Pearls and Lace, My Favorites!

I'm Celebrating with Pink and Cream and of Course with Pearls and Lace #145

I've missed posting this month, but it has allowed me to get creative again and I have a huge mess in my craft room to prove it, but the end results are beginning to look worth it.  I will be sure and share it with you in the future.

I just now went back in to this post after I posted it and I need to apologize.  I have just noticed on my sidebar a blog post that was posted by one of the blogs I followed that was absolutely nasty.  If you saw that, I am so sorry.  I was unaware of it until this moment and it has now been deleted.

But for now I have some lovelies to share with you!

Pink and Cream again....
but it's my 50th Birthday (on the 17th) and I can't have cake, so I choose pink and cream frosting
with pearls and lace decorations!!

It was amazing that I had so much to use on hand in just these colors!
I got out all the little favorites I delight in, and displayed them all over the place!

Cascades of lovely, aged trims.  Scads of pearls of all hues.  Satin ribbons and eyelets.

And of course some sewing notions!

Sears sold lace???

Isn't this little pearl cascade adorable?
And the old silk crocheted flowers have a lovely patina and droop.

The mail brought the above champagne colored pearl beauty to me.  I love it when I'm looking through an Etsy store for something else, and out pops a lovely I just HAVE to have!!

I got out my favorite rhinestone button collection as well.  These little beauties give it all the 
bling factor!  

With the new year and the milestone birthday, my verse to share with you is this:

Acknowledge Him 
That doesn't mean to just nod or wave and think, ok, I know You're there.
It means to look into His Word, learn it, make it your own.  Then, when He has shown you HIS ways,
your paths will be directed by Him, and your way made plain to see.

I hope that this year each of you will choose to look to the ONE who has ALL the answers.

I am so blessed.  God has been so good to us!  So if you'd like to join the party and share your lovelies with us please add the url code from your blog post to the link below.  
A huge welcome to my newest followers, and a huge thank you to those of you who have left me such lovely comments this last month!  You each are such sweeties!!

I enjoyed looking at all your lovelies this morning. Especially the laces on what I think are the old fashioned clothespins. My favorite color is pink, but sometimes it's purple! My favorite verse is Philippians 4:4.
Rejoice in the Lord always:
and again I say, rejoice.♥♫

Trisha said...

You always have the prettiest treasures! It is hard to pick just one color so I will tell you 2 of them: Aqua & Pink! My favorite verse is 1 Corinthians 13. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday...hope it is wonderful!


Christine M said...

Happy birthday Doni. Everything is so beautiful. My favourite colour is red and my favourite verse is 1 Corinthians "Love Is".

FlowerLady Lorraine said...

Happy Birthday Doni ~ It is always a treat to see your lovely pieces that you create with. Such wonderful colors.

I'd have to say I like Dusty Rose and Mauve.

Favorite Bible verse is hard, but I'd have to say my all time favorite is Romans 8:28, especially since losing my dear husband 9 Dec 2012.

Again, Happy Birthday ~ FlowerLady

Happy Birthday Beautiful ---- I personally lean toward the 23 psalm - the first full chapter I ever learned by heart and I still say it in the KJV version if we read it at church.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Happy birthday, Doni! Love your pretty pinks and creams. I'm sharing a little pink with you, too. Enjoy your day!

SarahGeorge said...

Dear Doni,
Wish you a very Happy Birthday!I love your craft collections :) I too love pink and it is my favorite color too :). Oh, I love laces too! And my favorite verse is Psalm 37:4 "Take delight in the Lord, And He will give you your heart's desires". Thanks for hosting this linky party :)

Hello Doni, hope you are doing well and Happy early Birthday. Your blog post is absolutely beautiful. I love all your pinks and those buttons are so beautiful. You have some lovely things in your collection for sure and I can't wait to see what you have been making. If you are using those lovely items it will be fabulous....

I never like picking a favorite quote from any work of literature and that is true of the Bible but if I had to pick I would have to say the 23rd Psalm. I think it is probably a lot of peoples favorite. It is the one we learn as a child and somehow that seems to make it special I think.
I also like Galatians 5:22. Again I am not good at picking favorite quotes.

Well my friend I am off to get some much needed rest.

Hugs, Beverly

Tea Cottage Pretties said...

Oh Doni, I forgot my favorite color...... it is blue. I bet you did not know that. Everyone thinks it is pink and yes pink is way up there but blue has always been my favorite. Hugs, Beverly


I remember my 50th birthday:) You sure have LOTS of eye candy! WOW!
I hope you Birthday will be very special. Thank you for having a giveaway to celebrate.
My favorite color is blue/pink!
Verses, Galatians 5:22&23...

Cynthia said...

I love it all! Yum, yum! This is better than cake - lol! Happy Birthday, Doni.

Mom E. said...

With all those beautiful yummies, who needs cake??? Happy Early Birthday to you! Happy 50! It just gets better! You have such amazing laces and pearls and trims trims trims! I would love to win your giveaway, and YOU know it! I love creams and greens, light olive or grey green. Scriptures I love are MANY! Mathew 11:28-30 and Mark 9:23-24. I love the King James Version. You are so sweet to consider giving us an opportunity to win one of your beautiful creations!

Happy, happy 50th birthday, Doni! Your photos just make me feel good! My favorite color is a wonderful, warm pale pink that leans more toward yellow than blue. Not quite peach. I know you understand and can visualize it. As with so many others, I love the 23rd Psalm. Can't wait to see your newest project!

A belated happy happy birthday.

Some beautiful items you've shown here. I love the lace w/the dark burgundy background and well, just about everything --- beautifully displayed. Glad I stopped by!

Enjoyed your reflections on the verse too. Thank you! Jenn

I hope 2014 proves to be a good year for you and yours.

I enjoyed looking at all of the lace. It is a big weakness of mine. I even named my antique shop Lavender and OLD LACE!

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...
