Just a few pretty things...

So what do you post about
when you've had your sweetie-pie granddaughter
over for the past three days??

You post a few pretty things...

The beautiful room below is a magazine page I scanned ages ago ~
I've always wanted to drape fabric from the ceiling like this...
and the bunched up botanicals make me swoon.
And the column in the corner....EEEK!



Someone needed a vanilla album page
for their artwork and here's one I'd scanned in and shared earlier too.
(Please forgive me for forgetting who it was!)



I love this gorgeous old print I scanned a while back too....



Remember when I piled tons of gorgeous old lace on my scanner?
Feel free to click to enlarge these and save to your own computer...



So. Do you think I love sweet, old baby cabinet cards??
(grab them if you haven't already)













A Little News About Town:

Erica of Zunky Chic is having a 200th Post Giveaway HERE!!



I love blogging.
I love being here with you.
Even when I haven't done or made anything at all...
I always want to say hello...
and that I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

hugs and love,
Dawn

That rose picture is so soft and pretty - you can practically smell that citrus-y scent! Thank you, Dawn, for all your pretties.

Dawn, thank you for sharing those pictures. The roses are glorious and the lace...oh my! I can see this as a background for so many things! Beautiful!

And....in your post below...your peat pot turned out so sweet! I'm sorry I missed this yesterday. I sent my hubby to W-M to look for them and not a one was to be found. Must try the Agway next. Very inspiring post!

Hugs!

Hey Dawn...
You are going to laugh at this one but that picture you scanned is my old shop... from a Romantic Homes shoot I had in June of '99 I think!
It has been a few years but I did a double take when I pulled your post up. lol
I sold that comumn and wished I hadn't!!!
Many blessings to you
Rebecca

Oh sweetie, what beautiful images! That bedroom is my dream come true! Of course my husband would divorce me if I piled that much lace in the bedroom. That is really lace on your scanner, wow I've never tried that. Possibilites...I hope you have a great weekend. I've been hauling my stuff to Maureen's all day & nursing my mouth. Thought I give you a break from my moaning & groaning. Lisa

Hi dearest Dawn,
Isn't it funny how one little tiny body (grandchild) seems like ten. I have been spending a great deal of time with the little ones too and can't seem to get a thing done when they are here. It is always so much fun, but I do have to say that when they go home I sit and sigh and catch my breath a little.

I have been missing some great posts here at your place while I have been gone. You always share the loveliest things. I had to laugh when I saw your magazine page. I have the same one in my accordian file of favorite rooms. Do you think maybe we are twins separated at birth?
hugs to you this Saturday!

Jann said...

Hello to you, too! I hope you're having a good weekend--I know what you mean about having your granddaughter with you for 3 days--a wonderful gift, but I know why most women have their babies when they are young. I've been caring for 4 of my grandchildren this past week, not all at once, but I just don't have as much energy as I did when I was young, unfortunately--I haven't been able to do any art, but have enjoyed the kids. They are wonderful, but, boy am I tired!!!!!
