Seems like I started collecting antiques & sentimental keepsakes when I was 18.

My furniture seems to always lean toward oak, and I have all my paternal grandmothers oak furniture, and I have refinished it all myself. I have spent many hours stripping, sanding, and getting it to perfection. I collect old bottles, blue cobalt glass, jewelry, old kitchen utensils, dishes, carnival glass, any type glass that strikes my fancy. I love God, gospel music, arts & crafts, antiques, animals, and nature. I also play piano and organ as a church accompanist. (Read more)

  14. Thanks Eisenbach, it very well may not be mission oak. I wish I could find out as it has been in our family at least a century. I think I should replace the mirror.

  25. Theses are so beautiful, love the colors !
  26. Thanks Ren !
  27. I'm not sure, but it reminds me of an iron log holder that goes in a fireplace or stove. Maybe she made a table from one because it's so ornamental. It's low is the reason I think this also.

  49. Too funny! and yes, what did the "partly white" mean??
  50. I'm sure she will love your gift!! I think my mom used to have some of this, but I don't see it in her house anymore. Mom sales her things in garage sales and has not a clue what she is "giving" away.
