Fabulously French

Lately, I've been loving French inspired furniture, fashion, and architecture. 
Isn't it lovely!!?  What's not to love, really?  Pretty crystals, chandeliers, ornate furniture.
Love the pearls, and the colors.  Especially the colors.  I find myself wanting to dress in these muted tones every day.  Aren't the fabrics in this picture gorgeous!!? 
Seriously, so lovely!!  I love the velvets mixed with the silks.  The antiques mixed with the mirrors.  It's all so pretty.  
I love how old that chest seams.  I love the sparkles on the bedding.  The mirrored furniture again.  The candelabra!  Love.
Don't you love that mirror?!  And the tufted furniture is really speaking to me right now. 
Seriously, this really does make it seem like you're looking through rose colored glasses.  I love the colors, the textures, the flowers by the bed, everything about these lovely rooms.

Church Charms

I just love the way these little charms look.
Not to mention the messages they carry!
Seriously so cute!
You can find them at {Charmcicles}
How often do you find a {Young Women} or {Primary} trinket that you would actually wear!?
I love this idea!  Well done!

I wonder if I'll ever figure out why I love windowseats so much.
They just look so inviting! 
Not to mention, they're a pretty creative use of space - resulting in more seating. 
I think they make the most sense in rooms that don't typically have couches, like bedrooms, playrooms, and offices. 
But, I like them in every room I find them in! 
They can act as a pretty and functional piece of storage. 
I mean, how practical is that in an office space!? 
They're just so cozy. 
They make a perfect little reading nook. 
Seriously, they're perfect in any room! 
Seriously, how beautiful is this!
And they look great in kitchens too....
Love em.

Jewelry Bowls

Just a quick, easy tip for organizing all those jewels.
Put em in bowls.  I especially like how they draped the earings over the edge of the bowl. 
It's a great way to make sure all your necklaces don't get tangled.
And it's cute, too!

To The Moon Baby Shower

I'm a little bit in love with this baby shower.
What a cute theme, right!?  I love the book this is based on.
Ane the way she carried the theme here is just so perfect.
Don't you love those little moons on the cupcakes, and the colors, and the paper stars!?
A perfect little cake.
The table looks great, doesn't it?
Cute and simple decorations.
I just love the way it all looks together!!!
My favorite part is definitely these little bottles of moon dust.  Aren't those little metal tags precious!?
Cute as a decoration,
And they make a really cute take home gift, too! 
Even the cookies are adorable!  Seriously!
Don't you just love the way it all looks!!?
I love how the food is all labeled to fit the theme, too.  Star dusted donuts - Ah!
Just so stinkin cute!!
Are you not amazed!?
This is just such great party inspiration!!  To learn more, visit {Pen n Paper Flowers} and here again at {Pen n Paper Flowers}

My Latest Bow Frames

I sell a lot of these bow frames.  They're pefect for storing all things girly, you just clip bows to the ribbons.  Anyway, recently I had a customer approach me with a new idea.  She wanted a fabric panel on the back of her bow frames.  I really like the way these turned out!  
It was fun to have just one more element involved. 
The fabric really makes them POP! 
She wanted three different frames, but just wanted them to coordinate, not match, so I had a lot of fun with that, too!
But, this last one was by far my favorite of the three. 
I love the way it turned out - even though it was totally by accident.  I spray painted it when it was too cold, so it went on all lumpy. 
So, I sanded all the lumps out, with plans to re-paint it.  But, when I was finished, I kinda liked the antique look.
So I left it. :)   
Here they are all together.  I think they'll be so cute on the wall!!
If you're interested, I sell these on Etsy at {Little Craft Shoppe}
Happy Crafting!
