~ Pretties..~



Hi friends
I hope your week is going great so far.
I took some photos of random pretties around my home.
My colour palette is alot of pinks,lavendar and pale blues.


Lovely millinery flowers in a clam shell



Shabby Chic Sacred heart and a pretty fleamarket find


I love collecting pretty antique books...they are in my favourite florentine bookends


I love using my antique french bottle carrier for holding / displaying flowers


My living room
Very light and simple.


My favourite piece...my Shabby Chic Rosary.
I know I share alot of photos of this on my blog but I just love it so.


Pretty pastels

Thanks so much for your sweet comments~ I love hearing from you.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! 
xo,
Rachel

Yesterday morning I was in our Target and the R.A Shabby Chic bath items are on clearance and I thought of you. I bought the white fleur d lys toothbrush holder and cup, a grey fleur d lys hand towel,and a white round bath mat. The pale pink hand towels were so pretty and hard to walk away from. If you lived near me I would of bought them for you! Don't you just love all the new R.A bedding for spring? I wish I could buy it all. ox
