New Dining Room

This morning GM fixed the picture hooks on the wall, so we hung our pictures and the room is now complete. We are delighted with it.

We don't have a lot of pictures, just two originals and a limited edition print.

The first is by Lian Lilley Earley and is of Wisteria at Iford Manor. Lian is Warminster born but now lives in Devon, with her husband Mark, who has the somewhat flowery title of The Bard of Bath.


The second was painted by a neighbour of ours when we lived in Surrey, and is of a pub we used to frequent, the artist is Janet White.


Apologies for the odd angle, its the only one I could take without massive reflections on the glass.

The third is a limited edition print that we bought on our first visit to Bath in 2005


Now here are views of the room, one from each corner





As there are currently only three of us in residence, the table looks a bit overkill, but I look forward to many happy days when we have family and/or friends gathering and a table full of guests.

It looks fabulous Joy - you both have made a fantastic job of it all. I love water-colours and recognised the bath one straight away. It looks like you have a lovely hallway too - something I really miss.

Best wishes

It looks great Joy so bright, with a big table you can all spread out as much as you want and when you have visitors it comes into its own.

Happy dinning
