Birdhouses, Chairs, and Roosters, oh my!

I may be alone in this habit but I have noticed recently that there are many things throughout my house that are repetitive designs.What I mean is, there are some things that I can't help but to use in my decor over and over again!
 I really love birdhouses. I especially like using them inside to decorate. This is a corner shelf made from shutters, remember it from here? I decided to use it to display my birdhouses. I also have a few tiny birdhouses throughout the house. I don't know what it is about them but I love them!
Top: Flea Market, Middle: K&B Marketplace in downtown Fuquay, Bottom: Rose's (yes, they still exist!)
 I am in love with these little metal chairs. I found a set of three on Pottery Barn's site in the clearance section. They were $20 for all three. They look really small in this picture but they are actually about 6 inches tall and 3 inches wide. The first one, as you can see, is "framed" on our living room wall. In our move we accidentally busted the glass in a frame, so I used it to hang up around this little chair. The second one shown is on table in the living room holding a cute little sign. And the third is on the kitchen counter holding a tiny lamp I got from Ikea. Just like with my birdhouses, there are a few more little chairs around as well!
These are no longer on Pottery Barn's Clearance site but they have come great finds on there still! I love the "found" items!
 This one is my guilty pleasure :) It is such a cliche southern household decoration but I love these Roosters! As a disclaimer, I am a picky rooster lover and will only accept certain ones into my home :) The plates and pepper shaker are on the kitchen island and the coat hook is in our entryway!

I am sure my friends and family could point out some other things that I decorate with frequently but these are my favorites! Do you have anything that you decorate with "repetitively"? Are my obsessions over the top?!
Would love your input! Thanks for reading!


  1. That is so funny that you said that because I have been recently obsessed with birds and I don't know why! Also flowers- on my bedspread, in frames, rugs, shower curtains- you name it there are flowers on it! I don't think your obsessions are over the top- I think they are part of what makes your house a home!

  2. I too have birdhouses throughout the house not only inside but outside as well, placed on a shelf on the deck.
    Baskets are another item I have collected over the years. I don't have a window over my sink, so I secured a horizontal coat rack to the wall and have hung many of my baskets on the hooks which make them quite accessible to me. Pottery is another item I have collected over the years and have pieces throughout the house.
    I purchased a iron rooster from the Flea Market recently, he found a home hanging in my kitchen and has sparked an interest in adding more.
    Happy Decorating!
