As you already know,
I am a lover of fine china, crystal and silver.
With that being said let me introduce you
to my newest member of...
"The Dining Room"
Isn't she lovely?
I found this beauty at an antique mall south of Nashville in Franklin,Tennessee.
Solid mahogany, made in 1946.
I decided to dress her up in with some crystal pieces
I had collected over the years.
A perfect Traditional addition!
Oh how I would love to know her story.
For some unknown reason,
she reminds me of my grandmother.
My dad, born and raised in South Carolina,
tells me the story of his father
taking my grandmother to Hickory, North Carolina
and purchasing furniture for their new home.
My grandmother selected all the furniture,
her dining room was solid mahogany.
I guess that's where I inherited my love
for traditional cherry and mahogany decor.
My fall addition this year...
very simple :)
and the picture front and center...
my precious girls.
It's my most treasured piece in my home.
Every time I take a glance...
it truly makes my heart smile!
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
