Show Us Your Life Fridays - Dining Room

It's that time again, Kelly's Korner is hosting a weekly "Show Us your Life" series and right now it is showing where we live.  You can check out her blog plus the many (and I mean many!) other bloggers who have linked up to show their dining rooms here

So here is my dining room :-)  I hope you enjoy it!

This is the view into my dining room from the living room towards the kitchen.  The dining room is the room that you have to go through to access any and all rooms in my house so it is our central location for all things.  Amazingly, the only extra thing on the table is a truck ;-)  I love my picture wall on the far wall.  I think family pictures make a room so warm and inviting.  The table was my parents - when they purchased a new one, we took this one.  It works for us for now but someday, I hope to get one of my own :-)  And the curtains, which inspired my eggplant walls, are my sister-in-laws.  She had her dining room in the same color and had extra curtains!  I love the color on my walls - it makes me happy!

How could I not post this part of my dining room? LOL  He sees the camera and wants a picture :-)

From the other end, standing by the kitchen, looking towards the living room

And from the opposite corner - my "music room" - we had to squeeze my piano in here after moving my desk to the living room. (Plus two cute little boys!)

This is one of my favorite things - my husband and I went to Frankenmuth and walked through a glass shop - I fell in love with this because it reminded me of our two cats we had at the time.  Several months later, he called and ordered it for me as gift.  I was completely shocked when I opened it :-)

I like this little corner - the table belonged to my husband's family, plus lots of family pictures and just lots of pretty things :-)
I hope you enjoyed your little tour :-)  You can participate too - just click on the link to Kelly's blog and "Lin up!"
