Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Cute salad plates, Walmart, melamine...great for summer, $2.00 each.

We use this size a lot it's perfect for a sandwich, toast, dessert, or snack. And since I don't have enough dishes, I bought twelve.

Adorable! I think I need to go shopping at Walmart. How nice to have 12! Have a beautiful day!

Darling. I just received a "free" melamine advertisement from Victorian Trading. Only have to spend $70 to receive a place setting for four, but might just be worth it, as they're gorgeous. I expect to be invited over for cake.
