The Spring Giveaway Continues!! Don't forget to join me and enter for all of the chances to win!
I am still adding new items, and this week I will add a rope of pearls! (faux of course...)
Link up with this Party as one way of joining the Giveaway, and read HERE for the original post to see all the other ways to enter. Giveaway ends May 10th. Still lots of time!
OK...Pearls and Lace. It's a Linky party, but it's become the time of the week for me when I really take the time to get the best pictures I can take of some of my favorite things.
When I begin, I usually have some idea what type of vignette I will be working on, at least a few items I want to share, and where I will be setting up.
But for this one: Well, let's just say, the sun was shining through the kitchen window and I was running around the house 'gathering' items that I wanted to share.
Here are the results!
My FAVORITE hand-painted bowl, full of pearls. LOTS of pearls!
Some of my collection of hand-painted buttons, which I am so excited about. I just wish my photography was better so that I could do them justice.
I grabbed my newest books, each of them covered with different flowers in a chintz like pattern, and with the beautiful gold embossing, they worked well with the bowl's gilding.
I don't know about you, but if I took pictures of my everyday home, you know, the couch with the walls of pictures above it, or the side tables next to the chairs with our various 'must have's' on them, it would be dull and not exciting in the least. Some of you have beautiful homes and can walk into any room of your house and snap pictures of beauty, but not me. My home is LIVED IN! The carpeting is not new nor beautiful, the place is dark, and the preference of my husband is to NOT have lace curtains in the windows...
So I revert to the vignette. And yes, I do decorate my home with these lovelies, but they look better like this!
Below is a picture of the items I started out with for the Giveaway, and more items have been added. Be sure and check out the original Pearls and Lace Party here for the rules, and then join me with your lovelies for chances to win.
May you each know the love of God first, the love of family, and the love of friends...
Sometimes we seem to forget that it's all about LOVE!!
I think I'll be joining a few linky parties!!
Have a look and join too!
