Good morning and come in and have a cup of coffee while it is cool enough to sit on the porch. Another hour or two and we will have to drink iced tea. It is going to be hot here again today, but no worse, not as bad really, as some of you are experiencing. Any way it is never too hot for our coffee and I am really glad to see you. Literally. I had no idea how bad my eyes were until the fog was lifted.lol I am four days post op from the second eye, and was in the kitchen starting the dishwasher and happened to look up at my microwave and WHAM! It was certainly not clean. All of my appliances are stainless with the exception of the microwave, it is white.(When you buy at a yard sale, you don't choose your color) You didn't know that? We found this at a yard sale still new in the box 10 years ago for 20.00. Anyway it was NOT clean and shiny. It is now. Wonder what my friends thought? LOL That is not all. I have cobwebs on my ceilings! Yes I did. No longer. They are vamooshed along with the ones on the light fixtures and between the doors. Oh yes mine eyes have seen.
I thought today I would share just a few of my favorite "smalls" We all have them. Of course my knife box, spice box have been shared many times, so I won't bore you with them again. I love lighting. Figure you can't have enough(Now we know why, don't we?)Here are a few of my favorites.
I also love mirrors. I think the old ones with the rough board backs are the best
Of course you all know about this one its history.
is like me, loves the backs of furniture. I always check out the backs of old pieces. He said one day he would like to display his pieces with the backs showing and I think I would like that too.
Can't talk about smalls with out sharing these.
Well those are just a few of my favorite smalls. Thanks for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Yesterday afternoon I had the nicest surprise. My friend Joy, over at the
The Olde Farmhouse
Called me from California. We have so much in common and truly enjoyed our visit. She has actually been to Knoxville, although neither of us were blogging then. I think blogland is absolutely filled with the nicest and I mean that, people.Drop over and visit her.
PSS: I promised a special picture last blog. Well here it is.
PSSS: Once more. So many of our blogging sisters are going through a difficult time right now. I won't name names, but you probably know who they are. Lets continue to lift them and their families in prayer everyday.
