A Glimpse Into The Room Of The Neo-Victorian...

This is a little table that my great grandpa made. I love it...it is made of solid wood and holds my Bible, devotional books (in the drawer), my iPod and it even manages to hold a stack of my current quilting projects underneath.

This is a solid oak quilt rack that my great grandfather made, and it holds the 'Around The World' quilt I finished this year, as well as the quilt that my dear friend Lyn made for me...and that little frog perched on top of the quilt rack was a gift from Lyn as well. *I also love Longaberger baskets*

The tea cup was from my great grandmother (Oma Lotte.) I love my little Mary Engelbreit tin...I use it to hold all of my hand quilting essentials. The large vase was a lovely gift from Lyn (Lyn you gift me too much....and I thank you! I *heart* my treasures from you!) 

I love books old and new.....this is about half of the books, I alone, have in my room.

These are old 'antique' avon perfume bottles that I simply adore....they were my great grandma's (Ruby Euliss Gay.) The white one is my favorite of the two old perfume bottles, because she looks Victorian-ish!

I love Polish pottery...and tea pots!!! I have an old green hymn book and an old coin collectors book that came from my great grandpa (Walter Gay.) Okay, so the sewing box in the back there does indeed hold my needles and sewing notions, but it is not old it is sort of new-retro-ish.

My little indoor plant, a cute little fern, that I have actually managed to keep watered, and alive in my room for a few weeks now. 

I hope all of you blog readers and fellow bloggers have enjoyed getting a glimpse into my place of peace,
-Daughter of the King
