Please, come in!

Welcome to my foyer!   This is the view of the foyer from our dining room.



I have been collecting anniversary plates for a long time.  I have almost every  year..some are mine... some were purchased. 



Sweet little cup and saucer picture that I got at a little shop in NY a couple of years ago! 

This old door has been with me a long time.  I was using it as my pantry door at our last house.  When we got ready to move, my husband said "this old thing won't fit any opening at the new house"  But, I had already measured and knew that  it would fit the coat closet in the entryway!  Look at that fatina!!!!

This is the view of the foyer from the kitchen.

I bought this old cupboard in  Pa. a couple of years ago.  Have some of my cloches on the top.

Sorry about the glare, but  I had to show you the bottom!  It has some of my crystal collection on the floor.  I decorate floor to ceiling!!! LOL   This is what you see as you come down the hall from the bedrooms.

Some of my favorite plates.

This is the wall to the left as you come in. 

This angel lamp is right by the chandy.

And here is her sister!

This light fixture came out of an old rental that we owned for about 20 years.

I put this cute little lid over the light switches, I thought they were an eyesore, so I covered them up!!  I will be joining the following parties this week
