Around the house

I'm in the middle of a 9 day work stretch so I haven't gotten to go out and do anything fun lately. So today I have some more snapshots from around our house. 
The curved doorway from the kitchen to the dining room is one of my favorite things about our house. I wish all the doors were like that. It's hard to get a picture of it, but I've been trying to fill the kitchen walls with red things. Here is one side of the doorway. You can see my silly daruma collection on top of the cabinets too.
 Here is my little collection of bull dog salt and pepper shakers, and a chippy tooth pick holder.
I finally found some vintage fake flowers to fill a few of my planters with. Thankfully the cats are not interested in them. How sweet is that mama and baby koala planter?
Oh I am itching to get out and go somewhere! Thankfully we've got two little trips lined up soon. We're  also trying to finalize where we're going to go for Travis' week off in the summer. I'm thinking either California or New England so far.

  9. I love it when you show pictures from your home. What is up with the two octopi? Are they vintage? I've never seen anything like that and I've pretty much seen it all. Cause I'm old, lol.

  11. I have always admired those kind of doorways like the one to your kitchen, lucky you! Your house is cute as a button. I really need to take a page from your book in learning how to "curate" all the knick-knacks. Your tiny little vignettes of ceramic koalas and pepper shakers and all manner of adorable things are just so perfect! Hope you get some time off from that schedule (9 day work week! Gad!), and have some free time to pick again soon! :)
