Some of my own collections

I thought I'd share some pics of things I have at home.  I have several other collections, but these are all I could muster up this morning before heading out to work.  Enjoy!

These are a few items from my anthropomorphic collection.  I just love looking at these cheery smiling faces every morning! 

Miscellaneous advertising items on top of my English kitchen cabinet

Here is my jadeite collection housed in my English cabinet.  I have about 200 pieces, and although I no longer actively look to buy jadeite, if I find a piece that is really cheap I will buy it.

A small portion of my vintage tablecloth, potholder and apron collection.  I have half of the English cabinet stuffed full of these items.  I just love vintage fabrics!

 Here is my pitcher and drinkware collections started by accident.  I started compiling sets really cheap to put in my booth then I found I couldn't part with them. 

This is my vintage kitchen utensils collection.  They are hanging on a basket tree from the ceiling.  It's a great way to display them and have them up out of the way.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Thanks for checking out my stuff!

Just back from Indiana!

I finally got to bring my 50's kitchen cabinet home that I had been storing at my Grandma's house for two years.  I bought this cabinet for $80 at an estate sale in New Paris, OH and hauled it 1,000 miles back to Texas. 

I'm going to paint to it and display some of my jadeite in it!
