February brings out the extra ruffly girl in me.
I love how the buzz of Valentine's day kicks out the last of the holiday blues.
I love holidays.
I don't care if they are commercialized, that has no bearing on if I like them or not.
I just adore the light-hearted feelings they impart.
Plain and simple.
Like ruffled petals.
The last time I saw my dad he grabbed my phone, which has a floral phone case, and said, wow you are sooo feminine!
It made me laugh.
It was something I hadn't realized, ridiculous, but true.
Then I was like, oh my goodness, I am one of those lace loving frilly poof girls!
And it took me a moment to realize my reality.
I like glitter and crepe paper, ruffles and pink.
Did you know?
How do you feel about pink and ruffles?
Yay or nay?
I happen to also love rustic and modern and simple.
But ruffles win in my house, I guess?
So does vintage and antique china.
What can I say?
Scallops and pretty things and hobnail get this magpie's attention.
Curious little things!
Sun light through blue glass makes me happy too.
What about you?
I adore sea glass as well.
Isn't it so special?
But that's another tale.
Tonight I have paint and pencil out.
Faces coming to life.
Fluttering paper dresses.
Telling me little things.
Such tiniest little face details I can hardly focus.
Painting this and that.
And sneaking away to have tea and be inspired by carnations.
Pretty little tea things inspire me so.
Are you into vintage or antique hobnail and tea things?
I just loooooove those beautiful old antique stores filled to bursting with such goodies.
I love peeking around shelves for hours.
So many little treasures to admire.
Stories they hold.
I find it so relaxing.
Now that I own so many ahem, treasures, I only bring home things I absolutely adore.
Which is quite fun in itself.
To only bring home the most special little thing.
Or sometimes, nothing at all.
Find any fun things out on thriftventures lately?
I think I'll go into town tomorrow.
But for tonight, paint waits for me...
Hope you are doing wonderful!!
Happy February ♥
