January seems to bring on the "need for change" here at Mourning Dove Cottage and every year around this time I find myself cleaning, organizing, and redecorating the house.
One simple change I made was add a tablecloth to the breakfast nook which now makes it feel more cozy.
The bookcase that was once in the dining room was moved to the living room and is now by the front window with a lamp that I like to keep turned on low all day long. A pretty antique lamp should be enjoyed, don't you think, and I like the warm glow it brings to the room. The bookcase fits perfectly under the window and is filled with books along side the breakfront that is also filled with books. So many books.....
The sideboard server now replaces the bookcase in the dining room corner.
I brought an old pine trunk from the bedroom and put it behind the sofa where the sideboard once was. I'm not sure this will stay here, but for now that's where it is.
More "tweaking" to do and the decorating continues.
Have a great weekend everyone!
