Some Tweeks and I've been tagged

Well girls seems like this month is just flying right on by! Wasn't Christmas a few days ago? I've been working on some gifts for swaps,enjoying some reading and tweeking a little around the house.In my efforts to simplify I sold alot of stuff but some things were just to special so I packed them away they are slowly finding their way back into the displays.I realize I get to attached to things and will never be a simple girl.You love what you love...smile...Love this german mohair bear....Below my other love George.Had to rearrange so the make do my SIL made me could fit....Isn't he handsome?

Antique Childrens Games and shoes....Love the graphics so nostalgic!

These little dolls are from differnt artist but the go perfect together....

Sweet Linda sent me the crow stitchery a while back and finally got it displayed...

Added the redware pitcher to the clock keepers slant desk...

Love your displays! I have trouble simplifying also...in all aspects.



Your displays are great, I don't blame you for wanting to have them out, especially love the vintage children's items. Hope you have a great week.

Angie Berry said...

I'm with you, my friend... I don't think I will ever be a simple girl either. I just don't have it in me, lol.

I love the German mohair bear too, he is adorable! The displays that you tweaked look great. Love the patriotic! I have it in my home year round.

I had no idea that you don't have kids. My dog acts like a child sometimes so I think dogs and cats do count as kids, lol I enjoyed reading more about you. =]

Stacy said...

Love all the new "old" displays! I try to be a simple girl, but that just isnt me I guess. I like to be surrounded by "things" I love!! hehe

Love reading the answers about fellow bloggers. Helps us know one another, better. Love your tweaks. You are right blogging is fun and it isn't hard.


Hi Amy,
I love your goodies, and I think I am in love with George. I like to have my things around me too...just can't put them away or get rid of them.

It seems like I am always purging and yet, I have sooooo much stuff that I can't bear to part with. I will never be a simple girl either....
Hope you have better luck getting your Dad's stuff straightened out.

Thanks for sharing. It's fun to get to know the fun little things about people you "know". I didn't realize that you have only been blogging for 1 1/2 years, you're an old pro and I love your blog you know!

The house looks great!

I love all of your tweaking!

Oh I can so relate.....I drool over the Colonial styled homes with their minimalist decor and think "I want THAT!" But, then it comes time to "getting rid of" and I just can't - or if I do, I just use it as an excuse to get more! I love too many things and too many styles. So, "simple" I'll never be. Your displays are, as always, awesome!! Sorry I'm running so far behind here...think it's going to be my new "norm" unfortunately. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
