More Little Improvements

On Sunday we cleaned the house from top to bottom and made a few little improvements. We've now got a chalkboard in the kitchen, a slightly--no, very--tacky tall lamp on the sugar box in the living room, and a fancy, frilly brass and marble plant stand in the sun room (with a half-dead fern sitting on it). I'm using the chalkboard to keep track of the cats' behavior. June Baxter has already lost points for whining. And Francie is in trouble for writing "Rob Rulz!" on the board without permission and signing with a paw print.

New lamp in the living room

New furniture arrangement. We now have a table on either side of the couch.

Little mahogany shelf and my collection of biscuit jars

A terrible picture of the new plant stand. I'll have to try again.

I wanted to show off my wedding china. It's Wedgwood, Queen's Plain.


  1. Ooh, I really love that mahogany shelf! The biscuit jars look so perfect there. That room is one of my favorites, so full of pretty things.
    Oh, and who is on "Whisker City" on the sun porch picture?

  2. Thanks! I want you guys to come over! . . . The person on Whisker City is Josie. The chubby person running is Elroy (hee hee).
