This is the other Dresden plate. The amberware was my mother-in-law's and I picked it out when we were going through her stuff before she went in a nursing home. I use the juice glasses for votive candle holders.
This pretty much tells you everything you need to know about what I like to collect and the colors I like best. The nest on top of the tin is real, but the bird is not. The popcorn was a gift from cousin Nancy. The green china girl was hers and I nabbed it at her yard sale. The handled jar on top of the popcorn is sweet cherry jelly from Colorado, which is where we're from. The other stuff is just stuff I bought. Oh , except for the blueish pitcher which I found in the dirt at an old house I stopped to poke around in. You can just barely make it out, but there's a cookie cutter in front of the Hershey's tin on the left, actually a dog bone cutter. It's an airedale, and I won it in an online contest by an airedale rescue group that I was part of, for the best email written by a dog. It's a constant reminder to me of my beautiful Molly.
These are some old books I picked up at a used stuff store and will probably be showing you another time (they're not just cook books). My whole house is based on the colors of books! The tin is one of my absolute favorites because of the color and the bird. Don't know how old it is.
Cook books, newish tin of little boy. Small tins were from my m-i-l. The ivy has been in this pot for about 20 years! The cat in the photo is Marakesch, Kesch for short. She came from a shelter, and lived to be 20 years old.
Thanks for stopping by to see my stuff! It's pretty much the same as everybody else's stuff, but it's mine! Some would consider it clutter, but I consider it treasures. My oldest grandson, Garrett age 6, already is putting his dibs on certain things for when I die! (That could be because I'm always saying "this will be your's and Conner's when I die.")
