HI! was wondering where I could purchase those dinning chairs? Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Finding a suitably scaled dining room table was another one of their design dilemmas. They went through three rectangular tables before Steve's mother finally recommended what turned out to be the solution: an oval-shaped table. The Saarinen table's marble surface is custom made, and the table is paired with custom-upholstered Dune chairs by ABC Carpet & Home.Amelia made the banner hanging behind the table out of wrapping paper for Thanksgiving dinner one year, and the family decided to keep it on the wall. "It's how we want to live," says Amelia.
1. Create a banner you can use year after year. Use what you have in the house to create a gratitude banner to decorate your dining room on Thanksgiving. Here are a few ways to do it, depending on the materials you have:Cut and sew letters from fabric scraps onto fabric tape.Cut out letters from wallpaper samples or oilcloth, and sew them onto grosgrain ribbon.Glue letters cut from pretty gift wrap onto cardstock for strength, punch holes in the tops and tie them onto ribbon or twine.Cut out pages from an old book and use stencils to paint a letter onto each page, then staple the pages onto twine.

9. Make a cheerful banner. If Christmas morning leaves you with a pile of random gift wrap scraps, a banner could be a great way to make use of all the colors and sizes.
What can you let go of? I haven't done Christmas cards since 2005 after more than 10 years of sending them. One year it just became too much work and it was a relief to decide to set them aside. I still love to receive Christmas cards from others, but it's one less task on my pre-holiday list. My sister and I have a tradition of decorating cut-out cookies with the kids, and the only reason we do it is because she wanted to. Up until she moved to my town, it was one of the activities I decided to avoid, knowing full well my kids would love it. Menus are another thing to reassess. I know the Thanksgiving meal is especially sacrosanct, but why? For a couple years our family grilled steak and made a big salad and dessert — I can't even remember what — because no one felt like messing with the turkey, and steak sounded good. Thanksgiving was truly about spending time together rather than preparing a massive meal. I have a dear friend who complains every year about the food she has to make or her brother will pitch a fit, and every year I suggest he could make it himself.Take a look at for whom you buy presents. My husband and I stopped exchanging presents with his siblings as soon as the first grandchildren came. I was the only one on my side who was married with children, and gifts were a larger part of our family culture, so we continued. But it was a lot for me to cover my nieces and nephews, our own children and my siblings. One year, with plenty of warning, I announced Paul and I needed to bow out of the exchange.I don't recommend buying your own babies gifts. Grandparents and aunts and uncles can do what they want, but you, the parent, can set that aside.
Ms. Fix-It Home Solutions added this to Stick to Your Resolutions: Help From a Pro Organizer
Find the sweet spot. Inventory what’s right in your life. Whatever your circumstances, being grateful for what you have will put your resolutions in perspective. Remind yourself that purging the old will make room for something new, literally and figuratively.If creating order in one part of your life will help you feel empowered or peaceful amidst chaos in other parts of your life, then put your focus there.Use decluttering or purging as a meditation. Each item (or habit) is a part of your story. Thank the item for its story, close that chapter and move on.

Create a banner you can use year after year. Use what you have in the house to create a gratitude banner to decorate your dining room on Thanksgiving. Here are a few ways to do it, depending on the materials you have: Cut and sew letters from fabric scraps onto fabric tape. Cut out letters from wallpaper samples or oilcloth, and sew them onto grosgrain ribbon. Glue letters cut from pretty gift wrap onto cardstock for strength, punch holes in the tops and tie them onto ribbon or twine. Cut out pages from an old book and use stencils to paint a letter onto each page, then staple the pages onto twine.
