~ A Rosary ~

(French Farmhouse 425)

Hi friends
I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.
My husband surprised me with this beautiful large Rosary from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture


(French Farmhouse 425)

As soon as I opened it I draped it over my antique chippy pink column and there it's stayed since.

I love it
Thanks to my sweet husband
...
I can't believe 2012 is almost here.. Do you have any special New Years plans?
My family and I will be cozy at home for the New Year
Just the way I prefer it! :)
Have a wonderful weekend and a very
Happy New Year!!!
xo,
Rachel

Rachel,
Such a lovely gift.Your husband is dear. You have placed it so perfectly in your home. It's beauty and significance is splendid with your exquisitely sculpted Sacred Heart.

Mr D and I will be home tonight. I will make a tray filled with appetizers and we will open one of our best bottles of wine. At midnight we'll pop open some Champagne and sip it by the fireplace where we display our pretty French "T"! : )
Happy New Year!
