This is the sweet little mug I bought for myself last Valentine's Day. I've spent many mornings with this little guy nestled on my lap. I love his quirky face and funny shape. He sits on my kitchen table this morning. The table was actually my parent's kitchen table. I have eaten many meals on this table. It's currently covered with the most amazing tablecloth. Not only do I love the color but we have literally spilled red food coloring on this thing and it wipes off. When I realized its magical powers, I quickly headed back to the store I purchased it from. I was hoping for the same pattern because I love it so, but they were gone. I ended up with a similar one-- it's just not the same, though. I tried. And you better believe everytime I go to back to that store I head right to tablecloth aisle. Sigh.
Today is my birthday. My daughter tidied up the kitchen and made this center piece with a pineapple surrounded by pears in a really cool basket my mother-in-law gave me. And the silly sunflower saucer sneaking in on the left side I believe was a Goodwill find.
