Two Things I Love Around My Home

Kassi at Bacwoods Fern features two things around her home that she loves and invites her readers to play along.
I love seeing the things she and her readers love about their homes so I thought I'd show you some of the things that make our house a home.

The first thing is actually pretty new to our house. My parents gave me this vase for Christmas. My mom found it at an art gallery in our town. I love the bright pop of color.

The first is the coffee table that my grandpa made me. My grandfather is incredibly talented and luckily we receive handmade gifts for birthdays and Christmas. A couple of years ago I told my grandpa I wanted a coffee table.

Knowing my love for books, he designed this after the cover of an art deco book.

Our coffee table is definitely one of the first things people know when they enter our house.
If you'd like to play along hop on over to Bacwoods Fern and hook up to the MckLinky, but be sure to leave a comment so I can see your favorites!

Do you have things around your home that you absolutely love?

Coolest coffee table ever. We just bought a condo and I've been hunting coffee tables all week! That's by far the best one I've seen.
