DID I TELL YOU I COLLECT CAMEOS?











Among the one or two things I collect, cameos are one of my favorites. I guess because they usually feature a beautiful lady. I love the look of vintages ladies. My cameos are housed in this cute little heart shape table with a glass shelf. The cabinet was given to me by a friend who purchased it for her home and said it kept calling my name. Aren't we lucky to have friends who obey their furniture? Some of my cameos are real others are just beautiful fakes. I have this one problem (well, I have many, but for now I will be nice to myself), I can't have a surface without something on it, so you can't see them very well. It seems, I just have to put something on everything. Need help, for sure! I know I have shown you a picture of this lamp before, but what I forgot to tell you is that when it lights up, you see a red rose on the bulb. It is beautiful! I going to try to make a crown for "Princess Maya" today, pictures to follow! Still working on the garden, show you when I am done. Have a great day my friends!

I've always thought cameos are pretty and graceful. I bought my mom one once for her Birthday or Mother's day when I was in Jr. High. I don't think it was her style, she never wore it, LOL! I still think they're pretty!

What beautiful cameos you have ... I love looking at them because of the 'silhouette' feature of them. Silhouette art is my favorite. TTFN ~Marydon
