Some of My Well Loved Dust Catchers

This is the baby cup that belonged to Ray's father. It has a chip, but it is beautiful.
Found these in an antique store. This sort of thing was popular when I was married.


She is so pretty! From 1958 (dated on the bottom) I have several of these. I found them in antique stores a long time ago. I think they are quite pricey now.

Two more of the little vases. The little girl in the hat is dated 1957, while the other little gal has $10.00 on the bottom - evidently that's what I paid for her. I did see one like her a few years ago and she was marked $60.00 so think they have gone up. I have so many things on my walls, my surfaces, and all around each room that it is really a challenge to dust! And, I must confess, I dust less all the time. However, I have this theory that dust is clean dirt - not filth - and once it is wiped it's as if it were never there. The catch is - it comes back, again and again. I am finding I can live with it for much longer periods than I used to be able to tolerate. Too many nice things to do other than spending lots of time cleaning! Getting smarter in my old age!!

From one "dusty" gal to another - who cares as long as you are surrounded by the things you love! I adore your ladies - you need to show me next time I am over. I know my eyes go into "over drive" everytime I visit because you have so many cool things to see! Later, J
