On Sunday John and I stayed home and worked around the house outside. I had bought some flowers for the front garden and some garden containers for the patio. Alot of you know I just love flowers and the big family joke is I would spend my last dime on flowers! The garden out front looked nice but needed some color. I saw this beautiful delphinium when I was at Home Depot looking at their chandeliers. The blue just caught my eye and I was sold!! Before we moved here we just had the small courtyard between the townhouse and the garage and now I've got a whole yard! John and I had been talking about the chandelier in the Dining Room on Friday night. We still don't know why the owners of the house didn't put a chandelier in the dining room-very odd. I was leaning towards the Pottery Barn chandelier I had posted here in an earlier post, but then we thought we better stick to a more traditional one since we have so many antique pieces in that room. We bought a Williamsburg type chandelier and it definitely completes that room. Here is a glimpse of what we have been up to!
Switching gears from the garden to the house. Here is the Dining Room all done!
Hope you liked my tour of my gardens and the completed Dining Room. Things are really coming together downstairs and I really need to get my act together upstairs. I need to paint the guest room because I just found out my sister and her family are coming for a visit in July. I don't think they would appreciate macaroni and cheese yellow walls-LOL!!!
Everyone have a fabulous day!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
