This is the occassional table next to my chair which is next to the fireplace.
This is where I sit in the evening and watch my Kindle Fire or a little TV.
It takes strength to sit here. Not hard to figure out why I put on a couple of pounds already!
See the big basket of huge pinecones there in the corner?
They are from our tree out front! I don't think there is another pine tree in Riverside that produces such beautiful and perfect pinecones. They are hard and shine up beautifully!
A security door. Well, I wish we didn't think we needed it..because a if a screen door was necessary I would choose a cute wooden one. Made by a craftsman. However....I DO dream a lot and PH wanted a good strong door. So...you know... :)
I fell in love with this door mat at Home Goods last year. WHAT is it about plaid that makes me crazy. Once, some years ago when I lived in Jacksonville Florida, there was a beautiful furniture store we visited. Not to buy, you understand, but to look. They had a thick catalog that featured Colonial furniture. There was a dining room that had plaid walls and ceiling...and since then..I've been in love with plaid and dreamed of having a dining room like that. It won't happen..but I kept that catalog for years and years. I wonder what ever happened to it.
The patio table. Left over tree cuttings for the centerpiece. If warm enough I have a plaid tablecloth that will cover that matches the furniture that will go on for Christmas Day. LOTS of people calls for lots of seating. We have an outside firepit....that might be nice. (Those are old afghans covering the furniture to protect it. You KNOW how I always plan for photo's!!) Oh well.
I watched our Presidents talk last night..and New Town coming together with all the faiths..and I cried.
Take care of one another out there...
I am joining our lovely hostess Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life. If you are looking to be inspired..this is the place!
