Ratting Out My Secret Love Affair…

Sorry, I just have to rat on myself today.  (holding head low with downcast eyes) I’ve had this secret affair going on since last fall. This spring I realized it had blossomed into an absolute love…

Love for this little red birdhouse…I keep photographing it, it’s sick, I admit…but wait till you see it!!! You may be having a little affair also!!!

image

image

I even used a photo of the bird house as my header photo last Christmas!!! It must be true Love!!!

image

image

Oh no, I’m beginning to see a pattern here…(turns head away) it’s an addiction…Is there a 12 step program for …birdhouse addiction??? I’m Becky and I have an addiction to birdhouse photography…

image

But it’s a fun addiction…

For more addicted ladies go to Tootsies…we need your help!!!

Best Friends Forever…

I’ve been collecting some white glass lately. I know, everyone in blogland has been doing the same thing. I’ve always liked white dishes so it fit into the scheme of things around here.  I have a few pieces of real Milk Glass but most is just the white glass…I’m not too snobby…If I like something, I don’t really care if it is authentic or not.

My bff Jackie and her hubby are always giving me things and recently they gave me these beautiful little white milk glass salt and pepper shakers…they’re tiny…but they are gorgeous!!!

image

image

See how cute they are!!! They are so cute with all of my thrifted finds…(dishes from TJM, glasses from Walmart, placemats from Kohls and flatware is mine)…

image Thrifted napkin rings and linen napkins…

imageThe white stacked bowls came from a local antique mall and that cute little white and red doily came from my favorite thrift shop. The rattan huggies on my glasses came from a yard sale last year (spray painted white).

image I found this little milk glass jelly server with a clear glass spoon in Louisville, Ky. recently.

image I love my milkglass cups and saucers that came from an outdoor fleamarket…

image This is the little creamer that matches…

image Thanks….Jackie and Lou…for being you!!!

Linda @ Coastal Charms has lots of thrifty finds today!!!

Susan at Between Naps on The Porch is hosting Tablescape Thursday!!!
