Pretty Overload....

Once again I'm looking at all the things that make me happy. I love being surrounded by beautiful things.  I don't mean expensive things, just pretty stuff that makes me smile. Sometimes when I'm in the zone of  "pretty overload"...  I feel like I've discovered a secret that no one else has unlocked.  Of course they have.... but for the moment some beautiful things belong only to me....

But today I'll share them...

Lovely vintage slips and gowns, pink roses and an enamel pitcher....

Lots and lots of pillow loveliness...

Wedding gowns and flowers....

We bloggers love our mannequins....right Carol !!

 Shabby chippy shutters....

Pink mercury glass and cabbage rose print pillows...

I could go on and on....but enough sensory overload for now.

What prettiness makes you tell.

Can't have too much of the pretty stuff! I went back a couple of posts, and I'll say it again, what I'd give to live close so I could come to your shop! Pure delight!

All your pretties are making me happy right now:) I love anything with ruffles--pink and aqua, florals...white linens. It is wonderful how pretty things can be so reasonably priced:)

I love everything you have shown. It's like a wonderland of softness and pastel beauty. You have a knack for showing the things I think of when I dream of nourishing and uplifting surroundings!

Good Evening Sissie Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this evening. I love all your pink a licious lovelies. The pillows, the lovely wrap around your mannequin, I am still searching for Ms Minnie something of the sort. (It's out there I just have to find it.)

My favorite of course was the pink mercury glass along with those gorgeous cabbage rose pillows. LOVE, LOVE those.

Thank you for sharing sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Dropping by here always gives me a dose of pretty. No one does it quite like you...nothing fussy, just luscious pink.
Those slips are fab!
