Finishing up the Dining room tour

This is the short wall that has the doorway to the foyer. Again, with my love for serving trays, here a repurposed a bathroom towel holder and simply set the silver trays in. I change these out too anytime I find a new tray that I MUST have! I did a blog post earlier on this display here when I talked about style on a budget.
THIS is the top of the black cabinet from the first post....the cage holds my fabulous vintage alarm clocks. I love keeping collections together, it makes more of a statement for sure. I have wired a wooden letter "C" inside the top of the cage. I intended the C to represent my last name, until my daughter simply said "o, cool, C for clocks!" Serendipity :) I used old books inside the cage as well for height varience. I think it looks good like this but won't it be great if I could just FILL it, packed full, with clocks?! Gotta keep shopping.

The last wall to share with you is my favorite. It all started with this wonderul window I, over 10 years ago.....geez time flies! I recently found the framed vintage picture above it at a resale shop...perfect fit. I made the banner that states our last name. I also made the silhouette canvases, one says Mr. and the other Mrs. for each side.         
Well, thats my dining room! Hope you had fun looking around! Stop back soon. Don't forget to become a blog follower! Would love to have you. Also, leave a comment, I love reading them. :)
