Life is a basket of pretties........

I think this is so pretty.  I found the ceramic basket bowl at Habitat for $1.00, added the box of 50 cent balls and shazam............a bowl of sparkle and glam.  Love it!

I love all you bloggers. The highlight of the day is when the evening comes, all the chores are out of the way, all is quiet, and I grab my laptop, cuddle up with the kitties and off we go to blogland.
My life has been enriched through reaching out to each and everyone of you.
I find inspirations and renewal when I read about the trials and tribulations that each one of you face in your lives.  I am amazed by the writing talents, the creativity and the loving kindness that comes forth in our virtual world.
Thank you for making me part of your life

Good Morning Sissie...
I love this little basket and the golden colored balls. They are just the right touch for this beautiful little basket. The white and gold together are a beautiful combination. I love your cloche collection on the table. The apothecary jar with the star fish is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of your home. I love. I love the antique ornaments on the glass dish also. Just beautiful.

You are so ready for the holidays. I thank you for sharing this morning. As always, please stop by when you can. I so love your company.

I posted a really sweet post today. You will love it. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Bonjour Sissie!

So glad you stopped by for a visit on my Blog. Thanks so much for the comment on the redo of my chair. It turned out so pretty and I am just thrilled that I was able to paint the fabric. It sure saved me money on having to buy a new chair. I am now following you too so please come visit me again!

Happy Holidays!

Well you found me but you know what I mean. Also your home is to die for. LOVE these pictures

Jodie LeJeune said...

hmmm. All I can say is...I AGREE! (with a big smile!)
To cozily curl up and read blogs (with a glass of wine) is what I look foward to at the end of the day. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out like that but I sure give it one heck of a try! ;)
Thank YOU for giving us such beauty...your photos are fantastic and it's always a pleasure to come peek and see what you are up to.
Your holiday decorations are gorgeous and I hope you have a VERY Merry Christmas season~
everything vintage

Me too Sissie...isn't it the greatest place to be!!! I love glimpses into your beautiful home. The basket is an awesome find my dear.
Well, I didn't go short today. The hairdresser did a little trim and gave me some styling tips to get me through the rough time and sent me on my way.
