The objects of my affection!

Hello!! Hope everyone is out planting flowers and playing in the sun!

We have certainly been enjoying these nice temperatures :)

We've been finishing up the backyard garden (will post all about that when it's done!), walking to school almost every morning, and of course, sneaking in a few trips to the ice cream shop that is almost dangerously close to our house :)

I have displayed a few new little items that I wanted to show yall!

Ok, I am totally IN LOVE with the Post Box!! I have been keeping an eye out for one since I saw something similar in a magazine a couple of years ago. I found this one on Ebay for a good price! I have some odd fascination with the mail in general. The fact that you can put a little piece of paper in a box beside your house and it can travel all the way around the world for less than a dollar is just amazing to me! I also have a {small} infatuation with all things British.

I love to wonder just what kinds of letters graced this box. Who owned her? Did she sit outside of a charming Cotswald cottage or a chic London apartment? Were there letters of love and adoration placed inside, a message of a mother to a daughter?? I could go on and on...needless to say I'm thrilled!

The only problem is I just can't decide where to put it. Right now there are about 5 different places where it would be perfect, but for now, she'll stay right there!

See that cute green folder?? I just recently got it from {Walmart}....shhhh, don't tell! :)

This loving cup champagne cooler is also from Ebay. I love the way the plant looks in it!

Now Im not quite sure what this is above, but I know it will be beautiful when I get it cleaned up. It has the initials dEk on it. This came from my a new antique/vintage store I've just happily discovered.

Hope you have a great day!!!


  1. Great finds!! Love them all!! You'll have to share the name of that new shop, then I can go there the next time I'm in your neck of the woods. By the way, have you been to that place by the Food Lion off of Bankhead, kind of behind Sonic?? Its awesome!!

  2. Good to hear from you! I love old metal mailboxes too! I want one to hang outside as a planter. I just love the silver pieces too!
    Happy Spring!

  3. I adore that POST BOX, I would love to find one...

  4. Your little red "Post" mailbox is adorable - what a fabulous find.

  5. I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me.

  6. Wow! Looking so nice and pretty well...
