Springtime Fashion 2012...fabulous Floral Print Shoes

We have been having some mild daytime weather here in Texas and it's giving me early Spring Fever!  These floral print shoes are truly fabulous! Oh-so-pretty for Spring and Summer!



Look at that heel!


Ahhhh...boat shoes.  I had several pairs of these in the 1980's, including a light pink pair which I wish I still owned!




A little over-the-top perhaps?  I love that floral print fabric! I would like these shoes better without the hearts...














Fabulous Betsy Johnson!



Sadly, these jazz shoes are no longer available...












Be. Fabulous!

My favorite flower? The rose...

It's another cloudy day and I wish the sun would come out!  I'm one of those people who really needs the sun to be happy.  I get depressed when there are too many cloudy days.  I could never live in Seattle.
 I have been thinking a lot about Spring...I want to plant rose bushes.  I haven't had rose bushes in a few years and it's time to plant them again.  I have a spot picked out but I need to make sure the sunlight is right.  I think there is enough room for 2 or 3 bushes.  I will be planning a trip to Lowe's or Home Depot soon to pick out my rose bushes.
Roses to cheer me up:





These look like the roses my husband sent my daughter for Valentine's Day!

















Have a fabulous weekend!

Shabby Chic Shopping at Hobby Lobby

I adore Hobby Lobby. I'm so sorry if you don't have one near you but maybe you will enjoy looking at these photos I snapped when I was shopping there the other day. Some of the photos are from their new Spring decor line.  Enjoy!


I bought this lamp! It's now on my kitchen counter.  It's truly fabulous.








               


























Awesome "lamp" candle holder and tea cup planter.


I bought this potholder!







                                    









 Flowers in pink and white.  I saw moss green, too.
  Fabulous pillows.  I have a similar pillow that I purchased from HL last year.
These flowers are quite large.
 
 Metal shelves (displayed upside down...sorry :)
A pretty rug with several shades of pink



 I would love this planter for my front porch.

I hope you enjoyed shopping with me!
Have a fabulous day!

A visit to my farmhouse...

 Someday I want to live in an old farmhouse on a few acres of beautiful land!  I also want to live on the beach, too. I want both! I guess I better win the lottery of something.
Let's visit my prairie home, shall we?


Welcome!




Please have a seat, stay for awhile...



Shall we pick some flowers from the garden?








...or play with the kitty?



...or read a good book?



Let's have cupcakes for dinner!



A relaxing soak in a beautiful tub right before bedtime...



How about a restful night's sleep in this room?



...or would you prefer to sleep here?



A midnight snack perhaps?


A pretty white outfit awaits you in the morning...



A delicious breakfast made by me, of course :)



Thank you for visiting..have a safe trip home...

Have a fabulous day!
