Pearls and Lace Thursday #121 Tray of Pearls!

Blessings just keep pouring in from all parts of the world....
that is from YOU my followers and readers of my blog!  You ladies are the most wonderful!!!
Thank you so much for taking time to contact me and leave comments.  You just make my whole day better!

I told y'all last week that I had been remiss at sharing PEARLS with you for Pearls and Lace Thursday for much too long.  I will be making up for that today!!
What do you think??

This is the tray from that old raggedy trunk that I thought I'd try to beautify.  The trunk has been relegated to the garage, but the tray is a permanent fixture for my craft space.

Some of my newest pearl pieces are now part of the collection, including that sweet heart shaped pendant below.  My friend Paula whom I've told you about before and her co-worker worked their fingers to the bone for me finding some lovelies to purchase...long distance!!  Paula owns a delightful antique shop, Somewhere in Time Antiques, on the Mississippi River in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  You can read about our delightful trip to Missouri and Paula's shop HERE.   Each year I have been delighted to call her up and ask her to get me a bunch of items together that she thinks I will like.  I have NEVER been disappointed!! 
Thank you again Paula for a delightful box of goodies!

And I have added a few pictures of the craft room which is STILL in progress.  It seems it will be in a state of non-perfectness for a while...possibly until July!! 

So ladies, did I do a good job catching up on the Pearls??  It's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!
Add your url code for your post to the link below and be sure and visit the others attending the party.  Last week was a blast!  Such beautiful and artistic items were shared!  I was so excited to have you all join me!!
Blessings to you!

Your blog is my very favorite place to visit. Today I sit here drooling at your divine collection of all things pearly and beautiful. You and I are two peas in a pod when it comes to lace and pearls. Have you received your parcel of love yet ? My heart skips a beat every morning waiting for the posty. No sign yet but you will here me from where you are when it arrives xo

hello again!! thank you for coming by my blog, great to hear from you! Sorry I gave you the wrong link (Christines Homemade Creations), I have that one redirecting to my new blog Christines Cozy Corner, and I haven't figured out how to get on the old one anymore! lol :D

I was so interested to hear that your husband has fibro, you know all about this then! It kinda forces everyone to become more gracious. I'm so thankful for my hubby who is so supportive and gracious with me, we are blessed! <3
