My Little Treasure

I wanted to do a special post today to celebrate
Rhonda's new Thursday Party,
at Blue Creek Home.

So I thought I'd show you one of my favorite "treasures".

I found her a few years ago at a dusty antique store
(I think she still has some of that dust on her!)

she is a bust, but the base portion had been broken,
so she couldn't stand alone.

She stayed in a basket in my studio closet for quite awhile
until I thought of putting her in this concrete urn in my Living Room.

Now I get to see her everyday
and enjoy the peaceful calm look on her sweet face.

We all may have some problems with "cracks and missing pieces",
but our peace comes from inside.
and I'll give God the Glory for that!

Linking up with these wonderful ladies:


See you Thursday afternoon here for



  1. Hi Debra,
    I think that she has been given new life and looks perfect in your livingroom. She's meant to be around for many years to come.

  4. Oh I absolutely love her...chips, cracks and all!!! Stuff like that really freaks my hubby out, I showed him the pics just to send shivers down his spine lol. But I think she's gorgeous and love how you have her displayed:)

  5. Debra, I love it and thanks for joining the party.

  6. Hi Sweet Debra! I've missed you More than I miss my Size 10 Clothes! Hope all is well with you!

    I've been busy with orders/upcoming shows, which is GOOD and BAD!

    Love your little lady,,,,did you name her? With those penetrating eyes I think I'd name her something like,,,,,Iris, but that's just Moi!

    Hope YOUR weather is improving, I left the house this morning with 4 layers on,,,,,and this coming from a Menopausal Woman! Ackkkk!

    Love, Hugs and a Big Ol' Bus,,,,,or should I say Big Old Bust???


  7. She is just beautiful Debra! Love her in that urn and she is perfect in your living room. I am definitely full of cracks and missing pieces , but thankful for God's amazing love!!

  8. Debra, I think this is a neat, gorgeous find! I like how you have her placed in your living room. What a conversation piece!

  9. Isnt she a pretty one! Such a peaceful expression! Glad you found a place to show her off and enjoy your treasure out in the open! Perfect!

  10. She may have a few chips and cracks, but I think that she is adorable. I like the expression on her face. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

  11. I think your sweet girl is a wonderful reminder that we have cracks and imperfections and God loves us just the way we are... you are right, that IS peace.
    I loved my stop here. I am leaving lighthearted!

  12. She DOES have a peaceful look on her face! Too pretty. This is one of the most unique pieces I've ever seen.


  13. How beautiful crack, chips and all. I think she is right where she needs to be to enjoy everyday. Blessings, Vicky

  14. Debra, you are such a dear! Thanks so much for the kind words here. If my eyes weren't so dried out from lack of hormones, I think I would have cried!!!

    And, it's weird, but I have the same bust and the same planter!!! I love that you didn't throw her out - she still has a lot to give.

  15. She is certainly a beauty. I'm thinking that my face is going to be full of cracks and crevices like that someday and I hope I am still seen as lovely just as she is.

    Blessings to you today, Amy
