Keeping Busy

Today has been a busy busy day! I have been going non stop trying to get the house back to feeling like our home. I painted some more trim and cleaned up that. Then I started to move things back to where they went and reworked them as well. I did the lil' side area next to the fireplace and then the foyer. Today I will share the little side area next to the fireplace.

Here is the little side area earlier this year before we started ripping everything up. 

Here is where the antique dresser and a ton of other things went for some time. Can I tell you how excited I am to have our bedroom back!!??

Lil' antique dresser back in its spot. I am wanting to find a new lamp for here. I keep checking HomeGoods and HobLob but so far nothing.

I love my little Ikea clock.

I kept things rather simple.

I still need to find a picture for this darling frame but no time for that right now.

I stole this sconce from the landing amongst other things. Now I have to redo the landing but that is what makes  this all the more fun!;)

Hope you are having a great day! Now back to laundry and seeing if I can move some stuff into the office before The Hubster gets home. I doubt it but I am sure gonna try. Also enjoying the fact that not one but both my boys are taking a nap!! That has not happened in years y'all!
Linking up to the following linky parties:

Brunch for Four

This morning the boys and I were invited by Marci from over at The Old Oak Cottage to enjoy brunch with her at Poppy's Tea Room. It is an adorable little cafe/bistro/shop in Huffman Tx.

This is Kathye the owner and she is just as adorable and a great hostess!

There are I think 6 little rooms here all with different names that you can choose to dine in. This was our room and I think it was called The Paris Room. There is even a hot pink room that is just perfect for a little girls birthday party.

Super yummy scones and muffins and fruit!

Don't these quiches look yummy too!? After we brunched Marci and I chatted a bit about her upcoming trip to the Atlanta Market. I can not wait to see what she comes back with!

Afterwards we shopped a bit. Kathye has some wonderful treasures all around! I really wanted this mirror and for just $60 I thought it was a good deal. I may have to check back for it in a few weeks. The frame is just to die for. I can see it sitting on our fireplace mantle can't you!?

Vintage wedding dresses.

I also love this pair of Victorian frames. They were $40 for the pair which I thought was not bad but still a bit more than I wanted to spend on them. I may be checking back for those as well!;)

 I did bring this home. I love me some chunky ornate frames and was excited when I saw it was only $12! Oh the possibilities this lil' frame holds!

Sorry the pictures were not the best quality. I forgot my camera and the cell camera was just not happy. If you head over to Kathye's FaceBook page she has much better pictures!

Poppy's Tea Room is so very delightful and definitely worth a visit if you live in the area. If you do stop by tell Kathye Pamela sent ya!:)

Thank you Marci for inviting us! We had a great time and thank you Kathye for being such a great hostess!

So what have you been up to today?
 Linking up to Treasure Hunt Thursday over at Rhonda's!
Also linking up over at Rhoda's for Thrifty Treasure Highlights!

The Evolution of a Dining Room

Hey y'all! Hope your week has started off well. As you know we just finished our flooring reno and as promised here are some  more pics. The first and only room I have 100% done is the dining room. Come along and see our dining room from the very beginning.

I did say the very beginning!;) Our dining room when we purchased our home.

Our dining after we moved in. Note the chandy change.

The dining room after I finally chose a paint color and yes, trust me when I tell ya it is a differ color from before.

Our dining room before demo. Pardon the lack of light.
Demo completed. Notice the plastic wrapped curtains!:)

And without further ado our dining room today! 

This is the view from the hallway to the kitchen. I love all the natural light! It does though make it hard for picture taking at times. 

The new chandy and all of its bling.

I changed up the table display to this. The huge cloche went to sit on the kitchen table. 

I had just recently redone the buffet display before we tore this room up so I just put it back the same way. I did though add one thing. Can you guess what it is?

I found this runner at HomeGoods in the clearance section for just $12. I had been looking for one forever it seems and had even brought several home all to be returned. This one I think is just perfect.

I finally hung our Pottery Barn votive holder after two years of it just leaning on the wall in several places thru out the home. I think this is a good spot for it. I also found a place for the old buffet mirror. 

To add some color to the votive holders I added some moss and placed some battery votives in them.  I really wish I could find votives that do not glow orange but white.

Now this wall is still waiting for some loving.  All in all though I think our dining room has come a long way!
