Would you like a cup of tea?

I just wanted to show you one of my new favorite things in my little house! I had been obsessing about the adorable little breakfast table in Kim's Green Victorian. When I had the chance to ask her where she found it, she said that she had an extra that I could purchase! Isn't it wonderful? Our favorite thing about it is the teeny tiny teabag!
She also sent me this beautiful rose pillow as a surprise-- she's such a sweetie! Thanks again, Kim! I love it!

I just had to show you this little trunk they're sitting on-- do you like it? I just fixed it up the other day. The color and carvings didn't suit my style, so I used wood putty to cover the carvings, sanded, and added the german dresden to the front prior to painting it. It fits my style much better now!

This is a close-up of the dresden applique. I had to alter it a tiny bit to get the proportions right. Oh, and if you are looking for the world's best dresden source, you've got to check out Castle in the Air in Berkley. If you get a chance to visit their store, do it! It's... absolutely majical!

Thanks for dropping in to my blog. Julie and David would love to come over for tea. It looks so inviting. You need a friend like Julie's cousin Kate to come over and help.
