Blog Party Time!!

Hi there! I'm glad you made it...make yourself comfortable and enjoy our May Etsy Blog Party...


If you attended our last party, you know that I love blue transferware dishes, but that's not my only obsession...Oh no!! I think I have more collections that I care to admit, but for my reader's sake I will not get into details...
Let's just say that original old, chippy, shabby, peeling paint makes my heart skip a beat...

or 2...

or 3.....


Yeap! I guess I have a lot of lead around me, but I don't chew on my shabby stuff, so I guess I'm safe!!!


I just love how these pieces add so much character to my cookie-cutter home.
I always say, they are just like people: a little beat up, by not means perfect, but willing to keep going when given a chance....



Before you leave don't forget to add your name to Mr. Linky at the end of this post to let everyone know that you are participating in our Party!
I can't wait to read about you and what makes your heart "skip a beat"!
Please add our button to your blog post and don't forget to send your friends over, because like any other party: the more, the merrier!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you had a blast and I'll be visiting you very soon..."see" you at your blog!

The blog party sounds like fun.
All of your photos here excite me. I love shabby chic and country. I had country in my house in CA but since moving to OR I have changed to a more elegant look. I am thinking of going shabby chic in the near future. Victorian things are what inspire me most.
Thanks for having this party. I am looking forward to it.
Hugs
Patti
