Bling Continued~~~~


Welcome back to Fun Friday & Fashions. Let's see~~ we left off last week sharing some vintage jewelry passed down to me from my Mother and Grandma. This week I thought I would share a few more pieces that decorate and find a home in my shabby guestroom. It seemed perfect to showcase in this room and enjoy these precious pieces, as part of the decor.



Starting with the vintage dresser, I painted raw cotton, I added a bit of dresser fashion by adding a sweet jewel box displayed open with some vintage bling pouring over. I love seeing these treasured pieces overflowing like they were just worn and thrown back on the dresser. Like a lady in a hurry to dress for another special occasion.

The cross stitch pendant was made by my mother many years ago. It reminds me of a little picture framed with a rose in it. Mom was a pink girl and loved pink, wore pink and pink roses were her signature flower. It's no wonder I love to paint pink roses.

These choker style pearls were a favorite that mom wore most of her life. They are faux, but beautiful. She wore these till she passed away. As you can see, I refer to so many of these jewel pieces as my mom's, and yes, that's how much of my collection started. The love of her beautiful cherished pieces, gave me an appreciation for these items that can never be replaced and have so much meaning.


These next few pink bling fashions are some of my very favorites. The first pic is a pair of pink cyrstal beads that my mother wore on my wedding day with a pink dress. These are actually very much in fashion again.






Lastly, on the dresser I found this beautiful brush comb and mirror set. It already had the pink roses painted in it's original finish. I found this set on etsy and perfect for the dresser.

Last week I showed the pink shoes I painted and added the earrings to. Some of you asked to see the dress above, so here it is. A lace dress in a very pale pink. I added some vintage pearls and pale pink hat on the tree stand. On the side table I added a white beaded vintage purse and my grandma's church gloves. These are from a time when ladies wore gloves and hats to church every Sunday.





Now this Fashion Friday would not be complete if I did not share the pillow fashions on the bed. Made by many talented artists we all know and love right her in blogland and on line shops. These beautiful pillows grace this bed with shabby charm that only they can bring. A mix of fabrics all working together to inspire pink dreams.

Well that's Friday Fun for this week. I hope you enjoyed seeing a bit more of these vintage pieces and how I have added them into my decor.
I look forward to seeing you on Monday for Marvels and Musings. Till then have a wonderful weekend and blessings to you for happy times!
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hello Celeste!

I hope you still remember me LOL I have been away for so long due to some circumstances. But now I'm happy visiting dear friends blogs. It's amazing isn't it, to have to visit someone online and yet that little moment brings you a dose of happiness.

Now, for the pink guestroom. The first time I saw it I loved it, and now, still does :-) And you've added bits and pieces. When you said it wasn't finished and still a process, now I know. And yes, things like something from a loved one truly are irreplaceable and priceless. I sure remember that cross stitch pendant from your Mom.

(love your painted ornaments and the drawer as a tray. they are beautiful Celeste. Oh and the afghan you made in soft pink shade. crochet you said? It sure looks complicated (pattern) but what a pretty thing to keep you warm indeed)

Celestine,
Your guestroom is so beautiful. I bet your guests never want to leave. It is such a peaceful room. I love all of your vintage jewelry, especially the pieces that were your mother's. My grandmother still wears the crystal necklace and earrings (she calls them earbobs) that she wore to my parent's wedding. She lives in the nursing home and she dresses up almost daily!

Thanks for sharing,
Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Celeste,
I think that if I came to visit and stayed in this room, I would never want to leave. Each tiny detail creates such a welcoming atmosphere. I love your special pieces, and those pearls are so special, especially that they belonged to your mother.

Happy weekend Celeste, everything that you do is lovely.

Hi Celeste!!!
Oh my, that is the ultimate guest bedroom!!!! I love all your pinks and I'm a pink girl like your mom. I would love to redo this room, my little girl's room(although I never had one) in all pinks. You give me lots of good ideas!
Your mom's jewelry is beautiful but moreso because it holds such special meaning for you.
I have to go see what else I missed this week!

A Hint of Home said...

That bedroom is so delicious! The women guests will love it.
How great to have so many antique pieces that your Mom wore. That makes it more special than picking them up in a store.
I know you're keeping busy but love to see your posts.
I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment but it will all work out.
A funeral of a young mother has to be attended tomorrow and viewing tonight. So really what worries do I have, none really. If you think about the Tripp family say a pray.
I hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Celeste, you have the prettiest things!! I wish I could come to your beautiful home and stay in that room :) I would just love to look at everything!! I love that mirror and brush!! Everything you have is stunning!

My two youngest sons and I have been so sick the last few days :( This is the first I have been up in days. I am so tired of this already!!! I hope you are feeling all the way better now.
Love you sweet friend,
Amy
