Dining Room

Fresh, Clean and Simple! I love how bright and fresh our dining room is right now. Although I dream of a sideboard along the back wall I haven’t found just the right one yet. Also that little basket is waiting for a cute olive tree to fill it. So many of you ask for sources from our dining room so here we go!

A Bright IDEA – silver dipped light bulbs

The month leading into moving day I thought I had a pretty good idea how much work it would be. Well being as I have never really moved before I was in for a big surprise.
