One World One Heart Winner

Oh my.
Serendipity comes in many ways.
I have found so many new friends on this journey through Blogland.
Serendipitous event #1...
As I pulled the winning number from my mixing bowl I found the corresponding blog to be 
Bellamere Cottage. A blog I had not visited before OWOH but one that will be on my favorites list from now on.
Spencer and I share many things in common, I am so happy that my angel will reside in her home!
What fun this has been.
Serendipitous event #2...
As I propped my angel painting in the dining room (remember my dilemma from last post about the too serious feel of the room?)...
I found that my camera batteries were dead. As I stepped away to find more...none to be found BTW ...hence the old photo...
Smack my face and call me a genius!
The answer was right before my eyes.
Pale pink.
Yep, my new dining room color will be pale pink!
With all of the serious and stodgy brown and gold accessories and furniture, pink should perk things right up!
I just wasn't feeling the yellow, not with everything that had to stay in the room.
I can only hope my angel brings serendipity to Spencer and Bellamere Cottage just like she has for me.
Kind of a little going away present I do believe.

Yours in serendipity, P.
Pin It!
