Finally, a shot of the inside of the house. Here is the dining room that never was. It was formerly Keith's workshop/storage room before getting a new hardwood floor and French doors. Now it acts as Syd's violin room. However, she also uses the room to bounce her little bouncy balls in.


Sydney made this fabulous trio in her Thursday night art class at the Silvermine Art Guild studio.
