Another Day of The Charm House Decorates...

I don't know what it is about the age I am.... But, I just don't care about rules that one should go by to decorate. I have entirely thrown all rules and being realistic about decorating out the window. If I want to take my kitchen table out because I love the view and want a two seater couch there... Well, I am just going to do it. If I am just tired of that painting that I begged to buy and want to take it down to put up a piece of my altered art.... I'm going to do it. Just because a room says that it is a breakfast room, I say differently. Oh, how I love this rebellious age!

Now, Girls I have to say for some women this rebellious stage will not be as easy for you as it is for me. I have one of the most easiest going husbands in the world and he loves everything I do. I have a thought of moving something, he is there to move it. He loves our eclectic world that we live in, often finding his boyhood toys used as decorations and bringing back wonderful childhood memories for him.

Today I want to show how I folded down the kitchen table, made it a desk and moved in our "love seat" that holds both of us "perfectly" and "snuggly". This window overlooks the lake and outside of it hangs our bird and squirrel feeders. We love to sit here and watch God at HIS best! For us, it is the most relaxing thing to do during the day.
I know you are asking.... So, where do you eat? We still have the breakfast bar, but to be honest.... Most nights you will find us in front of the TV and fireplace eating a bowl of soup!

How I love Rebelling!

yep, who said a dining room had to be a dining room...:)

that's what we did in our kitchen. took out the table and set up a sitting area in front of the fireplace. the table is now in the "middle room" that is actually a large hallway that runs through the house, like an old dogtrot I think.

i love our age by the way!! :)

your place looks great!
