~A Few of my Favourite Things~

*this link is joining Show and Tell at the Romantic Home

I am busy working on a few projects around the house  - a laundry room spruce up, painting a desk and my sewing drawer organizer. In the meantime.....
I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourite things that I just adore. Some are heirlooms, items I bought or just things I made. I find that it is these personal favourites that make a house a home. Enjoy...

Pillows I made....

Dishes my Czech grandmothers gave to me over the years....

A painting I bought in Prague....

A old frame my mom bought in Prague that I spray painted silver and tarnished with some black paint.....

Dishes from Prague that were my great-great Aunt's....

A clear glass lamp I found at Homesense (I wanted one from Crate and Barrel but this was $100 cheaper!)
Hope you all have a great Wednesday. I can't wait to see what will be posted at the The Shabby Chic Cottage Transformation Thursday!
