House Tour- Living and Dining Room

 I had to get my house all spiffy for a recent meeting held there, so I thought I better pull out the camera and document the cleanliness.  A rare occurrence, indeed.
 You walk into our foyer (thanks, Captain Obvious, I know).  I'd love to someday change out the black slate for herringbone brick to match the front porch, but that will be waaaayy down the road, if ever.  Morgan loves the slate.  So does Buddy's fur.
To the right is the formal living room.

 My Erin Gregory print, which I just adore.  Someday I will have the extraneous cash to buy the real thing.  I found the oyster piece at an art fair down in Watercolor- it's glazed oyster shells affixed to a canvas.

The lamps are from Overstock.com- sold out now, but I'm sure they have similar ones.

On the rare chance I get the opportunity to talk on the phone, this is my spot.  I curl up in my chair, look out the windows and chat away.

Every single item of furniture in this room is either a hand me down, or from an estate sale.  Oh, with the exception of the little wooden garden stool next to the blue wingback- it's from Cost Plus World Market.
  On the other side of the foyer is the dining room.

 On the to-do list in here is a new chandelier, and recovering the dining room chairs.  The chairs and table were an incredible Craigslist find- it's Baker, and I got the set for $250.  What a find!

So that's the fancy part of my house- not too fancy obviously, as nothing cost over about $200.00.  With small children who love to chase each other, and a furry dog who loves to sneak up on furniture when the house is empty, this is just how I like it.
