~White Wednesday # 169~

I was lucky to find a few french treasures this past weekend.  These rosaries were my favorite.  Some of which are mother of pearl which we love so much. Enjoy!  xoxo K.

 I placed them on my mannequin when I got home so they wouldn't get all tangled and decided they look pretty good so they might stay awhile.  Now I have to decide if I should sell them...ohhhh, I wish I didn't want to keep everything I buy, but look at these beauties!!

These wonderful french books were another great find and who cares if I can't read them, they look great especially with a rosary hanging against that pretty blue(azur, I think) color.

I also want to send my heartfelt sympathy to all those who lost loved ones eleven years ago today.  I'm sure we all remember where we were and what we were doing that horrible morning that changed so many lives.  God Bless!

  7. Love your rosaries. A friend recently brought me a child's vintage rosary with a tiny tiny cross, from her vacation in Italy. I was so proud of it. Thank you so much for hosting WW. xo

  11. How can I remove a picture from the above party? I am using my daughters laptop for some reason it put Ms. Witherspoons blog picture since she is one of my friends on my googleconnect instead of the doily! It is number 33. Darlene @ Welcometomariasantoinette.blogspot.com.

  13. What great photos Kathleen! I loved them all. I can't believe how fast the time is moving and how busy I've been. I'm hoping cooler weather (we have had really hot weather for almost a month solid now) comes soon, and with Fall's arrival life slows down a bit for us all.

    Take care,
    Sue

  18. oh so many ways to display rosaries. My family and I try to pray a rosary every night and I have been wanting to display them in every room, nook, and crany, as a reminder not to forget to pray. Thank you for the inspiration.

  23. I like vintage rosaries and have a few I have found in boxes at auctions and estate sales.
    I don't think I have a mother of pearl one and I like anything mother of pearl, still looking for forks

  30. Oh, these would be very, very difficult to part with, I agree! Your Vignette is absolute perfection! What a great 'Score'... and like you, when I 'score' great stuff it is so difficult to not want to keep my Favs! *Winks* Now that Mannequin, I could NEVER EVER part with one like that! *LOL*
