Happy Birthday Duhgall and Some Of My Favorite Vintage Bits

"Do what you love and do it often" is one of my favorite sayings.  And with this, I am planning on doing a lot of sewing in my new room that I shared in my last post.  I have a soft spot in my heart for the cute and whimsical stuff and filled my room - sparingly (did I hear a "yea right"?... ha ha) with the little things that I have collected over the years that bring a smile to my face.  A lot of the vintage collections have been gifts from friends and other things I have purchased over time.  You may recognize a lot of them from having been shared on my blog before.

The next few photos are the things inside my white cabinet.

On the wall next to the window is a Victorian shadow box that I found at a local antique store years ago.  My friend Marsha had it for sale in her space.  It is one of those pieces that I will never get tired of.  Inside are little cottages that are incense burners, squirrels, mushrooms, gnomes and a neat metal Red Riding Hood bank.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!  

Thank you for the kind words left for me on my last post.  

Guess who turns 9 tomorrow???  You got it, my baby boy, Duhgall Piper.  I cannot believe he is NINE already!  Happy Birthday to my little Scottie Boy!!!!   Love you tons and tons!!!!

Till next time.....

Happy birthday to Duhgall!

I love all the treasures in your cabinets. It all just made me feel so cozy that I wanted to wrap myself up in one of the sweet quilts :)

Happy Birthday Sir Duhgall! My beloved Lab is also 9. We have only had him for two years, and I adore him so much. I find myself sad sometimes, because big dogs don't live too long. At any rate, we do love our furry buddies, don't we?
Now...onto the previous post I missed. Wow....I am in love with your new creative space! So many fun things to look at. I love the collections on display. I love the white cabinet! I love the pincushions. Love the table you sit at to sew. Love the new floor! Love it all. It is so nice to have our own space to be creative in. Enjoy it!
I have been missing a lot I see! But I am happy to be back and catching up.
XO Kris

Happy Birthday to Dughall! He is such a sweetie, and I have always loved all the darling scottie touches you collect and use in your decorating. The shadow box is wonderful, what a lovely space!

Claudia said...

I love all your sweet treasures. Somehow the smallish items, wee little doodads, are what call to me and I know they call to you.

Happy Birthday, Duhgall! Scout sends a big hug.

I have a weakness for sweet faces on tiny figurines and you've got some of the cutest little peeps I've ever seen in your collections, Becky! I'm glad you showed a close-up of your shadow box that I've been coveting since your last post. Adorable!! I've loved your whimsical style since the very first time I visited your blog years ago. Thanks for sharing today, and Happy Birthday to Duhgall!

What?! No storage bins under the bed? That is my ultimate goal in our home, to remove all the dust collectors under our beds. :o)

The little soldier boy and the drummer are my favorites. And then there are the quilts - the red and whites are lovely!

Becky, you just blessed my socks right off today!! I had liked a Pin of your quilted blankets on Pinterest the other day. Little did I know that when I went back to follow the link today I would see that you have one of my ring pincushions in your beautiful cabinet! I feel really honored to have a smidgen of something I made in your amazing space! Happy Birthday, Dughall!!

Happy Happy Birthday to Duhgall Piper! He's such a doll Becky!
I love your collections in that cabinet. So many charming things, I can even imagine how sometimes you probably just stand and stare at it and smile. How do I know this...because I have a few places like that here :)
