Objects On Display


Several of the blogs I have visited have decided to leave some of the holiday objects on display still creating a winter wonderland. I also will leave some snow pine and mica snowman and snowballs, ice branches out through Valentine's Day. Last evening I tucked some new objects in a couple of my glass cloches that had been stripped of Christmas... One has been replaced with a sweet old photo of a lovely little girl.. old indent glass pink ornaments and buttons and rhinestones tucked on mica snow... the other has a very old valentine and a few vintage objects... of pearls and lace... Have a desire to find new inspiration... Later on this afternoon I will be going to the rec. room to create a couple birthday cards for 2 of Tom's grandson's who's birthday are coming soon... I would love to achieve a simple posh with my timeworn existing treasures.. Rhinestones and crystals add the posh to most of my vignettes which are all in need of a redo, as they have been stripped of Christmas and appear rather undone... They need TLC... As we continue to count off days of winter, I want to find dramatic ways to do simple things I love in my day to day life. Writing, decorating, reading and creating brings a calmness from within for my personal peace... Bliss is sometimes dreaming. I love existing places that enchant me, and indulging in simple pleasures.....

How pretty.
The only place I've seen cloches (sp?) is Victorian Trading catalog. One of these days I'll have to find me one.
