She's Beautiful

Isn't she beautiful? She arrived on my doorstep last week - a purchase made from Tiffany at Shabby Scraps. I've been wanting one of these pin cushion dolls for practically forever and am so thrilled to have found completely in tact.
I also found this beautiful set while perusing the antique mall on Friday. I would have loved an entire set of this cup & saucer/plate combo - wouldn't it be great to have friends over for a tea party using these? But alas, there was only one on the shelf and I grabbed it as quick as I could. Tea for one and a scone sounds good to me!

Don't forget to pop over to the Joli Paquet blog when you get a chance because Brandy has a tutorial on how to make this darling Valentine ornament.
