As we speak . . . . .

Dear Hubby is installing the tile on the countertop, the same tile that is on the floor.

As you can see, I was so excited when I finished painting the walls that I went ahead and rehung the mirrors.  Baseboard is in and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

On a recent trip to Annapolis, Maryland (I vended at a quilt show there), Dear Hubby and I had to stop at a few antique places.  I added to my enamel pot collection.  Up to 15 now!

We also stopped by Prim and Proper in Hope Mills, North Carolina.  What a cute store!!  Not far off the interstate (I-95) so if you travel up and down the east coast, it is worth the detour.

I bought this really neat wire tree.  I'm not sure how I am going to decorate it . . . . with some wool ornaments for sure but there is different graduated spaces between each tier of "limbs".  I'll have to think on that one for a little while.  Any suggestions?

I also found these jingle bells on a stem and the electric lamp.   The firkin is a 2 year old purchase I don't think I have shared before but that's for another post.  When I put this all together, I'll show you how it came out.

This little book candle caught my eye.  It's sitting on the desk part of an old school desk that lives in our living room.  The candle is waiting for a prim book to be made by moi.

I also bought a punched tin tissue paper cover but I'll wait until the bathroom is finished until I show that  . . . . . . (please be soon, please be soon, please be soon).

Blessings, Cathi

Oh - you inspire me! I was all set to just settle in and deal with painting and the like at a future time. Already I notice that I am looking around saying 'I could paint this room in just a couple of hours' Now that I see how wonderful everything is coming together, I can see that that is going to happen much sooner rather than later . . . keep those inspiring pictures coming *S*

Love all your goodies! I bought one of those trees to display my jewelry from - we must have good taste!

Good morning Cathi,
I love your new goodies...and the wire tree....I have two of them and I use the old tin mini cookie/candy molds - they look awesome!
I imagine tiny wool ornies would be adorable too.

Love the enamel pots - nice size.

Your bathroom re-do is coming along great!

Great finds. I would love to have that tree to hang my bird ornaments on.

LOVE your new bathroom! Now you get to enjoy all that hard work that went into it!

Like I really need another collection lol, but I just really love those enamel pitchers and have been thinking about collecting them. I always see them when I'm antiquing. Gosh, I wouldn't know where to put 15 of them! But they are beautiful when used as vases with the flowers changed out for the different seasons. I think I'm gonna have to buy one the next time I'm antiquing and see if I get addicted to them, hehe.

I have been seeing those wire trees the past couple of years in blogland and would love to own one. I have never came across one but we don't have prim shops in this state. Some little wool ornaments would be darling on it!

Love the rest of your prims too! We have so much of the same taste, I just love coming here to your blog to see all your neat goodies! =]
