This is a great looking room with a little bit of everything. First of all, it’s comfortable looking. The pair of chairs look quite comfortable, and a little table in front of them is large enough for a small floral display and a tray with beverages. It has interesting artwork on the walls from many different time periods - from 19th-century to modern -nicely framed and arranged. There is antique furniture from the 19th century which serves a decorative and practical purpose, especially the mahogany glass door book case, which displays, protects and lights up a variety of leather bound and other books inside.
The small marble fireplace mantle top displays a cute, small bamboo stand which holds a white porcelain vase with a dried arrangement. Fresh flowers look nice in the center of the fireplace mantle, and off to the right a good looking blue and white oriental vase lamp with a black shade provides evening light. The floor is covered with a lovely antique oriental rug, and there is even an interesting fabric wall hanging which is displayed behind the mahogany bookcase. The top of the bookcase also showcases two bronze statues.There is a large turtle shell somewhat hidden in the fireplace opening. There is abundant natural light coming in from the left large window, and you can barely see that there is also a window seat there as well. This room is very pleasant, and has many interesting items to enjoy. I think this would be a great little room to sit in and talk or have a cup of tea or relax with a good book.

I’m super excited, my “new” dining table and chairs are here! This antique set suits the age and size of the room so much better than the reproduction set I had before. I love the carved details on the chairs and the fact that there’s twelve of them! No more gathering chairs from around the house! Next up, reupholster and new drapes to match the living room! Oh and maybe sconces...and a rug...uh oh. Slippery slope. #diningroom#oldhouse#oldhouselove#antique#antiques#sheridan#shieldback#galveston#greekrevival

Oil drums and garbage litter the Antarctic landscape. The penguins find it difficult to avoid oil slicks that cover the waters. When winter comes, a fierce storm transforms the land. There are no signs of people anymore. But have they really gone, or just hidden under snow?
