De-Cluttering the Dining Area

I love putting up all my Christmas decorations but I am also really happy to get them down! By the time Christmas is over I am ready to de-clutter my house!!!
So I did that last week and over the weekend cleaned house and put things back together.
I kept it simple. Which feels so good.
The living room and dining room are one in the same. They share the same space. The table is an antique I bought at a garage sale. It is a square table that has two leaves that come out of the ends and pop up. Usually I leave it as a square but thought I would mix things up a bit and pop the leaves out.

 I am really liking it. It almost make the dining area look bigger. Weird I know.

I have a wreath that I might put above the mantel.

 I LOVE Ironstone. All of which came from garage sales.

I am really loving the old brick and new mantel.
I hope you don't get tired of seeing pictures of the much loved mantel!


  1. I really, really like your mantel! The old brick has so much more character and softer tones than the newer brick did.
    By the way, I am glad you are o'kay after your close call with the hot furnace! Enjoying your blog!

  2. I"m loving the blue color in your "new" room...I gotta stop and see it in person...
