Okay, another on the fly (so to speak) My World this Week. But if I waited for perfect circumstances, there would be no blog! ;)
I didn't think I would find this book all that interesting until I picked it up at a bookstore and perused it. Gosh have I ever been so wrong! The Nester gives wonderful advice about decorating your home creatively and on a budget.
So when the Kindle version was on sale for two dollars and change last week, I bought it to read on the iPad. Honestly, it is one of the best books about decorating your home that I have ever read. Further info... here.*
The nice thing about collecting brown transferware instead of just one pattern is that it mixes and matches beautifully.
Along with my own thrifting finds and purchases, I have received brown transferware from Kristi and Manuela and I think of both of them when I use it!

Most is brown transferware with just a few other obvious exceptions. The flash really distorts the color but when you live in a forest and your china cabinet is in a dark corner...
Isn't this pretty? I found it for just a few dollars at Goodwill and you can bet it went in my cart immediately.
It is in good shape but since it is quite old, I will use it for display and not for serving tea. I have a few sturdier teapots for that use.
Trying to Work
I was going to sit down and work awhile but this is what I found.
I was sorting through cards (many of which you all sent me) to put them into one large box when I looked up and found someone had made herself at home in the lid of one of the boxes!
She was not happy when I finish sorting and made her give up her bed.
