Romantic Moments





Happy New Year sweet friends.... With the holiday season coming to an end and thinking of all the tasks ahead of me, I took a little time to relax and to get away from the holiday madness.  I do not want to think about taking down the tree, putting away all the Christmas ornaments and decorations.  Taking time to be thankful for all our blessings, family and true friends and the goals and plans for 2014.

So I gathered a few pretty and romantic pieces from my collection, set them on a silver tray and headed to my bedroom which is my little secret hiding spot.  For the next few seconds, I invite you to envision yourself in this perfect space.  Please delight in the flowers and romantic details.  I promise, it will make you smile.




Flowers and pearls always make me smile.




Love the clean look of pure white linens.




So feminine and romantic.  It makes my heart sing.







Be still my heart.
















I want to wish you all a happy and healthy new year.  Now refreshed and revitalized, I am ready for the blessings and challenges that 2014 will bring.  And hope that our homes are filled with laughter and lots of love.  That we are kind to one another  and to value time spent with family for it is family that keeps us strong and together.

Thank you for your support.  I hope you will continue to join me as I create and share my personal stories.


Hugs,

Janet

  26. I too love white linens edges with hand made lace, crochet or tatting. I also like it when its old and creamy. Heck I like them any way they come but if you find some of those really special ones, yes it does make me appreciate the work that someone has lovingly put into it. I will always rescue handmades at garage sales. I cant believe people sell things for a pittance that some family member has lovingly made, I also like to buy china when ever I find it. Your tray looks beautiful. I can see that you would enjoy looking at it. I have one on my dining table with plates I have found and a tea set. I will change that out as the seasons change. Love looking at your pretty things.
