A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

A Pretty Corner...

Years ago - I purchased a handpainted folding screen at a 
yard sale for $5.  I've never been able to part with it.  My whole living room decor has been set in motion by this piece.  
It's not in the best shape - but I love it and so it stays.
Gorgeous antique picture frame!

Nothing pricey here - yard sale beads and sachet.

I cannot believe you got that screen for $5!!! Don't you just love finding a treasure like that and it is even more of a bonus when the price is so good!! I don't blame you - I would decorate around that piece too. Lovely post.
Happy Pink Saturday!

I'd have a difficult time parting with it, also, Joyce. It is just beautiful.

Have a beautiful PINK weekend.

Hi Joyce~
You asked me where I found the ZOTE soap. I found it at a Mexican grocery store. I can't remember where I saw to look for it there, but they were right. Hope that helps. =0)

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share. I love this folding room divider. I can see why you fell in love with it. The roses are so exquisite, and it sure does pop in your room shown. So lovely in that corner.

What a wonderful idea to drape the beads over the edge like that. I love that. So romantic and pretty. Your sachet is just gorgeous as well.

I love the use of the antique frame as well. That is a beautiful vignette for your corner. Thank you for sharing with me sweetie. Many country hugs, Sherry
