“Wednesday Wee Ones”

I have had the MOST fun finding treasures lately. I’ve gone to a few different shops and that has helped.

I bought this little serving tray that will be fun to decorate with in my kitchen. The tray is just a about the size of a saucer.


The critters will have to find somewhere else to play. I think Christmas candies would look beautiful on the tray.


I also found these 2 bowls…and I love dishes with roses.

DSCN2645 They are made in the USA which makes me happy, too!

DSCN2647 And I can’t have ‘wee ones’ without some pretty dolls.

DSCN2648 These girls have already been in the spotlight but I put this cute little winter time bear with them today.

Enjoy your day! Take time to PLAY and find a few treasures along the way!

Yours look to be in excellent condition.

I wanted to thank you for inspiring me with your new exercise side bar...Henry and I have been walking and really enjoying all we see outside. It sounds silly but it's like I forgot how pretty it is out. Usually I run on the eliptical when he sleeps. I get stuck in thank you for inspiring me!

Hi Diane,

I love all the pretty things you have bought, especially the bowls with the roses.
Your dollies look pretty with the pink ribbons.

The tray is very pretty, I used it to keep cakes..during festivals. Now your post gives me a good idea, rather than keep them in shelves..I can think of a few ways to keep stuff on it :) Those dolls are so beautiful :)

Hi, Diane! Oh those little Christmas critters are so cute! They look a lot like the animals on the vintage cards I have from the 50s! ♥

I can only imagine eating out of those flowerful pretty bowls, only to find such sweetness at the very bottom when you're almost done!

Darling treasures, great advice! Your dolly babies here are SO precious.
Further down you asked about picture groupings on the wall. I once read (and have used the idea) that you can use construction paper, cut to the size of desired pictures, to place all over the wall before actually putting nail holes in the wall. That way, you can play with all sorts of groupings to get the feel you want. Hope that helps. : )

The wee little bear is my all time favorite. Thank you for the reminder to play, my work has me exhausted and I needed the reminder tonight. Blessings before bed, Jacqueline

Its funny that you have all the
Christmas images on your blog today. I have spent most of the day looking for old fashion Chirstmases on several different sites. Good minds think alike. this is my most favorite time of year. The mood, music, decorations, food, and life in general.
