~Angel Wings and a New White Party~

After getting through a blustery weekend and being without power yesterday I'm able to get a new post up.  I was lucky enough to win a wonderful giveaway from Susan at Evelyn and Rose recently.

The package arrived in the mail last week and I couldn't wait to tear into the box and see her lovely handmade angel wings......aren't they beautiful?  She sells them in her Etsy store if any of you need a pair for yourself:-)

I knew I would have many places in my home to hang them and took a few photos of a couple places in my living room to share with you.  I also received a copy of the newest Somerset Life magazine in which Susan has an article.  Thank you Susan.....I love both items!

On another note, I was contacted by Becky at Timewashed asking if I could help her get the word out about a new"white" party she will be starting on October 24th called Blissful Whites Wednesday.  Becky is a very talented lady with a lovely blog and Etsy store and I think all of you out there missing my party each week will love to join in with her from now on to get your white fix:-)  You can go to her blog post HERE to get all the details and help get the word out.  I will be posting about it on my Facebook page HERE and you can "share" my post if you'd like or do one of your own.    

I also want to thank everyone again for all your supportive comments lately and want to  tell you that letting go of the WW linky party truly has been a stress relief for me and I look forward to joining in on Becky's new party whenever I have a chance.

  18. The angel wings are beautiful, I really adore them.

  19. Hi Kathleen,
    The Angel wings are fabulous! Love your blog! I'm your newest follower.


  20. I have to tell you, your header for your blog is beautiful. Love just looking at it. So very pretty.
    The angel wings are so delicate, would be a wonderful accessory to have to hang wherever.
    Whenever I see those incredible shutters like yours I think about all the awesome things I had to leave in KY when we left. So many great goodies I loved but not enough room in the truck and our vehicles. Imagine our neighbors had a field day helping themselves to what we had to leave, even the people that bought the house.
    Had to leave hundreds of Somerset magazines behind also. Too expensive for me now but I'd love to buy the Somerset Life you showed. I'll sneak a peek the next time I go to Barnes & Noble.

  21. Hi Kathleen, I just read this about your WW's. I kept checking all day today wondering why you hadn't posted, now I understand. Will sure miss your WW's now that I had decided to try to get back to doing this! I wish you well.
