Organizing and refreshing the dining room was on my list
of small projects after the Christmas decorations were taken away.
I have been on the lookout for some storage items for this room too.
The dining room for the winter is also acting as a mini greenhouse
for plants that are waiting to be brought back out on the porch in the Spring.
The majority of the house gets great sunlight throughout the day; however,
the sitting area of the dining room is really conducive to making plants very happy.
The orchid in the sitting area was a gift from my sister last year
for my birthday…it has been blooming for a year. Definitely in its happy place.
The blue and white covered jars are back on the table
along with a blue and white bowl of preserved boxwood.
A new vignette created for the top of the hutch.
I relocated the tole candle sconces that were above the brackets to the great room
and replaced them with these small paintings of Paris scenes.
The ironstone in the hutch underwent a bit of re-arranging.
There are some new items added for storage.
Did you notice the new additions?
Yes, the baskets on the bottom shelf. I found the perfect sizes at Pottery Barn.
And it was also a great thing that I had several PB birthday gift cards.
The open baskets are already filled with placemats, tablecloths, and napkins.
The lidded basket in the middle hold an array of candlesticks.
Another room refreshed after being filled with Christmas decor.
Now on to the next room that needs a bit more organizing!
Have a most beautiful day . . . It will be a colder day for us
and there is even some talk about some light snowfall.
I hope the key word is “light”!
