A Necklace to Wear on the Grand Tour.....

I won a beautiful necklace at the 9th hour of the One World One Heart giveaway in February.

It was made by the lovely Denise Tucker. She is an author and jewelry maker.

Denise use the book "French Inspired Jewelry" by Kaari Meng It was so generous of her...thank you Denise!!!



I feel like the most elegant French Princess is this necklace. I am going to take it to Europe with me...it is my little secret...to wear it ....and feel so romantic....from another time of my dreams....I bought our airline tickets yesterday.....Bath England to Tuscany Italy...with about 10 days in Austria/Germany...10 days in England and 10 days in Italy...with a tiny trip into France from Germany....a 6 weeks.....Grand Tour....!!!!
This is my bedroom....it reminds me of Paris, Bath and Venice...I love the new little mantel I bought...and the etchings from the late 1700's & early 18 ths...one little drawing is from a shop in Oxford.....I have women on one side and men on the other....I decorate with things from my trips.....so the romance is always with me....

The trip sounds absolutely wonderful. I know there will be work involved but the thought of being in Tuscany! I love Europe. I'll be in Ireland in June. Your necklace is beautiful. It matches your bedroom as well.

I'll take notes at the workshop... Hopefully my very 'buzzy' brain can retain some good info!

What a lovely prize! And the Venetian influences make me so happy I'm doing a photo workshop there in less than three months.

Hi Deirdra,
I love your pretty necklace! That mantel is lovely in your room. I don't think Igot back to you after the last email. I booked the tickets and will see you there! I will drive and then I can bring lots of dolls to show you! It is Medora L Byron who I bought from Dame Darcy-she is very sweet and arrived safely!
