~When it call's your name and then hangs up!!~

Have you ever seen something that just called your name?? sure you have the only problem I have is I have no room left at the Inn when it SCREAMS my name..and I have to have it and it hangs up before it tells me " where in the H-e double hockey sticks are you going to put in...But I buy it anyway ha ha!!

Just look at this table..sighs can you say L♥ve it..

Oh and the French people

I love it all

Have you guessed what it is yet??

Why it's a HUGE Francesco Beda French privacy screen that I have carried all over my house trying to find a place to sit it ha ha!!

I put it for now in front of my door going into my master suite..But I know it won't stay there..

Of course nothing would be complete without the Chandy bling..

I am joining these parties today

Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Gosh that is gorgeous Gloria!! I would be glad to help you make some room in your house for it by taking a few of your pretties off your hands for you- then it would fit perfectly!! :)

Just know you will come up with the perfect place for it!

This is just beautiful, Gloria...I would have fallen in love with it, too! I am sure it will look fabulous anywhere you put it! At first I thought it was a painting, but it is sort of! I just love it!

Hope you are feeling well, sweet lady!

OM to the G!!! Gloria that screen is screamin' GORGEOUS!!! *swipes drool off chin*
What a find!! I hear ya girl, when it's love it's love and it HAD to come home with you! I think somehow you'll find a special place for it *winks*

I wish I could meet up with you and Courtney...Maybe next time? I can't think of anyone who would be more fun to shop with than you! I know you two are gonna have a blast!...Please take pictures K *winks* Love you! Vanna

Sue said...

Ooh la la..... that is one pretty fancy screen, Gloria! Wherever you place it will be wonderfully enhanced, I'm sure. Girl, you must be feeling better to go out on shopping trips! Glad to see that. Take care! Sue

Elizabeth said...

A beautiful screen, I would have had to have it too!

Madeline's Album said...

Love the screen. It is just beautiful. I also really like your new header. Sounds like you are feeling better I sure hope so. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

No, it can't stay there...those doors are too beautiful to cover up! What about in a bedroom corner? It is gorgeous...but you always find beautiful antiques!

Richard Cottrell said...

I love those screens. I have tried for years to place them in my home, never works. Why can't I just have one??? This one is beautiful. I hope it works out somewhere. my notice is that there has to be a very big room and these screens, kinda divide up the space. I bet Ms. Vanna could find a spot. That girl puts more in her house than anyone. And it is all wonderful. Good to see your post. Happy Valentines. Richard from My Old Historic House.

Olive said...

Use it as a headboard! I have always wanted to do that but have no screen and this one is fabulous.

Unknown said...

Stunning screen! Thanks for sharing Joann

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

That screen is fantabulous Gloria! Gorgeous!!

Ivy and Elephants said...

I just love it! You had to get it. I know you'll find somewhere for it, it's just too wonderful! Thanks so much for linking up, you are the best!
Big hugs,

Dreamgoddess said...

Gloria, that screen is absolutely gorgeous! I would have to put it somewhere that I could drool over it all the time. LOL

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Gloria..YOU ARE BLOGGING AGAIN!! YIPPEEEE! I was so happy to see that you had dropped by...so..that being said..would you be my Valentine??? Hmmmm??? I do love the heck out of you, you know! :)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OOPS! The screen..the screen is just bee-yoo-tee-ful! But..can't you put it just inside your front door so that every living soul who enters will see it? You probably already have a gorgeous entry..but..surely there is room in the front room..somewhere??!!

You sound in great health! How lucky you were to have slid by such an emergency!

Debbiedoos said...

That sure did call you name Gloria. What a stunning piece that is, looks like a work of art.

Sue said...

Oh, how elegant! I try to only fall in love with small things:) The screen will be so beautiful with all of your gorgeous antiques. Lucky lady!

bj said...

O, it is absolutely stunning, Gloria girl. It just about takes my breath away.
You will find the perfect place for it.

Thank you so much for the pretty Valentine, Gloria. You are so sweet and thoughtful....and I thank you so much.
love, bj

Chari at Happy To Design said...


Hehe...could you hear me screamin' your name and feel those big ol' hugs? Girl, it seems like forever since I have been out and about in blogland and leaving a comment!

Ohhhh my goodness or "Mon Dieu" as they would say in French...your new French screen is simply FABULOUS, Sis!!! You really did have me...I thought it was a painting at first...would have never guessed a screen. Hehe! It really is gorgeous...I love the scene..the French are just sooo pretty...don't you think? Wherever did you find this beauty? Thanks for sharing it with us, Sis...I love, love, LOVE IT!!!

Haven't gotten a thing done since getting back from Texas. I came down with a cold (damn airplanes)! So I'm running slower than usual. Hope that my note finds you well, dear Sis!

Love you sooo much!

I would love to have that screen over at my house.
I have a screen that is ivory metal with scrolly this on it, see through. I cannot describe anything to express its true beauty LOL

thanks for stopping by

Happy Valentines Day

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh Gloria, you can't imagine the suprise and total delight when your card came in the mail today. Thrilled me to pieces. Now for someone who never celebrates Valentines, I got your beautiful, thoughtful and loving card and then DH walked through the door with a gorgeous miniature rose bush. Unreal. I think I am having a sensational day. Love ya tons. I couldn't find your email, I know I have it somewhere. Thank you so much. Hugs, Marty

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Amazing Gloria,
You find the the most unique items and your home shows it!
Thanks for the card dear, you made my day! honestly, you did!

Chris said...

Hi Gloria, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

Gemma Wiseman said...

I'm glad I persevered trying to find you! (I am here from bj's blog! Followed her link and ended up on quite another blog with the same title! Quite weird!)

Your blog is a joy! Like a celebration of life! A beautiful experience to wander!

Vee said...

Visiting from BJ's today...

Oh that is a nice piece. Who knew that it was also exercise equipment! Hope that you find the perfect home for the screen so you don't have to keep moving it about the house.

Happy Valentine's Day

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

I'm quite confident that you'll find the perfect spot it can shine in all it's beauty and call home.

You have to, it's to wonderful not to.

God bless you my sweet friend and have a fantastic Valentine's Day!!! :o)

Good Grief!!
You just melted my heart with this fantastically stunning screen!
I know what you mean by no room at the Inn but i would have not been able to pass up that beauty either!!
I am so green with envy but I know it has found a good home!!
