Wood - Treen and Reality Thursday

Welcome to Ann from The Elegant Shoestring

Favorite personal collectibles? Treen. Wooden items. I've written about my favorites in previous posts here, here, here, here, here. Looking back on my older posts brought back some good memories.


Reality Thursday - a snapshot of a moment in life

Big family birthday party - blurry photos (trying to do too much at once),
cleanup after and 'command centre'

joining Mockingbird Hill Cottage for Reality Shot Thursday


  1. Now that's a great group of reality shots - a party! That's the best kind of mess to have. Thanks for joining us!


  2. Love the look of old wood, hand worn over time. Beautiful!

    I certainly can identify with doing too many things at once.
    Great photos of your big family!

  3. Joy, there is nothing like a big get together to bring a lot of reality to your life! Ann

  4. You have such a nice collection!
    It was fun to see your real life photos! Can't be all neat and tidy with a big family group. More important to enjoy everyone and have fun!

  5. Gotta love those big family parties! That's the best kind of mess.

  6. Love your party pictures! Love, Linda

  7. Big family gatherings always pass in a blur!

    I see you are from Fort Langley. Such a quaint main street. Two of our kids did a year at Trinity Western and loved going there.

    And just this summer my husband and I walked on the Island in the Fraser River - can't remember the name of the park.

  8. Love meeting everyone. Thanks for your kind comments.

  9. Your wooden vintage items look great on display!

  10. There's nothing like a party for revealing "real life", they're supposed to be messy aren't they?

  11. I just adore a party mess - as long as it's at someone's else's place, ha! ha!

    So glad you joined us for Reality Thursday - see you next time.

    P.S. Great rolling pin collection - I really need to take time to make from scratch pastry one of these days! I've so fallen down on home baking - just no time it seems.


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
