Romantic Thoughts....I found one!!! You may remember that in my last post I told you I was not able to find an affordable little feather style tree? Well, this past weekend I found one at my favorite antique mall! It was half price and already had white lights, white tulle wrapped around it, and it is the prettiest shade of vintage peachy pink!!! And it's a tall one at 3 ft. I got a great deal, but whoever bought this tree before me got an even better deal. I know because when I looked at the bottom of the base there was a Goodwill tag that said 3.99!!!
I was so exited to find it! I can use it for Christmas, Valentines Day and Easter, too! I couldn't wait to decorate it and create a vignette around it! I found two more wonderful treasures that day, also. This lovely book in the best vintage aqua blue. Quite the dramatic title. Maybe someday when my kids are all grown up I will have time to read all these great old books that I really buy just to use in my decorating because they are so darn pretty! Hehe!I also found this delightful vintage hat. It's just so yummy, covered in soft, whisper pink rose petals!
Love, love, love these newest finds. I could just stare at them all day!
Here is a closer look at my pretty pink Valentine tree. The pearl choker necklace is the one I wore for my wedding.The lady in the vintage photo is my great grandmother. To me she looks as though she may be thinking romantic thoughts.And showcased in my favorite frame is cupid herself. Hmmm ~I should maybe give her a heart or arrow or something? Or are silver wings and a rhinestone necklace enough?
Look at that sweet face. The silver wings, rhinestones and doll were all Christmas presents from my sweet mama.
I adore this rose print. I enlarged it from a vintage postcard by C. Klein, one of my favorite artists.
All this romantic decorating really has me in the mood to make some pretty Valentines! Hopefully, I will have some to show you next time.Michelle xoxo
