Things are Looking Up

It's no secret that short people are vertically challenged.
Not only height wise, but also in just thinking "vertically".
I'm trying to remember to take advantage of all my space.

OK, who am I kidding...?
it's just another excuse to decorate a flat surface.

So today I put on my stilts and decided to share
the space on top of my kitchen china cabinet.

Actually I just climbed on top of one of my chairs to get these shots.

I've always thought how horrible it would be to fall and hurt myself
and have the ER person ask me what I was doing when I fell.
Not to mention that I was still in my pajamas when I was doing this.

anyone else out there do this sort of stupid stuff?
yeah, I know you're there...

The top of this cabinet doesn't change a whole lot
due to afore-mentioned reasons;

I'm short.
It's tall.
My husband complains that every time he walks in here:
it all rattles so much he thinks it's going to go crash.

Stacked McCoy, Hull, and USA pottery vases

And vintage white ironstone creamers
setting on pink depression glass salad plates.

I took this blurry shot so you could hopefully see the patina of this old basket.

It has some white paint along the sides and bottom.

It's old, people...
 older than me.

Oh, and I was happy to learn that my ceilings are not "popcorn",
they are "orange peel"...

I feel so much better now!!!!

I'm linking up with some other gals for some fun parties this week.
Be sure and check out Kathleen at Faded Charm.
She has some fun coming your way.

and btw, I always hated that song about "short people",
having no reason....grrrrrr
