More Decorating Favorites

Among the many things that I love to collect, transferware dishes seem to always draw me in. I love all colors -- blue, red, brown. They always make me smile. Continuing our theme from yesterday, here are some more of your decorating favorites:

Lynn, A vintage picture of her mother, displayed along with the feather from her mother's hat.

Also from Lynn, a lovely English tureen

Karen, Karen's sister, Lynne, made her this lovely lap quilt and matching pillow, displayed here with some other matching treasures

Gail, A wonderful collection of restaurant creamers. Each piece is unique, and some have restaurant names marked on them.

Jeannelle, a paperweight made from an unusual rock found on her farm. Like Jeannelle, I usually pick up things on my walks, but I don't think I've ever carted home anything as big and heavy!

Tara, a piano surrounded by family pictures and special mementos. Tara says, "every vignette we make in our homes (is special because) we know the stories in our hearts."

Patty, a pretty embroidered pillow, which seems to have inspired little Zoe!

Please stop by again tomorow for our final group of lovely decorating details!
