I just had to!!

Whilst visiting all my favourite ladies on their blogs the other day I came across this...




over at Vintage Amethyst

I loved it immediately, but I'm sort of packed to the gunnels, so I thought about it for a couple of minutes!! Then I ordered it!!!

I am so glad I did, it arrived the next day!!!

It's so pretty and really does have that vintage look!!

But that's not all, the lovely Alison also put in a really beautiful gift for me too!!!

Look!!


They are so pretty!!

It was just so generous and kind of her!!!

I have to say that I love everything that she has on her web shop, if you haven't already been over there, you really should it's a treat!!

I found lots more that I love too, but more about that another day!!!


Kindest wishes and love

I would not have been able to resist that 3 tiered tray either. It's so pretty!! It's comforting to know that you don't have much will power either my friend!

Love,

Good Morning Sweetie...
OMG what a treasure you found. It is so beautiful. I have never seen one with the 3 tiers in different colors. Just beautiful. Love the little birds. Aren't they just sweet?

I have not been to Allison's. Thank you for introducing her, and I will be sure and pop over and see what else she has to offer. I love it when others share nice finds as this.

Now what time is tea did you say? I don't want to be late.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. I love being Kissed by an Angel. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

I am having a nice 3 days of cleaning out over here, cleaned the garage, now working on my spring cleaning, I clean something everyday, love to accomplish a good cleaning of the entire house at least once per week, but spring cleaning, means the closets, the windows, the ceiling fans, the cabinets, oh so much to get done in 3 days, but I have no babysitting duties this week, so I have to get busy!!!Just taking a break and visiting my friends!!!!YOU!!!!
hugs,
jamie
