Most everyone that meets me says I smile a lot...and I think I do. However, the last few months were more tears than smiles on a daily basis...but I am moving past that! I'm smiling more again these days, and getting closer back to me. So I thought I'd start each Monday with a SMILE...listing 5 things around my cottage that makes me grin from ear-to-ear...Actually this first time, I'm going to use the letters that spell out SMILE...so here goes my first SMILE Monday...
I've shared before all the signs that I have around my home. These little inspirational words, quotes, etc. make me smile every day!
MILK BOTTLESNothing says "yesteryear" quite like the milk bottle. While I can't personally recall the era of the milkman, I do remember seeing it in classic television programs that I grew up with. Collecting these vintage bottles is one way to keep this era alive though. I adore the ones that are embossed!
I have always loved colored glass...of any type. My Dad was a collector of these glass insulators, and he and my mom brought me some of these several years ago after I made a purchase of a couple of these colored glass goodies. I adore them...and how they adorn the stairs up to the bedrooms. While the clear and turquoise color fits perfectly into my decor, I long to find an amber or purple insulator on one of my "junk jaunts" someday :)
...and LOTS of it!
I am definitely a girly-girl and adore lace and ruffles all all kinds!
Doilies can be found all around my cottage!
My beautiful baby girl!
