Stop and Smell The Roses

I love roses...and I love the way they smell.  I especially love the meaning of this saying. Unfortunately, I don't set aside time just for doing that and nothing else! 
We all have full plates at one time or another...sometimes we can't seem to ever get those plates clean!  Many of us are multitaskers much of the time!  But stopping and putting all aside for just enjoying the things around us in important!  Even if you have to "pencil in" time for "smelling the roses" we need to do that!
I love my's comfy and cozy and full of love with my two pups!  After a long hard day, I have a wonderful leather recliner sofa to plop down on to watch a little tv. I have a nice cozy bed to snuggle up in at night! I have decorated my little cottage to my heart's desire.  I rearrange and redecorate often because that's just who I am and what I love.

Handwritten Letters... A Lost Art...

I've been into interior decorating since I was a young girl.  My taste has changed over the many years...decades...but I've always had a LOVE for OLD things!!!

Any Day Can Be Christmas

....Even if it's Valentine's Day!
I found some of the greatest treasures this week for a little of nothing.  Every day can be Christmas when you find little goodies like this!  It doesn't take much to make me happy!
Look at this box!  Plain and simple, right???
OMG!!!  You can't even imagine what lies within!
Something so fragile...beautiful....delicately sweet...
Take a look and see why I squealed with delight when finding these!

Subscription Boxes....Do You Subcribe??

I have shopped a lot online the last few years.  I love having things delivered right to my door.  I shop from ZULILY quite often.  I have learned the brands that work well for me and are true to size....or if they don't, I know that I need to order accordingly.
I was introduced  to "subscription shopping" when I began selling Plunder Design.  We have a monthly subscription available....Plunder Posse.  Each month, you receive 1-3 pieces of jewelry at a flat tax or shipping.  I haven't been disappointed since I bought my subscription.  My February Posse is due to be delivered soon, and I can't wait.  How cute is that necklace and earring set?!?
Oh....but there are MORE...

Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder...

I'm pretty sure the title of this post is an idiom...Sorry, I've been teaching idioms to my fourth graders this week.  They are everywhere!  LOL

Anyway, I do believe that idiom to be true!  What I might find beautiful might be dreadful to some.  Personally I find anything  CHIPPY*SHABBY*PEELING to be glorious!  Let me show you what I mean......
How positively, imperfectly PERFECT is this door!?!
Let's see MORE...

No Fleas Today

Today was Flea Market Day. 
My bestie and I were looking SO forward to it since it had been a while since we had been.  We couldn't go on a Saturday this month due to my pups' obedience training, so we opted for Sunday.  We've been on a Sunday before, and it just wasn't as good...i.e. picked over, booths closing early, etc.  But we were all set to go...lists of hopefuls in hand....

Lovely Little Things

I have a HUGE love for little things!
And an especially HUGE love for lovely little things!
What do I consider, lovely little things, you ask? 
Well my beautiful lady's head in the above picture for one...simply lovely.
But let me show you more....
I adore vintage millinery flowers!  I created this little vase from beautiful old lace,
old jewelry parts and millinery flowers. 
Then, I stuck some -oh-so-perfect- little rosy flowers in the vase. 
Let's see some more...
