Still More Loving

I have had so much fun sharing all your favorite decorating details! Very often, the things that really make our hearts sing have a connection to a loved one. I began collecting milk glass when I inherited a few pieces from my mother. Now they are so beautiful to me, and they hold a special place in my heart. Here is the final group of things that tug at your heartstrings:

Cheri, and a doll-sized table and chairs, made for Cheri's daughter by her father-in-law

Abbie, a beautiful pink crib quilt and bedding, handmade by Abbie for her daughter

Beverly, a wonderful rose painting. After an exhaustive search for just the right piece of art, Beverly found this painting on ebay, and won it for $0.73!

Rhondi, an absolutely beautiful collection of blue glass

Lauren, her twin's childhood shoes, "silvered." How's that for tugging at your heartstrings? :)

Kathy, a terrific rooster shelf, filled with cute kitchen accessories. There is just something about roosters that speaks to lots of us. Did you catch Beverly's Rooster Parade this week? If not, follow her link above, and scroll down a bit -- great fun!

Susan, a beautiful beach-themed shelf. Sweet memories of family days spent near the water are a wonderful way to create a decorating scheme that really tugs at the heartstrings. :)

Thank you so much to everyone who has participated! I have had a wonderful time, and I hope you have, too. :)
