In the china hutch…
Mom gave me the Christmas plate when I was a little girl. I always ate Thanksgiving left overs on it as a child. The snowmen are ornaments that I picked up several years ago at a store in Union Square. I love how they have stars coming out of the top of their heads!
There is my girl, only this time in the form of a snuff box! I have these two different ones and I’d love to find a third to round out the collection. I love all items in sets of odd numbers.
Tea for two, two for tea! I started collecting snuff boxes during college when I took a class on decorative arts and antiques. I wrote a paper about snuff boxes and became completely in love with the idea of collecting them!
The bride was a gift from a family friend in 2006 when we were engaged. I gave Mr. D the decopage paperweight – it has the address of our first home together embedded under the glass. No matter where we live, this “Greene and Prince” will always be our first home together as newlyweds.
The cork and caps are from champagne bottles at our wedding. The “chairs” are made from the wire that holds the cork in. Our wedding officiant made it for us as a gift and gave it to us at the end of our wedding reception. Sweet, no?
