Lots of blue and white pottery.
Under the table is an antique tool chest.
  It has a tool drawer inside. Great storage. I store my needlepoint stuff in there because I just may start to needlepoint again. The antique box holds a few 45's as mementos. A collection of antique canes are in the umbrella stand.
We added the leaded glass inserts to the doors a few years ago.
The little lamps are Waterford. The entry table was a $75 garage sale find.
I took a painting class at the local middle school a few years ago. This oil painting is my first one.
I envy artists with natural talent. It would be wonderful to be able to paint for pleasure. (note to self-paint something besides furniture and bathrooms)
Pink tulips in a blue and white pot.
Like on the entry table. The rest of the entry is in my previous post with the doggies (keep scrolling down and click on - older posts).
