We moved it into the kitchen and it looks great in the spot I chose for it. We painted the kitchen a light shade of jadeite green (of course I have a collection of Jadeite too :) and the colors work perfectly together. This cabinet is so useful, I can't wait to fill it up with all my knick knacks and doo dads!

Well I just happened to come across a yard sale on Sunday, and even though we were on the way out to eat, I just HAD to stop. My hubby will do anything to distract me away from yard sale signs, but this one I was going to! Heck, there have not been many lately because it has been so cold, but this past weekend it hit the mid-60's, and spring was in the air.
So a junkin' I did go, and glad I am that I spotted a few really neat items. First I found one of those cool old Jefferson Mystery clocks, and it works great - just have to clean it up a bit. A pic of it is above.
I also found a really beautiful filigree choker necklace, a pair of little ceramic owls, a pair of adorable pewter penguin candleholders, and my favorite item, a gorgeous pink Cherry Blossom Depression glass footed bowl - woo hoo!!! I only paid $5 for all of it, and I will clean up the goodies and take them out to the antique store tomorrow.
I can never get enough of garage and yard sale-ing!

My favorite (well, ONE of my favorite) things to collect are these darling little ceramic Pixies from the 50's. I started out with a few, and thanks to thrifting and Ebay, now they are everywhere. I have Treasure Craft, Gilner, Pixie Potters, and many more. They make me happy just looking at their sweet faces :)
