~A New Place to Shop & a Dear Friend~


Hi friends~


I've been doing a little on-line shopping ( again ). I have a new favorite " place". It's Queenies's Etsy shop. Ya'll know Queenie don't you? She is one of the sweetest people I have ever known and I'm so glad we are friends. :) She has a few blogs now that you MUST see but then she sets up an Etsy shop just for me....j/k.

Oh, I am so addicted.


The first item I purchased.... a gold filigree powder box~ it's just perfect on my dresser








Oh and lookie here at this sweet Angel I just bought for Mammaw~







She loves Angels and look at the detail~ it's gorgeous!



Mammaw is going to LOVE her~



Now you all know I love embroidery & I couldn't pass these up~


( I did a cartwheel over these )



Beautiful aren't they?

She even sent a little gift just for me :)



A vintage Avon jar. Yep~ it was meant to be here. :)



1973~ the year I was born~ didn't I tell you Queenie is the sweetest?

I just adore her ( even when she doesn't send me a little special gift....lol. :)







I'm thoroughly enjoying my new found treasures...


Recently, I went back for a visit & saw these~

Hello gorgeous!

Queenie hand painted them~





Look at the detail~ Oh my I nearly fainted ~

is this not the most exquisite little trinket box ever~






We can all use more trinket boxes can't we?





& look at this one~




This one is NOT for sale ( anymore ) :)


I asked Queenie if she could do a CUSTOM order for me~ & she said YES!
Can you imagine having something handmade by her~

I needed a creamy color to match my decor but I wanted the pearls and rose material. This just spoke to the girl in me & it came out PERFECT!





Oh, I can't wait for it to get here~ ( one more picture )




Slowly but surely all of Queenie's stuff will be in MY house...lol. :)


Thank you Queenie~ not only for being my friend but for sharing your treasures...


My Mister thanks you, too...lol.


Queenie accepts money orders...no credit card or paypal required. :) Her prices are great and her shipping is SUPER FAST!


You are fabulous my friend~
