christmas centerpiece…

my centerpiece this christmas started with an old architectural piece as the base.  I added a small wreath, candle and crown to it.

my dining room is all put back together, (after removing old french doors from the back wall, and adding patio doors to the adjacent wall. 
the room is only 9’ x 10’, and the french doors really took up too much room when opened.  the slider works so much better with the small area.

and here’s a peek of my new kitchen—love the farm sink!  we still have some lighting and trim work to do.   I’ll show the rest of it soon.

  20. Morning Lynn, I've never seen the skirting before around a dining room table...it looks beautiful! And your farmsink,window and wreaths grab my heart. The farmhouse I sold in the Spring had a huge window double window above the sink similar to yours(one thing I insisted when I had built the house) and I would put wreaths on it too! I have a architectural base I've been saving so I am anxious to use in the cottage! Can you tell me where you purchased/ordered your sink? Ikea is the only one around here you can buy without having to order. Thanks....I love visiting your home!! Blessings~~~Roxie
