Dang! I was on such a roll before Christmas... and now look it is the middle of March. DANG!
As always plenty going on, some good, some sad, some life...And while I could go into each with some long long long story....well.
On a weird note last night I walked into my laundry room. You know the one that I have wanted to fix to perfection so it could go on pinterest...(hey I did finally finish my scrapbook paper wall) (now I just have this LITTLE spot by the dryer that hasn't been painted because the newer dryer is lower than the old dryer....and you guessed it, that paint bucket is EMPTY)
Anyway, I kinda stubbed my toe on my ROCK that is my door stop....which after a few choice words made me smile cause I bet not everyone has a rock for a door stop. At least probably not a painted ladybug with one eye.
I have the other eye....somewhere. My grandma Ann had painted this for my Auntie Ber, which I gladly inherited! It makes me smile.
And I also have this
Anna's friend Jessie made it. I think they call it a puff cheetah. (cross between a puffer fish and a cheetah???) So cute it HAS to sit by my desk.
Yep it grows like this all the time. Or at least for the past 20 years. Sometimes there is just dirt....but then one little leaf pops out... my mom had given it to an old friend, and somehow I ended up with it....shows my growing skills...but CAN't for the life of me throw it.! So it just sits in my kitchen window where it has sat for the last MANY years.
My family had a rock fetish...rocks to some, Indian scrapers to my dad!
a finely carved box...sits on my bedside table
do you have vintage decorated match boxes?
donald duck piggy bank?
Pottery made by a couple of girls I taught in school (way back in the day. One holds my rings, one holds all the stuff that comes out of the washing machine.) (which is a whole other blog post)
a medicine cabinet that came out of our old house in the valley. (the house where everything was painted. (you should see Lynda's yellow and pink piano))This holds all my little oddities.
Strange things, that wouldn't make it my home if they weren't there. (and you guessed it, these are just a few...(you should see what I have in my drawer))
In the world of perfect pinterest homes, what's your oddities? The things that really no one else understands why you have them, but makes your heart happy. Take a walk around your home... can you beat me?
