How are all you blog party animals! No one is dancing on tables or wearing lampshades on their heads yet are they? Well, for those of you who have absolutely NO idea what I am talking about, I'll fill ya in. The fabulous Marcella over at Etsy Cottage Style Blog is hosting an all day blog party today! Sounds like great fun Eh? I think it's gonna be a blast to see what everyone puts up.
The party question Is "What makes your heart skip a beat?" For me the answer to that question is many things but coming in at number one would easily have to be (worth 50 bonus hubby points!) my sweet hubby of 10 years.
With that being said the next thing that makes my heart skip a beat would be dishes! Dishes of all shapes, sizes and styles as long as they are vintage, cottage or victorian in design. I have run out of cupboard space for all the teapots, server ware, and place settings to go. I put them in hutches, I put them is sideboards and china cabinets...Heck I even hang em on the walls! When I walk into a thrift or antique store I am instantly drawn to the dishes, they call me, beckoning to be picked up and admired. When I visit your home for the first time don't be offended if you should find me rifling through your cupboards to see "whatcha got". Platters, trays, teacups and spoon rests dance through my dreams at night weaving perfect little tapestries of hostessing skills galore! My... I think I might be drooling a little. So while I regain my composure please enjoy some of what makes my heart truly skip a beat...my dishes.
