Kid approved. What more could you want!

I just linked this post to Kelly's Korner site where she has a McLinky for "Show us your life" and the theme is Fall Decorations. Thought I'd enter and I tried to paste her button but it's not working so........for great decor ideas, don't forget to go to http://www.kellyskorner.com/
Last week-end was our Canadian Thanksgiving (eh!) so for several weeks the theme at school has been on Thanksgiving. This was Dahlia's drawing of what she is thankful for. She had to read the poem and got a 9 out of 10. What blows my mind is how fast she has learned to read. From only a few tiny words in Sept. to full sentences a month later (and she missed almost 2 and half weeks in there....but...ahem....she was home-schooled....'k!)
Dahlia was dying to add gems to the pumpkins (in every color). I agreed to just pink on the little one atop the Daddy pumpkin.
With a little tea set I picked up in China.
I love my dining room. Sorry if that sounds braggy but I do. It's the one room that, for me, is almost perfect. (Except for the 2 bare walls on either side of the armoire which are crying out for 2 paintings, which will be done one of these
A few years ago I completely re-did our living room and dining room - the way I always wanted to. Went to one fabulous store and had everything made to order. If you're from here or ever come to Montreal, check out Maison Epipla on LaBelle Boul. in Laval. They have beautiful furnishings and great service.
And finally, two shots of the decor again (are you sick of it yet?) but with a method to my madness. The first below is with a flash, the second without - just with the chandelier lighting. To me the flash is over pink, the without flash turns it peach. Why can't I have a happy medium.
I may soon have an answer to this little conundrum. In a few weeks I'll be taking an on-line photography course with PFP (Pixel Fairy Photography) and I'm hoping to have all my lighting problems solved.
