the bees knees.

if you follow me on twitter you would know that i received a package on thursday at work from my grandma. she knows i have a little thing for bees:: 


my itty bitty bee collection includes: a bee charm necklace (urban outfitters), vintage magazine cover & tea towel (flea market find), and wooden matches (gift) 
i was super excited to open my package and find this adorable tea set!
do you have something special you collect? we also have a few elephant pieces (book-ends, and the ceramic planter pictured above).

  5. How sweet of your grandma! My grandma used to send me letters and gift packages all the time when she was still alive. I miss those so much.

  12. Lovethe tea set!
    My nickname fr a newborn has been Bird, since my hair looked like a mohawk, ala Woodstock, the yellow bird fr Charlie Brown. However, my Grandmother thinks it's Tweety Bird & always gives me TB collectibles. Hmph

  13. @elle sees-- too funny-- my dad used to call me bird, but that was because i was picky with my food :)

  14. Hi from Mingle Monday. Those bees sure are cute. I don't officially collect anything, but unofficially I guess I collect lamps. Yes, I'm a bit of a lamp tramp. Like jewelry for the home...Lovely little blog you've got here, too.

  17. can your grandmother adopt me?!? she knows how to take care of you! love the bees--they're annoying in real life, but when they're captured like this, they're perfect. I find myself loving maps. And anything vintage DC. weird collections. yikes.

    hope you're bracing for that storm ;) xoxo {av}

  21. Wow! I'm in awe at your bee collection. As a Georgia Tech grad, I can certainly say that I'm very jealous. My friends and I are always looking for cute bee parafanilia!
