The Dining Room in The Little House

Hello, Dear Ones!
Today I'm showing you the dining room in The Little House. Below is the before snap when the walls were that mustardy color!
The after...Mikey, our handyman, painted this space with 'Biscuit' from Sherwin Williams. I love it! There was only a pot light in here so we bought a little chandy and guess who put it up for us? Mikey! :) His name is Mike but I call him Mikey because I can!
I restrained myself and allowed Mr. Precious to pick out the chandy. He picked this one. It's kinda rusticy Texasy funky. It's growing on me though. Each little globe has a star on it - Texas - The Lone Star State. Somehow shiny baubles hanging down didn't seem to fit in here.
We brought over the little round table and chairs from the breakfast room from the 'sold' house. It's a teeny little space as you can see so the little round table and chairs fit just fine. Wait a minute! Is that an orb floating around in the dining room above the table on the left? See it? Oh, no, I believe it's the ghost of the mustardy color trying to bleed through!! :)
 
I picked up that cute mirror years ago from Marshall's for about $15. I had no place to hang her at the 'sold' house but just couldn't get rid of her. I don't think you can see it but but the mirror has beveling around it. I'm so glad I hung on to her because she looks nice hanging here with some Pink Willow hanging around her. That top plate on the right is very old and a little bit smaller than the others, but hey! :)
 Okay, let's stop and smell the roses for a moment! :)These were from Mother's Day.
Do you like this cute little china cabinet? Well, it was my little mother's and I just had to keep it. My Daddy bought this for her when I was about 12 years old and I used to get to Old English it. So I poked in a few dishes, tossed some greens on top along with a cabbage plate and a Rooster.
 My little mother would love this!
 You know me. :)
I won a Scentsy jar from Debbie who blogs at Debbiedoos many years ago but it got packed. So I went to Walmart (am I becoming a Walmart shopper?) again and found this fake one from Better Homes and Gardens called a wax warmer and for just $15! Pretty, huh?

Remember...come back for more. Hope you're enjoying seeing The Little House. I'm working like a dog trying to all settled in!

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

It's So Easy


It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
People tell me love's for fools
Here I go breaking all of the rules
Seems so easy
Oh so doggone easy
It seems so easy
Yeah where you're concerned
My heart can learn
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
Look into your heart and see
What your love book has set aside for me
It seems so easy
Oh, so doggone easy
It seems so easy
Yeah, where you're concerned
My heart can learn
Oh, it's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
Well, it seems so easy
So doggone easy
It seems so easy
Where you're concerned
My heart has learned
It's so easy to fall in love
It's so easy to fall in love
