My mom used to collect teapots. Everytime she would go on a trip she would come home with a new beautiful teapot or teacup. Her china cabinet always looked so pretty and colorful.

Gena said...

I loved reading about you! I have a 13-year-old daughter and a daughter who will be 9 on Friday. I didn't know we had children the same ages, either.

Thank you for sharing. I'm participating in a swap for the first time and it is really lots of fun.

Hey-your birthday is coming up here pretty quick! Happy days!

Hey-what were your thoughts on the Nancy Drew movie? I used to LOVE reading ND growing up. We don't have public TV so I haven't seen any previews. What did you think?!? Is it worth a rent?

I, also, love books about cooking, hospitality, decorating, and the like! My Granny always gives me her old decorating magazines for me to have fun with. I love getting new budget-friendly ideas on how to make our home more welcoming.

What a fun list!
