 Above the two windows in our bedroom there are shelves that I enjoy changing out occasionally.  If you've followed my blog you know that we are lifetime collectors of all kinds of stuff, and a lot of it is stashed away!  I decided it was time to put the things currently on the shelves away, and bring out some different items.  
 Above is one of the before pictures, and now below the change-out.

 Below is the other 'before' shelf.
 And, now, the after.

We probably have enough collections to change out each week, but that probably won't happen.  I hate ladder work -- dusting will be about it for awhile!!

I'm joining the following parties this week.  Please check these blogs out and thank them for hosting!

I spotted an old sewing machine! Was it a toy? I have a small pink one in my sewing room, but it's downstairs and out of sight for anyone except me. I don't care for ladder work either so I wait until Sarah and Alex come home and they can change my light bulbs. Only about 1 1/2 quarters left of the school year!♥♫

This looks so neat Sally- those gears are such a neat addition! What were they from do you know?

It's fun to have a shelf like this to dress up with different things. It was fun to see all the different versions! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday!

I love your collection. I have that same little sewing machine and pitchers. I even did posts about them on my blog. It's nice to see someone else that loves to collect what I do.
