Happy Holidays!

Xmas 2010 (Evening Shot)
Finally did some unpacking and got our tiny aluminum tree decorated. We plan to have a much bigger tree next year but the living room is an absolute wreck right now because we’re in the middle of painting it & patching holes, etc. I wanted to make one spot nice for Xmas Eve so I managed to make room in our dining area. In a week or two the dining area will be painted (it’s currently the same ugly gray/blue color that the previous owners left it) and I hope we can afford to get a rug soon.

The vintage Danish modern dining set was a recent local find. We were told that it was made in the ’60s by Dyrlund and it came with 2 leaves so we can expand it if we need to. Best of all? The whole set (4 chairs & table) only cost us $150! The clock on the wall was my Xmas gift to my husband this year and the painting was done in the ’60s by a Latvian artist named Jurjans who was a friend of the family.

Happy Holidays!!!

  1. Thanks a lot, Jacque! My husband inherited a lot of amazing art that had been in his family for years after his father passed away and I'm glad we have a place to display it now. I love that painting a lot!

  2. Very nice room! The tree is great! We had this same clock when I was growing up. I have looked for one since with no luck!

  3. Thanks, Christy! We’ve painted since this photo was shot & I hope to share some new pics of the dinning area soon. The clock is great and I’m glad I bought it when I did. It seems like the prices for vintage starburst clocks have gotten more & more expensive. Good luck finding one!
