Whites and Wonderful Friends

Happy White Wednesday!  I thought I'd share a recent update to a shelf in our living room, as well as gratitude I feel for wonderful connections in blogland.  I won my first amazing spring giveaway from Lisa of Suburban Retreat, and was the recipient of a lovely 'Pay It Forward' gift from Judy of French Laundry!  I was also glad to hear from the recipients of my 'Pay It Forward' gifts that enjoyed receiving them.
It has been such a blessing to join this community of supportive bloggers.  Thank you ladies!

Here is a display change I made to our living room shelf.  This etched mirror was hiding in our basement.  A stamp on the back reads '1939', the year our house was built.  There are chips in the mirror (taped & hidden behind the flowers), but I love the vintage look of it.


 The beautiful tags hung over the shelf are made by talented Rosemary of Ozma of Odds blog:


I nestled the lavender sachet I received from Judy of French Laundry on the shelf.  It arrived wrapped in this pretty toile ribbon:

I am very grateful to have found such kind friends via blogging.  
And I also want to give a shout out to a dear college friend of mine who is having a birthday today - Happy Birthday my dear Mary!! 
My fellas are also celebrating birthdays this week, so there is a lot to feel blessed about.  :)
