Daughter was an art major but just changed to nursing. She made this dragon in her ceramics class. So Hubby and DD put it in the display cabinet so he looks like a sea serpent attacking the little sail boat. I think they put too much blue garland in the cabinet!! But I am not going to rain on their parade.
You can see my sewing center and computer in the corner of the dining room. Sewing machine on the left, serger on the right and computer in the middle. The dining room does triple duty.
Also the wood paneling has been in this room since we moved in 7 1/2 years ago. We keep saying we are going to remove it but as you can see haven't done it yet.
