Little Hall Table and Bavarian Tirschenreuth Demitasse Set

Hi all! I hope you are all having a great week! Today, I decided to show you a little table that I have sitting by the doll cabinet in the back hall, leading to the guest rooms.

I keep a lot of decorating magazines in it.

On top of the table, I have my son and daughter in law's wedding picture, along with 2 Asian figures and an orchid.

Above the table top is a wall shelf that is shaped like a book. On top of it are some small potteries, a pottery box and a little picture with an inscription saying "A mother holds her children's hands for a little while, their hearts forever".......So true! This was given to me by my youngest daughter when she was young. Above the shelf is a shadow box with an

Indonesian doll.

It's a little wall since I have a built in doll cabinet there (which is really a gun cabinet) that I transformed.

Now, let's go to the formal living room and have some tea! I have a black Bavarian Tirschenreuth demitasse set sitting on the side table. It has peach, pale yellow and orange roses on the pieces.

Lastly, I would like to share our neighbor's home (the one across from us) with you. I just want to show you her lovely flowers, azaleas, in front of her house. Aren't they gorgeous?

Here is a close up.

What a sweet picture of your son and DIL.....I love your front view! I wish I had your view....mine is lacking in many ways but I guess our trees block most of it. At least the Spring and Summer brings the leaf coverage :)
Hope you had a great Monday!
