Random Facts and Random Pictures!!

Happy Middle of the week to all!
Today it's still gloomy outside, even in sunny California.
I took some random shots around my house.
Here is my crown hanging outside the guest bath.
As you know, I have a mini obsession with crowns. (Maybe I was a princess in a former life)


This lovely chippy header, I got from Ebay. I just love the color.



I change this cloche with the seasons and holidays.

I started a small collection of vintage loving cups. I think they add charm.

My other mini obsession is with France. I am still trying to get brave enough to fly there.

I love these old chippy corbels. They look especially good in front of my red wall.

OK, now for more boxes, and news that I forgot to mention in my last post.
Jennifer Grey is now carrying a line of pretty paper items, including some of my paper art.
She has boxes, cones, mini banners, and many other items from many different artists, you will love.
www.theoldpaintedcottage.com/ Check out her new category called Paper Post.
Now in my last post I was tagged, and I had to tell 5 random facts about myself.
I did that, and asked when you all posted a comment to leave a fact about yourself as well.
Here is what some of you said.
Meg, "I love chapstick, and
can't go to sleep until I put
it on."
Deb, My daughter Kate and I are often referred to as the Gilmore Girls. Best friends and that's who we look like."
Jenn," My aunt got me interested in antique tea cups. Each person always got a different cup."
Liz, "I never go anywhere without mascara and eyeliner on."
Karla, "I love boy bands."
Pat ,"I have useless trivia floating around in my head, especially about old movies."
Junie, If on a desert island, I would want every book ever printed."
Linda, " I love fresh flowers, and always have one on my nightstand."
Kimberly, I love eating Lays potato chips and green onion dip, lots!"
Ashley,( in my opinion one of the best talents I have ever heard of), I can write backwards in cursive, pages and pages, it comes naturally." (WOW)
Michelle, " As a teenager I wrote fantasy stories about leading a double life."
Thanks for all of your random facts, and for playing along. It was fun!
Have a great day!
Rosemary

Don't you just love the little snapshots inside homes we share on line? I do, too!

That picture of you daughter and you is so sweet. Funny, every time I look at a picture of my daughter, I think the same thing...thank goodness for good dentists! Those smiles sure look good.
Have a good day! Donna

I'm not a big fan of flying. I don't hate it enough to avoid it completely, but it's not my favorite thing. However, Paris. Paris is worth it! I visited it two years ago and I have thought about it every single day since. And now I'm thrilled to be planning a return trip in April. My husband HATES flying, and yet he's decided he's getting on a plane to figure out how one can fall in love with a city.
If it's just flying over the ocean that bothers you, and not flying in general, you might try a flight that goes up over canada and just skips over a small bit of ocean to Greenland and then another quick jump and you're over Europe.
