Some Of My Favorite Things


Here's a little peek at some of the things I love to look at in my home.

Isn't this little button head doll a cutie...I stood in line waiting for the artist to finish her and then snatched her up! The little berry-trimmed candlelight keeps her little corner lit up at night.


I love this little stitched verse...it's a good reminder! The little berry topiary is actually a candle that I found for a quarter at a thrift store and there's one of my fat birds sitting on a fabric covered box!


I love old kitchen utensils and cookie cutters and Purinton pottery...especially the apple and pear pattern. I also love one another!


More cookie cutters, a sweet little raggedy gal and one of my Susan Branch books share a spot in my dining room hutch with more Purinton, a yummy smelling candle, a tiny copper teapot and a rusty mini sad iron.

I just like stuff........

Oh Marie, I like every little corner. Love how your sprinkle encouraging words throughout. It really adds to the beauty by giving us a message as well, doesn't it?

I still haven't stitched up any words yet. I am so trying to complete my projects for my family Christmas for next week. We'll be celebrating with my Mom & Dad early. But right after that, I'll probably fill my home with encouraging words all stitched up prim style. I already have my frames and fabric just waiting for me.

Smiles,
Lea
