I couldn't resist buying myself some new block-print napkins.....
I saw these napkins in their most recent catalog and I was enamored of them. When I saw them in person, I just had to have them!! There was no stopping myself from buying them. I also had to have the snail napkin rings. Aren't they so adorable?
I bought six of the snail napkin rings; they are painted metal and quite heavy. I have a "thing" for snails. I could just picture them on a spring or summer table.
The colors and the patterns of the napkins are so lovely. I like that the set is similar in color and motif, but all of the napkins are different.
They are going to look so nice with my green dishes and also my plain off-white everyday dishes. They will probably even look nice with my blue and white transferware!
Oh my gosh............isn't that the cutest thing? Did I mention that I puffy heart snails?
Here's all six of them in a snail conga line.......... :-)
I have a stone snail in my garden outside, but right now he's sort of buried in the snow. I'm always on the look out for more snails for my gardens. I just think they are the cutest. Other favorite garden-like motifs of mine are bees, birds and nests.
I also wanted to show these pretty crystal icicle ornaments I bought a couple of weeks ago for next Christmas; 75% off!
They are quite heavy actually, but so pretty.
They look like they are dusted with snow! There was only five left of them, so I bought the last five they had. The store is a local shop that sells unique clothing, jewelry, home decor items and also lots of silk flowers, faux greenery and supplies for crafting arrangements, bouquets, wreaths, topiaries etc. They have fun workshops there too and at Christmas they have dozens of beautifully decorated Christmas trees.
I also bought a pack of silver icicle ornaments; there were 40 in the box.
Thanks for stopping by!
I will be joining a new blog party, Feathered Nest Friday, hosted by Courtney at French Country Cottage!
