Bling Baby Bling! ~ Happy New Year!

 "Bling!" is a girls best friend!

As the year comes to a close.....  I thought I would share a few of my favorite finds in 2012.

I found this gorgeous Candelabra at a local antique shop for an incredible $40.00!!!  I couldn't believe it!  It stands a whopping 20" tall and the vintage prisms hang a foot long!!!  The crystals are huge.  It's an amazing piece.

I found the vintage cloche~stand at my favorite antique shop "The White Rabbit".  It was only $24.00!  It's just gorgeous!  The long stem is gold leaf and the cloche is etched with ribbons and swags.

I found this "to die for!" vintage rhinestone crown ~ tiara a couple of weeks ago.  It's huge!!  Fit for a Queen!  I confess.....  I paid tooooo much for this piece.... but, a girl's gotta do.... what a girl's gotta do!

I LOVE roses!! and my sweet hubby sent me two dozen for my anniversary in October.  I saved and dried them.  Dried roses are so beautiful.....  with all the variegated colors.  I put some of them in a vintage compote and they look so pretty on my coffee table.

Wishing all you lovelies a....

See you in 2013!!
