Accidental collection

Have you ever realized you've began a collection by accident? I have done this twice. First it was owls. One day, I took a step back and realized they're everywhere. Kitchen, bedroom & living room.  Owls of all kinds.... Pictures, vases, salt n peppers, cookie jar, figurines.... I have it all.

Anyway, this time I accidentally started a milk glass collection. I guess it all began when we started collecting vases for the wedding. I've always loved milk glass but since I already have a pretty huge Pyrex collection I've never picked up any at the thrifts.  My mom gave me her small Fenton vase when she moved so that kept me happy.  Somehow, that all changed and now this is happening in my kitchen. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE IT.... but that's the problem!! We live in a small apartment, remember?  Now I just have to be extremely selective from the very beginning. I made the mistake of buying every piece of Pyrex I found when I first began collecting and well, you know how that turned out. So here's my milk glass collection. Fenton Hobnail at its finest with a touch of West Moreland glass. I'm trying to make sure the pieces I collect are useful and/or interesting {hello, swan} So far so good! Wish me luck .... I'll need it!

A touch of spring

Today is the first day in a while that the weather is acceptable. Although tomorrow it's going to get cold again {wtf!} It's officially spring as of last Thursday so WHY the snow? WHYYYY?!  Well, since spring isn't happening outside, I decided to bring it inside :) 

 

Don't mind the crappy iPhone photo orLouie's ball... his toys are everywhere!! 
This display is my favorite so far. I love brights :)
