ANTHRO Winner & Vintage Cherub Inspiration

Thank you my friends for all of your visits to view my Shabbyfufu Studio! I am truly honored to have met so many new friends all over the world and to have inspired those who love a soft romantic feminine style in their decor. I must admit......my studio is DEFINITELY the most feminine room in the house, since it's the only one that is ALL MINE!

I will announce the winner of the Anthropologie giveaway below.

It's been a bit of a rough week in our household with some family things going on. Suffice to say that I always have faith that things happen for a reason and work out for the best:-).

On a more cheery note........
It's no secret that I love Cherubs.....and they certainly do provide some cheer when you need it. Today I went around and shot a few photos for you.

These images are from a series of antique French Limoges plates that I have from 1901 that are all hand painted. A treasure.......

You may have seen this before if you have read my blog for any length of time. It's from an 1800's French cherub painting that I have which is totally tattered and loved....

An antique French child's bed headboard with cherubs, just propped against a wall. I have collected for a long time and these days you just don't see some of the pieces I am fortunate to have around anymore....

Around the pool there are various vintage statues, which of course includes a few cherubs.........

Now to announce the winner of the $50 Gift Card from Anthropologie!

Thank you for the comments, Tweets on Twitter, Facebook posts and emails. You guys ROCK!!!

Random.org chose # 35, which is Elizabeth (no blog). Please contact me Elizabeth through my website Contact page and send me your email!

I will do another giveaway on the blog soon......

Have a great weekend....lots of love from here~
xoxo, Janet

Congrats to Elizabeth, what a lucky lady. Love the cherubs, every single one of them! I'm with you, Janet... everything happens for a reason, some times, it just takes us a while to realize there's a lesson in it all.
