Found Beauty #3- Pink Rosary.

For my Found Beauty post, this weekend I'm sharing this pink rosary, belonged to my husband's Grandmother, that I found in one of his drawers while I was packing our stuff before leaving our home, back in February. Needless to say, my hubby was happy to give it to me!

It was a hard time for me when I found it, and it's serendipitous that it has found the way to me once again now, when things are not going as planned and I need some comfort. I don't want my dear blogging friends to concern about me... let's say this moment of my life is helping me grow in grace, and I'm working to become a 'better me'.

To further lift my spirit (apart from eating Nutella), I arranged a bouquet with the hydrangeas I was given by my aunt, simply covering the stalks with burlap. Arranging flowers truly makes me happy!

Have a glorious, pink weekend everyone! Let's make the most of it.

    What a gorgeous rosary you have shared today. It is just beautiful. How wonderful to know that it belonged in your husbands family. Can't you just feel the love when you rub it and pray? As if DH grandmother is right there with you. I love that it belonged to a family member. Found just at the time when you needed it in your life. You will be in my prayers sweet one. Sometimes we have such a hard time understanding our path that we are guided upon, at that particular time in our lives.

    Thank you for sharing sweet friend. The hydrangeas really accent the pearl colors in the beads. I love the mixture together.

    Have a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

    What gorgeous Hydrangeas and love the way you wrapped the stems with burlap....feminine, cottage and so romantic!
    What a lovely find the rosary was and finding it that way was a gift from God.....I know about "bumps in the road" and we may not think so at the time, but we do grow from them.
    Hope your weekend is going perfectly!
