If It's Not Broken...

Well, the saying around here is actually, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," but I couldn't let myself title a post anything with that many grammatical errors.

Anyway, we've been hanging pieces on the walls in the house little-by-little, but the dining room has been behind the curve.  All that we've hung is the plate rack...


...and as you can sort of see here....


...there's not much else going on.

One of my favorite vignettes in the Little Rock was in the dining room...



...so I thought, "Why not re-create that in the Chattanooga house?" If I loved it so much, why not just do the same thing here?

So I did.


I got the mirror for $7 or $8 at a yard sale.


The dishes are an antique store find. (I can't remember which city I found them in. Was it on a trip home to Chattanooga? Was it in Birmingham? Was it at my go-to place in Little Rock. I have no idea. Sad, right?) 



I think cracking enamel is technically not desirable, but it shows that these are old and well-loved.



I love the arrangement even more in this dining room against the blue walls.


Happy Monday! 
...

Even though we didn't live there long, Little Rock is close to my heart. Praying for the healing of  hearts, homes, and land in Arkansas after the recent tornadoes.
