I seem to be a little more home bound than usual these days, as I have a number of projects I am "trying" to complete at the house. Therefore, I am afraid you are gonna see yet more pictures of my house for White Wednesday...I promise to change the venue next week by showing you pictures of Matildas Mouse next show...Aug 22, 23, 24. We are actually having our annual "Dot" sale and Flea Market...so you can see it is double duty for me this month!

Anywhoo...The first picture is a little china cabinet I purchased years ago at the very first antique shop I rented space at. I don't know if you can see, but inside on the middle shelf is a dome. Inside the dome is my Mom and Dad's wedding cake topper! They would have been married 66 years this year. The whole topper is a sugar based one. I am amazed that it has lasted and once more that my Mom had the foresight to place it under a dome! I call this cabinet my family cabinet, because everything inside is a family heirloom that I have been blessed to watch over for our next generations.

The next two pictures are of my living room. It is a very open room. Bob and I spend time here in the morning drinking our Payne-Mason Coffee http://paynemason.com/ .

Lastly, the large cloche has a Madonna and child statue (see Another, statue!!) I found her when I was doing genealogy, and of course shopping, in Kentucky a few years ago. She is cracked, chipped, broken in places, but I just love her. You probably can't see, (I am trying to perfect my photography), but next to her is a tiny relic from St. Theresa. The crown on the Madonna's head was made by Lenea, a very tanlented gal that helps Marla out at Matilda's Mouse. She is a full time, straight A, nursing student, who manages to help us ever so much!

Well, I'm done here folks, so I'm off to see all the wonderful pictures that have been posted for WHITE WEDNESDAY. For those of you who haven't checked out the wonderful inspirational pictures posted by so many talented women go to http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ ! Thank you again Kathleen for hosting such a wonderful weekly blog event! One other note,... since I maybe still have your attention...Matilda's Mouse is being featured in Today's Vintage Living Magazine http://todaysvintageliving/ it's a nice feature article on http://matildasmouse/. Thanks for coming by..See Ya soon!
