Serendipity

Dear Friends

I hope your Easter was beautiful and you are enjoying the beautiful Spring weather.  I mentioned in my last blog post my daughter and I worked on a DIY.  The story is, I found a beautiful mirror, old and a few pieces broken off.  I love mirrors and this one is absolutely beautiful to me.  I found  the mirror at a second hand store and brought it home.  I have been wanting to update my bedroom for a while.  I've had a Mahogany set for over 30 years.  I thought about painting it but could never bring myself to do it.  The set is in good shape but I wanted something different.  I went a month later to the same shop and found the chest of drawers.  What sold me was the curves and the pulls, I new the mirror and the chest was "Serendipitous"!



Hippity Hoppity!

Dear Friends

Yes, Easter is on its way! My daughter came home home for a week and we worked hard on a DIY, I hope to share soon.  We baked, sharing our cake box cake!  The weather was awful and we spent some time in closets because of tornado's, along with my granddogs, never a dull moment!  My Chinese snow ball bush is pretty this year but did not have as many blooms as last year.  I've been sharing bouquets on IG and sharing with you today!   If you would like you can follow me on IG, "Shabbyqueen".




Friday Goodwill Find:Velveteen Rabbit


Dear Friends

Are you enjoying your Spring?  Do you remember the pink velvet blouse from Goodwill!  I've made puffy love hearts, shabby bracelet and now velveteen Easter eggs.  The children's book the Velveteen Rabbit inspired me and its beautiful story!

Friday Goodwill Find:Pouring Spring

Dear Friends

It's officially Spring!  Yay!  I have been enjoying all the Spring inspiration in blog land.  My Friday Goodwill Find is this "Blush" damask table cloth and eight napkins.  Can you believe someone owned this and never used it!  I couldn't wait to open it up, wash, iron, and impatiently dress my Spring table.  My Spring table with vintage, thirsty, have a beautiful Spring drink!




Vignette's

Dear Friends

Happy St. Patrick's Day,  I'm sharing a little green and wishing much love and blessings!   My post today is a word when I was young, I promise, I would not have known.  So, with wisdom, I've learned to Love "Vignette", the meaning is beautiful itself, a brief powerful scene; a good vignette leaves you wanting more!  A small impressionistic scene; a short, descriptive passage that's more about evoking meaning through "my pictures"!  I only hope so, my vignettes convey "Spring"!
