So after taping up the "feet" with paper and painter's tape...
I spray painted it with an almond color. (Pictures make it look white.)
Added some of my favorite "girly" things and several doilies ~ and Presto! An easy and quick metamorphisis!! :-)

Every Limoges needs a stage, so let's flip the cup over and start! :-)
This was the one that started my obsession! My mother gave this cutie to me for Christmas many years ago. I loved it's intricate detailing and the delicateness of it! I also couldn't stop opening and shutting it! Lol I had never heard of Limoges and knew I had to have more!
I knew my dh was the one for me when he didn't flinch at the price tag of $160.00 for this pretty little teapot! He bought it as a gift for me when we were first dating. :-)
Each Limoges is handpainted with it's own unique clasp~
And often has detailing on the inside too~
Isn't his little face cute?!
"Here kitty kitty..." :-)
The Holy Bible~
A precious angel given to me from my cousin~
A pretty purse. I love the little chain!
A sophisticated lady~
This is not a Limoges but he's an important part of my collection! My husband does a very good impersonation of the Cowardly Lion, my favorite character from The Wizard of Oz! :-)
A child playing with blocks. Notice the pretty bird clasp~
Can I offer you a glass? :-)
The granddaddy of them all!
The detailing is just beautiful! It's the most expensive one I have.
You will know a "real" Limoges by the marking at either the bottom or the inside~

My good friends Christine from Christine's Home and Travel Adventures and Athella from OCDesigner gave me the "Honest Scrap Award"! To receive this I must list 10 honest and interesting "scrappy" facts about myself and pass it on to six other bloggers. What a fun way to get to know a little more about each other! :-)
Okay, so here I go!
Now I'd like to pass this award on to:

Inside the beautifully wrapped box was the prettiest heart ornament I had ever seen! I was so excited that before I unwrapped the next gift I went running around my home to find the perfect stand for it!
Oh it's so pretty!!
Then I unwrapped the cutest dog figurine that looks exactly like my chocolate lab, Elmo! Dh likes him too! :-)
And the sweetest little bird! I wonder if Laurie knew I had a "thing" for birds?? :-)

All I ask of my youngest son is to pick up......HIS CHAIR!
