I was stir crazy and needed to escape for some MiMi time.  I had been watching the grandboys and both have been sick.  I knew the medicine that would work for me~ antiquing.  I was wandering around 2 Antique shops and found beautiful inspiration in white.  My inspiration piece to work off was this gorgeous tag by  Rhonda @ http://alittlebitfrench.blogspot.com/.

She looks very beautiful on my blass bottle by my madonna ... So off I went in search of pretties, I found a great candle holder from Finland...

                        Candle is crooked because the floors slant forward!  It wasn't my hand...

Next find is this sweet jewlry holder

              I found a vintage clock that doesn't work and love this face, I've got great plans for the case

These beautiful Madonna's just reminded me of my French blogging friends, so they came home with me. 
                                               I have a great collection of my families rosaries and medals which I cherish and place on my dresser.  The Merry Christmas Perfume Bottle is From France, My Grandpops gave it to my Nana.

So I went about placing the Madonna's around the rooms and they ended up in the front room
I added the cross and paper medals
                                                     And placed them on my wicker table
                                                                    In my secretary
                                                     Mixed with my Blue and White
                                               I love collections and this is just a few of my treasures. 
                                                        I will showcase my others throughtout the year.
               This is what I woke up to this morning...snow and in the teens, minus 1 with the wind chill!!    

So glad I got my Mimi time yesterday...now I have my new slipppers on with my warm socks, cozy pants and thick sweater...ahh.   I am like my niece's kitten all snuggy up~~  Di  Sharing with some wonderful ladies   Collections at http://thepolohouse.blogspot.com/
