A change is as good as a holiday...isn't it?

Hello and welcome to Natasha in Oz!

I am sure many of my dear American friends are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. We will be having a little Thanksgiving dinner at our house on Thursday and I am trying to find an easy recipe for Pecan pie so I will be visiting many of you very soon. If you have any good recipes please let me know-I would be SO VERY grateful!!! I am even going to try and make the pastry from scratch!

Well, another metamorphosis has taken place at my house so I would like to share some pictures with you for today's Met Monday post.

So, we finally got our bar-stools for the breakfast bar but our dining area is only small so the stools were bumping into the dining chairs and the room was feeling a bit claustrophobic. Here is a picture of the space before the stools.

Our antique Chinese sideboard looks lovely against that wall but I am just not sure.....

Here is another view looking into our lounge area from the dining area (before we got our new window treatments).....

And another view; this was from my first ever Tablescape!

Here comes the metamorphosis...I thought that maybe the space could be better utilized if I moved the Chinese sideboard and moved the dining table and chairs around. Just a few little changes.....


What do you think? Who was the wise person who said that a change is as good as a holiday?

I really like this new arrangement and the sideboard is the perfect height for the wall I placed it against.

Now, to decorate the sideboard.....

My youngest sister and her husband just gave us this gorgeous Royal Albert Santa Cookie Jar! Isn't it cute!

My parents gave me this cake stand for my birthday-it is filled with spiced muffins and minced fruit pies.

Here is one final look at the newly decorated sideboard in its new home!

I think I will leave it like this for now...well until I feel like another change....What do you think of our re-arranged dining/kitchen area? 

Thanks so much for visiting today and for spending time with me in my little corner of the world Down Under!

Best wishes,
Natasha In Oz
