With no formal entry (or dining room) in the house, we needed a spot to act as a landing pad when you walked through the front door. The spot where we placed my antique industrial sewing table is straight ahead of the front door, and the table fits this space well. The lamp is vintage, the mason jars are Henry's marble jars (he earns marbles for doing certain jobs), the small white ceramic berry basket is by roost and random holds little things we don't want to lose, the snake plant is in a pot from TJ Maxx and there is a white ceramic feather dish to hold our keys. Under the table is a crocheted ottoman, which I made. I usually keep my purse on top of the ottoman, although I mainly keep it there to keep anyone from accidentally kicking the carbon monoxide monitor plugged into the wall behind it.
On the shelf below are a set of antique silhouettes, a Lollia candle, our Beta fish and my dad's medal from Vietnam.
Stay tuned for more peeks of our home coming up in the next few weeks... Henry's room is up next!
