Vintage Poinsettia

Mom's poinsettia brooch. It is maybe 45 or 50 years old, and probably from the five and dime...a magical place at this time of year to a little girl...some of you may have never heard of the five and dime, but that is another conversation. I remember looking at this in and amongst all of the wonderful "jewels" in Mom's jewelry box, as a special treat every now and then. A treasure trove of vintage buttons, costume jewelry, a mustard seed...and the occasional rhinestone. What fun it was then...and still now today as I remember her every time I wear it during the Holiday Season.

Happy Holidays to all of my family and friends near and are so special to me, and so much in my thoughts at this special time of year.

My Elegant Chair

My beautiful chair. I found this wonderful chair about 12 years ago. I sanded and painted and sanded some more. I glazed and sealed with a clear coat that enables all of the layers to actually show the depth of the tomato red paint and dark chocolate brown glazing. This week, my elegant chair will be going to its new forever home...and I must say that I am sad to be letting it go. For years this has been the chair that kinda makes a girl feel pretty just sitting in it. I do wish my chair the best on its journey to the northwest, and I will once again be on the lookout for the graceful lines that seem to complete the thoughts that run through my heart and the need to give something a new beginning. Happy trails.......
