I’m so excited to be hosting the second weekly “My Favorite Things Saturday”.
This week I’m sharing several new favorite things that I have recently received in the mail. If you’ve visited my blog very often, you’ve probably seen the name “Susie”. Susie is one of my “bestest” friends. We were childhood friends, and we remain very close. The other day, I received a package from Susie. No, it’s not my birthday – Susie is just that way – always doing nice things for others.
That package was so much fun to open, because it contained some of my newest favorite things. Look at this precious egg-shaped Easter plate. Isn’t that the sweetest plate ever?
The box also contained these no calorie Easter treats (it contained one of those high calorie Easter chocolates too, but it’s already gone!). You may have seen Susie’s darling felt cupcakes on her sister-in-law’s blog, Life in the Slow Lane. Now, I’m the proud owner of one of Susie's cupcake creations.
This adorable bunny was also in the box from Susie. He’s sitting in a watering can with his cabbage and his peas in a pod.
My next new favorite thing is this tassel I got from Butterfly Genes Etsy. He’s the perfect addition to my kitchen!
If you’ve visited my blog within the last week, you know I NEEDED some more Easter eggs! I ordered these two cute German paper mache eggs from 32 North blog. Right now, these are my favorites of all of my eggs!
I should be embarrassed to show you my next new favorites, but I’ve already shared enough on my blog to let y’all know I’m a little crazy (maybe a lot)! These also came in the mail. You’ve heard the saying “one man’s trash is another’s man’s treasure”. Around my house that saying is, “one man’s trash is Laurie’s treasure”. That’s embarrassing enough, but you will not believe what I’m about to tell anyone and everyone who might happen to read my blog. People in France are now sending me their trash, and worse than that, I am KEEPING their trash!
This egg carton and laundry detergent box were packing for the Quimper pottery I recently ordered. The seller had saved his empty containers, but rather than throw them away, he used them as padding for the pottery – a great re-use of his trash. I’m sure he never expected the recipient to keep his trash and display it in her food pantry and in her laundry room!! Can you believe I just told you that? I can’t!
If you are here to join “Favorite Things Saturday”, please copy and paste the link to your Favorite Things post in MckLinky below. Normally, the Favorite Things link will not be here until Friday evening. Today, I am unexpectedly going out of town, and I don’t know if I’ll return in time to get my post with MckLinky up this evening, so it is here earlier today. Thank you so much for joining today.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Please be sure to click on the links to find other’s who have posted their favorite things today. (I think I can safely promise you that nobody else is going to show you trash)! laurie
