My Secret Color….Can you guess?

Well I guess it’s a color but it’s also a metal…I’ll call it Silver/Gray
It’s a mix of things but I so enjoyed going around my home collecting shots of these and wow, one doesn’t realize how much Silver/gray one has!
Go check out your home sometime.

I do think it’s more prevalent in Primitive/Colonial/Country homes.
As I said in my previous post I will be away from my computer from Wednesday night through Saturday night so I wanted to get this post
on here before I left because hopefully when I return I will have
some new goodies to take pictures of to show you…let’s hope anyway,
I want the trip to be fruitful!!!!

So here goes…there are a lot of pictures

Bread Riser 

Candle Lamps 

Candle mold 

Candle on piesafe 

Candle Sconce

Cream whipper

Dough Riser

Ink Well Pewter

So what do you think…does it qualify as a color????
I hope so cuz it took me a looooong time to get these pictures and size them.
I still have some other photos of a different color that will come way later. I’m kind of done taking and posting COLOR pictures for a bit.


This picture is hard to see because as usual I’m in the blurry mode there – seems when I need to take quick shots, not staged shots, they are blurry but I think we nailed Emily’s gift! These are the Capri’s she has been looking at and she was delighted. She loved everything we bought her but this pair was in her heart….we didn’t even know she had wanted them so it was a nice treat for us too that we succeeded!Emily capris

Emily’s little cousin ‘Charley’ picked her own outfit to wear to the party…she wanted to be a secret fairy and this is what she picked…and so we all had to play along with ‘not knowing who she was at first’….lol


Had a special order for a small Penny Rug mat in my traditional pineapple and I love the size – it’s a 10 x 22….great for small spaces.
