A few of my favorite things. . .

Stacks of dainty tea cups and a spring basket filled with eggs and flowers...
Decorating my home with tea pots and creamers and sugars and lacy doilies...

A good cup of hot coffee and something gooey to go with it like a hot cinnamon roll...



Roses and handpainted china...



My white hutch filled with whimsical notions...




And, of course, bunnies...





Vintage images...this one is by my favorite illustrator, Eloise Wilkin...
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, dear friends, celebrated with family and friends.
