When An Act of Kindness Is Repaid ( & More Holiday Decor)

I did a pet portrait of Cooper for Kris from Junk Chic Cottage (last year?). Saturday I got a surprise as a thank you from her.

They are from Target and there are 12 different ones. Kris has the white ones (which are beyond cute the way she styled them. You can find them in this post ). They have little metal tags with the year on one side and their name on the other. How cute is that? They are searching for the perfect perch where they can spread happiness. They make me smile!

They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago. Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey .
