Treasures around my house

I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and those of you who have chosen to follow my blog.  Being a brand new blogger you do not know how much it means to me.  You have all truly warmed my heart.

The following pictures are of things I collect, things I picked up at antique malls or yard sales, just things that make my home, my home.

I love buttons and lace.  In fact buttons and lace was one of my choices for  a blog name, but when I was setting up my blog that name was already taken.

This little creamer I found in an antique mall and instantly fell in love with it. I love its shape and of course I love that it is white.  The old clothes pins I have in it were my grandmothers and I remember using them to hang up laundry when I spent time in the summer with her.

I also found this mirror in an antique mall.  If you haven't figured it out yet, I love antiquing.  I have yet to find a place for this little mirror but don't worry, I'll find a the perfect spot for it.

This is an arrangement I have in my bedroom.

Here is a close up of the post card I have clipped inside one of the above frames.  I love the handwriting on it and the one cent stamp.

I couldn't do this post without showing you my thrifty find of the day.  I found this lamp shade at a second hand store for four dollars.  It is a pleated linen fabric.  Score!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
