A beautiful PINK win....

HELLO, DOLLS....
I won the most beautiful
necklace.....THE QUEEN'S ROSE
and I just could hardly wait to share the photos of this beautiful piece 
with YOU.


KAREN was host to the giveaway from  SHABBY APPLE........
"thanks so much, Karen."
When you go over to see Karen, please tell her bj said HEY.
Karen has a beautiful blog...you will enjoy it...
AND............
If YOU get a chance, you should check out SHABBY APPLE.
They have some amazing products that you will totally love, I'm pretty sure. :)
I seldom buy jewelry for myself...I don't know WHY 'cause I love wearing it.   The next time I get the urge for a new piece, I'll be checking out SHABBY APPLE.
I've already seen several things there that are going on my WANT LIST.
 

This beautiful necklace is a light salmon/pink color
that will go with just about any thing....smashing on a black top or dress....beautiful on white.

It's a Cameo type setting.....set in silver tones....

OOO, ya wanna see it on a NECK....??

Well, MY neck is waaaay too wrinkled to put on a post for the whole world to see.....
so I once again called on
LADY  LUSCIOUS to model this pretty piece....
"Lookin' good, Lady Luscious....
tell me......what is your secret for NEVER AGING ???????"
"What's that you say.....?.......you think the necklace is a little long for you?"
♥ ♥ ♥
It's adjustable .....
it hangs on an 18 inch silver chain......and it looks good while it's doing it. !!
And, I don't care WHERE it's hanging...on a wrinkled neck or a luscious neck,
it is indeed, a beauty.
Thank you so much, KAREN.....I just love it. ♥♥♥
Now this is a WINE CAKE I made and when I poured that 
BLACKBERRY WINE into my batter, it turned the most 
delicious shade of PINK....
If you will come by today, I'll give you a slice of
PINK WINE CAKE
and......
I'll even let you wear my beautiful THE QUEEN'S ROSE necklace
while you are eating CAKE.
SOOO, that means 
YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT, TOO.




I am joining

Lady Lucious looks "pinkalicious" as I'm sure you do also. It's a lovely necklace. The pink and silver candle is also a beauty.

Congratulations!! This necklace is going to be so pretty on you! I've looked at the jewelry on Shabby Apple and LOVE it!

The pink wine cake looks so pretty! How does it taste? I guess if you can use rum in a cake, you can use wine!!

Happy Weekend, BJ!
