Show Us Where You Live Friday!

It's Frrrrriiiiday, and once again time for "Show us where you live" Friday hosted by "Kelly's Korner"! Last week we couldn't participate because we don't technically have a guest room--but we do have a dining area! Enjoy yet another, sneek peek into our home! :) Our dining area-it keeps with the Italian bistro theme from the kitchen. This room also has the tall ceilings that you saw in the kitchen & living room.

Another view from the kitchen. Yes we do have Dominic's high chair set up at the table. We want him to get familiar with eating at the table. He does like to sit and watch us eat--for some reason, it's funny to him!

I love this light fixture-it's so unique. Lou bought it from "Village Lighting", a local lighting store.

Our table is also pretty tall-which looks good with the tall ceilings. I don't think a "normal" size table would look right in here.

Our dinnerware. We looked forever for something different with our taste. We found this set at JC Penny's. Oh-and we do have fine Chinaware...if you can recall I did win some beautiful China when I won The Price is Right! Thanks Bob Barker! :)
I loved having fresh flowers on our table, but it was getting 1)hard to have fresh flowers EVERYDAY and 2) annoying to move the vase at every meal because Lou & I couldn't see each other while we were eating. I found this interesting "garden" piece at Lowe's. Can you believe this is real? It looks plastic! I thought it was really neat--and it can "stay put" during meals!

I'm not going to lie, I don't know what all of these mean haha! I do know the last one says bread & wine. I found these at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I really like them.

There's an overlook to the left of the table. You can see down to the door going out to the garage. You can also see the other lighting fixture Lou picked out (he's really good isn't he!?!).

A zoomed in view. I love this lantern look. It's almost nautical, which is fitting because we live right on Lake Erie!

Just a close up view of the lighting fixture above the table. You can also kinda see the overlook. Having a week off-made me kinda rusty with the camera work!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's kitchens! This is so much fun! :)
