Dining Room in New-to-Us House - side view - Dogs Don't Eat Pizza

It’s time. We are unpacked. We have hung stuff on the walls. We have moved in. And now it’s time for the #newtoushouse home tour to begin! I thought I’d introduce you to our home room-by-room, rather than throw a slew of pictures at you all at once. I want to tell the story of […]

Turn pumpkins into planters for mums or other fall plants. And while you’re there, click around Suzy’s site – she’s got great ideas […]

13 Gorgeous Dining Room Ideas


As you know, I’ve had, ahem, issues with designing my dining room. First it looked like this, then like this, then like this, and then . . . we moved.
