Harbinger of Spring?

I really hadn't planned on joining in the party this week, but I felt compelled in light of my recent thrift store purchases.  White really does welcome daydreams of spring.....

 {Clearly I did not notice how crooked the candle on the right was ~ sorry!}


I found this lovely white porcelain vase at a new local thrift shop today ~ I was giddy to stumble upon it {the new store, that is}!



The white candlesticks were a thrift store score.  {Say THAT three times fast...}  Club G.W., actually.



The vintage crocheted lace and doilies were picked up at a church barn sale last summer.


Then I saw this petite Infant Jesus of Prague statue and fell in love.  Right there.
 

I grew up with statues like this in my house....I never would have believed that I would actually be hunting them down in my old age when I got older. 


It could use a bit of scuffing up, but other than that it's perfect.  My daughter saw it and said, aghast, "Mom, there's a CHIP in the crown!"{like that's a BAD thing} to which I replied, "Works for me."

Don't forget to join in the fun here on March 2nd
and link up to my

Grab a button from my sidebar {I finally got the code fixed!) and spread the word.  And be sure to get your toile stash ready for a reveal!

Have a great week!
  

   I'll be linking up now over at Faded Charm and on Friday over at Lemoncholy's Flight of Fancy.

Hello Kathleen,
