I was just thinking that perhaps I'm in a rut. I've thought that before..but have no desire at all to get out of it. I love roses but don't really wear a lot of pink..or rose prints.
It just seems to be something I am drawn to.
My little bitty bathroom that is just mine alone, is STUFFED with roses..
the walls are pink..a soft pink. The camera makes them darker..but they are really a light soft pink.
..and yes, I use this for my hair..just like my Grandma did! I always told her I was going to do that some day and wear my hair just like hers and I am. (she would love that!)
Even the light switches through the house are handpainted with roses.
Many of my hand painted items are from ebay artists..
Roses and Relic's is one artist I love...
My little laundry bag was found on ebay by a wonderful seamstress..as was the hand towels..all embellished by different seamstresses..
I have recently become an OPI fan. I do not usually polish my fingernails..because they chip and it seemed a waste of time. THEN I discovered OPI.
A base coat..my favorite color and a top coat and a full month of lovely nails.
I am HOOKED!
To be honest..the names of each polish made me giggle..and that's how I got hooked at first.
Now...just for drill...imagine a 76 (77 shortly) year old woman with ..(haven't used the PINK one)
"blue" fingernails??? I only tried it on. I was afraid folks would think I had ...you know...
So...NO MORE BLUE!
Simply Shabby Chic containers that used to be sold at Target some years ago.
I like them as much now as I did back then. The cup? Hand painted by someone and sold at a garage sale. The clock? Who knows..tiny ring holder..garage sale item. Shelf by Bea @ Roses and Relic's on ebay.
The collection of scented strawberries were handmade by a sweet woman on ebay who is no longer around. :( So many artists come and go..
I feel fortunate to still have Rebecca @A Gathering Place, in my life. Her hand painted roses are amazing too.
(I know, I know. This was a BORING POST..but..I'm peddling as fast as I can! :):)
