Ruffle Rage!

See this sweet graphic from Graphics Fairy, wait until you see what I am planning to do with it!......
It will have some of this....

Ooodles of these....
I plan to have this and some other projects done soon and then I'll show you.

Have you noticed that ruffles are all the rage....
Scarlett knew all about the charm of ruffles..........

Oooh......look at this..........


I want this...........

And this.....


Shower curtain from Anthropolgie...
So pretty!
and very, very expensive (sigh)

Tomorrow I'm going to meet my Sister and Brother for
some serious Brother and Sister time.
We are planning to shop til we drop and
will be spending Saturday at the Raleigh,NC
flea market!!! woohoo!!!

I want to thank all of you blogerettes for your sweet messages and encouragement regarding my last post.  You are all so wonderful and made me feel so much better.  The lady didn't return
to the shop today, but I've decided to let it go.
I love and adore you all so much. 

~~hugs~~

Hi Sissie, I love ruffles too and the shower curtain is really pretty. Why don't you just buy an inexpensive plain white one and sew on some ruffles yourself?
Enjoy the time with your siblings and have fun at the flea market!
Hugs,
Julia

Crystal said...

Hello Sissie, this is my first visit to your blog, it is wonderful. Ruffles are resurging, back into popularity. I wonder if priscilla curtains will make a come back :)
Have you seen the ruffled t-shirts for this spring fashion season.

I will definitely be back and will follow.

Have a blessed week.

Gerry said...

A beautiful Canary pillow? Oh my! I will be back and see...Sissy, I did not post a comment yesterday on your post but I was thinking after I read it....It makes one feel good to give, it dissapoints one to lose accidently, but it just downright hurts for someone to take something from you, whether it be in a careless way or worse, intentional. You are right, however...in letting it go. Lots of love, Gerry

trash talk said...

Good to see that your not letting that incident ruffle your tail feathers.

Aw, man!!! Flea Marketing?? We have to wait until spring/summer and scoot over to Chicago. It seems like winter will never end!! make sure to take lots of pics so I can live vicariously! lol
Can't wait to see what you come up with with all that vintage goodness- I just love Graphic Fairy!

Lululiz said...

You are such a tease, showing us that beautiful image, and lace and ruffles and not telling what you are going to make!
Ruffles are rather pretty, the scarf for example is gorgeous.

Sissie,
I love all of the ruffles & can't wait to see the new pillow (come on, that' what it is right) your making. I'm going to email in a couple of days. I have an idea for duplicating the Anthro shower curtain & want to see what you think. Lisa

Terri Smith said...

Can't wait to see what you do with that Graphics Fairy image. Don't ya just love that site!

Lovin' those ruffles! Sissie, visiting your site is always such a pleasure. I can be in the worst mood and as soon as I step through your door, everything improves. Thank you for that because I know if I'm feeling it..so are others!

Blessings, joy and sunshine, Terri
