Picture Perfect.

Perhaps in an attempt to completely negate any effects from the walk I had earlier in the day, I decided to eat the one of the goodies Dillon had surprised me with for Valentine's Day.  It was largest Russian Tea Cake I'd ever seen.  I had my very own Mad Hatter's Tea Party!  Which also happens to be the theme for my dream kitchen.  I can't wait to be able to hang my huge wall hanging in there!
My house normally doesn't look so quaint (and may not again for a long time) so I couldn't resist snapping a picture or two.

I also took the opportunity to get a few shots of the vintage hankies I'm adding to my shop.

This one is my favorite one.  I just love the embroidery, whoever made it was so precise.  It looks so good in fact, it's had to tell which side is the back.  That's how neat the stitches are.

Thanks for looking and have a great evening!

What a lovely tea set! And that embroidered hankie is amazing. Nice shots.

Thanks Sam, the tea set was a parting gift from a lady at my old work. It had been in a shop near ours and I had been wanting it. My friend Shana, who was the assistant manager at my work, got it for me when I was laid off. Apparently she felt bad about having to let me go.... stupid economy!

that one and a few other vintage ones will be going in my shop today. and I'm also going to embroider some new ones I picked up with snarky statements.
