Pearls and Lace Thursday #46; and Last Week for Spring Giveaway!!!

Only one more week left for the Giveaway I'm having!!!
Be sure and go to the original post here to read the directions, and you can also join by joining me for Pearls and Lace this week!
I'm adding the pillow pictured below to the Giveaway!!!  If you want to enter, be sure and follow the rules posted here...I would hate for you to think you've entered, but haven't.
This Giveaway ends May 10th, 2011 at midnight.

On to the Party!
Pearls!!  I found three sets of GORGEOUS pearls at a very special Antique shop last week.
My HUSBAND bought them for me!!!

I thought the clasps were so sweet, and I'm so excited about them.  I think they're lovely.
And, I'd like to introduce you to my newest friend, Paula.  She owns the Somewhere In Time Antiques Shop
in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  Located along the Mississippi River, right up at the Wall!!!

She told us the most amazing history of her family and the area where we were, and with all the flooding and chances that the levee would be blasted open, well, we were enthralled.  Texas might have storms and flooding, but not like the Mississippi River flooding.  And we witnessed numerous spots that were flooding all along the trip.
The picture below was taken on the east side of the bridge from Cape Girardeau into Illinois. 
Again, we were amazed.

As we headed back west into Cape Girardeau and approached the bridge over the Mississippi River, we saw the sun break forth from the clouds.
To all those affected by the flooding, to all those who have lost your homes and loved ones from the recent storms, know that God will make your way....
May His Light shine on you...

OK...last week...be sure and get your entries in.
And also, please join me for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!

Hello Doni!
Thanks for linking up to Treasure Hunt Thursday.
I need to come up with a pearl/lace post so I can link up again at your party.
I know that the folks who have experienced floods and tornadoes need prayer and appreciate it.
The one that came within a couple of miles from us was an F4.
We rode through another neighborhood that just reopened to traffic today and the devastation is just unbelievable.
