"You can't have everything. Where would you put it?" ~Steven Wright

I have noticed in my books and magazines that metal tins are a great way to store items that you don’t want out for everyone to see. (A scrubby pad in the kitchen, soap, matches, etc.)

"Its not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." ~Henry David Thoreau

I find beauty in objects that belonged to children.  The little dress could just hang on the wall as art.  The little wheels off a baby buggy have endless possibilities.  The doll trunk is perfect for holding makeup in the bathroom, towels or paper napkins in the kitchen.  The tractor would look great anywhere you place it.  I think it would look at home in a child's room or even a family room.

Time In A Bottle ~ Jim Croce

If I could save Time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you


"Off with her head!"

- Lewis Carroll,
Alice in Wonderland

“Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found.”

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~e.e. cummings

Just in time for Valentines Day

"Mirror, Mirror on the Wall"

"She had a magic looking-glass, and when she stood before it and looked at herself she used to say:
"Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Who is the fairest of us all?"

Vintage Metal Sign

I love this old metal sign, it sold before I had a chance to hang it in the store.

Have nothing in your houses
 that you do not know to be useful
or believe to be beautiful. ~William Morris
