Anniversary Gift

I am a silly romantic. . . 
I asked Shannon of Sweet Inspirations to make 
a special memento in honor of our 32 Anniversary that
was at the beginning of February.


I have been admiring her Sweet Inspirations for quite some time now
and I thought it would be so fun to have one of her vintage lace hearts
personalized with out wedding date on it
to hang in our Master Bedroom.


Items in our Master Bedroom have been reminders of our family we love.
But now that the youngest will be going off to college in a year,
I decided to change that focus back to 
he and I as a couple, and on our love for each other. 
As soon as I saw this on Sweet Inspirations Etsy shop, I knew
that I wanted to have one.
I could probably make one myself, but Shannon's 
work is exquisite!

I love her choice of vintage laces, buttons, beads and embellishments on her gorgeous ...EVERYTHING! She makes fabric collages, fabulous Christmas stockings, and also sells amazing hand dyed Viennese laces. I love her vintage formal look. Not Victorian, but more of a formal shabby chic, more of an English Country look.  Many people say, "I've never heard of that.....", but it makes sense that you wouldn't hear  of something you weren't looking for.

I love the glimmer of the faceted beads she so carefully hand sews on her items.
The round  silver beads add to that shine. 
Each item is unique, beautiful and created with thought and care.


The feminine pink porcelain roses are her trademark. Most of her items have one or more
pink porcelain roses on them, and they give it just the right touch.
I was so happy when it came in the mail!
I had to share it with you all.



If you like her style as much as I do, check out her Etsy store, Sweet Inspirations, or her 
Facebook page of the same name, and you can see the marvelous
creations she makes.


We look so young....and we are still in love, even though we are
"Old Guys" as my hubby says...
The happiest hearts to you today, and always!
Hugs,
Betsy

  7. Lovely! Did your husband get you something as well? You should check out http://www.hintworthy.com. You can make a profile with your preferences for jewelry, then your husband can shop there for jewelry and make sure he gets you something you'll love!

    1. My hubby gets me things all the time that I love, and he doesn't mind when I buy my own gifts.
      He brings me flowers and is such a sweetheart, it is such fun. I was spoiled at Christmas and those
      gifts should go for the entire year, I think! He won't think that, but I do.
      What a great idea, though, I will have to check it out and let him know!
      Thanks for the idea, Mer!
      Hearts,
      Betsy
