Favorite Things

Several years ago, I posted something every Tuesday I called Tuesday's Treasures and Things. My treasures varied from fine china I had inherited, my grandmother's copper pots, paintings, treasured gifts from friends, to the wild animals of the canyon. 

Then the other day, Diane of Welcome to Lavender Dreams posted some of her favorite things and gave me the idea to do that as well. 

This time around, the treasures will be mainly thriftstore finds, gifts from friends, things that were on sale at various places and in the many catalogs I receive every month. 

I'm finally using my new Nikon camera that I bought in April. And the above two are the first Nikon pictures I'm posting. 

I have this sense that I want strong colors in my home for my old age. I feel like I want a Mexican house, a Latin home, colorful and fun. Mine is not that, but I try to brighten it up with fun things when I come upon them. 

The tray above was given to me yesterday by my friend and neighbor Joyce. The sugar and cream set I bought recently because I needed a small pitcher for the milk I get from Joyce's cows. My grandmother's small cream dish was too delicate, so when I saw this set on sale in the catalog from Through the Country Door, I decided to buy it. Here's a bigger picture:

There will be more to come. Have a great week, everyone.
