Favorite Things

Hi All,
Do you ever walk through your home, and as you pass by an item or photo, get a warm, fuzzy feeling?  I do, all the time.  We have lived in the same house for many years, since 1985, to be exact.  It is a part of me, and always will be.  
I thought I might do a series of Favorite Things, once in a while.  Hope you enjoy!
An olden lamp, bought at an estate sale of a dear lady I knew...

The old newel post, built for the house in 1939.  I wonder how many times my hands have touched it?

Me and my Dad, Grant Park, Chicago 1980.  A treasure, the picture and him.

I love transferware.  Pieces I have picked up, here and there, perched on a vintage Early American shelf.

Mid Summer Stroll

Hi All,
Life gets busy, doesn't it?  I have made a trip to Vermont to help move my daughter and her family.  I think they will really like it there.  I will be heading east tho, ALOT, as they took my grandson with them! lol  I mowed this afternoon, so took some pic of the yard.  Enjoy!







Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

Backyard Stroll

Hi All,
How are all of you doing?  It's been awhile since my last post.  Busy, busy!  Let's take a walk around the back yard.  Hope you enjoy...

Beautiful Day!

Hi All,
It is such a beautiful day in Illinois.  By the weekend the temps will hit 80!  My sweet "adopted sister" Susan, over at Ash Tree Cottage, inspired me this morning to post a little something for you all.  Life has gotten very busy, but here is a little spring post for you!  Please go over and visit my sweet Susan.  Her blog is delightful, just like her!

I added a little letter basket this year

The plants are coming alive

Hope you are all having a great day!

Hello!

Hi All,
Life has been very busy for me and to be honest, I really hadn't found much inspiration around the Cape house, lately.  Spring seems to be here, at least for a couple of days, yay!
Bunnies on the coffee table

The over sized cup and saucer are the same pattern of the china that Carole Lombard had for Clark Gable at their Encino ranch.  He loved his coffee out of these big cups!

Hope you all have a blessed Easter!

Home, Sweet, Florida Home

Hi All,
We are spending a few weeks in our Florida home.  I am always on the lookout for more things to cozy up our home.
My galley kitchen.  I'm on the hunt for more things for the top of the cabinets!

We had to replace the built in Oven/Microwave
Breakfast nook arrangement
I love my olden Jenn Air

Might be time to change up the chalkboard, lol

Love the art deco style sink in the downstairs bath.  New sink and light fixtures were added.
Towel cabinet in the downstairs bath nook, along with custom shutters

Another Christmas Gathering

Hi All,
I think this is the last of the Holiday parties.  I hosted my tennis girls, yesterday.  We were missing two of them, as they were under the weather.  We missed them :(  We all had a great time, tho.
I always serve the hors d' oeuvres in the den

Table is set for lunch

Love these girls!

I wish you all a happy and healthy 2015!
