My Favorite Room

No one has ever asked me what my favorite room was. It didn't take me long to figure it out dining room in my lake house is my favorite room of all!
Let me count the ways:

  1. I have my very favorite piece of furniture in this room. My green country hutch.
  2. My prized collections of purple transferware and amethyst glass are in this room.
  3. Purple is the main color in this room. I have loved purple since I was a little girl.
  4. With the exception of the green hutch, everything in this room is old and comes from consignment shops, thrift stores, swap shops, old relatives and friends, and remnant tables. I love how you can make a room yours with a little ingenuity.
  5. The once hated chandelier that hangs in the room is enchanting now that I have strung it with amethyst drapery trim and purple teardrop crystals.
  6. Amazingly enough, this is the one room I didn't repaint. It was purple when I bought this house!
  7. The chairs came from a yard sale and they are the epitome of country elegance.
  8. This room has a double set of french doors, and I am mad for french doors!
  9. This room is where my family gathers for family dinners and special parties and where many happy moments transpire.
These are the reasons my Lake House dining room is my favorite room!

This question was posed to me

Thanks for making me take the time
 to appreciate my dining room Blayne!


  1. This was fun reading why you like the things in your dining room, though I already knew you love purple and have collected purple transferware. I love this room to! The colors are soft, relaxing and cheerful at the same time.

    Thank you so much for your email to! That was sooooo sweet and so nice of you. I was truly flattered and felt honored when you mentioned your inspiration for your window project, which I've thought of all weekend, btw!
    When you all get the RV, I mean come see us! What fun! Shawn (my hubby) wants to get one someday to.

    Have a great week!


  2. Hey, I also just put your new pink swing button on my blog. I had to change it a tiny bit because there were some extra html that showing up. I deleted it and added the code to center it at the beginning and end. I tried to paste the code here but blogger wouldn't let me. If you need it I can email it to you. I tested it and it works.


  3. Hi Amy,
    Your dining room is charming! Your blog is lovely and I will add it to my favorites list.


  4. Beautiful!!! I am one of the many people who told you a while back how much I love that kitchen photo (I used it in my blog a time or two, last year) - well, I used it today as my "me" photo.

  5. Can you send me the hutch? I love the green
