Winnie the Pooh

I have always loved Winnie the Pooh--as a little girl and even more now that I am a grown up girl.  I think it is because he reminds me of a simpler time--happy times as a child and friendship.  It brings back memories of lovely summer days playing in the woods across from my home with my best friend.  I have a small collection of vintage Winnie the Pooh books.  I love to look through their pages at the delightful sketches.....
Yesterday I was wondering through our local Marshals just to see what I could find.  I think I may have squealed with joy when I spotted this book.


It is filled with charming photos, sketches, and poems.  It also tells of Pooh's history and just how he and all of his friends came into being.












I had a few more errands to run and my last stop was as Target.  You know to pick up things like laundry soap, paper towels, shampoo, and cleaning products.  Never did I guess that I would find these....

Now I can't imagine that my husband or my son would like to have their dinner served on these but I sure would so I bought one of each just for me :)  My cream of wheat never tasted so good this morning as it did out of this sweet bowl. 
As I close this post for today I will leave you with one of my very favorite Pooh quotes

"Are we going to be friends forever" asked Piglet
"Even longer" Pooh answered
--A Milne

Thanks for checking in with me today my "blog friends" .  Hope your day is terrific.

What great finds for you...my Pooh-loving friend. I think it's perfectly perfect for you to have those dishes...I have my Mary Engelbreit plates. My favorite Pooh quote.
"If you live to be 100, then I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 so I never have to live without you."

Oh, how I love Pooh and friends!
I have Pooh and Tigger floor mats in my car.

Love the book, the plate AND the bowl--way too cute.

As Tigger would say--TTFN.

Come by Dreaming soon-have missed you my friend.
