My Latest Project!


French Country Dining in "RED"!


I have been working on my dining room for a couple of months now. The two red walls were finished and I decided to paint the two remaining white walls Behr's River Bank...a deep, rich olive green. I'm very happy with the results...a little paint works wonders! Adding the olive color to this room gave it just the right atmosphere that I was looking for! Honey hung the chandelier, which I dug out of storage...brass is supposed to be "out of date", however I like it and decided to use it...updating it by adding gold shades to it! A few years ago, I began to collect red transferware...I just love it!!! After alot of planning, I decided to showcase some of my collection on the wall behind our wood burning stove...it was just what my newly decorated French Country dining room needed! We brought in the cutest little bench (that honey made in high school) and placed it under the large window...making a seating area! I filled it with pretty French fabric pillows and Voila!!! I'm very pleased with the changes and my little red dining room really does have that French Country flair!!!

Hi Chari, What a great job on your blog. It was so fun for me to truely meet you.It doesn't suprise me that you are a teacher. Somehow life has drawn me to teachers, they are always my favorite people.We have the same favorite movie and book. My honey and I have been sweethearts for 42 years and married 38 of those. After the movie we were the last to leave and we stood in the aisle hugging and crying[yes both of us], it would have made a great commercial for the movie. Thanks for all the visit to my space and all your great words of kindness to myself and others. Kathysue

I adore how you have your pretty plates arranged on the wall behind the wood burner. I, too, have a wood burning stove with the pipe all the way to the ceiling, as your's is. I found it hard to decorate behind that pipe but have finally come up with something that looks pretty good. I do love a fire in this fireplace...so warm. Can't wait for winter...
Oh, and I am looking for your kitchen...
love, bj
