If the kitchen is the heart of the home, then the dining room must be the soul. This is where the oldest and most sacred of human traditions occur; the breaking of bread with family and friends. This was the first room redone after purchasing the four-acre wood. As Susan said, “It has good bones,” generous windows, proportions, and a large bay window. We added a ceiling medallion, an antique chandelier, fresh paint, chair rail molding, grass-cloth, and new old furniture.
Then comes “The most wonderful time of the Year,” and it’s transformed once again.
To all of our friends and family spread across this wonderful country at this special season, while we may not be able to gather physically in this dining room, we can break bread separately, but yet together in the knowledge that the King of Kings was born and dwells with us all.
Tim, Susan and Mimsy
