Welcome to our home.
Pictured below is my imagined self. I am wearing the crown, because I'm the self proclaimed Queen-of-Austerity. Honestly, I am not one to boast about myself. But, I've been told many times that I have a "knack" for finding "stuff" on the cheap, and for utilizing my treasures for decorating. Sure, I don't need to spend money foolishly, but it IS my guilty pleasure - better yet, my passion - to collect, recreate and decorate... And I don't spend a heck of a lot. I've been told our small house is like a museum (which actually made me feel old, damn it)....Oh, dear! I've digressed. Below is our small dining room - show-cased tonight out of sheer boredom and the silly inspiration of a candelabra.
|See the *chairs behind the carafes? You won't believe what I paid for a set of 4! Details are what makes a smashing dinner party!|
|Our small dining room is a bar and mini Medieval Great Room!|
|My inspiration for posting... This pewter candelabra cost $2.00 at a local resale shop!!! Yes. Two Dollars.|
|Another view of dining room Chairs. See the knight in the background? Free.|
|Note the ornate "place mat"? It is actually a gold-painted antique register cover. Thinking Outside The Box.....|
