Pockets of Pretty

Beth has been purging this week and I have been puttering around the house. One of my favorite things to do in my home is create little pockets of pretty. Inspired by Cindy of Queen of Tarte and her beautiful bin of seashells and pearls, I decided to bring out a lovely triple strand of pearls Doug gave me years ago. I combined them on a silver-plated tray with some other doo-dads including a shell necklace and some beach glass. This way I can enjoy my necklace every time I am in the powder room.Friend Cindy Pestka made this necklace. I was looking for something metal to offset the lace and glass and wrapped this baby around the neck of the bottle and I love it! Subtle and just the right touch.

This large ceramic kitty was made to be a fountain. She sits beside our fireplace as decor. She needed a little something. This bracelet is attached in the back with a rubber band to create a choker for Miss Kitty. She used to wear a rhinestone neckace but the 'real' kittens thought that was too much fun to play with. So far the choker hasn't been as tempting as the dangly necklace.

Bring out those special pieces of jewelry and see how you can incorporate them into your decor.
