LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Egg vases and Swap pictures

I received my Valentine swap from my friend Shirl . Oh My Gosh !! She really spoiled me !! Look at this !! She made me two , very sweet hearts, a Victorian cracker, a beautiful card, and the piece de la resistance' this YUMMY hand ribbon embroidered pillow !! Wow, am I spoiled or what ?? She hand did the basket of flowers, complete with a metal basket and tiny seed beads. I am in love with this pillow !! She also added lavender to each piece, so it smelled as yummy as it looked !! :) Thanks Shirl !! She has just started blogging and will be selling her pretties eventually, so I will share the link when I get one. :)



Still obsessing over these bottles. :) The tiny blue one was my great Aunt's, as well as the tiny pink one underneath this picture. I wanted to have them out to enjoy, instead of packed away. So, I added vintage perfume labels, and some old millinery. I am loving them now !! :) The little pink one has a few rhinestones and glitter as well. :) Amazing what a little foof can do. :) The blue lily of the valley was an old Listerine bottle.
These are my latest obsession, and newest collectible. I LOVE these sweet egg vases !! Mostly made by Inarco, and Enesco these hail from the 50's and 60's. I just love the soft pastel hues, so incredibly ME. lol So fresh and spring like !! They make me happy. :)
Well, Not much else going on. Rather a quiet week. I will do the Blog Giveaway results on Sunday, so if you haven't left a post on the last one, please do so !!! Hugs,
Rhea

What a talented friend you have and so generous too!! I love it all but that ribbon embroidery really catches my eye. I've always wanted to try that but just never got around to it.

I love what you did with the bottles. Where do you get the vintage looking labels??

Have a great weekend!

Hugs,
