Yes, I know I missed the first nine weeks of the Hunt for Joy Challenge but week ten collections jumped out at me.
I am all for hunting for joy, too.
Not a Beatrix Potter rabbit but she’s knitting!
Here are some of my rabbits and also some Beatrix Potter Figurines. They’ve been with me for decades. I don’t add to the collection. They sit on a shelf of the lawyer’s bookcase with the glass front down but to take a quick photo of them tonight I lifted the glass. Dusting them might have been a good idea.
Have a collection you want to display? Email me a photo and I will add it to the post.
I love to hear how your collection got started. How you curate it. Do friends add to your collections?
Tulips in a glass vase or pitcher in the front hall. They add color and warmth to the winter’s gray.
People at Work. Hard work.
NIcholas Karam leads the team at Karam Restoration of Natrona Heights. They can definitely take pride in their excellent work.
You can see from the photo below how bright and clean looking the brick is now that it’s been restored and new mortar has been put in. They are good at Brick Pointing for sure.
They would arrive before the sun was up and worked in cold temperatures, long dark days.
Today they came and took all the equipment and cleaned up the place. Rinsed the brick again. It’s a pleasure to pull up to the house and see it looking rejuvenated. Plus the porch roof won’t fall down from the missing mortar in the columns. I was thinking the house was built in 1920 but went and looked again and it says 1900.
(Now if only my carpenter would finish the wood that needs to be replaced)
Our first photo was four members of the team
Dovecote, a vintage boutique in Aspinwall Pennsylvania, located on Brilliant Avenue. What a great address. Brilliant!
Here’s what we discovered –
The boutique is definitely eclectic and affordably priced. Scroll down for more details. There are vintage items, consignment items, handcrafts, antiques, jewelry, home decor and holiday fun. Sports team theme including black and gold potholders and darling onesies with hand sewn embellishment, adorable ruffles.
The felted Mr. Rogers created by Artist Christine caught my eye, and the Pennsylvania ceramic platter would be cool to serve from at a dinner party.

Home sweet home. Grateful for safe travels.
