Perfect afternoon for a nap.

 My husband and I went to NYC over the weekend and I got the Petticoat Table cloth from Shabby Chic! It's so beautiful, I just wanted to play with it all day. I'm not sure if it will ever make it to the dining room table! Soo feminine and full of ruffles!!


 I got this vintage satin prom dress at Brimfield over the summer; more ruffles!

 I especially love the silver threading.




 I got this chair from a dear friend many years ago, it's one of my favorite pieces.



Thank you for visiting and hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Pink roses on my mind as we brace for a Noreaster in October!!


 My Prada loves to be in the pictures.

 Trying to figure out the best lighting.

Seashells and roses.

Pretty pink vintage soda bottle.








Oops!  My sister told me there was a Target bag in the first shot, I'm new to this and I was just so excited to put picture in the blog.

Hope everyone is having a good September.

Rainy days...

I thought today would be a good day to get back to my blog. I am a procrastinator and so much has been happening in my life since my last entry.

I'm showing before and after pictures of the spare bedroom in my house. Everytime I walked by the room it looked so dark and drabby.

I wanted something that would make me happy when I walked by the room.

My husband and I painted it PINK!! I love it so much, the whole mood of the not only the bedroom but the whole upstairs has changed.

I was so so tired of this wood bureau, but it had sentimental value and I could not part with it. I finally painted it and now I have a whole new look going on, love it!!
Adding the "final touches" is my favorite part.
I started with the pink alabaster vase, a gift from my husband. He got it on Ebay, how did he know I had wanted one forever? He's so good to me.
I'm mad about Shabby Chic design books and magazines. I love collecting them sometimes buying more than I have time to look through. I am always turning to different pages to compliment my latest and greatest theme of the day.
 Here I opened to one of my favorite Rachel Ashwell books to a page that looked perfect in my new vignette.
The pink lace cami is a recent purchase for me and my bedroom, I love displaying pretty things and when I can wear them too, what a treat!
