Two Things i Love... Around my Home

since i really enjoy doing two things i love... around my home every tuesday and my seester was interested in doing it too, i thought it would be a fun idea to get you guys involved as well!

if you're interested, then please share the two things you are loving and appreciating in your home and do a post about it on your blog. link back to me and leave a comment below so that i can see the two things you are loving too!
if we get enough people who are interested in doing it, then i'll post a mclinky next week that will allow us to see one another's posts once we link up to it.

sound fun?
hope so!

here are my two things i'm loving this tuesday

this pretty frame is from germany from the 40's i think. another wonderful piece that my gran gave me. it originally had a painting attached to it that went in front of the shelves - you could open it up and hide your valuables or what not's in it. i'm not sure what happened to the painting... maybe my gran still has it, i'm not sure. i love it though. i've had it for years and years.

i love this chair. i love the orange color and the shape. it could use some love but i just don't have the time right now. i found this guy at a garage sale by my house over the summer.
and the pretty (and very dirty) pillow was one my granny made back when. love it too.

okay, i'm dying to see your loves this beautiful tuesday so be sure to link back to me and leave me a comment letting me know you did so!

ok so i dont have pics but I love my shower curtain from urban. its clear but has pockets, and i put photos, Jacobs love notes, and chapstick, or whatever i don't have a home for inside!
Another thing I love is my Grandfathers desk that we have in my room. Ill post pics some time.....

Anna said...

I don't have pics, either, but I love my seagrass headboard from Pottery Barn (if makes me feel like I'm sleeping in a spa) AND I love my new wool rug in the family room. It is a "transitional" piece. Beautiful!

Kassi said...

oooh, the seagrass headboard sounds nice! and i love rugs... i miss having hardwood floors and being able to put pretty rugs down.

i would love to see pics eventually, anna.... and i'm so glad you have a blog now!

miss you
