Show and Tell Friday...some favorite things from around the house!

 A favorite Antique mirror reflects a vintage lamp and an old metal
crucifix under a cloche in the living room.

 This little German made cherub with heart baskets was a favorite antique store find  and he always starts to appear this time of year for Valentines Day.

 A ceramic chicken and an old English tea pot that my brothers found in a junk pile when we lived in England adorn the top of the kitchen cupboard.

I have a think for metal, marble and prism candle sticks but they are great grouped together with this old Victorian lady pyrography plaque, she is a fav!

This pretty plaster "lovers" plaque inside this old ornate frame in our bedroom is a favorite as well.

The "Queen" of the house, my old antique dress form.
She is a lovely lady in all her finery , I won't part with her!

And recently I put a bunch of my favorite little antique and vintage mirrors around our vanity mirror in our master bath. I really like how it looks and with the reflection of the chandelier too.

My heart always beats a little fast when I see an old bird cage, not sure why but they are just so precious.
This old hand made one I found years ago at Larkspur Farms when they had their fabulous sales.
It hangs in the kitchen now.

 And this rather tattered one was a find but I could tell it needed some love and a space to call it's own.
It always helps out the kitchen decor by resting atop the kitchen cupboard.

Thanks for dropping by my blog, hope you enjoyed something during your visit.
with hostess Cindy for Show & Tell Friday!

Linda I loved seeing your favorite things around your house. You have some great stuff! That little cherub is adorable and the large mirror in your master bathroom is fab! And that dress form!!....I love it!! Where did you find her?

I had a great time at Pacific Gallery. Even though most of the prices are way too high for me it's still fun to look and dream *winks* Vanna
