Pretty Girlie Things and the CSN giftcard winner.

Hi Bloggerettes!
Let's talk about Pretty Girlie Things.  This is my bathroom vanity and it's where I sit every morning to transform myself !  Well, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  And you know what, some days are just a total waste of make-up.  (oops, I digress).

I like to see my favorite things around pictures of my Mom and sisters, sweet little gifts and trinkets, know.

It seems as though everyone is collecting clocks these days.  That's why I can't find them.  But, I do have a few......

I have never been a minimalist and I'm not about to start.  But, there is just something about this sweet pillow I made, sitting on this bench that says, enough already!
Nope, I can't do it.
It needs something more....

Still not enough....needs more stuff...

Much better....ahh..........I'm happy now or at least for today!

Oh by the way, I need to tell you who the winner is of the CSN $60. gift card giveaway.  It's LuLu Kellogg, Coastal Sisters !!
Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned because there just might be another one soon.

You go girl! Sometimes too much is NOT enough! Your bathroom mirror area is so beautiful. I can see why it's your favorite spot!

Oh Sissie, I just love all your sweet girlie things, and your collection of clocks. I love vintage clocks and have a small collection of them myself. Your header looks wonderful, and love that gorgeous pillow. I know what you mean about having to have alot of stuff, I don't have any more room in my house for anything, but I continue to buy! hugs~~~ Daphne

Hi Sissie,
I adore your Venetian mirror! I see that you even wear pink perfume :) And the sitting area is prefect! The cloches are wonderful and so are your lovely pillows!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Well congrats to LuLu! Lucky girl! : ) I love your vanity and I feel the same way some days. Those are the days I wish I could just cut two eyes out of a brown bag and wear that over my head! Love your bench, Sissie. Did you make the picture over the bench {the framed writing}?


What a gorgeous vanity! I do believe you are living in every girl's dream house.
