Bekah my 10 year old daughter saw some of the beautiful blogs over here, and she thought that she would put together a place setting to share. These are some of her favorites that she likes that I have in my hutch.
She decided that a hydrangea flower would look lovely on the side of these Currier and Ives plates.
With a nice touch of stripping in the napkin which brings out the pink in the flowered tea cup.
This is one of our very fancy tea cup that Bekah's Aunt gave to her... she thought it was very pleasant to the eye. Well thank you for looking at Bekah's creation... she is already planning another one.

Christopher has built a bridge out of his own body as he does his math... do I see a future in engineering?
Dallas, is a little boy that I watch during the week, and while everyone else was creating he was chooseing to build some thing in his 20 month old mind...... It was nice to see this busy little boy so content to stay still for 15 minutes
Rebekah loves to help with anything she can.... and today we decided with bake cookies... I have usually told her what spoon to use and how much...... BUT this time the fraction cramming has planted a seed in her brain.... YES!!!!
We even double the recipe and she was able to figue it out..... I was so very proud of her.
And they became the most beautiful cookies ever and a very proud little girl was smiling from ear to ear.....
