Collecting Ivy....

  Ivy on a chamber pot ! I collect chamber pots and goodies with Ivy... This one had to come home with me.
Ivy on three of my favorite post cards and a wonderful cross from the Holy Land.
 I am always on the lookout for more of this paste plate early china with Ivy on it of course.

Need Keepsake Gifts ?

Busy creating Christmas Sachets.....Printed paper sewed and filled with apple and orange cinnamon potpourris. I used Grosgrain Annie's Ribbonempourium hand dyed ribbons. She has a wonderful shop at Lakewood 400 Antique Show. Seems that I never buy enough...when will I learn ...need more ribbon ! The House Tour was Great. We had very polite young men helping ladies up and down our long staircase...Great job Guys ! Our docents told everyone about the history of the building. Hope all who came had a great time. My little slice of Heaven has never been so clean ! The most asked do you dust everything? WHO DUSTS...After you turn 50  all the dust just disappears.... God is so GOOD !
