0 These are a few of my favorite things

I’ve scared the boyfriend more than once by singing line for line with Fraulein Maria in the Sound of Music, so I won’t subject you to such torture but I have been spending a lot of time playing with my new-to-me camera—thanks, Dad—and have found myself taking lots of pictures of random silly things around my house that hardly get any airtime on this blog.

I’m a big proponent of filling your home with items that mean something to you. Whether the sentiment is “I found it for $5 at a cute little junk store in South Carolina last summer” or “this came to America with my great-great-great-grandmother 200 years ago”, I love home decor with a story behind it.

Like this horseshoe that I found at a thrift store. I like to think this guy brought someone oodles of luck and now it’s my turn to have a little of what he is dishing up…


…or this bowl of my Granddad’s keys from an old ship…


…and this photo that my dad took when he and my mom were first married and gave to my grandparents as a gift…


…and this shell that I found during a much needed beach trip I took with my sister last year…


…or this wooden sign from my Gran’s house that I have perched in my guestroom until I one day have the lake house of my dreams…
