Ever get on a kick where you are searching for a certain collection, or something you want to incorporate into your home?  Me too.  A lot.  

Lately it's been a hodge-podge of things like....

 Old pottery jars...

Barn doors...

Old tool or cash boxes...

Letters & numbers...

Bingo cards...

Fire hydrants (hubby is a firefighter)...


What finds are you looking for?  Collections you are collecting?  Leave me a comment and let me know!
*this is leading up to a little cottage give-away ;)


  1. I'm always loving pretty plates, cloches, pretty serving pieces that can be used for multiple things. Love jars even very simple jelly jars. I don't have but would love to collect some old signs.

  2. Hello there,
    i just found you and became a follower too...I love your style! have a wonderful evening.

    Smiles & Blessings,

  3. LOVE the old barn doors, and the old pottery. It's so cute and I'm drooling here!

  4. Birds. I am decorating our new to us cottage in a garden theme and as I love birds, I have been on a bird buying kick. I bought a cute little ceramic blue bird at Michaels , all chubby and big eyed. I bought a pair of old vintage looking bird figurines at World Market, and even a white parakeet statue at Target. Next thing on my list is vintage table clothes in my colors ..stained, and full of holes matter not, as I want to make tie backs for my drapes and trim out burlap valances using strips from them... I am sure as the remodeling and decorating goes on, so will my list.

  5. Where are you going to put those barn doors? I can see some fire hydrants, working of course, for safety.

    1. Joe- I'm really thinking of getting rid of our two tiny entry door to our bathroom and putting in a large sliding barn door instead. The hydrants are for Travis ;)


Thanks so much for popping in. I appreciate all of your lovely comments...Tricia
