Sit A Spell

So many of you have said you would love to just sit in "our favorite" room so I have added a chair for that purpose. This room makes us think of earlier generations and their way of life before electronics took over.

On The Farm

Love the little buildings that make you feel like you have stepped back in time. The small one has furniture inside that looks so realistic. Of course Arnett's dolls look good in any setting, their faces are so precious.

Many Drawers

Fifteen drawer cabinet that can be hung on the wall contained bits of hardware years ago. Each drawer has an item attached that would have been in the drawer. It was made from old crates. The little handmade bear sitting beside is looking for a good home.

More drawers but these are not old of course but I love the mustard paint.

More drawers but again not old made by Primitiques in Pennsylvania. I love their grungy finishes.

A Few Shots

Love the natural light coming in the window and the old brick of the walls. The old blackened cake tin is holding new pantry jars and all is resting on a corner board newly made.

Just a bunch of oldies mixed in with candles and some handmade creations.

Baskets speak to me and say country all the way. There are so many places a basket can be tuckeed whether it is empty....

...or filled with something whimsey or practical. Old baskets have so many uses today as they did in the past.

Old Table

Old tables have such a warmth about them. This one has tapered legs and the top lifts off. The pegs that held it in place are long gone as is the drawer which now only has a front. This happens with antiques sometimes as they make their journey through life. The stories that could be told. aaahh!!

Gathering Together

This tin piece is a wash basin with a shelf/stand where perhaps the toiletries would rest. I thought it would be neat to add a grouping of old kitchen items and a candle to re purpose this interesting oldie.

This is another view but I will say, I am not liking the bowl of pears. Surely we can find something else but it does need some color.

Fresh Year !! Fresh Start !!

Remember the first day of school with all your new supplies? New pencils, notebooks not written in and a teacher/teachers to get use to. The promises of a school year makes me think of our New Year 2012. We have the chance of a fresh start.

This year I hope that I will have the time to visit more of my blog friends on their sites. There are so many places to visit and things to learn from each other. Each of you that have taken the time to leave comments mean so much to me and I want to be able to do the same.

Wishing each of you a year of fresh beginnings ,happiness, and good health.
