So, here are a few of my favorite things......placed in front of one of my favorite quilts. It's a family quilt, lots of names on it....so a cross-stitched LOVE ONE ANOTHER just seems to go there really well. And, that reminder never hurts anyone, does it? I've no clue who did the cross-stitch, but I made the quilt long ago. I got the cross-stitch from Sheila at the Junk House.....it really called my name....as you well know....the colors pink and green are always calling my name, so it was irresistible. It's beautifully stitched.
A recent acquistion was this pink ceramic flower vase from the 40's.........and a heart too....how could I go wrong? Love it!!! The little heart bowl I was given a few years ago....it is adorable and the little pink bowl is just dear also. They sit atop a wonderful cake plate I got from Kathy a while back......it is wonderful.........a few meadow flowers amongst roses. I love it.
This lovely green vase is a recent purchase also. From Charles, also at the Junk House. Just lovely.
And, such a sweet bird perched on it's edge.
The yellow 'flower' bowl with pink bird....oh, my, I loved it at first sight, but have had it for a while now.
One filled with perle cotton in great colors....some pink. The other filled with tiny paper roses. Tickles my fancy....just saying.

The green vase, underside.
The pink heart vase is not marked, but I found it online under McCoy.
I really need to bake a cake and show it off on that cake plate sometime soon!
And, here they all are in my tiny dining room.......all that pink and green mixed in with lots of red and part of my flag collection. I hope you enjoyed seeing this little piece of Bird Nest Cottage, with it's new colorful ceramic pieces, all the stitching and my best wishes for a
Happy Memorial Day.
And, a gentle reminder:
LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Until next time
