Dining Room Summer Updates

Becca From Gardners Two Bergers is featuring
our dining room remodel project.
(The same pink Raoul fabric from the living room is used on 
lumbar pillows here and slipcovers are brought back for summer).

Becca does all sorts of cool DIY projects on her blog.  
One that I am working on is her 
You can get the recipes for yourself.

Also...
please visit Emily A. Clark 
for "Mother Knows Best" to learn what this little lady in white has taught us. 
Emily knows a thing or two also 
as a mother of three and soon to be five!


I got a new camera for Mother's Day...
hopefully I will have some better photos to show you soon...have bit of a learning curve.  
My son, Tommy took my new profile photo with it...he was making me laugh.
Happy Belated Mother's Day!

  8. Table looks wonderful. So many people have trouble getting all of the elements together for a tablescape. Perhaps you can share a list of things you feel necessary for every table to look fabulous?

  18. Mary Ann,
    Love the mirror and shell prints on the wall. The table looks so fresh for spring/summer.
    Ohhh, I've wanted to graduate to an adult camera but have been hesitant. Once you've learned your new camera, post the details for us. I need one that still has some auto features, baby steps away from my point and shoot.
    Have a great week.

  19. Pretty dining room! Love the fig tree, shell botanicals and pretty chairs with slipcovers. Let us know how you like your camera, I need to graduate also but am addicted to the ease and size of my little one. I bought one last year but gave it to our daughter who is hopefully using it to document her life in NYC. Have a great spring day Mary Ann!

  28. Love your new photo, Mary Ann! I'm inspired now to pull in pink for summer...though my oriental rug calls for more of a salmon pink. We'll see if I can make that work! Thanks for the ideas!
