Hi Mari, hey girlfriend, I was just at Home Goods yesterday and didn't see this. What a treasure you found. I did find a cupcake stand, but yours is just beautiful. I love what you did with the paint. It will be so pretty and festive all dressed up with treats during the holidays. Yummy too, Char

I don't think I have ever seen one of these before. I love it and you did a great job painting it. We have a Home Goods and you can always find such pretty and different things there. I just picked up a few Waterford Crystal Ornaments at fantastic prices!

Dearest Mari,

Just a big hug for Veterans' Day as I just found out how your loved ones contributed to the many freedoms that so many seem to take for granted these days!
At least both my husband and I are mighty proud of all those brave men and women!!!

Lots of love,

Hi Mari Sweetie...
Oh my gosh, I write this through tear stained eyes. I love your little secret, and we just knew, knew, knew that Cindy was still there, just waiting to come back to us. Keep smiling sweet Cindy and moving, we are continuing our conversations with God to bring you back to sweet Mari. She has never given up on you, and our prayers have been many.

Oh Mari. Yes, we are SO thankful. Please, keep me posted sweetie, and I will continue to storm the heavens with prayers. She is going to come back to you. Praise God.

Oh and before I forget, I love this cake stand and what you have done with it. I can't envision the silver at all when I see what a beautiful job you did with the white. You have so many talents sweetie. So many.

Have a gorgeous weekend. Email me with any news please. Here it is:

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Hi Mari,
WOW the cake stand is gorgeous. You did a beautiful job of transforming it from silver to this beauty. Love the crystals.
What fun you and your mother must have shopping after church. Girls after my own heart!!
You have inspired me to make a run over to Home Goods. I always find something great there too.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind words. Blessings to your kids who have served in the military too. They are to be honored.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Hi, looks beautiful that pedestal, I imagine how beautiful look to the table where you place it, lovely blog! Rose Marie greetings

Char said...

Ok Mari, I am back again and stalking that sweet treat pedestal. I just know one of those beauties will show up here at my local Home Goods one day.....booo hooo, Char

luluslovlies said...

Love that cupcake stand, don't you all love that Home Goods Lol, store! I could shop there every day but then we would have No food on the table! Looks wonderful!

Miss Rhea said...

Oooh, That is adorable !!! You did a great job transforming it. I have one kinda like that, just the center part and not the little stands all around, but ran out of crystals to hang on it, so I am inspired by yours and will put swags around and then I wont need as many crystals !! :) I will have to send you a picture when I am done :) I have your wee plate with the stand listed in my shop if you still want it. If you dont or want me to hold it longer that is fine. :) Happy Weekend sweet girl !! :)
Hugs :) :)

ps, My Mom and I go "Running" that is what we call our shopping sprees, lol !! She will call and say, lets go runnin' tomorrow :)

Roselle said...

Hi Sweet Mari:
I LOVE this....amazing transformation! Our Home Goods had these too and I know what "ugly" silver you are taking about LOL
So sweet that you go to Mass and then shop with your mom. I bet we will be seeing plenty of pretties coming up for the holidays from you!

Hi Mari! Your cake/cupcake stand turned out sooo beautiful! I don't know where you are on Long Island, but I just discovered the Home Goods in Commack, and so far it's the best I've been in. Usually I go to the one in Syosset, but Commack is AMAZING! Have a fun Sunday with your mom tomorrow! ;) Paulette

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Hi Mari, Girl, you remind me of Sweet Tanza in so many ways. Anyways, I do the same thing getting the piece the way I want it and sometimes don't even bother to get the before shot. I really like your cake stand and with the added sparkles to it of course.

Big Hugs*

Sounds like a great Sunday--worship and then fun time invested with family.
