Welcome to the dining room! As you may recall, this area opens up into the living room. Maybe one day I'll make up a floor plan in Paint or something for you. Anyway, how about more pictures less talking?
This is the view as you enter from the hallway or as you turn around on the couch. Our table usually isn't pushed against the wall, but is helpful when vacuuming. We have two additional chairs--wooden and fold-up-- that we break out for company. Buying a new table and chairs is on my wish list, but I have expensive taste and I think we'll be waiting awhile. Ugh.
Here's a closer look at our artwork. All except the right-most poster were purchased from Powerhouse Factories, a local company. The poster on the right is from a CD release party for our friend's band.
This little guy was printed by an art teacher within my district. It hangs to the left of the kitchen entry. This was one of the first songs that my niece, Macey, learned to sing and I still hear her little voice when I see the print.
The green shelf (sorry about the quality of the photo) is from Brad's sister. We use it to house cookbooks, bobble heads, serving dishes, and larger items like the crockpot.
Here are some of my favorite serving dishes. The tiny birds are actually salt and pepper shakers.
Our cake topper has been snuck in here for safe keeping, too.
Brad's DeLorean and Reds bobblehead collection have a shelf all to themselves.
I'll try and get some pictures of the kitchen soon, but it's really nothing to write home about.
