I was a little nostalgic the other day and pulled out an old dress that I used to wear when I was younger. It doesn't fit me anymore, but I still love it. I even had matching blue shoes for it! Perhaps someday I will have a grandchild who will want to wear it.........ohhhhhh what a great tea party we will have!!
I love Alaskan native baskets and beadwork. Some of these have a wonderful cottage appeal to them, especially if you find them in soft colors like these old Eskimo slippers
One of my favorite collections is a really simple one. Heart shaped rocks...perfect for valentine's day. I find these heart shaped rocks on my walks. Some of the white pieces are coral. I found those when I was in Maui about ten years ago. I have a pesky stellar jay who loves to pick out the white coral rocks and throw them out of the blue bowl. I guess he has his own idea of decorating and doesn't mind putting his beak into it!!!!!
Since I was being nostalgic I had to include this photo of some of my feathered friends. The left black and white chicken is "Cruella". she would follow me like a puppy. She loved to be held. She was one of my best friends with a heart of gold!! Bantam chickens are such wonderful pets besides being good little egg layers!
