Maybe I should rename my blog to The Lemon Cottage. I noticed the other day that I seem to have a lemon theme going on in my home. I bought the ceramic topiary above at the flea market about 5 years ago. I had a cat back then and he jumped up on the table shortly after I bought it and knocked it over and broke it. I have to make sure that the broken side is against the wall now. I couldn't bear to throw it away. It looks small in this photo but it's almost 2 feet tall! This is the tiered dish that my mom bought at Disneyland when I was little. I've always loved it so she gave it to me a couple years ago. In the summer I like to keep these fake but real looking lemons and limes in there.
And, of course there is the lemon drop jar that you've already seen.
