Dream Time...

Today has been a VERY RAINY day!
So instead of spring cleaning...
 I went blogging around :-)

did some photo play at picnik,
It was so pretty,
 it inspired me to play some time away!

I used paintnet cause thats what I have,
and used a medium oil painting setting.
I thought it gave the photos a dreamy quality,
and since I am sharing my nightstand...
it seemed a perfect fit :-)

(click photos to enlarge it shows the effect better)

A couple weeks ago I did a post on my..
  After posting I put the tray on my nightstand...
and have loved it there since.

This is the electric candle I posted  last week..
I put it on my nightstand too.
It makes a nice nightlight.

And a pillar candle because...
I just love burning fragrant candles,
This one is jasmine bouquet.

A vase of bleeding hearts...
I rescued from the rain!

Of course there are a couple chocolates kisses...
on the tray.

Sweet Dreams!

Today I am joing Marty at A Stroll Thru Life

Stop by for a visit!

Thanks for stopping by,

Dear Bella,
What a lovely quiet moment I'm having looking at all your beautiful post's. It is raining here and this is my personal time (before bed) to spend a hour enjoying your lovely pages. I can see that I am going to be here a while, so I better put on the tea as the rains fall and all your pretties entertain me so!

Hello Bella! Loved your candle nightlight! Also, the bleeding hearts, and well, the whole post! Sincerely, Susan

Bella- Ah ha! So it looks like Picnik whispering was louder then cleaning whispers after all! LOL What a sweet thing to do to mention me! Thanks so much! Love the photos you did too- of course having that sweet candle lamp in the pictures just sent them over the top!! I so love that light! Still have to check out Joann's - We have guests coming Friday and I have been trying to get the house back together from a leak in the upstairs bedroom that ruined the ceiling in the study! I also have not taken all my Christmas down ( I cannot believe I am confessing this!) Actually it's not as terrible as it sounds- I had left some of my greenery and pine cones on mantle and and outside front door area- No ornaments on them I promise!

bee blessed

Very pretty! I love your tray and the candle nightlight! I am so looking forward to having my bleeding hearts bloom again although I won't see them till May. Have a Happy Easter!

Hey Bella, thanks for commenting on my lampshade re-do, I'm glad you liked it! :) It was a lot of work, but it was worth it. I used to drive by that neighbors house and just stare at that shade in her picture when I saw it in the trash I was super excited! LOL :)
I like your vignette that you created, but I bet I would love your chandelier more....there's a little sneak peek of it in one of your pictures! I love chandeliers! :)
Gotta run, have a blessed day!
