I am a Victorian Soul, who lives in a small townhouse that was built in the mid 1970's, not a huge Mega Mansion!! I just recently lost my Hubby Joe, who was a Retired Letter Carrier. I worked night shift as an RN on a Hospital based Rehabilitation( Physical Medicine) Unit for 37 years before I had Knee Replacement Surgery and officially Retired in 2019 after 41 years working in Direct Patient Care ... I am so glad that we retired at 62 years of age and got to spend that time together before he passed....I still do love Retirement!!!!

A Tale of 3 Curios, Part 3

 Some time ago ( last year), I mentioned that my neighbor's sons were kind enough to give me 3 Curios from my neighbor Elly's house, which we are watching because she needed to be placed in a Nursing Home due to Alzheimer's.

I displayed these 2 Curios in my Dining Room.

Before I go any further, I want to Thank Dee ,over at Meatloaf and Melodrama, for featuring my post, Spring Front Porch 2015, from last week's Snickerdoodle Sunday Party!
And I also want to Thank Jes, over at Strangers and Pilgrims on Earth , for also featuring my post,
Spring Front Porch, from last week's The Art of Home Making Mondays Party!!
Thanks so much, Dee and Jes!!

Please stop by and visit and link up to these wonderful parties!!

Now I want to show you the 3rd Curio that was my dear neighbor, Elly's.....
 It is a corner Curio, which was a nightmare to photograph!!
 I decided to put it up in my Guest Room.........
 It has actually been here since before Christmas but I just did not get around to doing a post on it.......
 I have been working in the Guest Room for the past week....

Cleaning out and re-arranging and adding some new things , which I have to paint.......

It's all part of my Quest for this year of simplifying my life so I can LIVE, which is my One Little Word for 2015!!

The curio fits nicely in this corner of the Guest Room , which I call my little Bed and Breakfast Room.
 I was able to keep the shelf above it and moved the other shelf that I had here into the Craft Room.......
 I took photos both with and with out the Light in the Curio on.......

There is a lot of reflection because of the mirrors......
 You see that I draped some greenery around the top of the Curio.....
 I decided to display an Angel Collection that I have and originally displayed in the Hutch in the Living Room.........
  Since the Guest Room is yellow and pink, I thought that they would look better in this room........
  I also chose to display my Mother's yellow Depression glass in this curio.........
 The pattern is Lorraine Basket.....
 On this shelf , is another angel and 2 cup and saucer sets that I bought a few years back at The Christmas Tree Shop.......
 The Angels were bought at the now closed Service Merchandise Stores......
 On this shelf is a yellow Depression Glass pitcher and 2 tea cups and saucer sets bought at a Church Flea Market.......
   And a little knick knack that was one of the last things that my Mom gifted to me before she passed away......
 The pattern on the pitcher is Florentine #2.......
Another Angel is sitting on a yellow Depression Glass plate , along with a creamer and sugar , is displayed on this shelf.......
 One more Angel is displayed on the bottom shelf......
 Along with a plate and 2 tumblers.....
  Next to the Curio is Rose, sitting on a pedestal that needs to be painted white.......
   I'll share more of this room with you in the future.......
 I love the way the Curio looks lit up......
 Sorry but I took these photos during the day.......
 Another thing I worked on in this room is my Fake Fireplace and Mantle........
 Again, more in a future post.......

We have had a very cold week here with temps. only in the low 50's and in the 30's over night....

This week is predicted to be the same......

It still does not feel like Spring yet......

I was off this weekend and decided to make a double batch of lasagna, invite the kids over and enjoy some time spent with my Family!!

Also, this weekend our Church held it's Spring Flea Market........

I did NOT help out at all except for some advertising NOR did I go!!! I donated quite a bit of things and did NOT want to bring more back!!

Again, Celebrating my One Little Word for 2015 ........LIVE!!!!!
