My Place and Yours:: On The Shelf


I could show you my collection of stilettos given they've been put on the shelf because these days, I don't really want to pounce around the house in a pair of heels, only to trip over the Doctor's collection of trains, or Tiny's menagerie of softies. I'd need a stack hat for that, and that would ruin my eternal bad hair day. So I won't, because who wants to look at my collection of unused sad stilettos, only to be cast into a sad-on? Not me!

So I'll show you this shelf instead.
:: a deco mirror that was being tossed about by a colleague
:: a Sukie calendar
:: a shot of my Mum and Dad in courting days (I love the word courting)
:: a bird print from a church sale - 50 cents
:: soldier skittles found in the bin
:: vintage plate found no doubt in a church oppy
:: Matt's collection of beer bottle tops (ahem)
Are you playing My Place and Yours? You're not? Well got over to Mikes and hook yourself up with the fun-skis.
I'm this week's Theme Queen, but my crown has fallen off and I haven't figured mine out yet. I promise I will keep thinking.

OMG! I have a moccona jar full of bottle tops too! From when, I like, used to do wild things like drink beer and such.

(I've spent all morning with my SoCal SIL. It shows, right?)

I dig your skittles, I bet they whisper to one another "How lucky are we to have been rescued from the bin by lovely Lexi and her smalls."
