Part 2 of Let's take a tour of my Daughter's home

Hello Sweet Friends,

So are you enjoying March??
is it Windy at your house??

I can say yes, to both of those questions.
It is about 75 or so out right now,  but
with the wind it is delightful out on the
porch..........a perfect day, course, not
sure I would say the same if I was out
in the sun!!  lol

Today's post is part 2 of my daughter's 
home..... The Dining Room.

This is how it looks from the outside.
This was turned into a dining room
from a screened in porch, and I think
they did a marvelous job.

So come on in and see for yourself.
This is the back entrance.....well, you 
know what they say.....back door 
friends are always the best....lol

Absolutely love all the windows......
so charming and cottage like.

As much as I love the windows
one of my thoughts was that is
gonna be fun, when it comes time
to wash all those puppies....but not
so.....because the window pane 
dividers are inbetween 2 panes
of glass, so it is like washing one
big window pane. I could only tell
because I was looking at her herbs
she had growing on the window sill
and actually touched the window.
Who ever came up with that idea
was a genius.........lol

This bull head is just a fun find that
my Son-in-love liked so she put it
right where they come in the door
and figured they could hang their
keys there.  Not sure if they ever
do it tho...........lol
but it was a good idea.........

what a great ceiling idea.........between
 the windows, the shiplap and the ceiling
 it really is such a lovely room. 
Definitely my fav room, which is hard
to choose cause I like so many things
about their home.

This pic looks a wee bit washed out
probably cause of all the light, but
wanted you to see her cute lil bench.
  She wants to get a cushion or some-
thing for her bench now that she has
 her chairs, but just trying to decide 
still. They have another Sisal rug
 in this room,  just like the one in
 their living room.

(If you would like to see the
Living room/ Part 1)

Just love how the light streams in...
This is in the late afternoon.

She had this console table from their 
other home, so they decided to try it
 in the dining room, since they had it
 in the entry way to begin with in this
 house, but then found the other bench
 and cabinet to go in the entry way.

  It looks quite nice there, but she
 didn't want anything to distract from
the view or her pretty table and chairs
 so she decided on this cute, yet under-
stated table top decor. Just 3 mason jars
 with silverware in them, and she then
 hung the cute lil  tin stars on them.
I thought this was a good decision.

Since we were leaving the day after 
Valentine's Day to go to our daughters,
and hubby usually gets me flowers.....
I told him just to wait and when we 
got to Dee's we would get some for 
both of us, and enjoy them while there.
So I got the pink Tulips as she likes
 Tulips as well, then we got some others
 that she picked for a certain vase she has
 in her kitchen, which you will see in
 Part 3 that will be coming up next week.

You can see we used the Tulips in between
 the candlesticks and I draped her throw 
over the bench to see how it would look
 with some texture on it.......

All her chairs are the parson chairs with
white slipcovers which is really pretty
elegant and easy to clean. I really love
 the skirted chairs. 

Night Time View with Shades pulled.
I took this so you could see their shades. 
They are great....they have that accordion
 fold look to them, and you just pull them 
down and they go right back up and only
 show about 2-3 inches at the most. 
Perfect....especially for this room so that
they still has that wonderful view
 and light coming in.

Thanks for joining me to day,  hope you
enjoyed the 2nd tour............

Have a Delightful day.

Love Hugs, and 
March Blessings.

  1. Hi Nellie, I'm sorry I haven't been around much, or at all-just life has gotten in the way if you know what I mean. Your daughter's dining room is beautiful! I'm going back through your posts so I can see the rest of her house. Yes, all four of my grandparents came from Ireland-so proud of my heritage. Hope you've been well!

  2. Wow! I like all the light that come into the dining room from all the windows. I have the double pane windows too. I need to get Dolly's nose prints off as well!

    A little white egret would look cute between the bull's horns, ha!
    Waiting to see next week's pictures! Love you all, Susan

  3. Hi Noreen,
    It is so nice to hear from you hon. and yes, I do know what you mean about life.....
    Life is what is happening when we are making our plans......lol
    I am gonna have to do the same with some of your posts to catch up as well. Have missed
    you from the blogosphere.
    Don't know if my paternal Grandfather or his family actually came from Ireland or not, but
    my maiden name is definitely Irish...lol

    Well, hope all is well with you, and thanks for coming by and for your sweet comments
    as always hon,

    Love and Blessings,

  4. Hi Susan,
    yea, I love the room is filled with all that light, simply beautiful......

    I was not quite sure what you meant about the egret....so asked Jimmy if it made any sense
    to him, and he told me about the birds getting on the bulls.......guess I am not too up on

    Well, have a good day tomorrow.
    Love, Nellie

  5. Nellie, I just looked at both parts of the home tour and your daughter's house is so farmhouse perfect! I do love the cottage touches and how bright/white it is. :)

  6. Hi Stacey
    Thanks so much for your visit and your lovely comments.
    I am sure she will be tickled when she reads them.

    Hope you have a Special evening and weekend,

  7. Such a lovely dining room! Perfectly white! The Tulips are a beautiful touch! Thanks for sharing! #HomeMatters Party

  8. Hi Jeannee,

    hosting at Home Matters....it is always a nice a fun party.
    Hope you have a lovely week,
    Blessings, Nellie

  9. Really enjoyed the tour of your daughter's home. Love that farm table.

  10. Thanks Sugar,
    So glad you enjoyed it....thanks for dropping by and for your sweet comments.

    You have a great day,

  11. What a lovely home. I love how bright the house is. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party.

  12. Hi Vanessa,
    Thanks so much for coming by and for your encouraging comments. Also thanks for hosting
    dishing it and digging it linky party, as it is a fun party.
    Hope you have a lovely rest of the week,

  13. It looks beautiful. In our very first house we used the sun room/sun porch as our dining room also. It was heated and we were able to have a nice size table as well. Your daughter's room brought back many memories for me! Thanks for linking up with Foodie Friends Friday!

  14. Thanks so much Lois,
    Always a treat to hear from you hon. Isn't it neat how some many times when others post it
    triggers a memory for us as well. Sometimes it might be that they have a certain art object
    or glasses or pitcher or whatever that you yourself have or used to have or something that was given to you by somebody else. Sometimes it is a small world and it is another thing that makes blogging fun.

    Hope this finds you doing well sweetie,
    Love and Blessings,

  15. Beautiful Nellie! Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
