these are a few of my favorite things...

...from around my apartment.

Vintage (looking) light switch plate I installed (all by myself).

Old swapmeet beaded necklaces hanging on the bathroom wall.

Vintage aprons hanging from a hook in the kitchen.

My gumball machine! I kept putting quarters into it until a friend pointed out that it would take nickels, pennies... anything really. Bobby pins, small crackers, GIJoe figures, etc...

Some books on my bookshelf. I bought them to try to alter them but couldn't bear the thought of it!

Magnets on my fridge.

Vintage suitcases. My TV sits on top.

Old Map from abandoned school room: Stolen
Empty frames: about $5 at Saugus Swapmeet
Hollywood postcard in Ikea frame: $0.99
Picture of pidgeon taken on high school trip to New York
Frame for pidgeon picture: $1 from the Dollar Store
These are the things that make me happy on a daily basis. I used to love my Tuesday Swapmeet days in Saugus. I would wake up so early and scope everything out and come home with a trunk full of treasures.
