Bonjour Mes Amis!
Hope you are having a great week so far. Today I have some random bits of this and that to share with you.
Isn't this glittered angel just gorgeous? One of my dear friends gave it to me for Christmas, and I just love her!
She really sparkles and shines in the light.
I think she looks right at home on our mantle surrounded by candle light!
Next up is my large glass apothecary jar, which you have seen many times before here. I love changing it out with the seasons, and for winter I've filled it with giant pinecones.
I painted the pinecones a creamy white, and even though it doesn't show up in the photos, I've added clear glitter to them as well. Because you know my motto............
"You can never have too much glitter!"
I love displaying the apothecary jar on this vintage silver tray, with just the right amount of patina (love!).
Here is a closer look at the pinecones.
Ok, sorry these next shots are dark in the foreground, I guess it was due to the bright white snowy background. Anyway, our Katie visited the groomer yesterday for a new 'do, and wanted to show it off to you!! She was being a bit camera shy, and just wouldn't turn and look towards me!
This is one of her favorite perches, sitting on the back of our couch, front paws on the window sill, checking out all of the action!
Ok, I told you this was going to be a random post! I ordered Rick Steve's Italy book from Amazon, and was super excited when it came yesterday! Hubby and I first visited Italy 13 years ago, and fell in love with the country! We still talk about that trip, and vowed that we would some day return. So, we are hoping to get back there sometime this year, I can't wait! This book is huge, well over 1,000 pages. So I thought it would make for some fun reading and dreaming to help us get thru our cold, snowy and dreary winter!
Looks like Katie decided to have her picture taken after all!
I can't believe how much she has grown! She will turn one year old in a little less than 2 weeks.
And last but not least, I was super thrilled to discover this giant vintage Syroco decorative ladle last week at one of my favorite consignment shops! It stands over 2 1/2 feet tall! Of course I will be covering up that "gaudy gold" with my favorite shade of creamy dreamy white paint!
Usually the consignment shop is on the high end price wise, but I was surprised to see how reasonable this piece was. I think because they thought no one would want the poor thing being so, well, gaudy gold!!
I'll be sure to share with you her transformation when I am finished!
Looking forward to seeing what you all have been up to, have a great day!
