Sweetly Ruffled For Spring

My decorating style is
pretty traditional.
It's a bit eclectic with
things gathered over the years.
My husband likes neutrals
so I have soft, muted tones
with pops of color here and there.

But....there is something I
just love to look at.
It is the ruffled, romantic look
that draws me in...
the feeling of something that is
 girly and pretty.
Sooooo....
When I happened across
a blog called
my mouth dropped open.
This is for all
 you lovers of 
shabby sweetness and ruffles.
Don't you love it?
You can click HERE to go THERE!

Make sure you don't start looking
too early-or you will miss church...
and if you look too late you will
be up half the night.
Don't ask me how I know that, m'kay?
Make sure you scroll through
lots of her posts...there is
something wonderful in each one.

Well, I did all the hard work searching
for you-
Anything else I can help you find?
Huh?  Is there?
Like I have to find my husband's keys
after I have looked high and low
for the coat
he can't find...you know...like that.
he apparently left at the office 
along with his glasses..yeah....

Have a wonderful, blessed Sunday!

  3. Such a pretty style. Isn't it wonderful when you find a blog that really speaks to you, that you can get lost in for hours? I could pretty much do nothing all day except read blogs - so much inspiration out there!

  9. So pretty - I just found a booth in antique mall and everything was white, ruffly and sparkly - I was drooling over the beauty! To answer your question, yes I know BJ well...and watched as her husband built the shelf - he is so talented - and it looks EXACTLY like MCs! She has some beautiful B&W accent pieces and if I lived near her, I would just "drop by" daily for one of her baked goodies!! Enjoy your day!

    I have visited Sweet Melanie's blog and had fallen in love with all of her decor. She has made her home so lovely and cozy.
    I am sorry I haven't visited much...for one thing I am still having a hard time with my blogs that I follow come up so I can visit. Also been busy with some other stuff...life is never simple for me :)
    Enjoy your day!!!

  28. I love this white and ruffled gorgeous look, but my hubby is more the wood color English style, therefore, we're in between. I admire this romantic decoration, myself. I'm gonna visit her too. Thank you for sharing. Have a terrific week, pretty lady.

  40. Tian and I were just talking about you this past weekend...and how odd it was for us to meet eachother in blog land. Not knowing that we had a common connection...isn't life just amazing and good when God is in it?! Thanks Diana for your sweetness, I appreciate you so much!
