of my milkmaid prints is hanging here, 
 the other one had such a heavy frame 
I didn't want to put in the wall anchor for it.

I'm so glad I was able to use this wicker settee that had been on the sunporch.
 It's my new coffee drinking spot first thing in the morning.

An old bench is doubling for a small coffee table.
Just big enough for one of my black tole trays.

I don't think I've ever shared this old ironstone hexagon shaped tureen bottom;
another basement decor piece.
(I had all kinds of things hidden down there!)

Frenchy Pillows

I know that I just showed you the updated (that would be "this week") sunporch, but I found some wonderful new pillows that I wanted to show you, and it just so happened they landed on the little wicker settee out there.

I have a small obsession with birdies this time of year, and when I saw this embroidered birdie pillow at one of my favorite places I had to have it...and one to go with it.

And can you see that they're burlap?
This was one of my "ohmygosh, how stinkin' cute" moments.

You know it's cute, when it's "stinkin' cute".

Taken from illustrations from the Natural History archives, 
birds and butterflies...
and on burlap!

When I first saw these I thought they had been screen printed on,
but it's actually embroidery...

As I predicted last week, we're heading right in to summer.
 Today is supposed to be in the upper 80's.

 Soaking up the sunshine...
Bird watching...

And here are a few pics from Robin's Vintage Suitcase
where I nabbed these cuties.

On the table...

Since our younger daughter and her husband will be hosting Thanksgiving at their home this year, I haven't had to be concerned about a proper tablescape.  But I have changed out a few things on the table last week. I filled my ironstone tureen with about 10 paperwhite bulbs and sat it and my white velvet pumpkin  on my dark harvest-y vintage tray.

The Dining Room has beautiful soft light most of the day.

I took out the "orange" leaves in the windowbox centerpiece
 and in their place added some faux evergreens.

adding a little "Winter" and removing a little "Fall"

But a bigger change came on the table by swapping out the dark grain sack fabric for this lighter creamy burlap fabric, which I just folded over once lengthwise and left the edges raw. I like the lighter burlap for this week which will soon be changed out for Christmas. I found a wonderful antique grain sack with a red stripe on Etsy from Austria. I'm planning on adding it over the burlap for my Christmas Season tablerunner. I'll share that with you soon, and the Etsy shop I purchased it from.

A set of my lambies approve.
