Last to first:

Well Ron, this one is actually the real deal! Hee hee...while in PSE7 I was able to change the color of the stones around to green or blue or yellow, etc., but I actually liked the original raspberry ruby color BEST so left it! Fun that you asked!!! If I see you reaching in there to grab stuff I'll have to slap your hand however. Hee, hee.

*

Doug- Thanks for mentioning the light because I did have trouble with it. Glad you feel I did okay!

*

Hi Renata - Do you think any of them are from my travels like you do? Humm... :D

*

Valarie! I love being a lady. Being feminine is a real privilege and so is having "baubles"! :D I have to thank the woman before me, in this home, for the wallpaper. She totally has my taste and I didn't have to do the work. :) Thanks lots for what you said!

*

Courtenay :)! I bet you have some pretty things, too? :D

*

Thanks Dominick!

*

Barbara, the person is in the details. Your perfect images of Birds and Blooms say volumes about you!

*

Also many thanks to Jeff, Gord, Tammy, Avril, Michelle and Paul! Sure appreciate all the kind things that you said about this one. Means lots.

-Laura

Thanks for your patience with my replies.

Laura- What I love about this is the old time feel of elegance. I love the lace table cloth. I remember when these were on every table in the house, the time that was spent by the ladies making them. A lost art for sure. I also remember when these bigger pieces of jewelry were the must have for the classy lady. Love the craftsmanship that went into the jewelry and the design of it. I agree about the color of the stones. Gorgeous. I love this series as you bring back an era of the high class lady. That was a look I shall always cherish.

Last to First:

Oh yah! Sherran... You heard -RIGHT-! Our "rain" never came...it started as slushy snow then the wind picked up to blizzard conditions with snow blowing SIDEWAYS like mad!!! 16cm's were predicted at first. Now hey wont even say! HA! Time to add another blanket to the bed!

Cant even imagine what the pass is like through the Rockies right now. My car was blowing around the road as I came home tonight!

Thank you so VERY much Sherran, John. Paddy, Steve, Maria(((HUGS))), Big Sis xxxxx, Kitty, Frank :), Ellen and Chris!

I have REALLY enjoyed your comments VERY MUCH! You warm my heart on a cold and snowy night.

Wait till you see the perfume bottles! HA!

Mare, it's always such a pleasure to read your interesting comments! Thank you so much...YOU SHOULD SEE THE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS here right now! NOT GOOD! I always wonder about the homeless on nights like tonight. :(

It's 32*f without the wind chill and it is VERY windy! Almost white out conditions. We have huge trees and they are just really bending RIGHT around, doing the HULA!

Night night! Thank you both and thank you all again!

Hi Amanda! :))) I love my collection of old time things. I think maybe I am really from that era. The time machine dropped me off too far ahead!!!

I appreciate your kind words and visit! :)))
