{twenty sixteen} happy friday!

wow. it’s been a while.

i am not sure why the big break. i really have a lot i want to blog about, but i just haven’t made the time to be here.

and, then it is hard to just jump right back into it. i feel like, “where did i leave off? what do i write about now? is anybody even going to read this anymore?”

at any rate, i thought i would just jump right in with some random because that’s a good place to start, right?

my newest collection obsession…
{a beautiful mess} Elsie's Rainbow Glassware Collection

this is the beginnings of elsie’s collection over at a beautiful mess. isn’t it…beautiful?

i don’t have a spot to display that many glasses, but we are hoping to add some open shelving in our kitchen and i would like to display (and actually use) a small collection there along with our fiesta ware.

this is the beginning of my collection…
