LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Home, Pumpkins and Angels

I haven't posted in over a week !! Oh My !! I Thought I would show a few pics of my home. This is a portion of Our bedroom. My old Duncan Phyfe Dresser ( One of two matching and my all time Favorite piece of furniture ) The great old chair that I bought for $3, and painted. My Window that I dragged out of a dumpster in L.A. That sweet little pillow that my friend Connie made. And peeking out from under the dresser, Mr. Jake. Who was a VERY naughty boy today. We wont elaborate , other than Mr. Whiz had me in tears. Bad Boy !!

This is my kitchen. A bit sterile, but I love it. Soft minty green walls and all white. The rack holds all of my tea towels that my Great Grandmother made. My great Aqua Blender that my Sweet husband bought me for Christmas last year. A few old tins, one from Holland and my favorite Birdie picture. I love my kitchen !!




Ok, am I lucky or what ?? A week or so ago, I was lucky enough to win Laurie's pumpkin tags on ebay !! Not only are here Bird pincushions probably the sweetest things I have ever seen, BUT she can paint too !! I just love these and she threw in a few extra. I just LOVE them !!! I will hang them from the chandelier on Thanksgiving. She also painted me this sweet snowman. Look how cute this is !! Thank You Laurie !!
Finally, a few ornaments for ebay. I love these, and had so much fun making them. I am really excited about Christmas this year, as I have so many people that I am making things for . Be Blessed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loved having a little visit at your house. Everything is adorable. Loved your mixer. i am a true lookey-loo. I think women are born with that instinct...to look at all of the other little nests out there. Yours looks cozy and filled with love.

Gee "Whiz" mom don't you know Puppy Man Jake can't help it if he has an accident once in a while?

Love you home, no close up of the pretty lamp on your dresser?

I find your kitchen to be very relaxing!

I would love to know where you found your towel holder. I have a lovely collection of tea towels and no way to display them. I've been on the lookout for a rack like yours for years.

You're blog is very pretty and it's been fun reading about your home - I'll be back!
