Angela even signed her page for me ;)
Have you ordered or received your copy yet?
Are you in LOVE too?

Now I want Fifi to come out with her second Romantic Prairie Style ;)

~Slowly but surely~

(A vignette with pretty tulips)

Slowly but surely I am getting back into my normal routine
My husband has been taking such good care of me since I had my procedure
He has been making all of the meals,cleaning the house and doing loads and loads of laundry
He even made a cozy bed for me downstairs and placed the pretty pink tulips (in photo)
and a favorite candle of mine next to me on my nighstand while recovering
I thought that was so sweet of him
He said today that he is actually looking forward to going back to work tomorrow
 (with a smirk on his face)
That must mean that us stay at home moms do ALOT of work
I am very thankful for my husband and I am going to miss him taking care of me ;)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend friends
 Thanks so much for all of your nice comments and well wishes from my last post
I will be visiting your blogs soon

~ A few days ~

(A little peek of a new vignette on my mantel using antique French papers and a few of my favorite things)

I will be away from blogging for just a few days
Without going into too many details, I am having an elective procedure today
I will miss your beautiful blogs and sweet comments in the meantime
Have a wonderful weekend friends

~ Ruffles ~

I love anything with ruffles

So when I went to Old Navy this weekend and found this ruffled bag
I had to have it
And for only $12.50
I bought it in black too

It is the perfect bag for Spring/Summer
I wanted to let you know about the clearance on these pretty bags at Old Navy
so you dont miss out
Because Im sure you love ruffles and a good deal too! ;)

~ Lavender Lace ~

Since a few of you have inquired about the lavender color I painted my home office
here is the information ;)
Lavender can be a tricky color to choose and I am extremely happy with the Lavender Lace by Behr

A little peek of some things I have found for the new home office/guestroom in progress
(my post from yesterday goes into more details)

Let me know if you decide to use the Lavender Lace in any of your rooms
I love it
