Things I Love

I thought I would share just a few of the things I love.


I collect them like they are little foundlings needing a home. 

I can't drive by an orphaned chair sitting by the curb.

Love them! 

Oil Paintings

Oh my gravy!
I can't resist a little floral oil painting

 or one with a charming bucolic scene. 

I need to have open cabinets to display.

Open cabinetry is as essential as a good pair of shoes! 


Oh my.
I love rescuing lamps.

 Why do I think they all need to come home with me?

Last but not least!


Who needs to sit anyway?

Sleep is overrated. 

Just a few of my favorite things.

  1. Oh yes, I love anything with roses! I rescue lamps, cloches, and even a few chairs! I'm a sucker for old linens, doilies, table cloths...Oh my, so many things! Beautiful oil paintings you have there!

  2. Great list! I like many of the same things. Chairs are something I need to work can never have enough.

  3. A great collection of "loves." I wish I had open shelving...I don't have any, but I do love the way it looks.

  4. Hi Katie, I just found your lovely blog and I am so glad that I did. We share some of the same favorite things and your home is so warm and comfortable . . .absolutely charming. I have been going through some of your post and I fell in love with your calico apples. I am your newest follower. Connie :)

  5. I loved seeing these pretty glimpses into your home! Love your bedroom. So pretty. I have a thing for pillows and chairs too. Oh....and lamps. Just when I think I won't buy another one, I find one I can't walk away from. LOL!

  6. How lucky for me that you are sharing your favorite things right on my first visit! All the better for me to get to know you better. Chairs by the is it that I seem to be the only one who never stumbles upon a chair on the curb? I would take it home in an instant!
    I am a new follower! Looking forward to seeing more from you!

  7. Pillows, lamps, chairs -- yes! My husband just says "do we really need another..." and then fill in the blank. And all I say is "yes, we do!" :)

  8. I too have a thing for chairs! Seriously it is hard to pass up a cool chair.And oil paintings are another must have! Love all of your other collections too!
