I woke up this morning to find a beautiful addition to the store! This new sofa is DARLING! They say that it just arrived from Chicago. Wherever it came from it takes my breath away. You must see it for yourself!

Please let me introduce myself

I would like to properly introduce myself. My name is Wilhelmina. I am the luckiest mouse in the whole world to be able to call Vintage Accents my home!

I was searching for the most comfortable and beautiful place to hang my pearls. I love style and design and everything fabulous! And when I discovered Vintage Accents on Woodward Avenue in Birmingham, Michigan I fell in love and moved right in!  I know this is the place for me. (Don't worry, I am sweet and tidy and stay out of the way!)
The ladies here are delightful and they are so good to me! 

I am excited to share my adventures with you as I fall in love with all of the upscale furniture, accessories and pretty displays around me! 

Please stop in the store to say hello. Maybe we can have a Tea Party together soon!
Please feel free to contact me by commenting on my blog!

 Nice to meet you,

Friendship Tea

An excellent blend to share with your friends!! My dear friend shared this spiced drink with me and it warmed me up just as she warms my heart. I am sharing this recipe with you as she travels on her new adventure to China. Her family is moving there from Michigan for 3 years. I will miss her everyday!

Friendship Tea
2 cups orange breakfast drink mix
1 cup unsweetened instant tea
1/3 cup sweetened lemonade drink mix
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Store in an airtight container.

For one serving: Pour 1 cup boiling water into a mug; stir in 1 tablespoon tea mix until dissolved.
Yield: 48 servings
