Make Me A Princess!!!

I am the ugly stepsister...I want to be a princess! My wish came true...with a little help from my fairy godmother!
I love my new black and white toile...
And a new home in the pink princess room!
Hope ya'll enjoyed my fun makeover project!
We've had some incredible Tennessee sunsets lately. I thought I would share some pictures of them.

Summertime And The Living Is Easy

Hope ya'll are having a wonderful first week of summer! The heat has been driving me indoors, except in the early evening. Rachel and I go out each night at twilight to watch the dance of the fireflies! They are just magical, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching them. I have been spending some time in my studio working on pillows for Rachel's pink room. The first one is made with little ruffles...
The second one... And the third, I couldn't resist using the pink ric-rac trim! Rachel was given a promotion at work on Monday - Congratulations to her for all her hard work! Being her proud mama and all, I just couldn't help but give her these!
Pink roses for a pink girl! You should smell the roses! Amazing, since most roses are bred without any fragrance nowadays.

Well, I'm off to exercize and then my morning mocha soy latte.
Hope ya'll have a wonderful day.

A little weekend project...

Hope y'all had a relaxing and fun weekend. You may recall when last summer we redid Rachel's bedroom. (See her bedroom here and here ) We found the perfect chandelier, but it was too much at the time. Fast forward to May, and her birthday...guess what one of her gifts was? Yep, the much coveted chandelier. The poor little box has been sitting there for over a month now, just waiting for it's place in the pink boudoir! This weekend we made plans for the little beauty, here is the before ...(sorry, I meant to take a picture before we removed the offending light fixture!) And wa-laaa!! Every girl's dream, a sparkly pink and white petite chandelier. Here is the happy birthday girl modeling it...
And a closer look - crystals and light pink teardrops that sparkle and shine! Isn't it fabulous?!

Thanks to Rachel for being my handy assistant (and now she knows how to install a light fixture too!). Have a wonderful week!

Baby, it's hot!

It's been heating up here in Tennessee this week! It's been in the low 90's a couple of days. Luckily it cooled down for a few days, but now it's back in the upper 80's. I am so thankful for my air conditioning!

I've been luxuriating in my cool sewing room and this is what I've been up to...

A new pink dress, complete with ruffles (this dress makes me happy!). A cute little handbag made from some vintage barkcloth. I can't decide if I want to keep the lace or not!
What have you been up to?
I think I'll grab a glass of sweet tea and go find some shade in the backyard...thank goodness I already mowed the lawn...hmmm...that hammock looks awfully inviting!
Have a good week! And keep cool!
Love and hugs,
Victoria Lynn
