Entry Welcome!

Peeking thru the front door.....
 Into the living room.
The doggies are glad you're here!
Inside entry
Entry table in past years.
Now remembering my Mother. That's her favorite scarf and she's wearing it in the picture.
A Christmas moose and Chocolate Moose needlepoint pillow sit on an antique child's school desk.
The antique pie safe is on the opposite wall.
This is where I store my table linens, click HERE to see. 
 An old wooden sleigh filled with Poinsettias and cuttings from a tree.
Looking over the half-wall into the dining room. Snowball candles on a wrought iron stand.
The other side has a butler's table.
Doggies looking at the tree.
Leaving so soon?

Lucky settles in for ...a long winter's nap.
