Favorite Things

I have lots of favorite things throughout my house that is why I have a 4 bedroom house and a studio packed to the ceiling. I really am trying to decide what to destash.  I am going to start by asking friends if they want certain dishes I am willing to part with.  However not many takers so far. So when it gets cooler I'll have a 3 day sale? I have been doing this procedure over 2 years .I remove stuff then buy more LOL
I still love and covet the old 1800's pictures and Staffordshire dogs also my aesthetic platter in the background. It is huge and perfect for that era
                                                       


This is my favorite splatterware graniteware coffee pot. I seen  it at  an estate auction back in the 1980's. I bought it in Glasgow Missouri. I wanted everything in that auction.


A sweet little serving dish hand painted marked nippon the gold is almost perfect all the way around adorned with tiny rosebuds


My favorite pin cushion my stuffed pug dog I added his lace necklace and charm and stuck lots ladies hat pins in him

Someone just gave this teapot me she bought it in Hermann Missouri at a city wide sale. Handmade by someone there. It was me either take it or she was going to put it in her trash. 

I am a rescue person LOL 

  Hope all is well out there. I think I'm getting use to this over 90 degree heat wave we are in. Stay cool 




LInky parties I like to visit

  5. Dear Janice:
    We are struggling but pressing forward and learning what activities to do in the mornings and evenings and where to hang out in the afternoon! Love all your treasures. We have been taking little day trips here and there on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. We are enjoying a simple life. As soon as our furniture comes I am having a tea. We don't have living room furniture yet and this week they told us it is delayed because the fabric was out of stock but when it comes - you will be invited to a tea! I love all your treasures. I love finding things and checking out new places!

  8. Janice, I love your treasures. I love the little Nippon bowl with the pretty pink and gold. What do you feel the spoon is for? And, who could think of trashing the blue teapot??? I love blue. Thank you for sharing your sweet treasures. Nancy Carr

  13. I wonder what was served from that lovely dish. The dog looks kind of sad. :) Some times we know we need to sort and give away...but then we love something and it's hard to part with it. Good luck with your sale...now that could help declutter and make some money. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
