Show and Tell

Welcome to Friday's Show and Tell hosted by Kelli one of my favorite places to visit.


Today I am showing a little corner of my sort of dining room. My dining room is part of one long narrow room. One end is the living area and the other end is the dining area. It is a multipurpose room with t.v. seating,computer and the dining. The living area is dark. The furniture is in deep reds, and burgundys, and hunter greens. The dining area is my favorite part it is White. Take a look.

This piece is an old chifarobe. I am not sure how to spell that. It has been in my family for over 60 years. It started out with my older sister then was passed to me then passed to my daughter. It has gone from original pine, to primitive black and now to white. I love this piece.
Right now it serves as a sidebar when we have a big dinner. In side I store my rotissierie (sp) and in the drawers are napkins and candles. But on top are some special pieces.
Here is a closer look at part of them.

Not only are they just so sweet but the photography is so much better don't you agree?
I won these lovely pieces in a giveaway! I had no idea what the prize would be till I opened the package. They fit so perfectly. And they were the reason I moved the chifarobe to the dining room. As I think back they started it all. I think they look great and just make the grouping.
I have to give credit. They were made by Renee. I love her blog and you have to visit her. Here's her link. I hope you've enjoyed the little corner of my dining room.
But before you go if you drop in over at my other blog you can enter my current Gift a Way.

At first, I thought it was an icebox. I like that it is painted white. And I like that you've made each area separate by defining the color scheme. The bird pieces are lovely and they do look right where they are.
