~Decorating with
Cherished Treasures~

I ordered this shabby cloche from
VICTORIAN TRADING COMPANY
to showcase this lovely little piano music box - one of the gifts that my daddy gave to my mother on their fiftieth wedding anniversary back in 1992. It plays a beautiful classical tune, but for the love of me, I cannot think of the name of that tune! Anyway, Daddy had it engraved "I love you today, tomorrow and always" This little treasure is something that I will cherish always.

Keys tied up with
pretty pink ribbons and chippy shabby birds
from
KATIE'S ROSE COTTAGE


The bird easel and the rose perfumerie tin are from Steinmart in Roanoke, VA. By the way, the music you are hearing, "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole was one of the songs my parents danced to on their anniversary that day.

Deborah, so glad you called and looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at SuzAnna's.

This display is just so pretty - I may ask you to hum the tune - perhaps I'll recognize it!!! What a lovely engraving your Dad put on it for your dear Mother - I know it means a lot to you.

Deborah, thanks for stopping by my blog.

I love the music box. I know it must be one of your most special treasures.

I have one that my parents gave me when I was in high school. I have been trying to get a good picture of it so I can use it on my blog.

I love the way you upholstered your sofa. It is charming.
