I wanted to create a quick post to show you some of my favorite things. These are pieces that I have displayed in my home and they are just a few of the many things that make my home feel like home:
This is my teacup collection. I love looking at them but hate to dust them!
These are desk drawers that were salvaged from a rickety un-savable piece. I simply hung them up, with the drawer pulls facing down so that I can use them as mini shelves.
I just love this! While out to dinner with my family at a local resturaunt, the resturaunt had a similar umbrella hanging from their wall. I'm not a believer in superstitions so it was a perfect piece for me to re-create and hang in the empty space of my walls (I have vaulted ceilings). After drawing an umbrella top onto plywood, I had my brother cut it out. I painted it black and distressed it to make it look old and worn. Then I attached an old cane (another collection I have going) to the middle of the umbrella. I then "spotted" or shall I say "supervised" my husband while he hung it up.
This is my press printing drawer that I have converted to an old spice container holder (oh and anything else old and rusty). I also have some antique sewing machine parts displayed in the nooks, finding spice containers to fit in these small nooks is sometimes a chore~
Thanks for stopping by!
