Room By Room-Dining Room

This year, I am hosting Thanksgiving so I have spent a lot of time in the dining room getting ready..cleaning..changing..changing again. So I thought I would do one of my room by room posts of my dining room. This room has quite a few of my favorite things...some of it I could do different posts on like the 1800's clock I bought at a barn sale in the hills of VA for $200.00 and now is worth much much more! When the clock man told me...I felt like I was on the Antique Roadshow or the Price is Right b/c I was jumping up and down:)!

Welcome to my dining room....

Oops..that candle is leaning...excuse me while I fix that....




This is an old tea cart..it holds all my teacups and tea books!

I love your tea cart!!! I am a huge tea fan-cups, saucers, teapots! I think I need a tea cart-but I don't think I have a place to put it!
Have fun hosting Thanksgiving...we are heading up to the cottage with my family Friday-but going to the LIONS game on Thanksgiving...a little different for us...
