A Peek Inside

Pretty Things Past April 01 2016, 0 Comments

I recently had cause to go back through some old images of things I've had and sold in the past (stored on Photobucket), and decided many of them are worth sharing and looking at again! Because so pretty. 


Sold in 2008, this luscious 1960s pink heavily beaded gown was one of my faves!

Deep into yet another Polar Vortex here in Iowa with near 50 below zero wind chills! Winter always feels loooong in the Midwest and one of the things that makes it most tolerable is garden seed catalogs and planning for Spring Flowers. And adding bright floral prints to the website! Like this 1940s sequined scarf...




Another (more recently acquired) winter day pastime is Pinterest! Especially now that I've taken up baking. Cupcakes I can make but the decorating is a challenge. Hours spent ogling images and recipes on Pinterest I can easily manage….



There's something irresistable about an abundance of pink flowers…..no?



(Erwin Blumenfeld, 1955)
