Kitchen Window

Thought I'd share what I look at as I do the dishes.  I'm always doing dishes!

It's Fun To Rearrange Now and Then

 Instead of buying more stuff in a house that already is full, I like to rearrange and move things around, also as part of me cleaning everything, too.  Here's a look at my cottagey living room:

 That candleabra was at a garage sale...I think it's so pretty!

 I recently painted that flower table the cream color.  It used to be black.  And yes that other thing is an old hamper!

 I have a piano player in my living room.  How's about that for luxury?

All of my goodies on my Egyptian baker's rack.  Have a great week!

Just What I Wanted!

 I wanted a cabinet to keep my perfume bottles and various bath lotions and potions...then one day, she appeared in a local resale shop! Perfect size and nice and vintage!

 I loaded her up with goodies....

 Vintage prints, purses, doilies and perfumes...

 Some of my old clocks...

 She is next to my bathtub.

I'm so  happy I found her!  I think she likes her new home.
