Floral Twins



My pink rose twins.
 

You see the little bird house in my neighbor's yard leaning against her shed?
 
 

 
Here are a few you might have missed because they posted wrong.
 
 

 
 

 
 
And finally have you ever had one of these days?
I found this at T. J. Maxx.

Summer Vintage Makeover



My master bed palette-before.
 

This is my master bed, now. The coverlet, the back king
size shams and the white shams in the middle are from
 the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target. The front
floral sham is from Rachel Ashwell's boutique line.

Does't this look like a delicious way to wake up
or go to bed with while watching TV. Bowl from
Home Goods.

This little rose can keep a 'Secret'.

Vintage Silver


This little silver tray from Tina
at The Enchanted Home is very versatile.
I bought the tray at her store on her blog.


The mirror is from Home Goods and the basket from Target. I like
how it all looks with my vintage silver and a pink rose from
my garden.

This sits on my vanity in my master bath. Earrings are made
with vintage faux gemstones.


I've been thinking of having a giveaway on my blog for a
 long time. I'm continually not encouraged with only 26
followers. I want to clelebrate other blogs and their
etsy shops and have a sprinkling of gifts from
 different shops.

Summer Beauties



This coral rose in my garden has a beautiful ombre effect.






Wouldn't this make a beautiful couture gown?


This looks like something to eat.









Shabby Chic on the vine.

Thank-you to Evi at Sexta-feira
for nominating me for the Liebster Award.
I will answer two questions about myself.
What my favorite all time song is and what
has made me cry recently.
When I watched the closing ceremony
of the Summer Olympics in London, I
cried when they played John Lennon's
"Imagine".  It's the ring tone on my cellphone.


Some green for Green Day at Fiona's.

Summer Vintage White

New vintage looking lamp from Pottery Barn.

Here it is in a better light, looking very shabby chic with
it's crinkled shade (my accidental doing).

My new quilted sham from the Simply Shabby Chic line at  Target.


This is my start to making my bed all shabby chic white.
The front two shams are from Pottery Barn Kids and the
round pillow is from the Simple Shabby Chic line at Target
as are the back two shams.

This is my shabby chic chandelier in my laundry
room with the swag. Altho, I have thought
of covering the swag, I won't . Covering the
 swag in the laundry room would be like
putting slipcovers on the washer and dryer.
