Pretty Things

Did you have a lovely Valentine's? I hope so
I certainly did ... I got a card and flowers and was whisked away for a drive out ... stopped for coffee and cake and then found a fabulous shop where DH bought me some lovely things ... I'm not one for jewels and such ... but a sweet little piece for my home always delights me ... 
A few weeks ago I came across this beautiful french cabinet and it was love at first sight



And it was in the sale .. hubby bought it for me and I checked online and found it selling for 3 times what we paid so I was one happy girlie!
And gracing the top is one of yesterday's buys (not a good photo ... sorry)


she is too heavy for me to lift and put in my light tent! She looks lovely on my cabinet
 Then I saw this ...


which now sits beautifully in my kitchen ... and you know I loooove my plaques so this came home with me too


 and how could I leave behind these book boxes ... beautifully made of wood


I adore them ... and finally this called to me too



Not everyone's cup of tea but I love it!

Did I have a good day? You betcha! Because this also arrived from my sweet kind friend Jacira


Such a pretty and delicate piece of work ... and take a peek inside


Beautiful embellished and filled with such lovely trims ... 
"Thank You Jacira"

And thank You ... for stopping by and allowing me to share with you ...

Till soon

Glad to hear you had a wonderful Valentine's Day, your cabinet is wonderful, as are your other finds. Btw I happen to love your venetian mask (but maybe that's because it comes with my territory ;-) Jacira made you such a fabulous creation, totally pretty and so sweet!

That French cabinet is wonderful... and would fit perfectly in what I have planned for my bedroom... but I get around to re-doing it.
