Welcome to another Sunday Potpourri, in which I share some of my favorite obsessions. Since last July, when I moved into this apartment, I have been pushing to fill my spaces with old and new favorites.
The old favorites include dolls I “lost” in the move in 2019, and the new ones are an expansion of the collections that I have continued throughout the past several years.
Above, note bookcases and a hall tree. Dolls fill in the spaces, and on the hall tree on the right, I have added some favorite hats and handbags.
A new handbag arrived from Amazon today…so in my bedroom, I have spruced up the little Handbag Tree there. Note the newest one on the chair next to the “tree.”
I do seem to focus in on my obsessions when life around me is not working out the way I like. Dark days and bad politics seem to take my breath away. So I go online and search for beautiful things to lighten my mood.
I always like watching Lipstick Jungle on Prime Videos, even though I have seen both seasons several times. There is something about those scenes and those characters that take me out of my gloom.
I am always looking for new shows, though, just to add to my queue of good things to enjoy.
Let’s take a closer look at some of my goodies:
The Madeline Hatter doll (above) was one that I had for several years, and then when I was abruptly moved from my condo, many items were sold or given away. Including the doll. But I found a replacement, see above, and I am supremely happy!
I am always amazed at how finding old favorites can make a difference in my life.
The Coca Cola furnishings are other things that make me happy, and I was glad to find more of those items, too. It has literally taken a year to gather many of these “lost” items into my home again.
What do you love to collect, or what activities make your day?
