A Sunshine Filled Dining Room

Hi friends.


It’s been since Christmas since I posted anything on here.  I have still been stalking your blogs but just haven’t had time to post myself.  It’s good to be back today.


Tennessee temps were in the high fifties today and the sunshine filled our house.  A perfect day for picture taking and since my dining room was newly cleaned, it got picked.

Look at that sunshine…

These plates are a favorite thing of mine in this room.

Another favorite thing is this old German dough bowl.  It’s big and it’s heavy and has so much charm.

A cabinet full of ironstone and other vintage dishes…just couldn’t get much better…unless of course I had more.

Have mercy on me with all of the pictures.  Remember that it’s been awhile. 


My friends, I miss spending time with you. 


Blessings to you all….

It's absolutely beautiful Amy! Such a peaceful and happy room. Love the pops of blue. It was a glorious day in KY also - I actually replanted houseplants on my back patio. Have a great week!

I love the ironstone, and that bread bowl is fantastic! We're enjoying the sunshine here as well before it turns super-cold again this week!

How pretty. I see seem of my favourites among your dishes. Sigh ironstone and vintage dishes... play the perfect tune to me as well.
Happy week!

It was such a beautiful day wasn't it Amy? I love these pictures. I'm trying to think what my favorite thing is - it just might be the dough bowl!! Sure love it all - so gorgeous! ~ Dori ~

Your home is filled with radiant sunlight, indeed!!! I adore the brightness streaming in the windows and illuminating all of your gorgeous ironstone!
Such a subtle, tranquil color palette within the walls of your dining room! Loving the turquoise PoPs of color sprinkled lighty throughout the room, too!!!
You've been missed! I was thrilled to see your post in my newsfeed today, dear friend!!!

Hi Amy I stumbled upon your site through Suburbs Mamas blog and I must say God has given you a talent for decorating, for sure. I came across your site because of the name. I like being inspired from other peoples decorating/tips. Do you follow others using I would love to follow you. God Bless :) Rachel

Holly said...

Everything is gorgeous. Love it all. It was a great weather day here in GA too!

Sheila said...

Hi Amy,
I hope all is good with you and the family....Love, love, love your table so rustic and chic. I also like the crotchet lace above the windows such a sweet touch along with the sign above the doorway.

Have a blessed week!!!

What fun to see your pictures here today, Amy. Miss seeing you around-so I was glad to see you here today- xo Dia na

Debbie said...

...but I love all the pictures! No mercy needed from me.

I love the way this looks, and my favorite part is the use of the cotton. I had some out at Christmas, but I put it away until maybe fall. I love it (cotton in a room) so much that I try to employ the "pumpkin latte effect" with it. You know, that's where you keep certain things for just a limited time. I TRY to do the same with dried hydrangeas, but I always bring them back out, no matter what the season.

Beautiful and so very AMY.

Your dining room is beautiful. I too, LOVE the dough bowl. I have been looking for an affordable one for some time. Everything looks great but my favorite would have to be the cart by the door holding your pretty.
