And More Door Knobs

More of my love for 

Door Knobs!!!

I would love to tell you I made this.....but
 I got in some catalog over 15 years ago!

I have never parted with it, I love it too much.

I have hung it my my kitchen, mud room, bedroom and now
it's in my bathroom. 
I hang towels, yoga pants, t-shirts or whatever else I'm to lazy to put in the closet!

And this one I purchased at Paris Street!
A really cool antique outdoor market that comes around 
the first weekend of every month during the summer!

It's in my pantry, it's covering up the original fuse box that 
Mr. Electrician Man wanted way to much money to remove.
Gotta save $ somewhere!
And look you can't even tell!

Hanging Idea

I forgot this one yesterday.....

An old rake worked perfect to hang my beaters!

And why there is a clothes pin on one the the beaters
I don't know...?
Noticed it when I loaded the picture

Idea for hanging stuff!

I really like antique anything and everything!

I love antique kitchen utensils.

When people like me look at our stuff a hundred years 
from now I think they will be very disappointed.  
It's all plastic and has no character.

Hey, think of this, 
What if plastic is no longer made a hundred years from now....

Here's some of my stuff.....
A few of these were my Grandma's.

I wanted to hang them but wasn't quite sure how to do it.

So I went out to the barn and got some bailing wire 
and wrapped it around the handles.

What do you think?

Merry Merry - What a looong weekend!

Is everybody as tired as me!?
I had to come to work just to rest!

I don't think I have ever 
drove, prepared food, eaten, drove, talked, eaten, and drove some more
in my whole life! 

I'm tired! 


Just for fun......
I bring you The Nephew's 

Sister and brother!

Frieda really does not care for the Christmas
sweater Auntie Jane gave her

But Bubba, he's quite cozy in his!

Christmas In Golden CO

Every year there is a fight about the Santa sign.

Some people just need to take a nap and relax.

With snow, it's really pretty!

The mountains have gotten tons of snow.
But here in the foothills not so much.

Look, even Rudolph's nose lights up!
How can anybody complain about that?!

The Dollhouse!

This is my Dollhouse
My sister and I both had one when we were kids,
much smaller ones.

My sister gave me all her doll house furniture to add to mine!

So about 5 years ago I got this one, it was a kit.

I had to get a bigger house 
I had the furniture......right?!!

I thought it would be fun!

It has taken me 5 years to do the outside.

I thought it would be fun!

I changed the color of the house twice and had to redo the shingles!

I thought it would be fun!

After some soul searching I realized I
 I don't have the patience.

When I paint furniture I don't sand things down!
I just don't have time for that nonsense!
So it's a really good thing I like shabby, chippy stuff!

But with the Dollhouse 
I have to be patient.

As you can see the inside has furniture 
but needs wallpaper and paint.

Ohhh look at the stockings and the tiny wrapping paper.

And look at my really cute kitchen door!
( wow giant cricket in the background, photography at it's best )

And here's the kitchen, the unpainted, no floor kitchen.......

Tiny little rolls of T-pee........

But picture this room done, wallpapered and painted.

OK I love my dollhouse!!!!
I need to get busy and finish it!

And you'll see it in another 5 years!!!

Christmas House!

Finally got to decorate MY house!
Look -  I even wrapped presents!

See that little wooden sled. 

I found that walking along a path down to an old barn.
Seriously, I saw the side of it sticking out of the dirt and dug it up!
What a great find, huh!

Christmas pine cones

Christmas Kitchen

 These were Grandma's 

I love this stuff!
It smells so good!

I have my antique cookie cutters in the window.
They didn't show to well durning the day.

This stocking was my Dad's when he was little.

Christmas stove top

Cinnamon sticks, red berries and some green stuff
And there you have a cute Christmas stove!

Random Christmas cuteness!

And yes I decorated the pantry too!!

And it's DONE!!!
Well almost......tonight The Boyfriends house!
