Every Friday I will be sharing five of my favorite things!!! Why??? Because it puts a smile on my face! This week I will be Featuring Five of my Favorite Flea market Finds!!!! Really I just wanted to see how many F words I could use in a sentence!!!! 🙂

Dainty floral plates, perfect for a tea party
