Happy New Year!

Wow, it's been about 5 months since I last posted here.  I had a few new home finds and changes to share though.

Just this weekend I found this little china cabinet, already painted and stained in an antique style finish.  I changed out the knobs to these from Anthropologie (on sale $2.99 each)

I gave away my big book shelf to a friend but I love this little piece and can change out the pieces depending on what I want to display.

We bought this old printers tray a couple of months ago to display some little collections of my grandmother's thimbles and other little pieces.

Also I painted the french doors to my office.  They were stained a dark color, but they were a bit too dark with the new wall paint, I like them a lot better now.

my art / family picture wall is a mix-match of things, but I like every little thing up there

my other china cabinet with some of my blue fiestaware and other pieces

and this dresser moved downstairs and is good storage for more china pieces, board games and linens

another "baby ben" clock

and another recent find, the "persimmon" fiesta ware cups from GOODWILL!   This persimmon, turquoise and gray are my favorite colors of fiesta ware, but I have some yellow, green and other colors too, I really love it all.

and I bought these new lamp shades from Pottery barn with a Christmas gift card, I love them too.
