Poking in Corners

Don't you always want to poke about in corners and look into closets at other people's houses? I'm so nosy like that. I want to see how they DECORATE their house! I want to see how they live! I want to look at their Granny's china they've got shoved in that old cupboard because it's not their style and they prefer Mamma's Noritake. Even when I was a girl and we'd go visit people, I would want to go upstairs and see all the bedrooms! One time I ASKED and my Mom heard me and she just about burst a gasket. She said "We don't DO that! You don't ask to see the rest of someone's house!" Well, I obeyed but I didn't buy into that sentiment for a moment. I wanted to see if they'd made their bed with a quilt. I wanted to see if they had a window seat or a reading nook or something that would seem delightful and homey.

I couldn't tell you what anyone wore, ever in their lives (unless it was an apron, I can remember those) but I have recollection of the inside of every house I ever visited. Details. Drapery fabrics and colors. The layout of their floorplans.

Here, in case you feel like I do, is the inside of my secret treasure closet: Where The Stamps Are!!!!

Lol you sound so much like me...I LOVE being able to see what treasures people have in their homes and be able to admire them!! Wow you sure have a terrific rubber stamp collection...I have a few but nothing like that! I collect bear beanie babies and they're in my computer room, filling up two walls...I had posted pictures of them in one of my past posts:-) I also collect bears, autographed celebrity photos and snowglobes...gonna need another house just to store my collections! HA!

A girl after my own heart! Love your stamp room! I have a corner in my living room devoted to my various craft stashes and addictions of paper and embellishments. You have a delightful blog! Yes! We should pass on our mothers and grandmother's stories and talents and wisdom to our daughters! Couldn't agree more!!!

WOW!! That is some collection of stamps you have there!

I'm a bit nosy myself, and love to peek into other people's lives - hence my love of blogging LOL

Hope you are having a wonderful week...

I have many stamps, about 25 and I thought that was a lot. You are lucky to have the room to store all of them. I am just like you about checking put a persons home. I would love to see all of her china, tea cups, vintage family pictures and quilts.

Hello Miss Pink,

You might enjoy my friend Dina's stamping blog. She's ever so much more creative than me! I like reading it, and I'm not even a stamper.
