a few views

I was in the process of assembling a Raggedy display on my hutch.

The shelf trim was made from the stock market page of the newspaper!!
At left you can see a peek of one of my red and white patchwork quilts I made.
Some Milk Glass, ironstone and vintage red and white crochet goodies all set up to take photos for listings. A few favorites will remain living with us.
Raggedy Ann collection, many of the items to be listed. Antique soft sewn 3 bears set on top shelf with 3 bears pottery porridge bowls. Bears to be listed.
The chair was Bill's Mom's. He said she always had a sheet over it the whole time he was growing up with his 6 siblings... we had it reupholstered, cuz I wanted it to be red.
My painted stencil work in the hall.
Blue Willow and brown transferware on the shelf
and vintage calendar plates above. Only the brown transferware from England will stay with us...the rest to go to new homes.

Didn't we all have feathered bangs?? I happened to sport the Dorothy Hamill cut for many years, I think that's what I may have now! No, just kidding...I love your Raggedy Ann collection and it's so sweet your kitty wanted to get in on the photo shoot! And about that laundry ~ it's the never-ending curse but have your washer break and your thankful for every piece you fold!! xxoo, Dawn

Hahahaha! I love the way that cats have to be in on every photo opp! My Boo is just the same although she acts like she made it into the frame by accident.
I too love milk glass and am building up a nice collection. Thank you for the wonderful pictures of your home.

Have a lovely day

Amy, I love Raggedys Anns & Andys. I collect them too! When my 2 oldest Daughters were small their room was decorated with them.. I made curtains & bedspreads out of Annie & Andy fabric. They had dolls & plaques & photos all over! I still love making these dolls. I made a 5 foot tall Annie doll. But I no longer have her..
You have a FABULOUS collection! How delightful. Thanks for sharing them with us..~Mary~
