And because you have inspired me with all your sweet comments on my old bedroom…
The staircase leading to the dining room below my old little bedroom featured in a snippet of a photograph a few posts ago.
See the bay window with the rosemary plant? The tiny space and the bay window mirror the bedroom above!
So many times I have come down these steps imagining I was back in time, say 1850 when the house was built. I heard the family used to have parties and dancing in this room. I can only imagine what it was like.
And here’s the whole dining room (my second favorite room in the house!) View from the staircase
What a lovely room my mom has created! See the mantle? A doctor lived in the house and was terrified of fire. He had all of the fireplaces blocked off. Another view: the staircase and bay window:
The colorful peacock wallpaper is the best, it graced the walls when my family moved in.
Because I just have to share here’s the bay window in the little bedroom that won my heart (I wish I could take down those frilly curtains as they conceal the most beautiful wavy stained glass!)
The perfect reading nook.
I have a secret I would like to share. The next post here will feature a really super giveaway. Please come back to visit soon.
