A pendant and some wire

Happy Thursday morning to everyone.
I've been away from the computer for a few days.
No reason...just took a break.
While I was away, I received this beautiful pendant from a special friend from Germany.
Johanna Gehrlein from Silber-Rosen sent it to me.
Isn't it pretty?
Thank you so much sweet Johanna!
 While shopping at a favorite vintage shop, I found this wire basket. I love that it hangs!! Added some linens and lavender...and poof...LOVE it!!
 The rust adds to its charm.

 This wire cloche was another find.  Anything with a screen dome catches my eye these days. The lumpiness is evidence of continued use by someone...makes me wonder what it was used for...and what the owner was like...hmmm.

It's time to shower for work.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
Hugs to you all.

  4. Love that hanging basket! Could do all sorts of stuff with that one.

  5. Hello Debbie,

  6. The last image...a sifter of some sort maybe. Love the wire basket. ♥O

  7. The basket is SO sweet. This is exactly how I would use it. You just find the best stuff, Debbie!! :-)

    Someday I will drive up and we will go out bumming together. You will be my good luck charm!!


  8. Hi Debbie! Love the basket-it is so perfect for the vintage linens and the lavendar! I also love the ornament your friend from Germany sent you! Beautiful!

  10. Hi Debbie! I love your wire basket and that pendant is beautiful. As far as the wire cloche goes...I think it was a strainer in a previous life. My mother had one just like that and there was a band that circled that top part and had a handle on it. The band had a lever-like device on it that could be unlatched and the handle could come off. Not sure it that's what yours is-but that's what it looks like to me.

    Missed you-was thinking about you last night and wondering where you were...and Laurie too...were you gals out gallavanting around without me again??!! Hugs-Diana

  11. Love it Debbie! The wire basket is fabulous! Wish I could find one!


  12. Love your new finds, Debbie! The wire basket is gorgeous! I love wire anything! And what a nice surprise you received from Germany! Hope you are having a great night!

  13. Hey Debbie! I wondered where you had been, girl! I've been just plain LAZY with my blogging lately. Spending too much time (beautiful time!) surfing from one blog to another gathering holiday decor ideas and leaving hugs and kisses. lol! Anyway, your wire basket is AWESOMMMMMME!!! Jealous! Jealous!! lol!

  14. I have been looking for one of those wire LUCK yet! What a pretty pendant too.

  15. I love that big wire basket! I haven't run across any here. Great find. The mesh dome looks to be a mesh sieve without the handle. That would be my guess. My mom had one for straining or she'd use it to sift powdered sugar.

  16. That basket is so perfect there! If I ever see one for sale I'll not pass it up!


  17. A little lae to your post, but had to say that I am in love with the basket. I have never seen one that hangs before. Cute.

  18. Hi Debbie. I too have been not been on my computer as much as I like lately. It's just been so busy around here.

    Your basket is adorable with those fluffy white towels and sweet lavender. I haven't decorated anything in too long. There are a couple of projects in the wings, but I haven't been able to get back to them :( Hopefully very soon!

  19. Hello Debbie,
    I only now dicovered your post about the pendant. It is so nice that you like this little thing. I wish, the little angels bring luck to you.
    Greetings, Johanna
