Love all your beautiful things...I have those same Robins Egg Blue plates above my bed (just added last week.) When I ever get my camera back, I'll post them. Love the little blue chalkboard and teh sugar bowls are lovely all together like that. You have superior taste!~

Love your sugar bowls! The different shapes are fantastic. Seeing your picture made me realize that I have somehow managed a small unintentional collection of creamer pitchers!

It was so fun enjoying pictures of your latest finds. You found some great treasures. I especially love the tin box and the silver. Oh my, that caught my eye!

I have decided I really need to slow down on my thrifting. All of a sudden I have quite a bit! ;)

Your surprise sugar bowl collection is lovely. Isn't it interesting how we can be drawn to things and not even realize it!

I did get the email and have it saved. I'm SO sorry I haven't gotten those packages out yet. I must be the slowest pay it forward person ever. It's been so crazy around here I haven't been able to get much shopping done. I promise I'll get your goodies out to you soon!
