Just A Peek

So many of my sweet blog friends
have asked me to share more pictures
of my home with them.
Today
I so hope you enjoy
this
 tiny peek into my world !

chalkboard

This chalkboard is in my entryway.
It once greeted customers to my antique shop, The Buttercup.

vintage collectibles


vintage collectibles

No, it's not Christmas yet!

I have a large Shabby Chic cabinet in my entryway filled with
vintage 40's and 50's holiday collectibles.

I love to search for them at the antique show
in Round Top, Texas! 

african violets

I grow African Violets and have ever since I was first married.

potpourri

This potpourri is made from lavender
and
the pink roses from my summer garden.
It smells heavenly!

teacup chandelier

My son helped me to rewire an old chandelier
with
 blue willow teacups and crystals.

It hangs over my dining room table.

my grandmother's chair

I watch the sun come up
and
read my Bible from this chair every morning.
The chair was my grandmother's
and
a friend, Miss Billie, helped me to slipcover it.

Jesus

This picture of Jesus is very old.
It hung in my grandmother's house
by
her back door for as long as I can remember.
Now it hangs by mine.

clocks

I adore clocks
and
 my home is  always filled with the magical music of their chimes.

pillows

I make pillows from vintage bridal fabric and lace.

Can you ever get too many pillows?

I can't!!!!

I would love a tiny peek of your world.

Smiles,

Dottie

  8. What a beautiful home...I love that the old picture of Jesus is near your back door as if He is watching over you (as He indeed is!). I see some spode in your dish pile, don't I? And so nice to sit in your grandma's chair AND see the sun come up AND have your time with God! Have a good weekend!
