Favorite Thing Friday

I thought I might start doing a post called Favorite Thing Friday where I'll show something around my house or maybe someone else's house or even in a store. Basically anything I see anywhere that I really like and that just makes me smile. I am always seeing things that just speak to me and make me say, "Oooooh, I love that!" So, today my favorite thing I am going to share is my collection of crosses in my living room. I have been collecting crosses for years and have quite a few. I decided to hang them all together because it I think it is interesting and makes a statement. I actually have a few more I haven't hung yet. I'm about to run out of room on this wall! I like crosses because of their meaning - that Jesus died for our sins to save us so we may have eternal life. I also just like the way they look and there are so many beautiful ones out there. My favorite store, Hobby Lobby, has the best selection and you can get them 50% off - watch the paper to see when. It's usually every couple of weeks or so. I did go buy some mums yesterday that I need to plant so I'll work on that this weekend. Hopefully I'll finish the front of my house and show it on Monday. Have an awesome weekend!!!

We have a small collection of crosses in our bedroom. Most are from Hobby Lobby:) I was just there this morning and saw that they are 1/2 off again. I just kept on walking!

Wow that is a great collection. And it looks like there's plenty of room for more. I think I'm going to hang my shoe flag on the front porch. But I don't like to decorate for halloween until I'm into Oct. a few weeks. Mimi

I love your cross wall. I have 3 on the wall at the end of my hall. Now, I see that I need about 5 times that many.LOL

Sue said...

I love crosses too. I've never thought about hanging them all together but they look so good.
