Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (or not)

Since I have spent the past six months letting you get to know me and my convictions, I thought it might be fun to let you into my home as well.  There should be no secrets among friends, right?
 
 This is my vanity area in the bathroom.  The  flowered boxes are my facial products and makeup and the coffee cup says, "I'll have a cafe mocha vodka Xanax latte to go please," and contains my makeup brushes.
 This is my bathroom wall.  My portrait by Val Doty of The Tiny Hobo is on the upper right and the heartshaped mirror was handpainted by my Mama when I was a little girl.
 This is my paisley shower curtain.
 This is my wedding collage.
 I found this wooden hat box at an estate sale for $5!
 My grammy painted this cup for me in 1981 for Valentine's Day.  Every year she would send me a lovely little present for all the major holidays and it made me look so forward to checking the mail.
 This is one of my bedroom walls.  The top is a drawing done by Aubrey at Lady at Large and the bottom is from "The Prophet on Marriage" by Kahlil Gibran.
 This is my wine rack (which isn't used for wine).  It has a wedding picture, some candles, scrapbooks, etc.
 This is a hand painted tea pot by YOURS TRULY! I painted it at one of those pottery painting shops.  When I lived in the big city I used to spend quite a bit of time there.
 It's all about the details! :-)
 
Last but certainly not least, this is my bookcase.  It's very disorganized because it definitely gets used!  Can you spot any good ones?
