Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The Magical City of Scott . . . .



Which decorated the breakfast room
since Thanksgiving Weekend


Got put back in it's bins
And back in the garage

The breakfast room now looks like


Well, a breakfast room!
Table (the oval English walnut one)_
And chairs
(although I'm trading them out tomorrow)


On tabletop
a new natural woven runner I bought yesterday at Dillard's New Year's Day sale
And a blue and white bowl of paperwhites
That are just beginning to bloom!
(Oftentimes, my timing is not as good and it's the middle of January
before any of the paperwhites are even thinking of blooming!)


The plants are back in their accustomed places
(although I did lose three)
And it was good to have lunch and dinner there today!

Since Thanksgiving, we've had to take all of our meals in the dining room
For Scott City filled the room!

Your breakfast room is very pretty, nice outside view too! I like your paperwhites on the table, I need to get some of those, it is always so nice when they finally bloom.
Happy New Year to you!

Nice for a change to have the houses set up and such a beauty to look at. But, now back to more normal everyday living. Both are very nice. Enjoy your paperwhites!

Martha,
Great minds. . .
I adore that you're swapping out the breakfast room chairs!
I've been doing a bit of 'Musical Chairs' on my side of the Prairie, as well, dear friend!!!
I would love to find #4 French dining chairs in pristine condition!!! Perhaps, when I'm not on the hunt, I'll come across them!!!
I'll be watching for a post of your newest endeavors with the chairs!!!
Fondly,
Pat

I think the timing of your paperwhites is acually spot on!....once all the colour of Christmas has been put away it's nice to have the fresh white of the flowers as a foil for the polished wood. I look forward to seeing the rearrangments of chair!

I'll bet Lucy was enchanted by the little houses! I need to pot up some more paperwhites today. I bought a couple of those blue and white bowls the Christmas before last after I saw them at Linderhof. It looks really clean and fresh on your breakfast room table.
