Do you have things in your house that you see every day, but don't really see? The power went out for a few minutes last weekend, when it came back on, I realized the lights were on in the china cabinet. I went to turn off the lights and realized just how sparkly everything was with the lights on. I walk by this cabinet several times a day, but I don't look at what's in it.

The glasses were a gift from my sister many years ago. I like the sparkle.
This wine glass is the newest addition to the china cabinet. It's signed by all of Kiddo's classmates from school. It was the class auction project for last year that My Guy so very successfully bid on. There is a whole set of glasses, but we have just the one in the cabinet.
I'm not much of one for nick-knacks, but the seated bride was given to me by my sister right before I was married. She told me it reminded her of me. I never quite figured that out, I never looked anything like that (other then being a brunette). So of course, this piece is one of my favorites.
Next to the bride is our wedding picture. My bouquet was yellow roses, so the frame was very appropriate (another gift from my sister). One of my sister-in-laws took the picture. We had asked her to shoot black and white film for the wedding. You know I've been married a while, you could still get black and white film developed when we were married (and there were still film cameras). This picture is our favorite from the ceremony.
So those are my favorites this week. Maybe I should turn the lights on more often, no telling what other favorite things are lurking in the shadows around here. Check out Quilting in my Pyjamas for more spotlighted favorites.
