Some of my favorite things


I decided that I would show a few things at
random every so often amongst the scrapbook
pages and other creative things. Actually this
large wreath is one I did several years ago. I
used to make these and sell them. It has such a
cottage garden feeling. This must be timeless, because
I have had it hanging on my wall now since 1995 and I still get so many compliments on it.


I love mercury glass, and would like to
collect this stuff.


I actually really do like to collect these
type of dishes, with scenes on them.
I am not sure what this
is called, but it might be called toile.
If anyone knows please let me know. I
have many of these plates with scenes
on them. And the clock is a toile design that says
Paris on it. My favorite is french country decor.

*Hey here is an update. The dishes that I love to collect
are called transferware. Thanks to Diane Knotts. She didn't even know she helped me out on that one.

Hey here is an idea. Place a cast iron door mat in the middle
of your table for a great centerpiece mat. These also make the best trivets for hot casseroles.
