Wonderful Things


Hello.  Happy Monday to you.  I was thinking that today could be a day of wonderful things...

Wonderful thing number one...these pretty mugs.  I won eight of them recently in a giveaway that Tracey from French Larkspur held.  I was absolutely thrilled, to say the least.  Thank you Tracey!  Not only are these little beauties perfect for hot chocolate, but they're great for flowers and photographs too.  Of course, the cup with the T is my favorite :)


I paired them with some other little wonderful things...some fluffy pink blossoms from my plum tree, a few rustic plates and some French papers that Tracey had included in her package.  I think it all goes perfectly together.



Pink, brown and cream are one of my favorite color combinations...sweet, but not too much so.  They're the colors that I have been using to redo my daughter's room.  You know, the room I talk about but never show you.  Someday soon...promise.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

Tricia ♥
