these are a few...

... of my favorite things.

~ My green tool box that I recently relocated from outdoors to my kitchen table ~
Not sure what I'm going to fill it with. Any ideas?

~ My plate rack that I found for a dollar last weekend ~
It's suppose to hold saucer-size plates... but I prefer the seed packets I bought in England.

~ My collection of coat buttons and vintage sewing gadgets ~
I love my twine/scissor holder from The Willows in Phoenix.

~ A bowl full of texture, color and design ~

~ Fire King mugs ~

~ The number 3 ~
3 boys & 3 girls in my family. I gave birth to 3 kids. I just like the #3.

~ Vintage croquet balls and rake heads ~
I keep finding rake heads for next to nothing, with plans to repurpose into these.
Tell me about a few of your favorite things!

Love the tool box. Evidently you have access to some really great baskets. I would find a couple that would fit inside the tool box, the add a few vintage pieces of silverware in one and then napkins in the other. Maybe you can find some tall salt and pepper shakers (mismatched might be cute). I would also find a really torn up block print table cloth and cut a piece out the size of a bandana and then tight a knot around the handle. So cool that you have the tool box. It's a great piece of memorabilia!

Linda- my grandmother had a rocking chair like yours. Hers has green fabric on it. It still has all of her old thread and pins and buttons. Including a single puzzle pieve she hid from my grandfather when she was mad at him.. in the little drawer. It was the only thing of hers I desperately wanted... my aunt had to get it back from someone to give it to me... do glad she did.

Love the old tool box. I would put old bottles in it with flowers. You really have nice collections. I especially like your sewing items. ~~Sherry~~

Wow you have some great stuff, really love all your vintage sewing accessories. Definitely flowers for the tool box, maybe freesias cut short in glass jars for spring!
