Our Favorite Things




Cindy from My Romantic Home is hosting "Our Favorite Things" weekend and I had to join. I read about this fun event at work today and couldn't wait to come home and take a photograph of my dresser in my bedroom. I just rearranged it and I just love the way it looks. The dresser runner I purchased from Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses. I originally had it on my dining room table, but I like it so much better on my dresser. The jewelry holder was a gift from my daughter, Rachel, for my birthday. I thought it looked so pretty with the pearls on it. I get such a peaceful, contented feeling when I go into my room and I just love the way it makes me feel.



I am playing around with new photo software and found this pretty pink lace frame. I thought it was perfect for this picture. Be sure to check out all of the others that have joined in this fun weekend event. I hope I posted the link to Cindy's blog accurately (which I highly doubt:), so here it is, just in case. www.romantichome.blogspot.com. Thanks Cindy!!

Hi Joyce,

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I really love your dresser. I think it would be nice to own a life size one, but I don't have the space for it.

Take care,

I love vintage finds and can't have enough jewelry! Your dresser vignette is lovely and your mannequin can change outfits as often as you! The frame around your photo is great. I've been working with these kinds of embellishments myself and it can be addictive! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Have a great Sunday!
