Looking Back at Some Favorites.....

Hope all of you are having a wonderful and safe New Years Day!  I thought I'd take a look back at some of my favorite collections of this past year!

I do love my dogs and have quite a few, these live in my family room

These guys guard the kitchen

This is part of my ironstone pitcher collection

Some of my ironstone platters

Can you ever have enough luggage?
(well, I can't anyway)!

Clocks and small books

Riding hats and books with outdoor titles
(2 of my favorite collections)

You won't find me up the river without a paddle!

Vintage kitchen collectibles

Kitchen utensils with green handles
(my very first collection)

Vintage croquet sets

Vintage tablecloths, state ones are my favorites

That's a few of the things I love to collect, better stop before you think I'm a hoarder!

Till next time......

Partying at:

Wishing you all the best 2012

What great collections! The dogs are especially fun. It's so easy to get hooked on collecting, isn't it?

Now from one junker to another I would never ever call you a hoarder. But I do refer to this as a disease and I do think you have it! :D You and I have such similar taste love it all!
P.S. We will be seeing each other for sure, maybe at the show in Hendersonville.

I edited the code so you shouldn't have a problem, but I did link up your collections post for you to make sure it would work (it did).

Jann Olson said...

Hi, love your collections! You collect of few of my favs also. I buy vintage red handled utinsels. Have a few green also. Love your old garden books, crochet set, and oh I just love them all. I too collect so much. My hubby once said, "Jann, you're becoming a hoarder." I just replied back, "We don't have walkways through our home yet." lol!
Enjoy those fun things!

Revi said...
