Spring Style Copy Cat Party!

I love Debbiedoo's Magazine Copy Cat Party!
My goal is to copy something without buying anything...
just shop my house
I found the perfect photo in the March 2012
Southern Living Magazine
I decided I could do the 'spirit' of this using my own favorite colors of spring
This is my version
I inherited these gorgeous pearls
The Joy bottle was a gift from a long ago boyfriend and my only bottle of French perfume!
Used beaded bracelets instead of bangles
pretty stationary and a google pen
I also used a pretty paperweight instead of another perfume bottle for that glass element
My version again
Southern Living version
I'm happy with my copycat! 

Please go visit Debbiedoo's and see what great copycats live in blogland!

Hugs,
Linda

WOW, this one caught my eye Linda. I LOVE yours much better.
Those pearls are like mine. I bought a long string like that 30 yrs. ago. They have a great texture and colour. Of course they are a "copy cat" version, lol.
Soooo Joy from an old beau huh? I bet you'll never throw that one out. I have some bottles of French perfume from my mom. I have them on a little shelf in my bathroom. I look at them all the time. She LOVED her perfume. She was a CHANEL girl, then she discovered OSCAR.
I'm lying low these days. I have a damn obstruction in my intestine. Not funny at all. I have to drink this "goop" stuff 3x a day. I'm feeling a little better today, but it's been rough.
Snow is melting, river is trying to flow. I think we reached 50 today. That's huge around here, lol. Of course the dogs all come in with wet paws. Here comes spring.
Loved your "copy cat" Linda.
Hey what did you think of the "bachelor" last night?? Then to find out he bailed on her when he saw her true personality during this whole process!!! Whatever!!
Love ya
Love me
