It's A New Year & Back To The Hoosier

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and has been having a great New Year.  We had a good Christmas here and the New Year has been busy.  We're planning on putting our house up for sale in the Spring so we are trying to clear out junk, donating what we can and packing up what we need to put into storage.

I bought myself a kaleidoscope, the above picture I took through the small hole at the top which took awhile to get. I've always liked kaleidoscopes.

The Hoosier has in it my things and my husbands fishing stuff. 
On the top shelf are two Fire King dishes given to me by a friend.
The second shelf has a Scottish theme since Robbie Burns day is coming up this month.
The third shelf is fishing related which is my husbands stuff he always wants me to post.
The two Hardy reels are his favorite ones he's always on the hunt for Hardy equipment.

This dish towel came as part of a wedding gift I decided to use it as a curtain on my back door.

This is a unsigned brooch my husband found for me a couple of months ago.  It reminds me of a snowflake.

This mid century modern lamp I won in a silent auction.  I ended up going a little over my limit but I think it was well worth it.

 This Hair album soundtrack I found at one of my favorite second hand stores.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.


  1. Happy New Year Denise. You have a big job ahead getting ready to sell your home.

  2. Your hoosier looks great! What a fab lamp, I definitely would have gone over budget on that. ;) The brooch is gorgeous.

    Good luck getting ready to move. It is a huge job weeding out and packing up, but I have always enjoyed the fresh start a move brings.

  3. We may be doing the same, trying to downsize our house. It is a large task! You have many lovely items and the great hoosier. Have a happy Monday! And I wish you and yours a happy, healthy New Year!
