This is from May, 2001. Note the "Splat Mat" under Clown's high chair. This was a futile attempt at keeping the carpet relatively safe and clean.
Then this is from December 2004. The only changes were -
1. An attempt at curtains. The blinds are still under the curtains.
2. As well as slowly getting new chairs. We got two of those green plushy chairs at a time, then waited a few months and bought a few more. At this point, we still needed two more. Also, the table that you can't see under the party table cloth was given to us by our neighbour. It is a lovely dark wood, 100 year old beauty. It needs to be refinished and we have not done that yet. The table in the 2001 photo is now down in the Rec Room and has been christened "The Craft Table" or sometimes "The schoolroom table".
These were all taken last night. It is difficult having windows built into corners as they are in this house. It really limits a person' choices on window treatments. The walls are actually a deep "cranberry" and the drapes are a dark shimmery forest green. The true shades do not come across in the photos. It is prettier in person, trust me:)
