Happiness in my home

The snow is falling heavy.  I have chosen not to leave the house today due to this fact.  I have been on a spiral of emotions this past week with some pretty bad news in our family.  On days like today when I feel like the walls are closing in, I feel it is best to focus on the things that make me happy.  Simple things in my home that bring a smile to my face and remind me of the beauty there is when so much ugly has been filling my brain.  As I was taking my pictures I was already feeling better remebering the stories behind the things I love.  So here I share with you a few photos of my home, my happiness.  Love, Jennifer
My old industrial sorter from my Friend Val.  I love it in my Bathroom.
Picked this old mirror up for 2 dollars from a house they were tearing down across from farmer's market.  I loved it just the way it is...tattered and all.
My hobnail goblets purchased at the last Funky Junk Show from my friend Barbara Schriber.
I love this, it hangs at the north end of our living room. 
Glenn's tent fort makes us all happy!
My grandmothers old pitcher holds bath supplies.
So true.
My grandmother Clara painted this, it is one of my most treasured items in my home.
I believe that glass bottle should be used and displayed, they were in storage for too long.
My treasured "Prince Edward Island" postcard that my friend and business partner Hollie sent me for my birthday.  Someday I will walk these fields and dream of Anne.

The snow storm today brought me some peace. I to chose not to leave the house. I turned on the fake fire and sorted some of my fun collections. It was healing. God Bless you as your family is faced with challenges. Love your home great photos. I always enjoy your shows.

I collect old wine or water goblets and just love your hobnail ones. I have yet to find that lovely color. Good find!
