Thankful Monday *Home Edition*

Today is so cool, wet, and dreary. I worked a half day and am so thankful for the short work day and Two Poots Manor! Such a cute and warm home to come home too!! So today I went around and took pictures of all the thing in Poot Manor that I love and am thankful for.

*A bowl of yarn waiting to be used!*


*This painting that Poot painted for me last Christmas. It warms my heart!*


*My vintage Owl Clock and apron collection*


*My Blythe Doll: Aggie Mae**



*My vintage Thermos Collection*


*My growing collection of Owl necklaces*


*My moustache RVA mug, Strawberry Teapot, and Chocolate Mint Tea*



*Our sock monkey family*

(from left to right: Bernice Merriweather, Clarence Remington, Rufus, and Ramsey McGillicutty) Yes we are dorks!!



*This thrift store find*



All these things are just "things" but they make our home ours. They put a smile on my face! What are you thankful for today? If you do a post on what you are thankful for I would love to read it...just link it me in the comments.

Oh and don't forget about the 100th post giveaway. You have until Thursday to get your name in three times!

XOXO

I love the colors in your kitchen!

ooh, and I have the magnifying owl necklace--I kind of stole it when I worked at delias (it was "broken" and my boss was just going to throw it out--so not really stealing!).

I LOVE that strawberry teapot! My mother has a vintage strawberry shaped cookie jar that I am calling dibs on when I move out.
