Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.....

Kudos to Cindy at My Romantic Home who thought of sharing everyone's favorite things.
Here is mine...



...dancing bear candlesticks from the Victorian Trading Company. I purchased them just before my husband and I were married. They are based on the famous painting by William Holbrook Beard who was known for his caricatures and for humorously anthropomorphized animals. The bears are so whimsical and remind me not to take life too seriously. Thanks again to Cindy!

I love your dancing bears! Isn't there also a lullaby by that name? An older friend of mine use to always hum it. :o)

Hi, Mo - Thanks for visiting my blog. I love yours. It's very pretty and expressive. I also love your dancing bears. I used to have Victorian Greetings(part of Victoria Trading) when I had my store. They were a wonderful company to deal with. Diane at Pinecones & Roses
