I'd love to put this beautiful Jane Austen figurine on my writing desk or mantel for inspiration. This china figurine was made by Rockingham in England.

I wanted to show you these darling meal sets based on Disney's "It's a Small World" ride and characters. Each meal set is comprised of a bowl, plate and cup. They're dishwasher safe, but perhaps not microwave safe.
The line also includes an American Boy set, placemats and pencil tubes.
Search eBay for more Small World meal sets for kids!
Living alone like I do, it's hard to eat up a whole loaf of bread in a week or so, before the bread becomes stale. I've been wondering if I should commit some counter space to a bread bin to help keep my bread fresh.
These retro styled bins are so cute, they're definitely tempting me!
I'm not interested in the boring ivory one, but I'm going to have a hard time choosing between the red and the blue, as my kitchen has pots and pans and kettles in both colors!

This Cape Cod birdhouse is so cute! I wish my real life house looked like this! It also reminds me of a little dollhouse I had when I was a young girl, though I suppose mine was more Colonial style.

I love this concept! Here's a bento box shaped like a book!
The book opens up to reveal two separated compartments for your lunch.
Wouldn't this make a great gift for your librarian or bookstore employee friend?
The box comes in several different designs. My favorites are the Peony Red and Peony Black.
These book shaped bento boxes are microwavable, too!
I serve a lot of hot tea in my house. I'm very tempted by these attractive electric kettles, but can't seem to choose between them!

These are too darling! I am screaming! I can't even think of a legitimate excuse to buy one of these house-shaped bento boxes since I work at home and don't need to carry a lunch box. Maybe I can show up at a spring picnic with one of these though, hrm!
The house-shaped bento boxes are microwavable (except for the roofs).
This bento box is shaped like a little cabin. I love that it shows smoke coming out of the top of a chimney!
