Hives

24 comments
Periodically I change my little entryway set-up for seasons and times. Recently I went with a Hive theme. I have such great bee and hive related items. It makes me happy to see some of them out for display. I have quite a collection and below are just a few of my items.
This is how it looks today when you come in my front door.

My in-laws gave me the hive with the drink spout. That will be fun to use. They also gave me the hive canister jars. I put candy in them and now Allison discovered where the candy is kept.
I have the bee cake saver, bee plates and bee vase out, too. You can't see the plates too well in this photo but they are definitely bee and hive related.
I really love this quilt. And I'm going to remake it. I have some bee fabric I'm dying to use.I even changed the quilt hanging on my sewing room wall this weekend. All things Hive!

Nanette, you do the sweetest settings with all the special pieces. Your entryway is so warm and welcoming! And the quilts are just the cutest!

Oh gosh Nanette, it's so very cute! I'm such a simple "designer" of the house thing but envy those like you that have that little touch.
The hives are marvelous!

Oh, wow! Love your hive quilt, Nanette. It's gorgeous! Emma'a first happy bee-day is going to be all about bees. And hives. My friend, Cilla, gave me the beehive cupcake pan for Christmas. With that and your inspiration, I'm all set for September. :)

I have a space where I change my quilts too. It makes me happy to see them at different times of the year.
Love yours.

I too am a bee collector. My name, Deborah, means Bee or busy as a bee in Hebrew. My best bee things came from Dresden, Ohio. The town hosts the Longaberger Basket Bee every summer. My favorite bee is a large letter B painted like a bee. It's a B that's a bee. Love that quilt. I need me one of those!

Your hives are the Bee's Knees as my gram would say. I look at that covered cake stand overtime I go to Deseret Books. I just love it. If it was in red, it would find a way home with me for sure. Carline
