More treasures in my "Girlie Building"

Here are more pictures of stuff I've collected over the years. Most of the items are from garage sales, estate sales, some gifts, some childhood belongings! No matter where they are from I treasure them all and am glad to share them with you.

A little purse hangs on the wall with a beaded necklace and floral hankie tucked inside.


One shelf of my treasure cabinet holds milk glass vases with vintage beads hanging out, a vintage brush and mirror set, and vintage avon bottles. Topaz is my birthstone!

My sweet daughter surprised me this week with this Holt Howard set of Cat Shakers. I came home from work and she had been at a sale with grandma and grandpa and had thought of me! I've had my eye on this set for awhile so they were a pleasant surprise!My doggie picture. He's such a dapper fellow! I found this chalk drawing at a sale and fell in love with it. The really cool part is it is signed by the artist "Marcy 74" , the exact way I spell my name, often Marcy ends with an i or ie. I knew it was for me!


A little boy planter, he had such a sweet face and such soft colors I couldn't resit! That is all for now but there is so much more that I have to share, please keep checking back!

Hello Marcy! Your girlie building is such a delight! Oh those pine walls, I have such a fondness for them. Such treasures. Thank you so very much for your comments on my stories. I love to tell them.
