Lovely Lady

This lovely lady is a Christmas gift from my husband. I named her Isabelle. I found her at Hobby Lobby and with a 40% off coupon she went quickly under my tree. 

I put her front and center on my mantle with apothecary jars on one side and a silver glittered frame on the other side. 
For Valentine's Day she is hoping for a crown or tiara.
I am still filling the apothecary jars. One has my cream colored millenary flowers in it and the other has pages from a hymnal. Not sure yet what will go in the third jar. 
This is my favorite rose. Large, fluffy and white. 
I enjoy the color of these Christmas balls so much, I have decided to leave them out all year long in what else but another apothecary jar!

Oh my, she is beautiful. I love the creamy classic color of her. I'm doing a bathroom and bedroom in these egg blue colors. So fresh and cool. Thanks for stopping by REB.

My Best,

Karen, what a pretty post today! I love that Isabelle has a wish list, too!! Hmmm, that is a great idea....letting inantimate objects have wish lists, LOL! The mirrored ceiling tile is really doin' it for me, too!

I leave my pink balls in my apothecary jars year-round, too!

Big Hugs,
Angelic Accents

Oh Karen,

I just love your "girl on the mantel", Isabelle. Such a sweet face. I was just at Hobby Lobby. I have to go see if she has a "sister" ~ hope you don't mind... :) I love the idea of hymns being wrapped up like that and the apothecary jars. I have a bunch of apothecary jars and never seem to know what to do with them outside the crafting studio... Thx for the tips.


P.S. - love the vintage seam binding...

You can never have enough lidded glass jars! And doesn't everything look better under glass?

That's the same thing I have done with my pink ornaments...they are sitting on my coffee table all year long. Some things are just too pretty to put away, aren't they! Yours are gorgeous! Sherry
