Unabashedly Girly

The hockey game crushed me last night.  Cuhhrushed.  Who gives up 8 goals in the Stanley Cup Finals??!  Jaysus!  See-this is why I like fashion more than sports- less heart-ache!!  Sure, we had our moment there with the John Galliano scandal, but we’ve dusted off our bodices and put it behind us.  The Canucks, on the other hand… Ugh! I can’t even watch tomorrow night-too nerve wracking (Ok, truthfullly I would watch, but I’m not going to be home)  In an effort to shirk off the rivalry, the fighting, the debacle that was last night’s game, I’m diving headfirst into a very unabashedly Girly Girl post.

PS.  Dear Canada; Do not read anything into the fact that I finally finished my forms to apply for my American Citizenship today- I still LOVE you, just a little miffed with Roberto Luongo.

I think I’d actually be happy to find one product by  “By Terry” that I don’t love

Have you spoiled yourself yet??

Having fun organizing some of my vintage pieces for summer

“Petits pots de creme a la rose” from the Laduree cookbook “Sucre”

Who cares if the recipes are in french? It’s the most gorgeous dessert cookbook ever!

I’ve had this photo in my files for years- I love the delicate balance between the femininity of the bed and the tribal rug and fabrics

A big bold feminine toile softened by airy hues and simplicity

A touch of shabby chic still tugs at my heart strings, especially in the summertime

So simple, so pretty!!

Pure, unadulterated, enamel lust

I cannot tell a lie- these roses in my conservatory are not from my garden, they were a lovely gift from a friend!

Time to pull out all your summer linens and remember, you don’t have to be camping to enjoy a little mosquito netting.
