Just add a rosette!

When in doubt.....add a rosette! 

I found this plain white knit shoulder bag and decided it would look really pretty with a few rosettes. Hey, how could I go wrong for $3.00 !!!!   And, I think I'm right.......

I love this french wall basket.  I usually change it according to the seasons.  The problem is, I never hang it on the wall.  It always ends up on my entryway bench...

Some rosettes, some pretty flowers in a french basket.....makes this girl happy.  Ain't life grand !!!

Gabby thinks so.....

Hi Sissie!

I always love seeing what you're up to. The crochet bag is sweet, especially with the addition of the rosette. I really like that basket and I think it looks great on the bench. Isn't it fun when the sweetest things make us girls happy?!?

Have a good evening!

Love the rosette and the basket... Isn't it amazing how just a little touch like that, took the bag from cute, to everyone asking "where did you get that bag"!

I love the wall basket sissie. it looks cute on the bench~you can use a door hanger gizmo and hang it over a mirror in the house. I did that.

Oh Gabby!!! You camera hog! That is a great idea to put the rose on the bag, I am going to keep my eyes open, I don't usually look in the purse or bag section. PS: watch your mail box

Beautiful! It's amazing how a little embellishing can be the perfect remedy for something simple. Love it!

Sissie I'm so inspired every time I come by and visit. Love that French basket and all the pillows. Thanks for sharing.

T's Daily Treasures said...

That is a very pretty knitted shoulder bag. You could make rosettes in every color and pin them to the bag to change it up at your whim. Love the basket of flowers too. Another lovely find that is beautifully changed up with the seasons. Gabby found a comfy, cushy place to rest. Hope your weekend is wonderful. Tammy
