A Few Of My Favorite Things

Over the years I have collected many things. Some of them I bought, some of them I made, some were given to me as gifts and some I recently inherited from my grandma who passed away in April. these are a few of my favorite things.....

I got this dog for my birthday a few years ago from my Ma-maw (she's still alive). We were out shopping and I commented on how cute it was so she snuck around and bought it for my B-day. I was so exited!

This gold urn on pedistol is something I just inherited from my grandma(Nanny). It was in her dining room and I always liked it. This is the 4th plant I've had in it! This one has lasted the longest!


I made this acrylic water arrangement several months ago. I like it because it's realistic.


I love plates on the wall. This one is at the end of the hall.



I fell in love with this chandy at market. I even had a dream about it! I had to have it! We will probably take it with us when we move;)
I will post a few more of my favorite things later on this week, so be sure and stop back by!Thanks for commenting, I love getting to know all of you!!!!!

Kristen your blog is so lovely... And what a cute little dog I would have loved it also... It is true that the things that are gifts from especially our moms mean so much... Give your mama a big hug for me...

Hugs, Donna
