Around My House

I thought I'd show a few places around my home. This is a picture of a compact and necklace my mother had. I thought it looked so pretty together.
I found this tray at Thrift Town the other day. Brought it home and polished. Also, found the vase there as well, it's taller than what appears in the picture sorry. The jewelry also belonged to my mother. (vase in picture below)
This server I purchased on Ebay and decided to put it on my stair landing. Most of the pieces I found in either the Goodwill, Thrift Town or Antique shops. The anniversary clock was my mothers.
This is the table leading to my bedroom. It's also the table I had in a previous post, were I can't decide what to do with it. I decided to keep it as is for now, and put a runner on it. I just love setting up displays.

I purchased this some time ago. And couldn't figure out where to put it or what to do with it. It now has a place in my bathroom. You can tell I haven't decided on the color of tile I want on the bathroom floor. The stool I found at Goodwill for $2.99.

Pretty Tea !

Did you ever think that tea time would be even more delightful ?

Some of you may already know about flowering tea. I had not heard of it till my sister mentioned it in her last email to me. So, curious as I am about new things. I decided to look into getting my hands on some. So I went to Primula Tea's and ordered the tea with the glass pot. 
It is very tasty tea and it is pretty when it brew's. The flowers can be used at least 3 times in 24 hours before you discard them.

Decisions, Decisions.

It's tall and I believe it's meant to go behind a couch.
Some small detail on the table would make a great place for adding either pewter, gold or something I haven't thought of yet.
I found this at the Goodwill yesterday. I wasn't going to get it at first. It was $49.00. But after walking around for a few minutes I decided why not. Now I can't decide what to do with it. My first thought is to paint it white and antique it. It has water damage from the original owner. Once I do decide, I want to put it on my stair landing for additional space in displaying of things.

High Tea and Welcome Spring !


Hi and welcome. Have a seat and I will serve you the tea of your choice.
I'll serve your tea with finger sandwiches. All you have to do is relax and enjoy.
I like combining different plates and settings. I found the white lace chargers a few days ago and could not pass them up and use them for this. Enjoy !

How Sweet

I wish I was a little girl again. I would have loved to play with this.
I thought this was a great doll house and any little girl would be lucky to have this. It was in an antique shop in the Sacramento area. I wish I had room for it.

Neat Little House


I don't know what it's original use is. But I think I'll put flowers in it. It has a door on it so you can put something in it. I saw one on Ebay for $89.00. But I got mine for $25.00. It's Victorian in style with a little porch and lots of large windows. There was a smaller one next to it, but I couldn't pass this one up.

Thrift Shop Finds


I went to Thrift town yesterday just to see if they had anything. The first thing I saw was the plate. It's from Germany and the gold it 22K. Then I went a little further and saw the cup and saucer. The handle on the cup has been repaired, but it's still nice. I went to look at picture frames and saw this mirror, with white roses. It's craved from wood and it's really heavy. I started to leave to pay and came upon this bird feeder. I brought them all home and cleaned them up. You just never know what you'll find. The lamp needs repair. A new cord and plug. But my father taught me how to repair lamps and I can get old looking wiring on the internet. It's a pretty blue with gold accents and pretty roses.  The silver thing I'll shine up and use as a candy dish.

Purple Pretty

I just can't wait to plant these and watch them grow. I've been busy getting things together for my small flower garden that will be in the front of the house. My backyard needs cleaning up.

I had a big dog back there for several years and she just tore it up I had to put her down a few months back, and the yard needs a lot of attention. So until then the front yard will have to do. These are called "Penny Violet Beacon". Enjoy !
