As I mentioned before, we've been moving our furniture around... our decorations around... and the cat around. :) Monday I was blessed to have a wonderfully fun day at the outlet mall that is about 45 minutes away. My momma and I had quite a good time, and even found some wonderful trinkets for our homes! Here is our "new and improved" dining room.

Momma found the pretty tablecloth for me a while back, and I picked up the oh-so-cute polka dot plates at the Pottery Barn Outlet... I think I paid 7 dollars for all four. I adore them- but I think I'll save them for decoration and special occasion use only. They're just too cute to risk chipping!

I moved around these things that were originally crammed into our wee kitchen. I think they'll be more visible here- and I could use the extra counter space. And well... I have quite enough cherry things in the kitchen as it is!

We were recently given this sideboard, which used to be hubby's mother's. I love the butterfly handles, and it fits perfectly underneath the painting my brother made for us. I also picked up the sign at the outlet mall. Originally, I was planning to paint it aqua... but I think I like it red. And that's not a tv... that's a digital picture frame (not currently on) that hubby made from several computers his company was throwing away. He's so handy, its amazing!!

Lauren, it's so cute!! And I got my sweet sister-in-law those very same polka-dot plates for her birthday...I found two sets on their clearance section online. They've been using them as every-day dishes since April and they've held up wonderfully! Even with all of the dish-piling that comes with no dishwasher. :)
