You have the most ADORABLE things on your blog! I have a bunch of your stuff in my Etsy wish list!!!

ambermarie said...

Ooh....such pretty things! This is fun :)

Halo Hill said...

Well, I love them all, but I would have to say the teabag holder. It would be good for a spoon holder. When I put sweetener in my coffee (ok, and cream), I stir it with a spoon, fold a paper napkin in half and place the wet spoon on the paper napkin ('cause I will be back for a 2nd cup). My husband thinks this looks very untidy (it actually drives him nuts). I don't see the point in dirtying 2 spoons, so this little holder would be very handy for both of us! (Does someone who rambles on and on, get another entry)? Sorry!

Hugs,
Sheila
