The ruffled neck Amsale gown below was my inspiration for this ruffled red and white affair.
We have a week to play with our boards... so who knows what I'll enter.
I may just have to do all 9 dresses!

What color do you like your "sunny side up" paired with?
Tough to choose isn't it?
but... if you must know...
my faves, I have 2, the purple and the gray
the not-so-typical combos

Besides that Hollywood movie style I opened with, they have a great selection of other customizable 3.5 x 4 inch magnets in all colors and themes. Here are a few of the varied selection that they offer...
which is your fave?
Gia Graham of betsywhite stationery boutique.
A small sample of her work is shown on the board below her "Lucia" and "Antonia" invitation designs and free downloadable cello bag topper.
She designs custom logos and all types of stationery for your wedding, party, baby announcement, or everyday needs. You'll be delighted, I'm sure, to peruse her beautiful work.
I chose this saffron and ginger color to highlight, but you'll find every color palette in her designs.

Yesterday I stopped at the "Queen of Hearts" Antiques and Interiors here in Atlanta. It's what I call a "junk" store where vendors have a booth and sell their wares. Some of it's antiques and some of it's just knick-knaks or old furniture they don't want anymore. You have to weed by a lot of junk, but there are always great finds and interesting pieces too. It's a great way to get ideas and find some character pieces to decorate with and cheaper than buying new.
I love this idea:
my fave find... I'd love this chest for my own bedroom
repainted & reupholstered useful side chair to fill an empty space find an old chair and DIY
cute mirror and pictures for the nursery
I'd paint the picture frames pink too for a little girls room
and... what Flintstones lover's kitchen should be without this cookie jar!
you'll find a lot of fun and quirky stuff like that
happy hunting & decorating!
