SHOW US YOUR LIFE - Collections

I'm a day late but I meant to post this yesterday for Kelly's Korner "Show Us Your Life - Collections".  I've always collected random stuff but ever since college I've been collecting crosses and fleur de lis.  One of the symbols for my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma was the fleur de lis so I had plenty of it!  

I have random fleur de lis and crosses all over our house.
My sister-in-law made these bath salts for me for Christmas and put them in the prettiest containers.

This is in our master bedroom, it's rustic looking, I like it.

Austin got this for me at his aunt's shop, Jan's Perfect Presents in Waco

My mother-in-law gave me this for Christmas.  I love it!  It's big and has fleur de lis on it.  :)

And for the grand finale, here is my "cross wall"!  This is the hallway outside of the guest bedrooms.  I love it.  Almost all of these crosses were a gift to me over the past 10 years.  I write the date I got them and from who on the back so I can remember. :)  I don't really know why, I just do.  I like thinking about where they came from, I have a few from Hawaii, Mexico & Alaska.

You can see a little better in this picture.  They are all so different which I love!  It's a really hard wall to get a good picture of by the way so sorry for the angles.


Well, there you have it, my collections!  My next post is going to be a long one, all about the Houston Rodeo Cook-off!  Have a great weekend!
