DINING ROOM DECOR...a little cheer

Hi darling readers.  I am in decorating mode.  I am working on my dining room because I am tired of looking at blank walls.  I gathered a few things from other areas in the house and from bins in the garage and went to work.  Just know that there was nothing on this wall before I began and everything is either trash picked (window) or thrifted.  I bought the sparkly letters for a dollar each 2 years ago. 
 
All thrifted...

I don't know why these photos are so dark...I will be dangerous when I learn how to use my camera.  Let's just pretend I was going for ambiance.
 
My sweet Emma Jane, my sister's little one.  She's gonna be 4 soon.

I like how it turned out considering there was nothing in here but a table and chairs with a cabinet in the corner on the other side.  I will show that and my table as soon as they are finished.  Have a great rest of the day, sorry for my absence, I have been nursing a sick cat since Thanksgiving when I rushed him to the emergency vet.  He is doing much better.  I prayed for that little guy and held him like a baby.  I was a good mama...you would be proud.  dawn xo  Thanks for dropping by, it makes my day!!

Oh no I hope your little guy is feeling much better- what a scare! LOVE your dining room decor, the dream lettering and the deer are such nice touches. I think in your previous life you were an interior designer- you have such an eye!
