I had so much fun preparing for this little tea get-together! I finally had the opportunity to set the table with some of my vintage Spode china and my candlewick creamer & sugar. I must admit, I felt like a little girl playing tea party. I even told Lisa that I felt like Anne of Green Gables preparing to have tea with her kindred spirit friend, Diana! (Those of you who have read the book, remember how excited Anne was?!) I experimented with a fun variety of finger sandwich combinations, and Lisa baked those wonderfully yummy apple spice scones. There were warm crumpets, and various sweets too. (Well, yeah-- of course! Gotta' have some sweets!)

My friend Kelee, from the inspiring blog, The Katillac Shack is hosting a Magnificent Miracle Party this weekend. Kelee has collaborated with Guidepost to do a room makeover for a wonderful woman named Colette. Colette is fighting breast cancer, and has been in need of a peaceful, healing space to uplift her during her healing process.
Kelee (and her design angels) have created a beautiful, healing, peaceful bedroom for her. Please visit Kelee's blog to learn more about Colette and view the inspiring reveal video. For each comment left there, $1 will be donated for the next makeover for someone in need.
PS: The angel in the photo above floats above my bed under a glittery white paper moon...

Susanna is an incredibly talented miniaturist-- she has created everything you can imagine, from sculpted polymer clay soaps and realistic food to intricate plants and trees. She has an Etsy store, appropriately named Little Bits of Goodness. Please stop by and visit her fun blog and store to see her fabulous creations. Be prepared to be inspired!
I have long wanted to own one of her wonderful creations but oh, the decisions! (So much great stuff!) So one day, she posted about something that I knew I had to have. Decision easily made, right then, right there.
Okay, do you want to see what I ordered? I bet you do!
((Squeeeel!!)) Okay, doesn't this beautiful butterfly jar and net just take your breath away?! When she first posted it, I became totally obsessed. Must. Have. This. Magical. Pure magic. How does she get those butterflies to "float"?!! it's like she took a full size, real butterfly jar and sprinkled pixie dust... and poof! They're teensy tiny! I'm so in love with this, I don't even have words... And then, as if I wasn't in heaven already, there was more in the envelope....
