Americana Kitchen and Dining Room

Hello! Hope you're having a nice week so far.  I thought I would put up the rest of the pictures I took of my house.  I am really happy with the way my stovetop looks.  In the dining room I just added my goose, some ribbon and rearranged some of my things.  That's one thing I recommend doing on a regular basis.  Change can be refreshing and good.

For summer I brought out my gernaniums, prim strawberries, fly screen then added some patriotic ticking the farmstand candle is from last year.  I put a smaller candle inside it and it smells so yummy!  It's this one from Bath and Body works, they're having a sale right not so I have stocked up!  I like the summer melon, lemon and the orange sapphire the best.

Hoosier Cabinet
I added some red, white, blue berries star garland on top.  I also put an americana shade on my light.  Then I brought out my stars, eagle, Uncle Sam cookie cutters.

This is the top of my old pie safe.  I added the flicker candle, put in some more of the ticking then placed the aged copy of the Declaration next to it.

 Thanks so much for stopping by I really appreciate all the comments that you leave me.  I know it's not always possible to comment on everyone's blog you visit.  It really makes my day and puts a smile on my face.  I'll be back soon with some recipes.  Have a great day!
