Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

Diamonds are becoming my best friend. Actually, not the kind you are thinking of. These diamonds are brilliant are fun to own, but I only have one of these true diamonds,  it's on my left ring finger. Don't need more, don't want more. The kind of diamonds I am seeking are  found in decor stores like those below. Yep, I've got my eyes on those, but this was discovered slowly. I have had a crippling fear of decorating most of my life. But, little by little I am venturing out to buy one or two items to bring me out of my shell. I've discovered a pattern; I like diamonds. I like them a lot, but didn't realize it. I knew I liked chickens, but was unaware that I had a thing for diamonds too.
I found this pretty tray at T.J. Max. Fearing rejection and afraid I'd made a mistake, I boldly hung it on the wall, and nothing bad happened. I hung a wreath over it and slid a table under it, and it looked pretty good. In fact I smile when I pass by this vignette.
It has diamonds woven throught the pattern. 
Fearing I wasted money I still put this candle holder on the shelf with my beloved chicken. I liked it and later noticed it had diamonds on the red glass.
This is one of my favorite garden benches and here are the diamonds again.
I loved this rug for the chickens on it and realized it too had diamonds. "Duh!"
My, oh so dear,  favorite chicken has diamonds near his feet.
I am drawn to this window and take many of my photos near it.
I bought this planter and didn't even notice the diamonds until later. I just knew I loved it. How come I'm so thick and didn't realize this at first? Silly me.  I know I'm becoming braver with my decorating, step by step. I'm happy to report that the fear is dwindling and the joy of decorating is taking its place. I think it is because I've started buying the things I truly like. Also, a tip for those who share my ailment, become fearless. The walls will not fall down just because you hung a picture. With each successful attempt, creativity blossoms.  I will be sharing more of my hand at decorating in future posts. 
Blessings, Kathi
" the court of the garden of the king’s palace. There were white and blue linen curtains fastened with cords of fine linen and purple on silver rods and marble pillars; and the couches were of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of alabaster, turquoise, and white and black marble." Esther 1:6-7
