My favorite corners...today

Anna's bistro set. This is the best place in town for tea.


Addison's bear collection. The blue one's name is, Bluey. The white one's name is Lineny. No one is ever allowed to play with them. No. One!


Jack's reading pillow. After his bath, he runs in here dripping wet. He likes to lay down, suck his fingers while still bundled in his towel, so I let him do just that.

I love milk glass. I really don't buy it much anymore. I have run out of places to put it. I don't think I paid more than a dollar for any of these pieces. Some of them were only ten cents!






About a year ago, I was antiquing with my best friend. We both spotted this old soup tureen cover and grabbed for it at the same time. She snagged it first, but then sent in to me in the mail. I love it, Maybe I will send it back to her in a year or two. Maybe.

Oh how I love a wonderful pillow, it would be a nice thing for our son, but knowing our dog she would think it is hers. I loved those bears! Thank for sharing your house with us.

i love milkglass too! i think the idea about sending the tureen cover back is so perfect- with all sorts of pieces...then you create a natural rotation of objects you love in your house and hers...and will appreciate them and enjoy them even more!

The bears and their names really got me. I love that no one is allowed to touch them. So sweet! So many beautiful corners. Thanks for sharing...

Love the reading pillow. My sister made each of my kids huge floor pillows (one is a dog the other a cat) and they love to lay on them after their bath ;).
