FINAL Pictures from my Friends Cottage Apartment

Hi Sweet Bloggy Friends!

If you have been following me this past week, you will see I have been featuring a dear friend of mine who is 83 years young and her darling COTTAGE Apartment! This is my 3rd and last installment of pictures from her wonderful apartment.

I had a few pictures left of mainly vinettes that  I had taken. Again, she has such a wonderful knack with using her wonderful antiques in unique ways.  These next pictures were taken in a small 2nd bedroom and hallway. Enjoy!

I just adore this secretary/display piece!!!
This is the door to a hall closet! Dontcha just
think this is soooooo clever?
More treasures!
The wall of family pictures with many of these frames
being the originals that were used over 100 years ago!
She loves going UP and uses every space to
display treasures!

LUCKY ME!!! Look what came home with me after
my visit this time....
This frame is rounded glass and OLD!
These 2 pictures look as if someone just cut them from
a magazine and then placed them into these oval frames.
These frames are the largest oval frames I have
seen...almost 18 inches in height!
I had to repair one of them...but had so much
fun finding a place for them in my Victorian Parlor!
I'll have to get pictures soon to show you where they landed!

Last year a friend brought me a necklace she had purchased with
a pendant and had me paint a small rose on it for her.  She
loved it so much and encouraged me to paint up
some pendants and sell them. 

Well, I finally found some small oval
pendants and gave it a try...these are about
1 inch and I have placed a real SWAROVSKI crystal
on each one and covered them with glitter...
would you buy one of these @ $9.99?

I always want to keep my painting goodies
at an affordabe price so am asking
my lovely blogging friends for their advice.

I even recycled this sweet Cottage frame and
used some new acrylic paint paper and
painted a sagy green background with
my pink rose.  I married these 2 together!
This is for sale in my
etsy store!

Thanks for allowng me to share these
wonderful pictures with you!
