Friday Pretties & Blog Lovin'


Today I am playing along with Joyce from I Love Pretty Little Things and her Friday Pretties! So, here is my Friday Pretty. I love her dress and the flowers and how rustic, yet feminine this all looks. And I like the love it portrays.


What a lovely week of blog love! I received two awards that I am happy to get and excited to pass on!


Lovely Leslie from Lemon Sweet Life awarded me the Blog Lovin Award! Thank you, Leslie! It was so kind of you and I always enjoy your blog so much! And congratulations again on your engagement! So exciting! :)


Sweet Debby from Inspired Design awarded me the Happy 101 award! Thank you again, Debby! You are soo kind and I love your blog!
The rules with this award are to list 10 things that you love, so here we go...


1. I love having picnics in the park with my best friend! ♥


2. A guilty pleasure breakfast of mine consists of a chocolate croissant and coffee (or tea). Love it!


3. I love skinny jeans!


4. I love Art Deco. Everything about it, from fashion to architecture, is great.


5. I love interior design...and beautiful interiors like this one!


6. I love vintage shops!


7. A little known fact, I love the Dick Van Dyke show. It is a classic. I've seen every episode lots of times and I never get tired of it!


8. I love my iPod...and all the music that is on it! I can't live without it.


9. I love Martha Stewart (and her beautiful treats like these cupcakes). She is an inspiration!


10. I love blogging (if that wasn't obvious!). And I love all my readers. I still am in awe of all the support I feel. Thank you all so much for reading. I really do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!

And now I would love to pass the Blog Lovin Award on to:

Debby from Inspired Design

Anna from Cornflake

Bren from Chasing Beauty

Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover

Vanessa from A Casa da Va


And I pass the Happy 101 Award to:

Georgia from S I M P L Y ~ S M I L E
