~~~~SOME THINGS YOU JUST LOVE~~~~

Some things, you just love!!! And for me~it's this sweet bowl with a nest in a branch of a tree. The nest has five little white eggs in it!

These little birds are so sweet! When I saw them I just had to have them, so now they live with me all over the house. They go with so many things I own. I love creating vignettes with them.

This -nest- my son found, he brought it home so carefully in his sweet little hands. I will always treasure it. IT'S PERFECT!!!!! Now I know you are not to get nest from the wild, but this one is MINE!!!!!!!!! I'll never forget the look on my son's face when he placed his sweet treasure in my hands!!!!! HIS WHOLE FACE LIT UP WHEN HE SAW THE SMILE ON MY FACE!!! He knew I'd LOVE it!!!!!!!

I LOVE THIS BOWL.

I got this tin the same day I bought the scissors and easel. Remember, from an earlier post? I would like to stop here for a moment and tell you about TWO new bloggers -------FIRST--Please visit Regina, at " The Willow Rose". She has the most beautiful log home that she is decorating in FRENCH STYLE!!!!!! JUST BEAUTIFUL!!!! She has done alot of the painting and distressing of the furniture herself. She's new to blogland!!!!! Just click on her site name and take in all the beauty and don't forget to leave a sweet word of encouragement!!!!-----Second----Donna, at " The Country Nest ". She is brand new to blogging, she loves all things country, family and gardening. Very sweet!!! Go take a peek, and leave a hug behind!!!!


I loved this when I saw it, it was meant for Christmas but I leave it out all year. It goes with everything, even if it didn't I would still leave it out~ the BIRD makes me HAPPY!!!

Just a little close up!

HAPPY LITTLE BIRDS

Just pull things from your yard to dress things up when you're posting, a little GREEN goes a long way! Look at the things you have around in your house, you might surprise yourself at what beautiful vignette you can create.

Add a little sparkle with old jewelry.

I LIKE MIXING TEXTURE WITH COLOR.

Can you see the red in the rust on the keys? See how it works with the sweet gum balls and pine comb?

Vintage Lace, vintage shoe buckle, broken vintage neckless -- just because it's broken doesn't mean it still can't be beautiful!!! Add a sweet little seashell and a little wooden egg and now you have---- PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!

*****PEARLS*****

~~~~~~~~I LOVE THIS BOWL~~~~~~~~

See the gold leaves~~~~love it!!!

******A little white feather******

~~~~~~~KEYS~~~~~~~

THIS TIN HAS BALL FEET

""""" AND A FLAT TOP! GREAT FOR DISPLAYING BEAUTIFUL THINGS"""""

I hope you have enjoyed all my little tips and treasures!

~~~~JUST NEVER FORGET THE LOVE AND LACE~~~~

Hi Deborah. I'm so glad you are back in what looks like full swing. So sorry about your illness forgive me for not knowing. What happened if you don't mind me asking? Your treasures are just wonderful. You have a special talent. Thank you for your sweet comments, and your prayers for my sis. The only thing I know is that her blood oxygen was at 40, I guess that's pretty bad. I hope to know more of her prognosis soon. thanks again Deb. I really enjoy your blog, its so pretty.

Beautiful Vignettes!!! You are very talented...Many thanks for your lovely comments about my blog...It has been a blast to do this. To meet ladies like you who share similar interests and loves has been especially wonderful. Sometimes we have those moments when we are at a loss at what to post. Thank goodness there are so many of us, so we can jump from blog to blog and get more inspiration when our minds fail us for that day...Hugzzz...Tiina...

Delightful! When I read your profile, it was like reading about myself! I love all the same things..including my grandchild......however, I only have one....he is the joy of my heart!......and he knows it! :-) We have a "date" every Tuesday. He calls Tuesdays his "special day"....I pick him up at school and we do whatever he wants to do. I think I look forward to it more than he does.

I'm having a wonderful time discovering all of you fabulous ladies out there in blogland! How could I ever see all these wonderful treasures otherwise?

Have a wonderful weekend!
