The star was a Christmas gift from my 13 year old nephew who made it out of Saguaro ribs. Also, one of my favorite items!
I love living in Central Phoenix and one of the perks is the old houses. We live in a house that was built in the 30's, and love it! We've talked about moving and looked at new homes, but they just don't have the old charm that this house has. Of course, it would be nice to have some of the amenities that go with a new home... like a dishwasher. :) Here are 2 things I love about our old home:
Isn't that cool?
Our Beautiful front door. I know, its just a door, but it has so much character and totally reminds me of cyclops with a mustache. Being an AZ girl, I have to point out the copper piece in the window.
Last year my oldest nephew made us this for Christmas:
I'm not sure what it's called, but he said this is how people used to make guitars- he tuned it and everything! I love it!
And here's another gift- from my brother. He made them for Albs; they are Sesame Street records that he framed. So cool and such a great idea!
And then there's this:
C traced this saucy vixen and painted her one day when she was feeling artistic. At first I was not super crazy about her (the vixen), but that's when we had white walls. Now that we have super bright walls, she actually fits in and I love it!
I wanted to share my excitement for my China cabinet, and show you some of the things that help give our small, old home character. While doing this post I realized that the boys in my family are good gift givers! I need to step up my game!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you're having a great week!
