two things i love around my home

I'm joining in on Kassi's fun and posting two things I love in my home! I have to tell you, it was pretty difficult considering I love my home and all its contents! First is this old silver tray I got no too long ago at a thrift store, specifically for holding photos. I made the vintage button magnets, and I change out the polaroids every week or so. I think it dresses up my kitchen wall nicely!

This set of dice is REALLY special to me because they belonged to my Grandpa. He always had a few drawers in his dresser that were filled with the most random and crazy knick knacks, just because he couldn't throw anything away! It was always fun to take a peek at what he was collecting in there, but after he died, the treasures took on a whole new meaning. After he passed away last February, Grandma let us all look in his drawers and take a little trinket. Grandpa wasn't a gambling man, and I'm not a gambling woman, but I just thought these were cute, and they're my favorite color. I keep them by my bed, always displaying 6 and 4, 3 and 5, as he was born in October (6+4=10) of 1935.
