cast iron {for coming back to life after the kitchen sink leaked all over you}.

2. this tea strainer.
tea strainer {just a few dollars at a local shop and just right for mugs or tea pot}.

3. this sister.

4. this cradle.
cradle {and the tiny guy who sleeps inside of it}.

    Really simple and beautiful. I love the cradle.

    What type of cast iron skillet do you have?

      It's a new Lodge. They're really affordable though I have to admit that I'm on the lookout for a vintage one to swap it for…the old ones are smooth on the inside and expertly seasoned!

    Yes, tea strainers! I've been using mine for rooibos candied almond.

    Sweet divine paperwhites. And i love the tea strainer. Those are must haves. The cradle. Just a huge smile, no words. šŸ˜€

    The look on your sister's face is pure joy, which is wonderful. I like that tea strainer. I think other things for tea, like mugs and teapots, are cool too. I just wish I liked tea. šŸ™‚

      Hot cocoa in a tea pot? I think that'd be just right.

    Oh I wonder if we'll ever get to see baby boy! That photo of your sister is adorable šŸ™‚

      Aw! Not sure it's gonna be anytime too soon. Mama Bear's not a blogger, so she's a little less free with the photos than we might be! Rest assured, he's the cutest little thing you've (n)ever seen šŸ˜‰
