Gifts of Roses!

I made a decision earlier this week and I'm only going to be posting every 2 days now. I love blogging but other things are becoming more important. :-)

I recently received a surprise in the mail!! Just take a look at these gorgeous faux desserts created by my sweet friend, Miss Rhea. Go visit her Giveaway for fabulous pastries. You really don't wanna miss it, chicks!!!

And my own initial "C" is now hanging over my antique school desk - painting desk - now!!
A satin and velvet hanger. Woooooeeeeee!!
Yes, I've named her Rhea and she sits in my living room on a sofa table - proudly!

Vintaaaaaaaaage wallpaperrrrrRRRrrr!!!! Yesssssss, isn't that so kind of her. I just love it and will do something special with the wallpaper soon.
:-) <-------me with a huge grin on my face!

These I ordered from the internet and they came. I'm putting them all around the room. When I say "girly-girl room" I mean a girly room!!! I ain't wimpy 'bout it, chicks; I go all the way. I have 50 and the leftovers will go into other rooms after they are painted. This can take a couple of months though. I don't have the energy to do the whole house at once. I'm an ol' chick, ya know!! ;-)

I was truly blessed this day. I live a "charmed" life, my sweet cherubs!!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun stuff...have fun walpapering!

  2. Hi Connie,
    My gosh you have been busy. The desk looks great as do all your sweet treats you received today. No wonder you are happy!!

  3. Connie Dear, you show me things I cannot handle first thing in the morning. Even 'faux' treats make my mouth water and that's not a good thing before the morning gloppity-goo of heart-healthy oatmeal!

    Love the C, very cute! I think I might have to wander on over someday to take in the total ambiance of the so-girly girl room you've been lucky enough to call an office!


  4. Hi Connie dearest... Love the Faux Sweets and everythig else as well.. Nothing wrong with girlie is there... The desk came out just simply beautiful... LOVE IT!


  5. Oh Connie, those cakes are so cute... and they look so real too! I've been looking for those gorgeous faux desserts in our local stores for a long time now, but it seems that no body carries them.... guess I'd have to buy them over the Internet... :)

    Have a lovely day, sweet lady!


  6. good Morning Connie, To look in the closet and see the pretty hangers sure makes you feel good doesn't it. Have a blesses day.

  7. oh my! Look at all those pretty things!!! Love the cakes and the "C" that is so sweet!!! XOXOXO

  8. I am loving everything in this room! Great job!

  9. You crack me up! You are so hilarious. Can't wait to read your upcoming series on household chores -- it should be good for lots of giggles, especially as you've had so many more years at doing those household chores than EYE have. ***SNORT***

    Your desk is gorgeous -- what wonderful ideas. I've been looking for an old metal filing cabinet to cover - thanks to you I'll remember to use something besides, um, FABRIC SOFTENER - to adhere the gift wrap I plan to use....

    I got a GREAT inspiration for covering one of my bedroom windows from two of the many window dressing photos you posted. I hope it works, and when/if it does, I'll send photos.

    OK, blushing blog buddy, time for me to get back to the easel!

    Have a WONDERFUL day!

    Hus, Ronda
