Have I ever mentioned that family loves to pass down things of sentiment to us?
Between my family and Mike's family we have many family heirlooms at this point in our lives, and are very lucky indeed to have them.
My FIL's last visit was no different this time. His car was packed to the gills with more stuff.
The thing is, we get really good stuff.
He gave us this gorgeous tea set from Germany, that was Mike's Grandmothers. I thought oh where can I put this beauty?
Well I was able to display some of it.
I have been Spring cleaning, and did our mantel over.
|Our mantel has always been a source of decorating conflict..the clock must stay, and I want it to go!|
|Why does my husband have to have a say in the matter?|
|Love decorating with old books too...this tea set is just gorgeous!|
|Live greenery, I think I can handle keeping it alive, I hope!|
Thanks for stopping and by and as always your kind comments..
Have a great night!
Oh and who says tea cups can't go on a mantel?
I do not follow any decorating guidelines, I do what I like:)
I will be joining:
and please mark your calenders for Lucy's big event...
