Pretties worth keeping...

Hi Bloggerettes!
Since I've been in the booth business, I've found so many beautiful things.  Most of the time I want to keep everything that I find, but I realize that I have to let it go.  Here are some of the pretties that I have collected over time and just can't seem to let go of right now.  So, I'll just save them for awhile. 
Pretty slips, gowns, prom dresses, wedding gowns......

 It's the girlie girl in me.........I just love all the ruffles, lace and trims.

We were fluffin up the booth and this metal garden table took front and center stage.  Again, I'd love to keep it for myself.

Here's the pretty pillow that I won from Ness's giveaway
I think it's perfect with my livingroom decor.

Well, that's it for today.  Now get out there and create, find, paint, repurpose, craft or photograph something lovely and share it with the rest of us.

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Beautiful frillies, Sissie. Your photos are so soft and lovely.

It must be difficult to part with some of these things for your booths, Sissie! I know I would have issues! : ) That table is great and your new pillow fits your chair nicely.

Nancy said...

Hello sweet Sissie!

Oh, I love pretty lace and things too! I have bought some vintage negligees, and baby dolls, and I can't part with them! I am on the hunt for a vintage pink prom dress too.


Char said...

So pretty Sissie. Yes, it's sometimes very hard to say goodbye to something. I remember finding a vintage Boyds bunny. Dressed her up and listed her, kind of hopeing she would not sell. Well, she did and off to her new home she went. I was happy for the sale, but sad to loose her. I went back to see if I could find another, but no, it was not meant to be. Like you, it's nice to enjoy a treasure for awhile and then let it go. You have so many beautiful finds, Char

Allison said...

The photos of the slips and gowns are beautiful, Sissie! I wouldn't be able to part with those either! I love Ness's pillow on your chair She does beautiful work. I'm happy you won her giveaway!

Karen said...

PRETTY THINGS! ooowwwww the ruffles and lace! But I have NO SPACE for them, and all the men in my life would have me committed if I started in with those too!
Love it all! Happy May! Karen

Mary Ellen said...

Sissie I love all the pretty slips and such! I wish my whole closet was full of frilly things though I am a tad too old to be wearing alot of it!

I so need to fluff my booth space- yours always looks so fantastic!! I sold my chandelier the other day and need to find something to replace it!! (sold it just in time to pay for the new crown I need on my tooth! too bad I couldn't have spent the money on something more fun!)

bee blessed

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

So beautifully romantic!

gretchen said...

your photos of the slips and flowers were greeting card beautiful!

Kathy said...

Pretty, pretty ....I love them too!
I wouldn't be able to let the table go...too cute and could be used in every room of my house and Porches!!!
Hugs, ~Kathy~ @
Sweet Up-North Mornings...

You find the most beautiful things Sissie and take the most inspiring photos!
Happy day!

I know what you mean, that is probably why we do well, because we don't sell anything we don't like. I love that iron table, yep know why you want to keep it. I had a lady in last week that was opening a boutique and cleaned me out she wanted everything for display.....Except the crummy table that still won't sell!!!


Anne Lorys - Fiona and Twig said...

It really IS so hard to let some stuff go, isn't it?

Love your frilly pretties and that fabulous pillow!


Low Tide High Style said...

I understand what you mean, it is hard to let some of the things we love the most go. My friends who have booths tell me the same thing!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Kat :)

It must be so hard to sell the pretty things you find. But having the booth does allow you the freedom to buy what you love without turning into a hoarder! :-) I can see why it's hard to part with all the pretty lace garments.

Sherrie said...

All the gorgeousness...*sigh*

Magdalene B. said...

goodmorning Sissie!beautiful stuff!
Και εγώ θα ήθελα να κρατάω όσα μου αρέσουν αλλά δυστυχώς δεν τα χωράει το σπίτι πια!!!keep going!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey Sissie! You are so fortunate because you can seek and find and keep then rotate things out through your booth when you need a little change up. Have a beautiful day! Tammy

Paula ~ castleandcottagesigns said...

So pretty Sissie~ I'd have a terrible time parting with such finds!

One Cheap B*tch said...

What a fabulous collection of slips! I have one hanging in our guest room and would love to add more!


designchic said...

Such gorgeous many pretties!!

Diane said...

How do you do it, Sissie, put things in the shop and not keep them? It's so hard! I always wonder that when I visit you and Barbara Jean because you both find the BEST stuff!
XO Diane
