i'm not much of a collector. i just buy things i love. though i don't "collect" them, i do love sweet little lamps, small tables, cottage pillows and old frames. but now i find myself passing up these old loves because i have found a new love...
the number 5.
i'm very visual and sentimental. so i see the number 5 as representing the 4 of us plus God. hence, my new love for all things 5.
i bought this sweet little creamer yesterday. as i walked by it, it caught my eye. do i need another creamer? nope. did i need this one? yep!
our backyard garden is bursting with white impatiens right now. i just love them tucked inside my special creamer. (clearly, i love words too. notice how many words you can see in just this one photo?) bread, love you, eat.
maybe a new collection amassing before my eyes?
i bought this great lamp at target last year. how could i resist? it was the last one on the shelf. i thought i hit the lottery. i don't think i've ever put anything in my basket quicker than this baby!
(i found the wicker shade at a thrift store for $1).
and then i found this little gem in the street in front of our house.
it had my name (i mean my number) written all over it.
the contents of this little glass dish says to me,
"the key to the circle of life is family plus God."
i look at it every morning while brushing my teeth.
i recently took a photo of this old curio and sent it to my friend.
the subject line read, "thank you."
i thanked her for not buying it from my blog sale. after she decided not to get it, i walked around with it for two hours trying to figure out where i could put it.
it found its new home right behind my sink.
i just love the dark wood nestled among all the white.
thank you, marcy! i owe you one.
so that's my new love for all things 5.
i have a new little design project i hope to work on soon.
and, yes, it involves the number 5.
if it goes as planned, and after i hit a few thrift stores, i'll show you the big reveal.
enjoy placing a few things around your home that reminds you of Him.
He makes a house a home!
(the "eat" plaque and number 5 creamer can be found at hootnannyhome.com in westlake village. if you haven't been, you will love it! go!)
