A Charming Christmas Dining Room

Merry Christmas! Welcome to A Charming Christmas Dining Room. The theme for my Christmas decor sprung from the knitted stars I’ve been making, and of course a red and white color theme. Usually I do individual post, the mantel, buffet etc, but with Christmas so close they are being shared as rooms. The one thing I never want the Charmer… Read More

I don’t care, if you want it, get it!

It’s 3:45 p.m, Mr. Charmer is saying “I don’t care, if you want it, get it!  This is Mr. C’s way of not making a decision.  He wants me to  make the decision!  Mr. C uses this tactic in case it doesn’t work out…then it’s not his fault. Does you husband do this too? Like I was saying, it’s 3:45,… Read More

Where’s The Legs!

Last November I scored a beautiful buffet at a local Salvation Army. Paid $100.00 for a vintage 1930’s solid wood buffet with gorgeous detail.   Even though she was nestled in a crowded room full of furniture I liked the “feel” of her and LOVED her legs (I’m a leg girl). We brought her home and moved her right into… Read More
