It is hard to see in the picture, but on the table is a large birdcage that was a recent purchase at a local barn sale. I cant wait to decorate it for all the seasons. My grandsons love the little table and chair, it is a favorite place to play.
Just a few of my favorite toys, waiting for Santa!
More treasures collected through the years and used for decorating.
A favorite piece made from an old table, window and enamel bowl.  It is a very fun piece to decorate seasonally.
This is a glass block left over from a remodeling project, add a flower frog, a piece of ribbon and a card from Christmas past. So simple, so loved!

Here are some photos of my sunroom decorated for Christmas/winter. As you can see I have been collecting junk/treasures and like to display them throughout my home. Through the window you can see the red and white camper (a 1957 Corvette!). This was a gift from my husband which was in terrible condition insde and out, he painted the outside and in the spring we will redo the inside as a playhouse for our two grandsons. I will post pictures when the project is complete.

I also noticed the cute camper outside in the snow. How lucky you are, and it'll be so much fun to decorate! What a sweet hubby you have!!

junkcollector writes: Hello Ladies! I would like to say thanks for the comments, it has been very fun to hear from you. Lanette, I purchased the potting bench at a garage sale in Grand Forks, ND. I believe the gal is now part of Plain and Fancy Antique mall. And, if it is indeed picture #3 that Amy was asking about then you win the prize-it is a cream seperator! Amy if it's the third picture, the piece on the floor is bent pitch fork with a bird house attached, other that that I would need a little more direction as to what you are questioning.

I must say I am in awe of your camper! Earlier this year I went on a few websites to see how much a vintage camper needing refurbishing costs. I thought it could be a fun project for my husband and me to take on. Unfortunately he started back to school in August so my dream of owning an old camper was instantly gone...at least for now. Lucky you!

CottageElements writes: I'm with Kim on the camper . . . my eye was drawn right to it. Great idea to use it for a play house, and how sweet of your husband to fix it up! The potting table looks familiar, too. Since you're from Minnesota just wondering where you purchased it. Thanks for sharing. Posted: 8:31 pm on December 7th
