I don't even know why I like this old, black wicker chair....but, I do. That little pillow in front says "You can buy big busoms but a sense of humor is a gift from God." Ha, haaa..I love that~

I LOVE MACKENZIE-CHILDS !!!!!!!! This 3 qt. tea kettle is the only nice piece that I own.

I WANT MORE; like, I want a collection but it's waaaay too expensive. It's all so pretty to me, tho.

I LOVE BOXES...especially round boxes. The red one on the bottom is a vintage hat box and the rest of them are newer boxes.

This very old, cast iron clock belonged to my mother. She got it from her Aunt so many years ago. It sits on my red hutch in my dining room and it chimes on the hour and half hour. It's a wind up clock and I am just amazed that the original key is still around. I guard it with my life.....

This crystal lamp with prisms is in my guest bedroom and I check each guest's suitcase when they leave....just in case they loved this little sparkly lamp as much as I do !!!!!!!! :)

Love the pics of your pretty things. You make me want to be a collecter, which i am not. However, we do have a kitchen full of roosters and chickens of all colors and kinds. Hey, that does make me a collector! Happy blogging,

Hi, my friend. You have so many beautiful things. That tea kettle is the perfect piece in your kitchen and all your other treasures have "you" written all over them. The pillow is really cute.

I love your favorite things post...I got my daughter that very same little pillow for her 16th birthday, when she was so sure she'd never get "a bust". Now she has both...a sense of humor and a chest...

I love all your "stuff" and it would all!!! go great in my house too. So, if you ever want to get rid of any of it, ship to Michigan!!! ROFL Especially the MC teapot, which I am way to cheap to buy. But I am so glad you have it, dear friend. Christy 427

bj, I just love the boxes. The colours go together so well. The lamp is just perfect. I have been looking at something similar for our guest bedroom as well.

I emailed you with my address, so hopefully it got to you.

BJ I just love the lamp with the prisms. I had one when I was a teenager at home very much like it, wished I had it now.
It is late so I will wish you a great tomorrow!
