Come On A My House...

...I'll give you candy! Well, actually I don't have any candy, but I do have some peanut butter cookies! I'm so glad you've popped back in for a visit. Sit down and we'll have a nice little chat.

If you know me very well, you know I kinda love the roosters. They're so silly and cute! But roosters can be elegant, too ~ see these pretty little dishes? Too bad all I have of this design are the dessert plates.
Would you like a glass of peach tea? That's about all Mr. Precious and I drink with our meals. Those pink depression glasses are very old and even have a few bubbles in the glass.

Now look at this cute little sugar scuttle. I had never seen one of these, or if I had, didn't know what it was until I saw my friend, Susan (MoonlightandMagnolias at Rate My Space) had one. You must go visit her. She has the most beautiful dishes and really knows how to set up vignettes. Well, I was out junk shopping and saw this one and just knew I had to have it! So here it is in all it's little silver glory ~ minus the sugar scoop. I just put in one of my little spoons.


Would you like another peanut butter cookie?

How about a little more ice in your peach tea? Do you like how I'm using the little crystal candy dish? It's just perfect for a few cubes of ice, don't cha think?


Don't you just love cookie parties?

Yes, my little Chloe Dawn, you may have a puppy cookie, too!


Now I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
