Pretty Treasures

Pool Water Splashing ~ 60's Music ~ Hot Summer Days
~ The Scent of Chlorine ~
... and flowered swimming caps ...

Oooooh, this really stopped me in my tracks
Red glass and crystals
adorning the base of this lamp

~ Violets on china always gets my attention ~
A D O R A B L E !!!

... and vintage poodles make me smile ...
(this one was on a metal tray, and not actually pink)
Sculpture of a white horse galloping

~ And be still my heart ~
These treasures only came home with me in my camera
while perusing an antique shop with a friend last week.
but oh my, I could find a place in my home for each one!
(except maybe not the bassinet!)
~ What fun to spend time with a friend, admiring treasures ~

Hello sweet Violet. Sorry I've been absent. Coming back slowly.
LOVE that tray. LOVE that white poodle. But I know your heart stopped with those two sweet black sculptured dogs.
It's always nice to shop and browse with a good friend. I miss that.
Love your pretty Valentine hearts too ; )

Hi Violet, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Oh dearest,

Before Ruben and I go out on this gorgeous sunny and crisp day, I had to come by to thank you for your comment. LET'S GET SOME POLKA DOTS GOING ON HERE! Oh how I love polka dots. So French. But on a pair of shoes? MAIS OUI!!!!!!!!

Poetry. God is poetry. The scriptures are parables, spoken and illustrated by the best teacher that ever lived on this planet. The Psalms, Song of Solomon and Proverbs? My goodness, we serve a God that is all about the LANGUAGE OF LOVE.

Be well today, Anita

What a lovely way to spend the day. With a friend, antiquing! Yes! I would love to do that with you, dear Violet!! And like you, I love china with violets. I had a beautiful set of tea china, white with violets in the center of each piece. I gave it to a friend who loves violets, too, although her name was not Violet. I should have saved it for you!
have a blessed Sunday!

So fun to go trasure-hunting - even with the camera - that way, you can bring home more and more ;) Happy sunday!

Well you know I LOVE the poodle! And that chandelier is so gorgeous. We drive by this very expensive chandie store all the time and I always gaze in the window and dream of owning the HUGE pink one just dripping with prisms! Someone told me that nothing in there is under 6k! Yikes... a girl can dream.

Take care,
