More Than Porcelain

I was absentmindedly  perusing Pinterest this weekend and one of the images I  came across linked back a fascinating Etsy shop, More Than Porcelain. Artist Monica redesigns vintage pieces as well as enhancing more modern items to create pieces that are  a little cheeky with a splash of whimsy, and as you all well know, I loves me some whimsy.

I wish I could buy everything embellished with Alice in Wonderland illustrations, but I am also very much in love with the “Poison” teacup. So cute, so very cute.

I have good friends

A couple of days ago, I came home to find an unexpected package sitting on my porch. A quick look at the return address let me know that it was from my college roommate Rebecca. She’s like a super woman, she is four months pregnant and in the process of moving from Florida to North Carolina, yet she still finds time to send me a surprise gift.

It was an end of tax season relaxation gift box, with a adorable kitty mug, some rich hot cocoa mix and a recipe for making tea and chocolate bark. Needless to say I was delighted, and even more amazingly it arrived after I had an exceptionally rough day at the office. It was one of those days that reminded me exactly how lucky I am.
