I've tried to use some of my favorite things, yet not let my "clutter" reappear. It's hard to teach an old lady new tricks! At Mary Ann's advise, I'm trying to make this room a place we will use more often, and not just be an over flow area, used only when company comes. Our family has grown & it's time to spread out!
...most of which I've found deeply discounted at T J Maxx!
Instead of being tucked away & unused, they are now easily accessible & I plan to use them!This print came from Chautauqua of the Arts Festival that used to be held annually at Mill Race Park. I had it framed & for a while it was in one of the bedrooms. Just a couple of days ago, I saw it hiding in a bedroom closet & knew that it would fit right in my new dining room.
The print is of Irwin Gardens, the former Irwin-Sweeney home. Just this past year the gardens were closed to the public & the beautiful home was put on the market. It recently sold & is opening next week as an exclusive Bed & Breakfast! So, the gardens will never be as they were, & it made this print just that much more special. More bird prints that I already had!
And window treatments...being tossed around in my head.
