Pretty Is As Pretty Does...


This is a pretty lady named Rebecca, who is a dear friend of mine... with her is her pretty little granddaughter Kylah, who is also a friend of mine...


Pretty Rebecca creates pretty tresors from vintage items, like this pretty vintage ladies glove box she added her magic touch to with vintage lace, hankie, millinery flowers and all sorts of other pretty embellishments... it is absolutely stunning!... and I was the lucky one who was able to purchase it from her pretty shop A Gathering Place...

Here is a closeup of all the pretty embellishments...

She included this pretty card she designed and created herself... love it!...

She also included a pretty little handwritten note to me and some yummy herb tea... Merci Rebecca! ... now, wasn't this a pretty little post? ... xoxo... PS I snatched the photo of you from your blog again Rebecca... hope you don't mind!... xoxo

Dear Julie Marie,
I'm writing my post again as I guess my previous one didn't go thru.
I've missed your visits lately and several months back I left a comment on you blog to announce that you had been given an "honest Scrap" award. apparently something didn't work out but if you aren't an award free blog, feel free to grab the button from my blog and add it to your sidebar.
I love the beautiful things your got from Rebecca. true works of art, especially that marvelous glove box.
I also love you new blog look and your photo. very nice for a change. I've recently changed mine too.
hoping to hear from you soon wish you a fab sunday.
