Favourite things...

Hello peeps,

 Here is a little share of my fave things... (After my girls and hubby of course)...

 
           

 I just adore flowers, especially roses... Especially David Austin roses! From bud to falling brown petals, there is something eternally magical about the rose!
Fab shoes! Long gone are the days I tottered around in jimmy choos! Swapping them for a comfy pair of converse or battered uggs, but ohhh I have such a love for shoes! Especially shiny ones or ones covered in glittery things! Never been one for bags!
Gorgeous antique china... Has to be uber pretty and fine, and of the most delicate shades of pastel with a good amount of gold!
Costume bling! Always been a magpie for all that glitters and love costume jewelry and old marcasite brooches! Adore old diamonds and antique rings!
Painted furniture... In particular my Welsh dresser! I started painting furniture back in 2006 when I was a struggling single mother that needed to surround her girls with beautiful things! Never underestimate the power of good paint, old wood and a good cup of tea to make everything right in the world!
Why not share your fave, happy things... 


 Have a good wkend everyone!

BOOK REVIEW.. COUTURE PRAIRIE BY RACHEL ASHWELL

 Hello peeps,

Well it's been a while since we did a book review! I must say I did get a lovely load of books last Christmas, it's been a joy ploughing through them over the winter months! 
So here is a share of my favourite one!

Couture Prairie by Rachel Ashwell.

                             

 Oh my goodness where do I begin?...
Well here goes, this beautiful book is much more than a coffee table read, it's an inspiration!
Here, the queen of shabby chic, Rachel shows us around her gorgeous, luxuriously shabby B&Bs. Lovely old barns and fabulous rooms, set in Texas. The feel is opulent with a paired back style of fadded grandeur in an effortless shabby prairie style! Every page turn is a swoon of fabulousness, with gorgeous faded fabrics, old furniture in its naturally shabby style with old paint in beautiful tones gently chipping off!
All the rooms are furnished with an abundance of sumptuous bedding in Rachel's beautiful range of fabrics.
Her statement colour pallet of chalk pink, white and a hint of blue and grey give a calm feel and a natural flow throughout all the buildings!
The section on the flea market finds is simply stunning! And I just want to go!
Anyway, I could go on for pages but I won't! If you love shabby chic and gorgeous stuff then go and buy this book! You really won't be disappointed!

VINTAGE TREASURE

 Well hello everyone,

 I'm so sorry for my lack of blogging just lately! It has been manic! Last week I saw the launch of my
Online store and the response I've had has been fabulous! I thank all of you for being so supportive!
I adore vintage treasure and am a total hoarder of all things beautiful so I can say that at first I found it very hard to part with such pretty things, but when the thank you letters and the pictures of lovely purchases from my store rolled in I felt so happy that I'd sourced something with love and passed it on to a new owner who will cherish it just as much, it makes it all worth while!

Here are a few pics of what's gone to lovely new homes this week....

          Have a lovely wkend!

So I'm pleased to announce that Emma Connolly
