what's up?

 UP on top of an antique wardrobe...
 closer UP
 UP on top of a double bookcase
and UP on a single one on the other side of the window.
EVERYTHING was a thrift store or garage sale find
(including the dollhouses)
and now at home in our library/music room.


  1. Treasures every one. Is that a doll house? I've always wanted a doll house.

    You have such an eye for not only finding the good stuff but displaying it.


  2. Happy New Year and Happy belated birthday! I love your wooden animals and am very partial to those 1950s African heads. x

  3. I loved all the up things you showed us today. What a great idea for a post!

  4. Oh, this post is making me want to go back on my idea of simplifying! I think it's going to be hard for me to part with all my 'treasures'! Your collection is wonderful, and displayed so perfectly!

    I've read back here a little on prior posts and I love your husband's handiwork on the tables, very unique pieces! And speaking of unique, your chairs are exquisite! LOVE THEM!
    And I love your idea for a Nativity tree. There is no better adornment. Beautiful!

    I have that book "Prayers for Children" too, it's just the sweetest.
    And I have a sheep collection too (although now it's boxed away).

    Great finds!
    Love and Prayers,

  5. Cute treasures :) :) :) I love the thrift stores :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  6. Oh the doll houses are so cute. I would love to make a doll house one of these days~Your home is so sweet I love seeing pictures of it ~ Love Heather

  7. Somehow items just look grand when they are displayed up high. Yours are wonderful. Being from Michigan, I naturally love the wooden deer. So elegant.

  8. The doll house is so precious. I like the idea of putting it up so high.
