My Favorite Room!

My favorite room is our dining room. I love it because it's the prettiest room in our apartment! HA! Also, we have a curio cabinet that belonged to my Nanny. When we moved, we decided to put the cabinet here. This cabinet has special items in it. Oh and note our new mirror!
Here is of course our table and chairs, buffet. This picture was taken from our bedroom.
Arthur Court, Mikasa (our everyday china), and crystal are on our buffet. It also holds our formal china inside.
One of the interesting things in this cabinet are 4 small crystal juice glasses. My great aunt, Ruth gave them to us. Russell and I got married September 8, 2007 and Ruth married her husband 73 years ago to the day! So as a wedding gift, she decided to give us those beautiful antiques. Another item is the book, Little Black Sambo. My Nanny used to read this to all her grandchildren with such enthusiasm! Just a special memory!
That's it! I hope ya'll have enjoyed looking! It's not much but it's special and that is what matters. I know that when we have a house, our kitchen will become my favorite room! I LOVE cooking!

I think the best part of your room is that it's filled with old family pieces! That is so important to our family too!

That is a great buffet!!!

I love that the curio has such special meaning to you, especially the little book you have that your Nanny read to you. So sweet. I wish I had a buffet. I think I would use one all the time!
