Thursday Random Ramblings

You asked to see what I bought at Renningers...
just this....and only this little clock face.

Remember...I was with Dad
 and we were only there an hour and a half.

But we had fun...
...and we were together.
 I plan to come to the February Extravaganza alone if I can borrow a car! 

This small compote is a family piece.

I love it...
...and took it out for a little photo shoot.

This little sterling tray is another family piece.
I put it on the dresser in the guest room and filled it with the silver and turquoise pieces of jewelry I brought with me.
I know, it needs polishing!

The chunky turquoise bracelet was made by the famous
   I was lucky enough to win it several years ago
 in one of her fantastic giveaways.

Perfect to wear and also display in this season of hearts.

Thanks to all of your great comments on the Renninger's post.
I really wish you all could have been with me...
...boy would that have been fun!

Next month, I plan to stay longer...
...much longer!

The Brighton heart was given to me by my little sister MaryBeth.
The silver locket was Mom's.

I have been having a fair amount of success at the church sales and thrift stores in the area and will share my finds soon!

Oh...and I would like to say...
Hello and welcome to new followers and readers!
I am so happy you found me
 and look forward to getting to know you better.

And, yes sister Lynn...
...this is one of your linen napkins.
...a gorgeous, French, over-sized, slate blue linen serviette from the set that I bought for you
 from Corey Amaro's wonderful online Tongue in Cheek brocante shop.

I'm just borrowing it since you are not here in Florida!

And to all my other friends...
Hope the weekend ahead finds YOU 
feeling fine and having fun!

Hi Laura~~ I love those little watch faces. We are always looking for them at the Rose Bowl and trying to find "Cheap" far, not too lucky. Yours is precious.
Have a great weekend

Hey Laura,
Sure hope you can make it to the Extrav in February. Maybe we can set a time and place to meet for a 'Blogger' luncheon. How fun would that be?

By the way, I wouldn't polish the silver tray...hehehe.
