~ Ooops I did it again~

Hello Guys, Well I did it again...Remember last month when I told you about getting me a "Globes De Mariee" From Richard at " My Historic Home" Well I have been on the hunt ever since then to find me another one..As my poor Victorian side board was just too lonely with just the one ha ha!! I am joining Sherry at " No Minimalist here" for her brand new party...Thanks Sherry..

This is the one I got from Richard and she gets center stage after all she does have seniority...
And here is her sister  I just got last week from France!!! Can you say Love it...

This one is 16 inches tall
It's 10.5 wide and 6 inches deep...It came without the dome

I love the sweet little wax flowers on it...They use to make these flowers with cotton and dip them in wax
This one has 4 mirrors on it...ca. 1890
This is what they call the wedding pillow...Like I said if you want to know the history of what the leaves, flowers and mirrors mean click here...I think I have started a new collection ha ha!! which I don't need ..Now I have to find me a dome to cover it with...Oh well I so love a good hunt!!
Thanks for coming by...My Daughter did not made it up this weekend as she hurt her back at work sighs...
Landen at 5 Months..can you say Fat!!! My Granddaughter wears a back pack and uses a baby Carrier..So I told her she has a " Back Pack and a Fat Pack" ha ha!! You know what they say about breast fed baby will this one is indeed healthy ha ha!! I just love all his little fat rolls..He now has 1 tooth, can sit and roll all over my house only  thing he doesn't do is play dead ha ha!! This Landen does not like to sleep he not fussing just like to play until he falls asleep of course as soon as you get him in a car he's a goner..Len and I both have really been enjoying having this little guy to hang out with...
Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Gloria

Well, I am not exactly sure what that pretty item is that you showed up..because..I am Antique ignorant. But I DO love a sparkly so..I am going to say "LOVE IT!"
That little pumpkin of a boy is adorable! Is he for sale? No...guess not! Ah well.
I can't believe that much time has already passed since he was born...
Love and hugs..(I need to read up on those globes..yup!)

Landen is as cute as can be, growing up fast. I like your new acquisition and hope you find a dome for it. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Hey Gloria:

He is a cute one. They grow up so fast. Youngest granddaughter was 6 mos. yesterday and she is a little butter ball (breast fed also).

Richard Cottrell said...

Ms. Gloria, Ooops is right. And I am sure there will be more Ooops in the future. I might be able to find you a dome . Last time I was in St.louis there was a couple and not bad priced. I will try and go next week and see if they are still there and how much. etc. If you are interested???? There was one on ebay last time I looked. They do get into your blood. Stop by soon and see me. Richard at My Old Historic House.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I came right over Gloria!
OMG is that pic of Landon ever adorable! He is a well fed little lad!
And I hear you about getting behind on blogging because of our grandbaby's! I have Addison quite a bit, like 3-4 days a week but I love it!
And I love your new pretty! Not sure I have ever seen one but it sure is a beauty~
Big Hugs,

Hi Gloria! Oh, we're both babying this morning! Little Landon is so cute! He already has a tooth? Love seeing that sweet little fat bum bum! :)

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Carole Burant said...

All the way from France...you really don't fool around when you're searching for something! hehe I love this new Globes de Mariee, it's just gorgeous. I was going to suggest asking Richard if he'd have a dome for it, then I saw he had commented and offered to find one:-)

Landen is such a cutie pie and I love those baby rolls! hehe I have no doubt that you've been having lots of fun with him:-)

Bohemian said...

Your French Globes are divine... I've only ever seen them for Sale here once, in an exlusive Antique Store... very beautiful.

Landen is just precious! Chubby always looks absolutely adorable on a Baby... wonder why it loses it's 'cute' lustre once we reach this Season of Life? So not fair!!!!! *winks*

Dawn... The Bohemian

Mornin' Sis...

Ohhh my...I just adore your new french wedding globe, Sis!!! Aren't those little wax flower buds just the most dainty little thing that you've ever seen? Sooo pretty!!! I hope you will be able to find a globe for it...wonder how hard it will be? Ahh...but you're right...the hunt is sooo much fun! Hehe! Well Sis...you have a gorgeous pair of wedding globes now and they look absolutely fabulous on your buffet!!! Ohhh yea...I can tell that you are going to have great fun with this new collection! wink!

Ahhh...so sorry that Dawna didn't make it up this weekend! Sorry that she hurt her back...saying a little prayer for her...and for you too, Sis! Are you feeling any better today? I think I'm doing a little better...I have been having a fibro flare for about 2 weeks now. I'm sooo ready to start feeling better! Girl, we have got to get better...just 2 1/2 months till you get out here!!! I'm counting down the days, Sis!!!

Well sweet Sis, you take care and feel better! Thank you for sharing your new french pretty with us...it was a real treat!!! I'll talk with you later, Darlin'!

Love ya,

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Ooops...just me again!

Sis, your Landen is just adorable! He really is a little chub-bub! I love it!

Love ya, Sis!

Kim said...

I'm with you Gloria - I love those little fat rolls. What a cutie pie that Landen is. I'm sure you are enjoying him so much. My Cole wasn't sleeping at all until I started putting him down on his belly - he loves it and now sleeps all the time. Shhh - don't tell anybody!

Red Door Home said...

These are so pretty and intricate. I have not seen them before. The glass domes make them look even more special.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Landon is adorable, GLoria! That butterball baby is as cute as can be and so pinchable. Better make sure he wears green or someone will pinch him for sure today. He is a doll baby!

I wanted to drop by and wish you a Happy St. Paddy's Day! Hope you are well and that all is well in your world. Love your beautiful antiques. Those have always intrigued me no end, and yours are gorgeous.

I'm back today, but I will be back on a more regular basis in the not too distant future. Have missed you, my sweet friend.


Sheila :-)

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Oh your little chubby cherub is so stinkin' precious in all his nakedness!!! Sweet!

Honey your new globe is a great companion for the first. Both shine in their beauty.

May Irish blessings rain on your day sweetie!!!

Sue said...

I would love to get anything from France! I have to say that I wouldn't have even know what that was...but, I can certainly tell it is a treasure. Did you happen to see the spool cabinet I brought home from my in-laws house...I thought of you. I think it was on my Monday post this week.

I didn't know about the day of silence.

xinex said...

Love your new bridal dome without the dome, Gloria, but I love your Landen more. He is such a cutie!...Christine
