Hello Friends! I wanted to share one of my motto prints with you. I needed to take this one out of the frame to clean the glass and decided to scan the image so that you could enjoy it, too. Gotta love those steep roofed cottages!





For awhile now I have been on the lookout for a toy stove. I just couldn't find one that was 'The One'. When I layed eyes on this pretty little blue one, I knew this was It!



My favorite color is blue so this little sweetheart was the prettiest one I thought I'd ever seen. It looks really cute in my kitchen. The lighting isn't very good to take it's picture there though.




You may remember the little children's laundry vignette I have. I couldn't resist this adorable little doll dress to go with it.




Speaking of blue being my favorite color, this little kitty planter flew off the shelf at an antique store and begged to go home with me. I complied.





Of course anything for the kitchen that is blue appeals to me, too.





Pretty blue flowers in an old granite vase.







This cute Little Red Riding Hood puzzle features a Tasha Tudor illustration and is from 1961.




Since we're on the subject of favorite colors, I decided to come clean with you. This has been my favorite hair color since 1997.




" And I'll see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors and that's why I love you

So don't be afraid to let them show

Your true colors, true colors are shining through."


Thank you for stopping by to visit this week. I appreciate each and every one of you and for the friendship that we share.


Wishing you much happiness! Twyla

Wow Twyla...your having a real blue day today...colourwise that is. Just don't let it go to your head!! LOL!! Sorry couldn't resist that one after seeing the Clairol.

I love that first illustration, I think it's beautiful, it reminds me of the ladies my mum used to embroider on cushions when I was a child.

Have a wonderful week.
Hugs,
Sandi

Oh my goodness, Twyla! That kitty is so cute! I wouldn't have been able to resist! You really got some good treasures, Twyla! I want a toy stove, too. I'm thinking white and Red to match my kitchen and it would sit on my wood cook stove. I want a cake carrier, too but I'm thinking pink. ☺

Bobby and I were watching Bewitched yesterday (I know) and the neighbor ladies brought Samantha a cake in a pink cake carrier! I was like, "Look, look, look!" and Bobby just smiles. ☺ I just love looking at all the home decor and fashion on that old show! Plus I think Elizabeth Montgomery is adorable. She looks sooo young to me now. ☺

Clairol won't touch my Grey. I have to use Loreal. Don't you ever change colors? I use a different one every month! ☺

We're having wonderfully windy weather that is chasing the humidity away! Hurray! Have a Grrrrrreat Tuesday, Twyla! ♥

Hi Twyla...That tiny dress is adorable and displayed with a pattern is very clever. What a neat idea for a kitchen collection in the kitchen...and the stove...neat. Enjoyed all of your collection....Sue

Hi Twyla! ALL these blues are beautiful, but I especially LOVE the stove! I have my little Suzie Homemaker stove, from when I was a little girl, in a special spot in my kitchen too!... LOVE the Tasha Tudor puzzle, that sweet little dolly dress! ~tina

Shelley said...

Hello Twyla,thank you so much for sharing your wonderful little stove and other great finds. I too am on the look out for that perfect little stove. Someday I will cross that path. I would love to see more of your kitchen and the Children's laundry vignette you spoke of.
My little Jaxon has arrived. I am charging my camera batteries so I can share him with all of you.

Blessings

Oh, we always love the same things! I saw a little toy stove this past weekend and the man said it still worked! But it was too much! I'll have to keep my eye on it though! The blue is the prettiest! What a fun post this morning! Happy Tuesday!

Twyla, you crack me up :) True colors, indeed!

You brave girl, admitting that you color your hair! I have a friend who swears up and down that she doesn't color. I don't believe her!
I "accidentally" have a collection of those Mother pictures! I never meant to collect them, but I found them so cheaply, and they're so pretty that they came home with me!
I love your little stove too, especially the name! Mine makes me so happy every time I look at it, because I can remember playing with it!
Have a wonderful day!
Carol

Oh, Twyla - I love every single thing! Thanks so much for sharing the cottage scene - you already KNOW I love those. And Tasha Tudor is my favorite artist and author. There's only one thing where our "taste" differs- and that's the choice of hair color!(Tee hee!)

You have a way of finding the sweetest things on your antique shop outings. I'm so glad you share them with us. I have a little toy stove that is one of my favorite things to play with in my kitchen. Yours is absolutely adorable & blue!! I have never seen one in blue, but you know if I did I would have had to buy it. I know you will have a lot of fun with it.

Oh, goodness I love allthe goodies. I've been looking for years for a little stove too...why? I have no idea! I have a line full of doll dresses too I'll be showing in October. Your charming finds made my day. May tomorrow be peaceful and productive for you!

Hi Twyla ...

As always, it's a pleasure to visit 'n read your Tuesday posts ... So many pretty treasures to see this time ... the doll dress is precious, and that awesome blue stove reminded me of my Easy Bake Oven, which was aqua ... The motto print is beautiful, and I wish I lived in that pink-roofed cottage ~ sighs ~ ... You know I'm totally smitten with the kitty planter ♥ she is simply adorable!!

Although I'm a proclaimed "Pink" girl, I've got quite a fondness for blue as well ... especially "Forget-Me-Not" blue ... that's one of the reasons why I use the forget-me-not flower for my avatar ...

Thank you for sharing with us, and I sure do hope you're doing well 'n having a great week ...

~ hugs ~

Hi Twyla
The toy stove is adorable. A few years ago my Mom bought something similar that was a miniature washing machine and Jessica loved to play with it because it really worked!
