More Amazing Collections ***My Parent's House***

I was at my parent's house this past weekend.  They have an amazing place, everything from the 40 acres they live on outside Tallahassee, FL to the gorgeous house my dad built.  It's always a treat to visit their house.

My parent's had an antiques store for about 10 years which they closed some time back.  They have acquired some gorgeous pieces of furniture, and also some really cool collections.  Here are some of them that I took pics of when I visited:

Vintage bird cages.......

...and more vintage bird cages

Large chunks of semi precious stones and rocks.  Everything from amethyst to turquoise.

Have you ever seen a broom collection?  This one is in their mudroom.

My mom has always loved kaleidoscopes and that's what sits on top of this
very cool antique card catalog file.

A vintage clock collection that sits in one of the spare bedrooms.

Antique door knob collection.  My husband Duane made the wooden display.

My favorite: A vintage dice collection.  This one sits in one of their bathrooms (of all places haha).

This little lamp isn't part of a collection but I just had to share it.
Possibly the cutest vintage lamp I have ever seen in my life!  My mom bought it at an auction a while back.

So that completes some more on "Collections" for now.  Hope you enjoyed looking at all of them.  I'll try to get back on my blog as soon as I can.
