Things around the house...

Good Monday Morning my friends!
I hope you enjoyed the weekend.
I went to Jacksonville to help my daughter get settled in her new apartment.
Everytime I go to Jacksonville they have the best weather!
For those of you who know Jacksonville(I don't) she lives in Avondale/Riverside.  What a beautiful area!
I will do a post real soon.  The old homes take my breath away and the yards are amazing!!
I thought I would show you some of my collections around the house.
I love vintage wind up clocks.  My newest is the pink one in the front, I just love it.

I like the mix of silver and Chrystal candelabras.  Only white or off white candles please.

I love cloches and urns.

Scales!!  With cloches!!
And rusty stuff.

Oh and flower frogs!  Why do they call them frogs?

Old crackly white ironstone of course.

I love the faces of rusty crusty scales!

Especially when you can hardly read them!!

It's hard for me to part with them.

My long time friend gave me this one.  Don't you love it when someone gets you?
Yesterday in Orlando was cloudy, rainy and cool all day, I loved it!
Today is bright, sunny with low humidity.  I love that too!
You all have a happy Monday!

Seems to me like I need to make a trip to your house for some photo-ops! Great stuff Sue. I'll have to photograph the antique wind up clock made of onyx my son Matt got me years ago. Wait a minute--not wind up but still very cool.

You are a true collector Sue - and my guess is... there´s more! ;)

Very nice collections. I like the mix of candelabras and how you display them.

I held two small pin flower frogs in my hands today and didn´t know what to do with them, so I put them back on the shelf. Now I know I should´ve sent them to you :) I saw many varieties in a big box. I might have to go back and check them out - and learn how to use them. LOL!

Today was a glorius day full of sunshine and 10C. Still cool air but no wind.

Have a great day!

I liked the weather yesterday too - felt like I was somewhere else. Of course I love all your treasures and why frogs? I have no idea. Can't wait to hear about the new apartment in J-ville. Ann

Great collections, I wish I had not sold my off white scale!! The silver and crystal are one of my favorite collections, they look so good together!!

Have a great day,
