Home Again

Finally home after our whirlwind trip to Florida to celebrate my father in law's 90th birthday! It was great to be together with our family for a few days although it was incredibly cold for Florida.....26 degrees this morning!

The beautiful Cathy Penton charm above was received from the fabulous Julie of Being Ruby....
I was so lucky to be one of the winners of her give away in November. I have tied a beautiful blue vintage silk ribbon to my inky blue Paris charm....The ribbon came all the way from France and was part of the paper bundle that I purchased from Corey at Tongue in Cheek Antiques.....Thank you again Julie and Corey!
Don't they look perfect together?

Time for bed! Good night! :)

Glad you are safe at home after your travels. We are getting ready to go to Berlin today in all the snow. :/

Oooo , Laura,
I don't mind telling you that I was a little envious of that particular giveaway win. It is so beautiful...... mind you, it couldn't have gone to a better home and you've even enhanced it with that lovely ribbon.
I think that you and the charm were meant to be together, it being blue and all !! XXXX
