Today I would like to show you my top 5 favorite things around my home. I wish I would have taken a photography course because my pictures do not do my Favorite Things justice!
1. My hutch.
I use to NOT be a fan of this hutch but it matched the table. You know the table….farm table with white legs and wood top….they were EVERY where. EVERYbody had one. Anyway, I decided to embrace this hutch instead of throwing it out. First, I changed what I had inside the hutch. I LOVE the white on white.
I also changed the knobs which totally changed the look of the hutch.
2. Petite Lamp
I bought this lamp at the dollar store many years ago. I bought some foo foo trim at Wal-mart and hot glued it to the shade. This lamp has made it’s way around my house. Currently it’s in my master bathroom. I hope to find a new home for it soon.
3. Love Birds
I bought this cute little pair at the Goodwill for $2 a few months ago. My intentions were to paint them white like so many I’ve seen flying about the internet. But the longer they sat there the more I loved them just the way they are. They have found a permanent nest on my bookshelf.
4. Picture Perfect
Before I ever had children I envisioned a great big picture above my fireplace mantel. In that picture were 3 kids holding hands walking away (all you could see was the back of them). So all these years later I had to have that vision captured. We could never get a picture of them walking away BUT we got one of them walking toward the camera. Which is way better because you can see their precious faces.
5. It’s all in the name
My friend’s grandmother made her a crocheted name picture when she got married. I made her promise that day to have her grandmother make me one if I ever got married. Fast forward many years later and Surprise! my sweet friend and grandmother delivered. My house doesn’t exactly match the picture but this name picture will ALWAYS have a special place in my house. It is definitely one of my FAVORITE pieces in my house and the piece that inspired this post.
