New Banner & Treasures

I want to thank my friend Tiffany http://wwwbeyondthevintagepath.blogspot.com/ for creating my new banner. I love sweet Tiffany & was cruising her Blog & noticed this banner (go over & see for yourself all the goodies she has created). LOVE at first site. As we all know Marie is sooooooooo very popular now & I loved the chandelier & all the sparkle that Tiffany added to this banner. Also our friends/neighbors Pierre & Daniele have just come back for their 3 month stay in Texas. They live between Texas & Mont Pieler France(in the south of France near the Mediterranean Sea). Three months in one place & then three months in the other. So, I guess I was feeling a little French right now. Thank You Tiffany I Love My New Banner!
Here is "Honey" toasting Daniele & Pierre's return at our celebration steak dinner. They say that Texas has the best beef in the whole world. We just love to hear that. I went to visit a new (for me) Antique Store named Golightly's & fell in love with this cute little black shelf. It had to be mine. I haven't found it's new spot yet but, I have it & know just the right place will come to me.
Also, found, loved, & purchased at the same shop is the black side table, old Underwood typewriter, & photo holder. This is how they were displayed in the bathroom (yes, you heard me right the bathroom) of Golightly's.
And here is a quick shot of them in my living room backed up to my rocker (with another vice of mine in view... stacks of magazines). Do you see the photo holder? Yet another new obsession... adopting children. The two on the left were found in Arroyo Grande, California while out at Diana's class, the one on the bottom found in Cambria & the one you can't see because I chopped it off in this photo... I found last week while shopping at Lone Star Antiques in Ft Worth. Please feel free to use this sweet baby if you would like. It is my Wednesday gift to you. As Dawn http://the-feathered-nest.blogspot.com/ says it's so nice to share, so Dawn I'm paying one forward for you dear. Hugs to each of you my friends.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new banner. It is just gorgeous. What a neat friend to create it for you. Your new shelf, table and typewriter are all wonderful. So pretty. I can't wait to see where you put the shelf. It is always such fun when we find new treasures for our homes and these are real treasures. Hugs, Marty

Love your new banner, it is awsome. Also loved looking at your garden again. It is so pretty. Guess you could tell I have not been on the computer in about a week. Not feeling too good. Doc gave me some pills so maybe I'll be back in shape in a few days. Hope your having a wonderful day.
Smiles,
Pat

Charlene,

Your new banner is fabulous! I wish I had heard of Tiffany when I was "shopping" for my blog design. I like having a lot of options.

I am drooling over your great finds (and buys) at Golightly. They look wonderful in your home!

Have a great week! :-D
