I think all of us, whether we call ourselves prim, colonial, vintage, or whatever love candles. I know I just can never seem to have enough candle holders.lol So today I thought I would share some of mine with you. Like my sheep, only one or two have some special meaning, I just like them. Here are a few.
I can't let you leave after looking at the candle holders without showing you the snuffers or wick trimmers.
I had a great aunt,in Coshocton, Ohio who was so eclectic. She had so much stuff in her house and we all used to laugh when we went there. She might have 5 clocks in one room and none worked, or 6/7 lamps and none worked. Get the picture? Well, it appears that my Aunt Cleona is alive and well in East Tn. The only difference is I call my prim and collectibles! And they all work!
Thanks again for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.

Now on to the title. I have shared with you before that my Mother always had a pet lamb when she was growing up on"the farm." After she died 10 years ago, I decided to collect sheep in her memory. A couple of years ago I downsized my collection and shared with my cousin in Michigan. Those of you who have been coming Through My Back Door for a while, know I don't want anything around me I don't just love. I am going to share some of the sheep I just love. Most of them have no story, I just like the way they look.
store. I just love him!
Well I don't want to overload you with pictures, but this is just a few of the flock. There are more that I enjoy having around. I'll share them another time.

Today I thought I would share my favorite Mustards. I fell in love with mustard a long time ago and everything that could be painted mustard was.! It was a big joke and do you know what? Those who laughed are now using mustard. I won't call any names, but one had a birthday last week!
There are some who think mustard is drab, but not me. It makes me smile. It is one color besides red, that I just love. So here are some mustard things in my house.
I hope you have enjoyed the mustard today. I believe strongly, that you should only have things and people around you that you love. I also think you should do the what you love. So today I love that you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
The Primitive Pantry is having a give away. Their blog is on my side bar. Take a peep!

I hope I haven't worn you out with red. It is not a color every one wants in their home. But it just makes me happy. By now you all know I am all about having only the things and the people around you that you love.
I wish each and every one of you a blessed day. I hope you enjoy it with the people you love and surrounded by things you love. Thank you for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
I cannot close this post without wishing my beautiful daughter Happy Birthday. Here are pictures then and now.
