My living room and dining room

Here are some pictures of my dining room. When I can find some before images I will post them. The walking wheel I bought at the aution last fall for only 55dollars. It was a steal. I have had the press back chairs for a few years now. And last christmas I found the 7ft. bench at an antique store. I love it and one day I imagine all my grandchildren sitting on it for a big family dinner. I still have to get a new table this one is 5ft. and I need a 8ft one so the bench can be up to the table.
This is the living room side of the the room. I purchased a Ikea slipcover in white that I was sure would fit my couch,but alas when I tried to put it on a few months later(long after the return date) the main part would not fit. I did replace the cushions but I am not sure that it looks okay. Its a 50/50 split. I have left it on for now , but we will see.

Maybe I will get lucky at Ikea one day and they will have the couch in the clearance part. I saw one there before so you never know.

This is what my couch looked like before and It has all but been destroyed by the sun. So in reality it can't look any worse than this. What do you think? Frances.

Canada Day at bit late

Here is the house done up for Canada Day I know that was a while ago but it has been too hot to post on the blog. The buntings I found at tbs stores. The one in Keswick only had 1 so I called all over and drove 130km round trip to get the other one. I would of bought all they had but that was indeed all they had. And they only cost 1.25 now what is up with that. Here is hoping they carry them again next year because I will get all I can.
Next week we are going to do a few fixups on the outside so I will post a new picture soon. The window boxes have to be hung and little odds and ends.
I painted the front door and I am hoping to make a new number sign so people can find the house.take care for now , frances.
