This is my small collection of my favorite turquoise pottery. The two bowls on the bottom shelf to the far right are Homer Laughlin Orange Tree bowls. Growing up, my mom always had a set of three that she used to make cookies or any type of baking. They were her grandmother's bowls, my great grandmother's. Well, after several years of scrapping with my sisters over who will get them (we all love them), I stumbled on these two at an antique store. I had never actually seen any for sale (other than on ebay), and snatched them up. Even though they aren't family items, they remind me of Granny. I store these in a white wooden hutch/shelf that my husband bought for my birthday. As you can see, it in need a new paint job, but it is solid wood and I absolutely love it.
These are some of my tablecloths. Thanks to my mother in law, Linda, I have developed an obsession with these.
This is a wall arrangement that is a work in progress. I put this in the breakfast nook. Black and white family photos are usually relegated to people's hallways, but I cant think of anything more pleasant to look at. Mine are all over the house, despite my Meme's hard and fast rule that family photos should not be hung or displayed in the living room of a house. Whoops.
