Feeling Frenchy and Glamorous!

Bonjour Bloggerettes!

Are you feeling "frenchy" today?   Well, I know you are, and so am I !!

My sister gave me this idea.  She saw some pillows similar to these, so I added the script image and came up with this.....

I ordered the script image from Graphiquesepia's etsy shop.

I plan to make more and put them in my booth for sale.

Now for the piec'e de resistance....

I'm telling you girls,when I saw this I can swear that the sky opened up and beams of happiness fell down upon me!  I love it.  Did I say I love it....really, really love it!!!  I'm such a glamour puss!

That's all I have for today.  I am working on some paint projects I plan to show you later in the week.

My Sister left this morning and I miss her already.

You and your sister look very much alike, Sissie! Now, is this the sister you went to Home Depot with that time and "you know what" happened you were laughing so hard? : ) Wow, I love that script on the pillows. I have tw really big bolsters that need something; that could be it. I'll have to check that etsy shop out.

Ooh la la! Loving those pillows! So pretty and that mirror is to die for! Sister time is so great isn't it? When we're younger we can't stand each other but when we're older, we relish the time together!


trash talk said...

First...could you and your sister be any cuter? the pillows...y'all make a good team.
Third and most important...I am willing to pinky wrestle you for that find! Is it a vanity or table top. It's gorgeous.

CHERI said...

Hi, Sissie...I've been away from blogging for awhile (just got burned out & nothing to write about) but I have SO missed you. I just love your blog and all your frilly things. Love the bolster pillows but the mirrow is to die for! Both definitely have your signature! I need to catch up on reading your blog and see what's been going on. Seems like the last time I read it you were going to sell your home...or did I dream that??? Take care. Hopefully I won't stay away so long this time.

Love the graphics on these, Sissy! What a clever idea. My daughter recently gave me some flour sack tea towels she made for me with graphics similar to these. It's making me want to try this techique more. Thanks for the inspiration!
