The Entry Way and Office...

The entry way.  Got a candle out...ugh!

This hall tree belonged to a friend's Grandmother and she did not know what to do with it is on loan to me.  I love it...thanks Teresa!

This is my home office (right off the entry way).  We set up a table for 4 in there.  They ended up pulling in two more chairs and sitting 6 in here.

Since the dining room is on the other side of the entry way, we decided to keep the Harvest theme at this table also.  I love the old Brown dishes that my mother had collected my ENTIRE life.

I have several pieces of original art that friends have done in this room...I love it!

I love the splash of red that the poinsettias bring!  The picture next to it is one I found at a flea market.  The seller knew nothing about her, but said she must have been someone of influence as they typically did not do pictures/portraits of African Americans back then.  I named her Calpernia....I think she was a nurse.

Old creamy clocks!

A little fake fire to set the mood!

This is where all the work gets done...well, some work!

My friends from high school always sit in here!  You can hear them laughing all over the house!

Next update will be from the Den.
