Something New and I'm In Love...

Hello, friends,

Do you ever get too old to get excited about "something new"..?

As some of my friends might know, any thing in BLACK & WHITE

 makes my heart sing,
sits my feet a'dancin'
 and  squeal just a little bit......

and when my daughter came over with a present for me
and it was this AWESOME
MANTEL SCARF, in black and white with beautiful black tassels dripping off it,
I just about fainted.....*thud

It's so perfect for my mantel and for my room,
I can't believe it.

You know how, sometimes, your room is just nearly the way you had in mind,
but......not quite.?
You need SOMEthing...no matter how large or how small to add the
pizzazz you are searching for.

piz·zazz... glamour , magic, magnetism, oomph, charm (or pizazz), seductiveness, witchery ..

Well, this mantel scarf is bringing my room waaay up to where I want it.
How can something this small add such OOMPH ?

When we are able to repaint,  I'm going to be pretty much finished with this room...
WAIT....what ???
....are we ever "finished" with decorating...?

The reverse side.....the sweetest hounds tooth.
so smart...so classic...so SWEET 

"Stacy...you KNEW I would love it....but did you know how MUCH..?"
♥ ♥ ♥

 ♥ Thank you, sweet girl ♥
I love you.

    I too am smitten with pigs. They make me giggle!

  3. perfect. When I saw Brenda's post today I saw your picture. At first I didn't know it was yours and I was thinking how much it looked like your style. So funny as it was. You got style, girly.

  4. Oh BJ, I love it and it is perfect. We all know how much you love your black/white. Your mantle looks terrific.

  5. Doesn't it make your insides flip when a child brings you something you just love? To know that they actually pay attention and know what you really love? It looks fantastic!

I do have to snicker a bit though...right before I read your post and listed directly above it on my blogger dashboard in my daily blog feed, Podso had her new post, also titled "Something New"...hers was about getting a new knee this past week!
