This week's 'corner' is the dining room. My sewing machine and related stuff are gone; I've washed down the furniture and woodwork and steam cleaned the carpet. A whole drawer was freed up for linens that now have a lovely lavender scent.
This is a stained glass window that came from an older house we used to own. We still have not figured out what the yellow mound and green pyramid shape are supposed to symbolize?
The plate shelf unit was made by my father-in-law who was a wonderful carpenter. On it I keep my Wedgewood 'Hedge Rose' plates, which I found at a tag sale. The dresser came from a garage sale and holds linens and silverware.
A close up of some of the needlepoint-most from flea markets-that I have made into pillows.
I love this oak table because it once belonged to nuns, who had a beautiful retreat on the lake. It was auctioned off when the retreat was closed. The 'pointy' valence was made from old linen damask tablecloths. My corner cabinet and pitchers were mentioned here. The only items in the room purchased new are the wicker chairs.
A couple more needlepoint pillows...
Now that I have cleared out my sewing stuff, my 'artist' daughter has been using this spot for drawing and watercolors. It has good light, and at least they look much nicer there than my clutter did!
