#AtoZChallenge--Household Favorites

It's the A to Z Challenge!

We're blogging the alphabet along with 1000s of other bloggers.

There's a specific letter for each day and then you pick your own theme.

Our Theme: herder of cats, burner of soup
Basically...a day in the life of and all the things I love
Ahhhh I'm behind in posts! lol And I'd planned things out so dang well but,yeah, life. heh
Thought today I'd share some of my favorite things in my house.
Excuse some of the pics. Cell phone cam and all that.

Some of my family bits and pieces that are in the kitchen.
An old surgical table from my grand dad's lab and a newspaper stand that I think was my great grand mom's. I use it to keep cookbooks open while I'm cooking :)

A couple finds from travels on the left and a random purchase in college on the right.
I love my candle reindeer. He's on the mantle year round :D

My Butter Keeper. I LOVE this thing.
You can leave butter out on the counter and it keeps it sealed for freshness and spreadable.

I have a lot of art.
The cat I saw on a forum that someone had posted and I commented how much I loved it and she sent it to me just for the heck of it.

The flower was a wedding gift to my grandparents :)

My craft room. Thought right now it totally does NOT look this pretty and tidy.
But I love it. The art was a housewarming from my favorite auntie.
The table was from my granddad's lab.
The hubcaps on the wall are from Studebakers.
The thing in the front of the pic is a dollhouse Santa gave me way back when I was like 7.
Oh and the dresses on the door. Some are prom dresses of mine then one of my grandmom's dresses from a long while back.

My staircase. The art on the wall is all herd babes past and present on large canvases.
The stairs are on the right mid-finish.
And the middle pic is my decoupaged bottom wall that you see when you come down the stairs.
It's NCState year book pages from the 40-50s.

Some weird art from my gram. She did NOT like the color of my half bath after she visited and kept sending me things with 'subtle' notes of...this would look lovely in your bathroom. lol

Some funky silverware art from my mom. I love elephants.
And more art from my mom. She gave me one of the little monk angels for big events.

A clock from my great grandmom's house (on my granddad's side)

Some of the random bits in my kitchen.
Art from my gram, a match striker from a great gram, my surgical table and a birth plate.

Bookcases! The white are in the living room. The right is the guest room. I was in the process of re-doing the guest room in that pic. 

More random art. I love old cars and spotted that one at a thrift shop.
Then the cow skull. A former friend gave it to me. It's weird but I kind of love it :D

Anywho. That's some of my favorite stuff from the house :)
It's a rather odd spot to live I guess but I kind of love it all.
