Starting the Week off right....

Is everyone ready to start off the new week with joy and enthusiasm.... of course you are! 
I'm starting mine off with some pink ruffles....what could be more fun than pink and ruffles....

To make them nice and puffy I added queen size pillows.

You might remember my bathroom bench....

Here's a little close up of the tray and its contents...

Everything that you see, including the tray were all found at thrifts and antique shops....

Look closely at this next picture.  Gizzy was pretty sure of herself that she was looking mighty fine trying to fit her puffy self into a small wooden tray. 
 I was trying to show the script pillow but my heart just melted when I saw how cute she looked.  I sure do love my little kitties.

Well that's it for now.  Get out there and make, create, sew, bake, paint, photograph, write and find something wonderful and share it with us!

I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

Gizzy sure has a mind of her own! She knows exactly what to do to be the star attraction. By the way, I do wish we had the thrift shops around here that you have around your place. You always find the most amazing objects! Lucky you!

Hello Sissie!

Love those big pink ruffles! Your bathroom bench is so beautiful and what a treasure trove of pieces you have displayed on that tray! Your kitty is so very special and obviously much loved! My kitty gets his picture taken so much...he usually finds his way into shots when I'm photographing for a blog post! Little hams!
Have a wonderful week!

Best Wishes and Blessings,

Love the shots of Gizzy! My beagle used to love riding up on the back dash of the car, she could fit up there fine as a pup, it got a little more... challenging... the bigger she got, but she was determined:@)

Debbie said...

That bench should be in a magazine, Sissie! It's so lovely.
Love the picture with your sweet kitty in the cute.

You had me at pink and ruffles, Gizzy is quite a character...So pretty, I adore my cats too. I hate to put you through a lot of of trouble, but when you rewrite your will, could you put that tray and the contents in it for me!!?


Mrs. Sutton said...

What a beautiful bench - I LOVE the colour! Your finds look amazing - like heirlooms that have been in your family for generations. I love 'finds' like that. What an inspiring ending to this post too - I certainly am inspired to go out and make, bake or create - thank you! Paula x

Michele said...

Sissy, I love your bench but not as much as I love your kitty. We have one that looks a lot like her in the face, but he is a big old male, named Junior.

Your blog is such a romantic trip through ruffles, lace and all things exquisite. It puts the old love song, "Sentimental Journey" going through my mind. I have enjoyed strolling along some of your past posts, simply gorgeous!
