Happy Bastille Day to any of my French readers! Here are some lovely festive pics, celebrating this beautiful and inspiring country!
Need a French shopping fix? Mai, oui! Check out these Bastille inspired Etsy Treasuries!
Have a gorgeous weekend! We are off on a camping trip…I’m a little nervous because I was 15 the last time I slept in a tent! Hoping for beautiful, sunny weather and minimal interactions with spiders. (I’m a total arachnophobe.) Wish me luck.
The countdown is on and the Royal Wedding is just around the corner! Excited! I can’t help it. In fact, I couldn’t resist this sweet little mug from this Etsy shop…
and I’m so tempted to get this tote…*sigh*…I’m such a sucker for romance.
I’ve accepted the fact that I won’t ever get that gorgeous sapphire ring but these will do nicely…
What about some decorations…this Union Jack bunting is darling…
And I just love this print…
Every girl should own a crown…why not wear it around your neck? It’s more subtle, really.
Look at this lovely little necklace…
Ooh and remember that gorgeous cobalt blue dress that Kate wore when they announced their engagement? Get your own version here. Perfectly lady like.
Okay…just one more…have sweet dreams of your own prince on this precious handmade pillow…
Have a beautiful Thursday my friends. Will you be watching the big event?
Okay, I had to share all these beautiful painted faces from Grace’s b’day party…they are too cute!
Such lovely princesses were in attendance! Of course, the birthday princess decided she didn’t want her face painted! Perhaps, she felt it would have detracted from her tiara…who knows? I thought it best not to argue with her. She seemed to just love watching her friends have fun.
Her pre-school set up the most gorgeous tea room for her. Unfortunately, I forgot my bounce flash so the photos turned out terrible. So sad. Instead of looking at my blurry photos (I have SO much to learn!) let’s take a peek at this gorgeous princess tea party…wow…
