The Dining err Play Room

My living space including the foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen and breakfast nook are all one room so it's kind of hard to define spaces. I had to relinquish some control over the OCD cleaning thing since I had toys have invaded every aspect of my house. I really like my dining room although I basically only use it to sit at the laptop and watch Emerson play kitchen.

I love my dining room table and hutch and buffet. We bought it three years ago at a great store called Circle K that is A-mazing!!! We have extra leaves for the table and it will comfortably fit 8. I don't keep all the leaves in it all the time and we leave two chairs out most of the time unless my whole family gets together. My husband's grandmother left him tons of paper thin Haviland china and what you see displayed pretty much stays up all year long. I like to decorate it at Christmas time and in the fall with pumpkins, gourds, and squash and a couple of the crows before Halloween.

I also have a sideboard that I have also used as a sofa table in the past and now it sits on the other side of the floor length windows in the dining room and it usually has baskets underneath it but now Emerson crawls under it. I put an assortment of Halloween figurines I have picked up through the years.

I eventually would like to have french doors where the two windows are to a deck outside and hardwood floors....this will have to wait on some funding!!! lol!!!
Ofcourse, no post is complete without a picture of Miss Sunshine herself...I dressed her up for the cool fall weather cute!!
