Beautiful Things

Good morning! Just thought I'd do a post, sharing some beautiful things I've found lately. Disclaimer: You may be inspired, so don't blame me if it costs you money! :D

1. Canadian Cottage Blog: This blog is beautiful...and so simple. I love that she makes something pretty out of the inexpensive. I admire creativity and frugality in decorating! (and I have a similar white box as seen in her blog header....and I am SO doing that with the flowers in jars!)

2. Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie: This sure would be good on the 4th of July. Or right this second.

3. April Cornell Tea Towels: I've always loved her things. These are no exception!

4. Teresa Collins' Fabric Flowers: I love the fabrics she used for these. We are making something similar in my Paper Cowgirl class, using seam binding.

5. Rebecca's Peaches and Cream collage: I am not a fan of the 80's peach color that was overused in home decor (with accompanying baby blue), but these peach tones are oh so summery and light. So pretty!

I hope you have a beautiful Monday!

Thanks for the great links! I agree with you. I admire creativity and frugality in decorating too. Can't wait to try the pie. Your comment about the
80's peach color was sooo funny. I got married in 1985 and peach was my color! LOL! What was I thinking back then, I am definitely not a fan of 80's peach now either!!! haha

What lovely things to look at. I always enjoy what other people find insiring. I always find somthing to add to My Favorites.
I had almost forgotten about the peach and blue craze. It was never one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing all the lovies and the yummy recipe too.
And from an earlier post, Moonstruck is my favorite movie too. I always feel so happy after I watch it. "To Family!"
Cheers,
