Well, This post is dedicated to the Mid week Blues :) Or Pinks !!! lol !!! I am SO behind in showing off some goodies that I have bought over the last few months. EBay was a gold mine right after Christmas with gorgeous plates going for 99 cents plus $2-3 shipping !!! Wow !! So, I slowly have filled up our home, with treasures to keep and some to sell. That and our weekly Thrifting outing. That is my One day out and I can always manage to find a few great things to bring home :) I found these plates and roses dish on eBay. There are three plates altogether. I bought them to go with my cupcake sets, but am thinking I need two of them for the guest bath. Are they sweet or what ? And the dish with the pretty rose will make a lovely soap dish. :)
Got the Bunny tin for 25 cents last Saturday and now I must make some REAL sugar cookies for my family to fill it up. :) Is this stinkin' cute or what ?
Speaking of cookies. I restocked my store with like a gazillion cookies !! :)
And Vintage finds. Love these old hand painted plates. But as you can probably tell, I just have WAY too many of them. :)
Look at this antique crocheted lace. Oh My Gosh !! There is 11 feet of it. It must have lined a sheet or curtain or something. It was quite icky when I found it, all yellowed and stained. But I bleached it ( Yep, a Big no no , I know !! ) And it came out just beautiful !! It does have a few tiny spots left that didn't come out, but probably will with another cleaning. Sweet !!!!!
I found this great old Easter candy box and embellished it with Roses and the BEST pink and pearl vintage brooch !!! EEEK, This was SO pretty. It sold pretty quick. The Easter candy boxes are quite hard to find, and this one had the prettiest pink foil with a floral design on it. It is going to a Wonderful Artist, so I am a bit intimidated, I hope she likes it :)
Thank you SO much for all of the love and support. I know that Prayers and well wishes work as I have truly coasted thru this illness with such ease and strength. I never wanted my blog to be about hard or sad things, we have SO much of that going on in this world right now. But decided early on that someone who is also having the same type of symptoms I have might benefit so I chose to put all of that in here. I TRULY would like to focus on all things Pretty. All things Soft, Pink ( and aqua, hee hee !! ) and a gentle happy side of Life as I truly believe that it is out there, we just need but to look. Not THINGS per se, but all THINGs were made by people and inspired by God, so lets enjoy them all, without making them the Focus. Does that make sense ? There is SO much Beauty and Peace in this great world that we live in. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is ; Phil 4:v 8 Finally Brethren, whatsoever things are True, whatsoever things are Honest, whatsoever things are Just, whatsoever things are Pure, whatsoever things are Lovely, whatsoever things are of good report ; if there be any Virtue, and if there be any Praise, think on these things.
I LOVE that !! :)
