Tea Cup Garden

Do you ever need a little gift in a hurry...
Something that's sweet and thoughtful and not fussy?

Just take a minute and put together a Tea Cup Garden

It's so easy to pick up orphan cups, sugars, and creamers when your out at the fleas. They usually are just a few dollars, and when combined with a little green plant or posie they convey a sweet and thoughtful sentiment.

I always like to give my girlies a little something for Easter, and since they aren't fans of candy, I try to come up with something that they can enjoy beyond the moment.

I found these little pint sized creeping figs, but in a pinch you could just divide a little Swedish or English Ivy, Angel Vine, or any houseplant that you may have on hand. Grabbing a little moss from a shady outdoor spot works too. Just make sure not to over water, since there isn't any drainage. A little something living and green that will brighten any windowsill or counter.

I have this one sitting on an iron pedestal with a bunny box
on the buffet in the Dining Room.

Don't you love the logo on the plant tag?
Rabbit Shadow

Keeping a little stash of small containers
 will give you the ability to say "Thank You", "You're Special",
"Happy Birthday" or "Just Because".
An easy and thrifty way to share the love...

joining these weekly parties:

Hope you've had a wonderful weekend.

Angels Among Us

A little gift arrived in the mail a few days ago. My sweet friend Cheryl from Zany Mayd had been the winner of a necklace give away of mine last month, and just look what she sent me!

And you might say, "He's adorable, but he's a snowman!"
and I would say,
"Yes, He's a snowman, but just look at this!"

This little snowman just happens to have wings!
I think he must be a "snow angel".

Truly a sweet blessing;
just look at the details...

 I love the hat, the scarf, the little springs for arms, (and the flower bouquet). The yarn, the fringe. The spool of thread with a jewelry embellishment! I'm in love. I don't know if she knows that I collect "snow people", but this will be a treasured addition to the family!!

 Oh, and that crooked little smile!

I love this Bible verse.
It always makes me wonder...

Hebrews 13:2  Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels unawares.

Thank you Cheryl,
