little treasures and flowers

                                                               hello there!

  found this cute little wooden caddy yesterday at Typo... perfect for flowers and pretty glasses..


will be doing some sewing this weekend; a couple of pillow slips and a ruffled table runner!

I also got these soft hand towels with the tassels from Paris.  Just in a grocery store.. no where special!

Have lots of pink roses from a bridal bouquet I made at college the other day...  I always keep them for home after I have played with them for a bit!
I also got a couple of cute little glazed dishes for candles and my favourite vanilla bean candle.. smell good enough to eat!

Have to find somewhere to hang this picture...  cant decided on where to leave it.

Had a few hydrangeas left from last week; they lived a lot longer than I  expected!

The floral pillow above was also a flea market find in France... love the muted colours!
I have a busy weekend lined up; hope you all have a great weekend too!

    She’s right, I'm really impressed with the writing and slick design. It appears to me you’re just scratching the floor by way of what you'll be able to accomplish, but you’re off to a great

  6. Hi Laura,
    Love the towels, and to have made a French market purchase in France does not surprise me. I so wish our markets buyers made more european selections stocking the shelves here.
    The pink of your roses set the tone for all thing Romantic cottage chic and how beautiful it is here.
