Lil' Tulips and Meet Patricia!

Something sweet about Tulips ~ a reminder that springtime is here. As a kid I had a rabbit by the name of Tulip, too. Loved her tulip shaped ears! I bought this old soap holder from T-Party and just love it!
Teeny tiny vintage metal children's dishes with all things sweet ~ little birds, tulips and windmills.
Vintage graphics are by far the most adorable. This is a wonderful piece with a fun and very Mary Engelbreit looking pattern on it.
Now did you see that really cute red and white pot holder underneath the metal dishes? My sweet friend, Patricia, mailed that to me last week. She knows I love red and white in my kitchen and just blessed me with sweet goodness! I first met Patricia several years back - well sort of met her - you see she sells the prettiest linens on eBay under the name of From The Treasure Box. Some of you may already know her, however if you don't then you will want to mosey over and give a howdy-do to her on her NEW blog - Vintage Linen Treasures. She and her husband moved back to Texas recently from Southern California. Patricia is a sweet woman who takes loving care of her wonderful family and has superb items for sale on eBay. ~~ Happy new week to all of you sweet friends! Later I will share with you who I met this weekend! Naw, not the incredibly handsome Tom Selleck (ohhowIwish) but two very wonderful blog friends!!

ta ta for now!

I love the tulips and the red.... I tried to do red in my kitchen a few years back.... nothing worked and so I headed to burgandy and dark green....
