The Brownsfield Dining Room

A little masculine flair to the dining room.  The carvings on this buffet table are gorgeous.  It's not an antique, just a replica. 
My new curtains which I made myself!  Well, actually it's just two panels sewn together with added trim.  That's about as much sewing as I'm capable of!  I wanted a really long window treatment to accentuate the arch.  In my previous house, I had custom made window treatments which cost around $1200.  These- less than $200!  Not nearly as nice of course, but they look good don't ya think?  Below is my antique hutch which I will never part with.  It's actually an English dresser.  They used to "dress" their food on these.
Pumpkin and candy corns for fall!

A fall wreath to add a little holiday warmth.

These are part of my crystal collection.
Antique cake plates.  I love cake plates!

Fall 09 on Brownsfield Lane

Had to be a copycat  and paint my address numbers on the pumpkins.  Love how they turned out.  My porch is not all that big so I wanted to keep it simple, not cluttered.  Happy Fall Y'all!

The foyer

Here's a peek into my house, as promised!  This is the foyer.  Do you see Mr. and Mrs. W welcoming you into the home?  I've had these statues for a very long time and have carefully packed them on each move.  This time they seemed to work on the foyer table.  I love how Mr. W is peering around the plant after a hard day's work in the garden!  haha  (You know we are not gardeners.)

Brownsfield Lane

Another new address. I've lost count of the addresses I've had in my life but it's always exciting to get a new house. This is our new residence right before we bought it. I'm using the blog to keep friends/family updated on my progress. You know how I love to decorate! We've changed out the hardware on the front door. The big debate was to leave the door black or paint it red. Since James doesn't have a lot of time right now, I decided to be nice to him and leave it black. We've also trimmed up that crepe myrtle in front of the big window. More pictures to come. Still trying to figure out the blog thing.

First Day to Blog!

Today is my first day to blog! For some reason, I've never been into blogging before now so I'm a little lost at the moment. Just thought it'd be fun to post about our family and home. I'll be test running things for a while!
