Happy Mail and Roses

I always get excited when I get mail from my blog bud, Shanti ! HEY...I just found out! It’s Shanti’s BIRTHDAY! Please stop by her blog and give her some birthday wishes!


She sent me some new jewelry awhile back and I wanted to ‘show it off’ here!


I hope she puts some of these wrap bracelets in her shop HERE because they really are fun to wear.


And the necklace gives me some Florida sunshine to wear here in the mountains. I really need that!

I also won a fantastic Giveaway at My Wonderfully Made for a Gift Certificate to

Bella Rosa Antiques !


Her shop is HERE and it is filled with beautiful vintage items! Her blog is HERE !

I just knew I would choose jewelry...until I saw this Oriental mirror.


Isn’t it perfect for my dresser?


She also sent a rosary and I am honored to have it.


It sure is fun to get goodies in the mail!

And my hubby is always sweet to bring me roses!

I hope everyone is getting ready for a wonderful weekend!


We’ve had crazy storms all week but today it is gorgeous! (we’re still in NC)

Wow, Diane, you have had a great week. How much longer will you be in North Carolina? The mountains are beautiful, but I know you are missing your home in Florida, Too.

Hi, I love the jewelry and the mirror is perfect. I get rather disheartened as most of thr giveaways are for USA only. I can understand it as postage is so expensive....but they always seem such nice things! hope the storms get easier! Joan

Hi there name mate! I agree, it's always fun whenever you get surprises from the mail. The feeling that someone remembered and took time to make you happy is priceless!

Lovely post, everything is so beautiful I don't know where to start. I love the look of the display on your dresser. The mirror goes so well with the other items you have collected. The last photo would make a great painting.

Love all your pretty things and especially love the little bottle. Very cold and windy and raining here but supposed to clear up over the week end. Good thing I decided to hold off with GS until the 4th and keeping fingers crossed we have nice weather and that I sell a lot.
Have a great week end
