This morning I wanted to share a few items I've found while out shopping.  A couple weeks ago my friend, Jane and I went  to Juliette to have lunch at the Whistle Stop Cafe.  I found this cute spoon rest in a shop there.  I can't believe this is the only thing I bought.

Here is Jane in the cafe, she would only let me take her picture from afar.  If you remember a few weeks ago I posted about my  trip to Juliette with my hubby, the cafe was about to close so we didn't get to eat there, and when I told Jane about our visited she wanted us to go. 

Whistle Stop Cafe

This is my plate.  I love sweet potato fries and grill chicken sandwiches.  

Friday Jane came to visit me and we went shopping in my town where there are several local antique and consignment shops.  We had a walk in the park in town and then on to shopping. I found this hatbox at one of the stores and was so surprised at the price, only $2.99.

I love hatboxes.  I am using this one to store some of my mini tea sets.  

Jane just had to buy me this plate when I was admiring it.  She said that I could remember her by it, she is such a generous and good friend, I told her I didn't need anything  for me to remember her by.  When I got home with it I noticed I had a teacup and a vase, (that seems to me), that the rose pattern  matched. This morning I made myself a cup of Earl Gray tea with cinnamon raisin toast for breakfast.  

I love the  edges of the plate and vase. I had the ribbon on the vase but I think I like it better without it.
