Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

The Vintage Rose Fabric Covered Drawers For Pearls and Lace Thursday 144

Sometimes it just happens.  The PERFECT item pops up in front of my eyes from Etsy and I hit the button to place it in my shopping cart before I even read the item description.  And then my heart starts to pound a bit faster and I wonder if I dare.  You know that feeling.  Just go ahead and press the button to purchase without looking back!!
But I always look back.  Just in case I missed something about the item that would be a deal breaker.
And after looking at the description, and the other pictures, it just makes it so much better to KNOW that I'm getting an item that is wonderful!!
Thank you so much Sofia!!!


If you have seen my craft room or any of my posts for that matter, you know how much I love and adore faded and tattered fabric covered boxes.  So this little beauty is a perfect addition.



Oh look how much it has been loved over the years!!


 And let me tell you something about the Etsy shop owner, Sofia...
She also makes these GORGEOUS paper flowers, and when I opened my box from her
 it was filled with pink paper tissue flowers!!  How sweet is that??
But this one special flower with the printed pink paper was
 tucked sweetly in the bottom drawer of my new purchase:



Next month is a special month for me.  I have a milestone birthday approaching and I have a huge area in my craft room set up with LOTS of pink and cream lovelies...not ALL of my collection of laces and pearls and pinks and creams, but a good bit of it!  I am in the process of taking LOTS of photos to share with you and I would like to give you just a taste of what is in store:


A recent find, and it's gorgeous!  In fact, just dripping with lace loveliness, don't you think?
If you have a chance to look at Etsy and you'd like to find my new friend Sofia and her lovely shop, you can find her HERE.  Not only did a find a lovely shop, 
I found a sister in the Lord who shares my love for beautiful things.


I'd like to change the way I host this month's party and ask you to do something a bit different.  Instead of taking time to add your blog post to a party link here, would you take some time and open your Bible and read it?  I have drastically reduced the time that I spend blogging and have instead picked up my Bible more to read what God has to say.  He truly blesses me every day when I put HIM first.
May you each be blessed by Him.
Doni

Hello Doni. so glad to see your beautiful post. I just had my 50th Birthday on the 6th of December. What day is your birthday? Your lace is beautiful and the box with draws is so very sweet. Love the paper flowers. Thank you for such a beautiful post and for sharing. Hugs, Beverly

Hmm, yes, good one Doni! It's easy to get distracted isn't it. Love that beautiful box by the way! And so sweet of Sofia to give you some beautiful flowers too. Hugs and happy day to you

What a lovely post in photos and in thoughts.

I look forward to starting out every morning reading from my Bible. I also talk to Jesus throughout my days and nights just as if He were physically here with me. He has been my strength this first year since my dear husband of 43 years went to be with Him.

Your threads, your colors, all that you create, inspire me.

May you have a wonderful Christmas ~ FlowerLady

Lovely!! May your Christmas be blessed for we know the glory that is His. Love your laces and creamy goodness with the pink. I do enjoy your linking parties but love the fact of time for reading the bible.

It's all lovely, Doni. I try to start and end the day with praying, but I have to confess that I am not a regular reader of the Bible. What version do you feel comfortable with? Have a wonderful Christmas!

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

Oh Doni...isn't it wonderful how much better our days go after we spend time with HIM? Any day that I choose to start without HIM always goes "south" so to speak. I do hope that some of the ladies will take your encouragement to heart, if it is indeed needed.

May you and your have a most blessed and joyous Christmas. [hugs]

Marilyn said...

Your idea to spend more time with the Word is a good one. I should be trying much harder and will make a serious effort to do so, thanks to your idea. Merry Christmas.♥♫

Doni,
That is one of the things I will be blogging about next year...I know that the balance I seek and have talked about in some of my blogging only comes from putting Him first each day. So, I gladly will take your suggestion, and I will be sharing my feelings about that more next year!
Hugs and Christmas Love (Christ Love)

Hi dear Doni,

The box is so beautiful. Love the paper roses too.
All your colors and fabric.

What a great suggestion... to read our Bible !!
We can't do without that and our walk with the Lord.

Will email you...

Have a wonderful Christmas Time,
you and your family.

Hugs and Blessings,

Doni, love your blog, studio, and offerings of beauty. I could live in your studio,lol. Could I ask what the crystal objects in the blue and yellow cut glass dishes? They look quite interesting. Are you a crazy quilter? If not, you would be a perfect candidate.
Blessings,
Pat

Hello Donni
What a divine set of fabric boxed drawers and they came so generously filled with pink paper flowers from sweet Sofia - how nice is that!
You are truly blessed in all the things you desire and everything looks so exquisite!

Hi Dori,

I adore all your tattered treasures of pink and cream lovelies, they are my favorite colors also.
Thank you for all the feminine and dreamy delights and I will be looking forward to all the new photos when you have an opportunity to post,
I hope you have the best birthday ever!

I searched Pinterest for pearls and lace and found you. Not by accident, by design!
I am working with a small group of women to plan a spring retreat, looking for inspiration to make it a deep spiritual time surrounded by beauty!! Your blog is full of beauty and inspiration. May your time in the Word be richly blessed.
