The farm table is beautiful made from re-claimed lumber from England. The chairs salvaged from an antique container and re-upholstered and monogrammed. Comfy too for us Southerners who need a bit larger chair!
|The buffet is French with a collection of Majolica...The painting is by Birmingham, AL artist, Elizabeth Holmes.|
|Love the details in the door panels & large hinges & hardware|
The Green Majolica...so vibrant!
Majolica pieces that sweet friends & my hubby have given me over the years...
|The Queen has many "favs", but I have to admit, brown transferware is at the top of the list! This washstand has brown transferware tiles in the back...and the marble is just fantastic...|
|Closeups of the vignettes...My mother says I have too much, & who wants to dust all of that stuff?...|
|but I dust it and The Queen's Philosophy is "the more the merrier!"|
|When I adopted my poodle-bichon , Sassy, from the Humane Society, my gal pals started this collection for me!|
|Needlepoint chair with mink|
|This tile top table was a Mother's Day gift several years ago.|
...And Now for the "Royal" Collection of Vintage & Antique Pictures....
I know that typically children lithographs should not be hung in the dining room...but I am the Queen, so I can do what I wish...no complaints from the King yet...
|Is she not precious? Look, she has lost a shoe!|
|Cranky Em (my Mamma) decided that I needed a family heirloom among my children...so she gave me him.|
|Antique Fruit Picture...now these do belong in the Dining Room!|
|Stitches of love from a quilt long forgotten. Framed for us to remember, "our lives may become unraveled"...but you can "hem with prayer". Thank you Lord for all of YOUR blessings!|
Thank you for visiting my home...oh, I mean "Castle"...The tour will continue...Have a wonderful weekend!
STAY CALM & DINE OUT OFTEN!
