New Pretty

Check out my new Tiffany-style decorative light my husband got me for Christmas. I love it!  It goes well with that carnival glass compote, doesn't it?  I used to have a very similar one, got it at a good sale at Lamps Plus, had it for maybe 3 months, then......



Noooooooooo!

That little incident was about 3 years ago, shortly after we adopted our little Shadow. She's a sweetie, but how she managed to knock the turtle off a shelf is beyond me, she only weighed about 3 pounds at the time. And to be truthful, we don't know that it wasn't her larger sister who did it. But hubby found me this lovely replacement, so everything is good. We haven't had any recent breakages, so hopefully our new turtle is long-lived.

I am linking up with Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday.

I am also linking up with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  Lot of parties to visit, I'm trying to stay in touch with so many wonderful others.

Thanks Missi, it does glow nicely. It is lit here, but of course I couldn't get a decent picture of how the light was glowing. Thanks!

They do look great together!! Your Missy (I think it's Missy)looks a lot like my Tibby. My Tibby knocked a full pyrex casserole of goulash off the counter once. I can relate!
