These are a few of my favorite (old) things

A few days ago Tongue in Cheek asked her readers what sort of antiques they own or collect. Blackeyedsue also blogged about pretty old things that she loves. I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of a few beautiful things I've acquired over the years.

This is a great idea for quilt remnants - cut them into heart shapes or sew them into miniature pillows:

A Stickley rocker :

some old stamp presses:

antique bobbins used as candle holders:

unused violin scraps and photos of my musical ancestry:

roses painted on an old ceiling tile:

an old family quilt:

a tea cup purchased from a second hand store:

old sap buckets make me feel springy!

what used to be my antique room has since turned into a play room (and the furniture is safe in storage until my kiddos grow up):

Photo shoot II

This time my kiddos... we have cabin fever bad today! What better way to deal than snap some impromptu photos?

Photo shoot

Yesterday I had the opportunity to take pictures of beautiful baby Sam. Sure made me wish I could focus on photography for a while! I love it!

You gotta love Spring!

The colors, the skirts, the bunnies, everything!

My mother sent me this bunny cut-out years ago. I finally got around to painting in last year or the year before. Can't remember. Anyway, thought it was too cutesy for my taste. But once I get a nice little arrangment of potted flowers around, it's quite charming.

(excuse the Thomas that somehow made it into my picture... I believe it was stowed here out of reach of my 4 yo for some good reason)

crazy for polka dots

I can't get enough of polka dots. No other pattern can vie for my attention. :)

For Sasha's room...
