Favorite Finds.

This is my contribution to Pink Saturday this week, a few favorite finds of mine!
I cannot pass by roses of any kind...
This is an Italian piece, a Capodimonte candle- holder. My Granny had some of these flowers at home (and she loved them so they are dear to my heart!), my Mom and I still have a couple of them.  Last week I found this pink rose and a similar yellow one too.


Love ephimera, these postcards are quite impressive, with a black/dark background.

Have a lovely weekend, hopefully sunny and warm. Despite we had a snow sprinkle again last week,  I noticed all my bulbs are sprouting up! ... I'm so doing the happy dance!

  24. HI Monica, Oh those capodimonte pieces are so pretty, I have quite a few in my home. There are a some of them that I had painted to get rid of some of the colors I wasn't to fond of.

    I wanted to say I enjoyed you sidebar pictures very much, but the ones with the dog is a winner.... quite the model.

    Have a Great Super Day-

  26. Monica, your things are so pretty. My mother loves Capodimonte, too.

    I am just back to work, and feeling much better. It had been so long since I felt like visiting anyone, and I've missed you all.
