Free Vase of the Blessed Mother Comes Home to Stay

My husband brought home the prettiest little vase. It depicts the Blessed Mother (the Mother of Jesus). 

She has her hands reverently folded and has a very charming face.

At first, I thought about listing her with my other items on  eBay but then decided I liked her too much and decided to keep her myself. (That happens a lot around here. ha!)

My hubs put the yellow daffodils in the vase.

Then I put her on the table in the hall, next to a lovely hand-painted plate.

 (If interested, you can read more about that here. )

The tableau is nice, don't you think? 

Oh! By the way, last summer, the Rococo mirror was a steal at a yard sale. Paid only, get this, $35!  Originally, I'm sure this cost a LOT more.

Today we are joining Thrift Things Friday on Diann's blog The Thrifty Groove.

Susan, I am serious, you should do interior decorating, you make everything feel inviting with a personal touch.

Your bedroom looks very inviting. I love the look of whites and creams. That mirror is so beautiful! I love that rose plate as much as the mirror. Gorgeous!!
