Beautiful Keepsakes

A floral ring made of shells shows off one of my favorite colors; orchid.

I wanted to share this wonderful hand painted dish with you.  It was one of my finds at an antique store years ago.

It is embellished in gold and strewn with flowers and garlands.  I especially adore the little angel.  It is unmarked so I really cannot pin point it’s age.

The picture above shows the unusual shape of this precious dish.

This vintage French Holy card shows a beautiful autumn view of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes and when translated it says, “Go tell the priests to build a chapel here and we will come in procession.”

Another old Holy card of St. Therese of the Child-Jesus.  It was also made in France.  I adore how the angels and the roses surround her and she is one of the reasons I have named my blog “Rose Petals from Heaven”. 

One of her famous quotes is, "My way is all confidence and love”.

My jewelry box key added a nice touch to this photo session.

My translation is:
The Lord forgives relentlessly,
For small, the humble of heart;                                                     

In the sheath (or covering) of His gentleness.

This vintage card has real flower petals on  it and  is translated to  “Flowers of the Holy Land”.  A very simple card with a beautiful message.
