Grand tour, The dining room.




I have many parties in this room...


This is the room on the left when you come in the house...







I store all the pretty dishes here...This is a French reproduction...



A Thomas Kincade picture...He is very famous in Utah. I like to study his pictures for landscape inspirations.


Same chandelier as the living room...


Here is my Summer look...


 

Sunflowers, Rooster and eggs and gingham table cloth...Very French....
Did you know.....The Rooster is The French Emblem like the Eagle is for the United States.
We love our chickens, no doubts....

What a beatiful room!!! I love the color on the walls. That painting is so beautiful - I love Thomas Kincade. I need to catch up on the tour! :-)

LOooooooOOve the rooster on the table!! You have a very beautiful home, Frenchy!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh Frenchy,
Your house should be on t.v.!! And now you get to start with decorating the new one--I can't wait for those pics too!

I had no idea that roosters were significant in France...that is so interesting (I wonder how many people here in the US know that!)

Oh, I wanted to tell you something else too...If you've got a piece of art you made that is inspirational--it could be something about joy,
angels, a landscape, whatever you think fits,
I'd be happy to feature it on my other blog
I Owe it All to Him.

Then, I'd write some theme-based inspirational story and I'd have a link to your blog...

If you've got something you'd like to share, just
let me know....
Hugs,
Cindy

I see roosters/chickens in a lot of French Country decorating but now I know why. Thanks for the lesson. Happy day.

Dear Frenchy,
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us here in blogland!

Nicely decorated Diningroom with the gorgeous rooster, eggs and checked table covering.

One of my favorite things is to tour homes and see how others have decorated them. Tis such funn!!!

The painter of lights artist Thomas Kincade is very popular every where I go in the midwest as well. Enjoy seeing his work.

God bless,

LOVE it! Our table is similar to yours, and love the red! I need to get a rooster ASAP! :) Thanks for sharing! Need that table cloth too...hehe...

andrea said...

Yay for amazing houses! Do you do tours? :-) I was excited to see that you live in Utah!

Also, I had no idea roosters were to France what eagles are to the USA. That's really good to know.

I'm referring my sister to this blog - she'd go crazy over it. :-)

Manuela@TPOH said...

That's a gorgeous room! I love the red walls with the white wainscotting! Thomas Kincade is great - I have a few of his plates. I think he also has a furniture line? Love the table with the rooster and the gingham cloth!

I love the wall color, especially with the white side-boards!! Of course, you know I love the rooster :) Thanks for visiting my blog!! :)

Shelly said...

Pretty Frenchy!
We have similar Colors!

Isn't there some saying in French about the Rooster being small, but tough? I think my sister told me about it when I was over there......

Thanks for sharing! Busy crafting, actually for a French themed party on Thursday for a coworker at Joyworks......Should be fun!!

Hugs and love,
Shell
