I have been reading this book by Arthur Lawrence Merrill about Queen Victoria's life.
I have always been something of a fan of Queen Victoria and her reign
(I know-big surprise:).

Included in this thank you are pictures of lovely papers that Rosalind from
sent to me.
Some of the papers are from her stash...
while others she made herself.
I can honestly say I have never seen such beautiful hand-made paper as those precious pieces she shared with me.
I can't wait to make something beautiful with them!
Thank you Rosalind!
This antique glove box was a gift from my dear friend Christine for Christmas.
I had admired it and the little sneak went back after we left the antiques store to buy it for me:).
The details of this lovely box seemed like good subject matter to test out larger pictures:).

Gingerbread peeks out from behind pink roses.
No Victorian home is complete without gingerbread:).
This particular piece of gingerbread divides the living and dining rooms.
Thank you for joining me in the dining room. Please feel free to stay for some wine and cheese:).
I also wanted to thank all of my blogland buddies for your very gracious and kind comments-it is such a blessing to have such wonderful friends!
Remember-it's not the size of the house that makes it liveable-it's the amount of love found within!
