I have never quite liked this wall and change what is on it often. After going to a new friends home and seeing her shelf I knew it would be perfect for this area.
The wall is a off the kitchen and leads to the bathroom.
It is a perfect area to put all my collections.
I just love it and it took me all of 5 minutes to get it filled up!
Here is a picture of my favorite shelf. My husband built for me years ago.
I tend to move things often or repaint them but this has stayed the same since day one.
I read on Linda's blog where she picked items to describe herself. She ended it with "what would you be?" so here are my answers.

If I were a scent I would be clove, to remind you of home baked love.
If I were a pair of shoes I would be sneakers, comfortable but able to climb any hill.
If I were the weather I would be a crisp fall day
If I were a facial expression I would be a smile to welcome all friends new or old.

If I were a sound I would be the wind, able to send sweet whispers as well as loud howls.
