A Few of My Favorite Things

I was recently inspired by another blogger to start sharing some of my favorite things.

Hope you enjoy seeing some of my treasures.

A Few of My Favorite Things - Living VintageThis photo of a very contented kitty is tucked into my cubby cabinet in our home office.  I discovered it at an antique shop many years ago and almost didn’t buy it.  I’m glad I did — I smile every time I look at it.

A Few of My Favorite Things - Living VintageI used to be an avid mountain biker and began collecting miniature bikes several years ago.  This one, made out of buttons and wire, is one of my favorites.

A Few of My Favorite Things - Living VintageI never tire of looking at my antique dog collection.  The terriers are my favorites.

A Few of My Favorite Things - Living VintageI bought this tiny crocheted elephant to give to my sister — she collects elephants — but I just couldn’t part with it.

Sorry, Melissa!  You may get it one day.

  1. I love seeing some of your faves, Kim. The bike from wire & buttons – clever! But, oh those dogs, especially the terriers. I fall for those, too, and end up giving them to my daughter with the Welsh terrier (whether she wants a collection or not, lol). Yours are absolutely adorable. Most of those pictured look to be metal (my preferred – sturdier).

  2. I so love all your favorites!!! What are the dogs made of??

  3. So much fun to peek into your collections! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love that little bike made of buttons and wire.

  5. How cute! I love the terrier playing the violin. Where do you put your little dogs? I find the cutest little things but they tend to get lost in cabinets.

  6. Love the wire and buttons bike. Actually, love all your collectibles. Visual treat.

  7. love the cute dog collection esp. kim:) the elephant is great! i cannot crochet a thing!

    • Me neither, Lynn. My mom tried to teach me several years ago, and my stitches were always way too tight, so tight my pieces would curl. I finally gave up in frustration.

    I am so glad that you shared some of your favourite things with us. I really liked the small bicycle made of wire and buttons. So simple and so wonderful.
