Dinning Room Pict’s ~ Some New Goodies

Hello All!

And Happy Father’s Day to any Dad’s out there who may read this. :)

First off, I want to start this post with some random 4th of July pictures. 

I do not own any of these.  And to be honest, I don't remember where I got them from.  Just here and there throughout the years.

But I want to share them with you all to use on blog post or craft projects.

Please click on photo to pull up larger picture, then rick click and save to your computer.










Hope you enjoy them. 

I took some photos of my dining room to share with everyone.

I am not real happy with the way the photos turned out.

I took them during the day and I prefer to take pictures at night.  When I take pictures during the day time, they always turn out so dark.


Here they are:


I need something for this corner.

I move the red cabinet into my living room, now this space is so bare!!

I have picked out a hanging corner cabinet from Backwoods Country Primitives Furniture. 

Click on their name to see a photo of it on their blog.

I love it so!! As soon as I get some extra money I am going to buy one.

I'm trying to save for the Longest Yard Sale in August…. and right now well…. not doing too good!! :)








Notice the bowls on the middle shelf to the left hand side.

Well, here is one of the down falls of having a rotten feisty inside cat.

He was chasing a fly yesterday when I left for work.

And when I came home….

Fly was still alive but my bowl wasn’t!!


No it wasn't Charlie that did this.

Not my good little boy.  I KNOW who the guilty party was.  My son’s cat Wheezy!! Yep, I know it was him. ;)

Okay, now back to the dining room photos.










These are some of my prized possessions.  Antique, pontil bottom jars with original tin lids.



My Grandpa’s tin horn.


My FIL gave me these.  They were originally his Aunts.



The view from the living room into the dinning room.



Just some random close-up photos.













Another toy of my Grandpa’s.  He hand carved this when he was a little boy.


I went to GW the other day and got these two jars with wooden lids.  I believe they were meant to be canisters.

I painted the lids in an aged black and put prim labels on front.

Labels came from Yankee Lane Primitives. I love her creations!!






I also went to a craft antique store inside WF Outlet mall and got these.

Another Rockingham YW custard bowl.

I just LOVE Rockingham sponge/swirl design yellow ware.


I got these two cutter quilts pillows.  I originally was going to display them on my chairs.



But I changed my mind and decided to put them on my settle.

I moved the little stitchery pillows over to my chair with my prim doll.



I also made a couple of Abe silhouettes.

I got this idea from Evelyn when I won her Colonial Giveaway.

So I decided to give it a try with Lincoln.

Lastly, I wanted to share some photos of a storm front that came through a couple of days ago.

I hate storms and these had me pretty freaked out.

They were so low.  It looked like a tornado could pop out any second.

Luckily, all that came from it was A LOT of rain and some fierce lightening.

It was day time when I took these, even though the storm clouds made it look like night.





Also, don't forget I am having a Christmas in July Giveaway. Winner will be announced July 8th.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me.

Until Next Time….

Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings To You ALL!!

It all looks so wonderful. I especially like your Grandfather's handmade toy.

Sorry about the bowl. . .been there, done that. Can you glue it back together and turn the crack towards the wall? We had to do that with somethings.

Sandy said...

I really love your dining room. Thanks for giving us a tour :) You have some wonderful collections, I really love your redware collection.

Everything looks wonderful! You do such a great job decorating!

I am sorry about your bowl! I am sure you were sick about it!

Those storm clouds were scary! I was driving home when the blew up and could wait to get out of the car.

I hope you have a wonderful week!

You really know how to decorate. You always give me such great ideas!

So glad that storm didn't produce a tornado. The sky really did look scary.

Sorry about the bowl. A few years ago I bought myself a green McCoy bowl off of ebay and within 10 minutes of me unpacking it from it's shipping box my cat tried to sit in it. Since it was about ten sizes too small for his butt he ended up tipping it over and knocking it off the counter and breaking it. I have it glued together and on a high cabinet shelf now.

Heather said...

Wow, what a charming blog and home you have here! I came over from primpals :) I LOVE that blue chair and the pretty dolly with the little stitchy pillows....Oh, I need to get collecting! :)
nice to meet you!~

Paula-Pieces from the Past said...

Tammy-I just love your place and the colors are all so pretty. So sorry about your yellow ware bowl :( Bad Kitty!!! >^..^<

I love that Rockingham sponge pattern too and I have one of those small custard bowls at my kitchen sink and I keep my little sponge there!

Those clouds looked pretty ominous...yikes and glad it did not produce any of those swirly things!!!

I just love the pics of your place-such an inspiration

Tammy: Is that a hoosier cabinet that I see? Did you refinish it or is it original? It's gorgeous!! I would love to own one of those! Also love the jars you found and the labels that you used. where do you get your labels from?

That is a wonderfully prim cabinet and would look great in that corner. I've been debating about shelves over my windows. I really like how you have yours displayed. I don't have quite as much room between my ceiling and window as you so I'm not sure it would look good like yours does. Hmm...

Uh oh! Hopefully you can salvage the bowl and put the cracks in the back. It's too pretty not to try it.

I enjoyed your dining room pictures and also pictures of your prized possessions. Mine usually come from somewhere in the family like yours.

Thanks for the link to Yankee Lane Primitives. I knew they had wonderful labels, but couldn't remember the name. It is now bookmarked! I'm getting some for sure. They are prim lovely! They look great on your wonderful wooden lid jars!

That is a very nice Lincoln silhouette! I will have to try that. We are making our living room a patriotic room. Our family loves Abe Lincoln so I have been collecting things for that room. This would look wonderful in there!

Glad you only got some rain and no tornado or damage with those awful looking storm clouds!

I love your blog Tammy! So glad you came by mine so I could find yours! =]
