joy...

I received the most beautiful package in the mail this past weekend.  I recently won a giveaway from Rebecca...


I have always wanted a handmade necklace...


Isn't it just lovely...


I took a few photos of it displayed on my whimsical cottage lampshade but knew where it should nest (when it is not around my neck)...


This is the gorgeous mirror I traded for with Maureen at the white show.  I knew it would be just perfect in my Paris Hotel Suite.
(Remember I put the old mirror that was here in my studio?)

I have my Grandmother's rosary hanging on an old column next to the mirror in the corner near my dresser and knew how perfect my necklace from Rebecca would look with it...



Don't you just love the detail on the mirror...


Alongside the perfectly chippy column... 


Both new treasures bringing more "joy" to my suite...


I have yet to paint this dresser and mirror white (which were both my Moms).  I do have another one of her dressers in my suite too and wonder if I should switch them as the old mirror matches the darker wood on this one better...


Do I paint everything?  Do I switch the dressers?
I am still on the fence I guess.

So for now I will just enjoy my new suite additions...


Thank you Rebecca!


Thank you  Maureen! 

Sharing my joy with Kathleen for White Wednesday.
Thank you for visiting!

Rebeccas art pendants are a special joy to recieve. Not just because they are amazing, but because of the love she puts into each and every one.
You are one lucky chick!

That is a beautiful necklace and I love that you are going to display it.

I know what you mean about the furniture. It is hard to decide sometimes, isn't it, what to keep as is and what to paint? xo Diana

ps...love that mirror you traded for~

Sandi, I have a hard time saying "oh paint it" if it's good pieces in good shape. But I will say how wonderful you have your g.mother's rosery. I love the necklace too. :):) Smiles, Susie

Sandi said...

Your necklace is beautiful Sandi! It goes perfect with your column and mirror too. Congrats for winning!!

I was rearranging some things today and can you believe I dropped one of my HEAVY beveled mirrors. The bottom wood piece came off and put a couple splits in it, so hubby will have to fix it. How dumb is that? I could not believe it , but at least the glass didn't break!!
Blessings~

Hi Sandi, the necklace you receive is so beautiful and looks perfectly wonderful hanging there with your mom's rosary. I would definitely switch the dressers -- don't paint the darker one. It looks great. I love the mix of white with dark wood. Hope you are having a good week. It's been so busy around here. I just don't know where my times goes. Best wishes, Tammy

Susan said...

What a wonderful necklace for you Sandi! It looks beautiful resting on that gorgeous column, next to that elegantly detailed frame. What a sweet suite!

You found the perfect spot for your beautiful new nceklace.

I've been riding that same fence for quite some time in our house with dark stained woodwork. It's a tough decision!

That necklace is amazing! And I love the way you have it displayed on your chippy column! Absolutely wonderful!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Ooh, the necklace is lovely and I love how you are displaying it, too! The dark dresser has a beautiful finish and would look good in a room of white. Sometimes I keep the wood, but sometimes I don't, so I know your dilemma!

Miss Gracie's House said...

The necklace is lovely...and from a lovely lady, too!
Have a great week!

Lucky you...the necklace is SO pretty! And to answer your question...I probably won't be able to get to Brimfield until Sat or Sun...crazy busy at work.

Cindy said...

GASP! Your necklace is GORGEOUS! And i absolutely love the beautiful rosary too. They're both amazing, especially all posed with the column and the pretty new mirror...
