My NEW HEADER......things that I love.....

I decided today that I HAD to change my "header", making it more about me! 
 Since I've just returned to blogging after a bit of a disconnection, I felt I should add pictures that have a special meaning and importance in my life. 
 The first one from left to right is in our bedroom, a sweet window with cute little saying, a shelf with wire wrapped little bottles and vintage European postcards...

Next picture is my Santos holding my collection of rosary's, she holds a special place in my heart....
The next two photos are my special little room.  Mannequin that I tweaked with jewels...the shelf I left outside to age, THEN turned the hose on it...oh my, it's so perfectly perfect! I had to have a crown, so... I whipped one up, no stopping me.
 It's just a little corner of the room that I love to settle in.
Last, but not least.... the big wire rack that I drug in from out behind the house (spurred on by my daughter) and turned into a quaint little spot to hold vintage family pictures. 
I'll be sharing these rooms and all that they hold special to me, as the time shows itself.
I thought you might enjoy knowing why I chose those to "head" up my blog.
Challenge yourself....
Embrace yourself...

Until tomorrow...

  7. Hi Sandy. I love how you aged your shelf! I read one time years ago that if you bury old cans and pitchers in the Fall and then dig them up in the Spring, they have a beautifully worn patina. I'm so impatient that I've never been able to wait but I'd love to try it out.

    Your banner is lovely!

    Blessings... Polly
