Random Pretties.....

Hey there girls..

Just popping in to say hello from a hot and steamy Minnesota where the temp is hovering around 91 degrees at the moment with the air so humid it almost makes it hard to breath. A nice cool and refreshing breeze would be so welcome right now.

And of course, I wouldn't stop in without leaving you something pretty to look would I? Well, of course not. I wouldn't be that cruel. So today, I took a few pictures of a vignette I have displayed on top of my secretary desk in my "I wanna be a crafter" room.

Don't you just love the cute little pink dress form? I found that at Michael's this past spring when they had a whole collection of adorable French themed home accessories. I dressed her up a bit by adding a piece of lace and a ribbon with a paper rose attached. So cute.

Next to that is a white wicker vanity tray. I simply adore these and have three of them in my collection now. This one here in white, one in a soft yellow color and also one in a teal blue color. You may have seen the teal blue one in past pictures. I have it sitting on my work table/desk in this same room. I've been keeping my eye out for a pink one to add to my collection as well, although to be honest, I have no idea where I would put it. I'd find a place for it eventually I'm sure.

Well that's all for today. I hope to have some new treasures to share with you later in the week. I am on vacation this week and if I don't have to spend too much money getting some car repairs done tomorrow (dang that "Check Engine Soon" light), I'll be hitting the antique shops later this week for some fun shopping. Can't wait to see what I might find.

Enjoy your week, don't work too hard and come back and visit again soon!!

Hi Kim :) Lovely pretties for us to see....adore the pretty pink dress form; I have one that I painted white and have it displayed in my sewing room. I've seen a larger style one with a shelf in the center on a blog...I soooo want one of those!! Love your wicker vanity tray. If you find another one, and it's not pink, you can always paint it yourself. I like using the Krylon Fusion Fairytale Pink :)

Love visiting with you and seeing your pretties!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

I also love those sweet wicker vanity trays and can not resist buying them, even though, just like you I really have no place for them. I do love your vignette in the tray, and the dress form is adorable - don't know how I missed those in Michaels.

KIm I have that exact same white wicker vanity tray basket. I just picked it up at a little shop a week ago and haven't decided what will go in it yet. It may end up on the dresser in my daughters room (guest room while she is away at college).

"I wanna be a crafter" room. Cute. :) Maybe you should sign up for an online tutorial class like I did and that will give you a push start!

I've never seen those tray baskets before- well, except for here! They're very sweet! ♥

Hi Kim,
The little dress form is just lovely! I sure hope the car repairs were reasonable and went smoothly!


I hope you are having a great week off and are finding some awesome treasures. I have a basket like yours...just so pretty.
Happy hunting.
Warmly , (too HOT),
Deb :)
