What Not Party~You Are Invited ♥

=We at ETSY COTTAGE STYLE  are having a party....a party of our "what-nots."  This party is a surprise party as we have an extra Monday this month.....I hope we will find a way to have this party from time to time because I think it is so much fun to see others treasures....I have many "what nots", but I am just showing you my very olde Hoosier cabinet and what is on it at the moment.  *It is one of my lifes pleasures to arrange and rearrage from time to time.*

I am just sharing this little bit of my little treasures as I have showed all of my what nots at some time or other.....
Enjoy!

This is a part of a Robins Egg from last year, sitting in the daintiest little nest our granddaughter Miss Allie found in her NY yard a few years ago and saved for me.....Bless her!  I love it, it is such a treasure just like her....
My spoon rack painted by our Celestina Marie
The top of the Hoosier Cabinet.  The pitcher with four china glasses a gift from my husband for our tenth anniversary and found in Prescott, AZ.
The card, behind the china, of Madonna and Child is a Christmas card from our youngest daughter....I love it and I love it there as I can see it when I sit and read in my favorite chair...
My condiment stand, another anniversary gift and it came from Washington state, when we were living there...

Miss Allie when she was very little in a sunflower frame with a petite teapot that is an artichoke..
I got this with a carrot teapot from my dear friend at her shop in Brawley, CA. I will show them on another post together....


This little clay pot, sitting by Allie in the sunflower frame was made by her one day when she about five  *she is now 17*  She knew even then, how I love flowers and so with her own ingenuity she got my craft glue and her drawing paper and this little pot and went to creating...When she handed it to me she said, "Now you will always have a flower to look at."  Priceless and so dear to my heart!  What better "what not" is this?

So, this is my what not share for today and I do hope we have another of these parties one day!
Hugs and Smiles

Hi Jil!
I just love your What-Not Hoosier!!!!
And, your what-not's are priceless.
So glad you came for the party. Thanks for the suggestion...maybe we'll add some 'inbetween' or surprise parties like the What-Not Party more often.

Hi Jil, Love what you posted. The flower pot with your granddaughter's handmade flower is priceless, it was my favorite. Great post. Don't know if you received my note that my blog was fixed and you could take my button now. My son came and he fixed it. So come for it when you can. Hugs...Lu

Hi Jill, just wanted to say thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I love the Orioles and I love squirrels too. I don't think the squirrels like oranges but they do get into my bird feeders.

Have a great day!
