More Collections..........

So I said I would post some more collections, some of the things I've collected over the years.   For those of you who know me, I'm sort of cheap and I never pay a lot for any of this stuff. .   To me, it's much more interesting to put items together over time to decorate your home than going to a furniture store and just buying matchey matchey items.  That's soooo boring to me.  So here's some more:

Floral bouquet paintings that sort of have that cottage/shabby chic look.
These hang on one wall in our bedroom.

A small collection of manni's. Some of my handmade necklaces
hang on them.

Black and white photos, most all of them relatives from the past.  My mom does matting and framing. She will blow some of our family photos up, do the matting and framing and give a couple to each of her girls each year for Christmas.  These gifts are very cherished.

My globe collection.  Most all of them from the local thrifts.  None of them no more than $5 each.

Turquoise green, blue and other tones of green vintage pottery. I'm attracted to anything green and blue.

So these are some of my collections. I hope you enjoyed looking and maybe got some ideas.  Check back next week and I'll show you some more.


  1. Your collections are great....Love the manni's and old photographs!
