and Beautiful People
I love beautiful things, especially vintage beautiful things. I recently found the most lovely vintage 14K and seed pearl crown brooch. I took some photos of it today and I wanted to share them.

Thank you sweetheart!
And here is a close up.
I have several pieces of tiara and/or crown jewelry. In fact I have a Princess Dianna Franklin Mint Set with a ring and earrings. They will go perfect with my new brooch.
Here is my ring.
This was also a gift from my lovely husband.
Sometimes in life you meet someone and for whatever reason you just click. Somehow they "get you" and you "get them". They like the same things you like and they make you laugh and smile. They champion you and say the most wonderful things to you. They can see beauty in you and you see the beauty in them.
My friend Mary has been one of those beautiful people in my life. We have known each other for a short time but in that time we shared so many laughs and smiles. She always compliments me and makes me feel so fabulous! She is good and kind and loving and has such a zest for life. She is a treasure and such a beautiful person.
Well my friend is moving far away and I will miss her so much. We liked to have lunch together during the week and I am so going to miss our lunch dates. So last night I had a small dinner party for my friend Mary and her hubby Carlos.
Here is my chalkboard sign!
We had roast with veggies and au jus. We also had croissants with honey butter and some other fresh veggies. For desert we had pound cake with strawberries, vanilla ice cream and covered in white chocolate ganache. Everything turned out really well and with only a couple of tiny mishaps before they arrived, we had a great time.
Mary made me feel so good, as she always does, complimenting me on my decor and my craftsmanship. She paid me the highest compliment when she told me that one day when they have their bed and breakfast, she wants me to decorate it. Mary always makes me feel good and I am so glad I shared my home with her this week. We had a lovely time.
I am sad because I will miss my friend but I am thankful to have found her and for the time we did have together. Mary I wish you much happiness in your travels and that you and your Carlos enjoy your time abroad. Till we meet again my friend. You are truly one of the "beautiful people".
Love you, Beverly
Sharing my home with my friend Mary made me think about sharing some photos here on my blog.
(at least I think they are)
Living Room and Dining
Sitting area with vintage fireplace mantle
Walls were designed and hand painted by me.
This is just one little area of our family room.
Now out into the Garden. Okay maybe not a garden but our little piece of land here in Texas.
It's a beautiful thing!
So this week, here's to beautiful people
and beautiful things.
May everyday of your life be filled with both.
I spotted something beautiful.....
Have a beautiful day,
