Happy Friday~!
   I hope everyone is surviving the latest heat wave ok.. I try to do my chores before 10, if possible. This morning I got the yard mowed, walkways - patio- and front porch swept and my garden watered by 10:20:)  In many ways this was a good thing and in others, well.. Suffice it to say it gave me time after my shower to look through the online Pottery Barn catalog.. Yes, I've looked many times before but this particular time the dining rooms caught my eye.  I think it's becuase all the photos either have lots of light bright windows or outdoor settings.
  In my dining area there are no windows or brightness, BUT, as you may have noticed in a prior post, I CAN build a window lol..   Right now I have an oak pedestal table there.. Sometimes I use the 2 french style arm chairs that are painted black and other time I used the 4 white chairs I've had forever, yet they are still in style and their seat covers are easy to change out..
  I'm posting all 9 photos I saved and I thought it would be fun if folks looked through and choose their Favorite and said WHY it was their favorite.. Now - Play Right and just choose 1 .. I know that makes it tougher but as in life we cant have it all and we must make a decision:) so...
  Which Setting, speaks to you and why??
 I finally had to choose  A7 as my very favorite.. I'd leave off the coke crate but the rest of it really appeals to me.  it just says homey and cozy to me which translate to , Welcoming.. Add to that the extra storage below, which I need badly.. I love them all but remember, I had to Decide, something thats not easy for me:)
 I'm always interested to hear your thoughts about things so I'm looking forward to reading which 1 you choose and would love to see why too...

  I have numbered the photos in the bottom left corner....

I hope you and yours have a fun, safe weekend.
