I decided to move my table at an angle....which makes my dining room look roomier. See the plaque propped in the chair in the background? Scroll down and you can see it up close. That is my flea market bargain of $3.00. Notice my curtains? They really hang down, I just do that to them during the day so I can see the beautiful view of the PITIFUL wheat field...well, now it is just stubble and hopefully will soon be soybeans. FIVE bushels and ACRE.....arrrgggh.

This is the other side of dining room. The dark wall is a recessed area w/ my pantry on the left and the entrance to master bedroom on the right. You can do a search of my site to see other pics of the house. I need to show you the girls' rooms....I don't think I've posted them before. I'll save that for another post.
This is a great little dish I got FOR FREE...minus the handle. I was at a thrift store and found an ugly dish with a handle for $3.00. Bought the whole thing, took off the handle and gave the other dish to dd #3....she is a collector. Isn't it precious?
This is my revolving cart.....I keep changing it around...still haven't found exactly what I want to put on it. If you look really close or click the picture, you will see that there are the cutest crocheted "candle" holders in that bowl on the bottom shelf. At least that is what I THINK they are.....anyone know any different? I'm going to see if I can find the right sized candled to fit them. I got those at an outdoor flea market in Spencer, Oklahoma....which is like a mini-mini Canton. I need to do a post just on the Family Camping book....it is so fun to read.

Here is my $3.00 plaque that will be spray painted off white and hung above my back door. Isn't it charming? Oh, and that Costco chair? I got it for $6.00 at the Spencer Flea Market....The guy is probably divorced...his wife was quite upset that he quoted me that price. I snatched it up since I haven't found once for less than $20.00 in that great of shape. The only problem area is that little scratch on the seat....I can live with that.
