White Wednesday Vintage Lace & Sparklies

White-Wedneday-Button Hello this White Wednesday! Head on over to visit Kathleen at Faded Charm to see an especially breath-taking display of whites from Bloggers all over.

I have really been loving white lately; all shades of white!  I have used aroma beads added with scented oil in containers around my house and for gifts. You can see a previous post on these fun little nuggets by clicking here.034

To the aroma beads I added Creme Brule scented oil and it sure smells edible. I blinged it out by shaking gold glitter glass and dropping in some vintage pearls from the same strand wrapped around the neck of the bottle, The bottle was a Goodwill find for a buck. I have seen them for cheap at Hobby Lobby, as well. I dug into my stash of trim and decided on this off-white piece of vintage lace trim. The jewel hanging from the center of the bow is an old dangly earring I had. 035

I had so much fun and instant gratification because I put it together super-duper quickly. I put together another using other bits of lace and jewels. I can’t help but be reminded of what the Wisemen brought to the new baby Jesus. Beautiful fragrance and “Gold”.043



Hope you are all having a beautiful week and an especially great White Wednesday!046

These are really charming Cindy. I love how all the textures and finishes play off each other. The touches of bling really take it to the next level!
