Some New Pretties

Hello everyone~ I hope you've all been enjoying this first week of springtime! I was out and about the other day and I found a few pretties that I brought home with me.

First of all, I had seen this plate earlier and I went back to find it had been marked down even more than it had been previously, so it came home with me.

Pansies just say springtime, don't they?

I already had this plain white plate and don't they look pretty together! Almost like a flower.

I had been on the lookout for some new napkins and napkin rings. I love the nubby texture as well as the sheen of these creamy coloured napkins!
The napkin rings look like jewelery.

So pretty with my china.

Well, who's this?
I found this little bunny and he asked me if he could come home with me. Well, I couldn't resist his little sweet face! I mean, who could! I couldn't resist his mate either, so they both came home with me!

Bunnies and springtime just go together, don't you think? They will spend their time playing about my home for a little while.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope your day has been filled with sunshine!

I am joining Sherry for her Home Sweet Home party -

and Courtney for Feathered Nest Friday

  17. Hello Sandi - Nice to meet you! Thank you for stopping by! I have to agree with you bunnies are the sweetest! I actually have a real one in my backyard. We have owned a rabbit since my daughter was 7. She is now 28 and I can't see myself without a rabbit. So we have one as a pet still!! LOL! Anyway... I also wanted to comment on your beautiful finds. I love purples and lavenders so those pansy plates are beautiful. The pearl napkin rings are lovely! Thank you again for dropping in! Hugs!
