Pretties and Posies


You would think Martha Stewart put this party on!!!!
It wasn't Martha
It was Melanie
Melanie was kind enough to leave a comment on my last post!
Thanks Melanie! I am so excited to have discovered you & your blog!
I love this door! I have quite a fascination with doors! I love how she used it above her bed! So Clever!
I love her living room!
I thought I better alert all of you about this incredibly talented woman!
I hope you will take a moment to visit her blog!

Hey Maria...beautiful post by the way...I am a HUGE fan of your blog! Your home has really inspired me to dream in white!! :) I emailed you about a giveaway on my blog for some white vintage books...and the possibility of sponsoring a giveaway for your blog readers. But then I thought about myself and I check my blog way more than my email...so I thought I might better comment. Would love to include you in our giveaway and offer one to your readers! Thanks and blessings, Shaunna

I love doors too! Forget couple photos, all I do when in Europe is take architectural photos, especially doors and windows. :p

Love your header! I did check out Melanie's blog and yup she is one talented lady. Thank you for telling us about her. Table truly looks like a "Martha" event. Stunning! Do you happen to know or remember the color of you living room wall? Your living room is just beautiful, serene but warm and cozy at the same time. Yes, I do think it can be both.
Have a beautiful day.

Kristen said...

I loved every single picture I scrolled over...esp. the ones of the baby shower! My sisters pregnant and after both of us have only had boys I'm dreaming of throwing a GIRL baby shower for once!!

Leslie said...

Yes she is very talented, this is just the tip of the iceberg!!! She is my baby sister and I am so proud of her. We grew up with some very talented women in our lives and they were great inspiration to us. Mel and I love to decorate and create. I always say that when I was born I got the organization genes, I left the creativity ones in there for her! Thanks so much for featuring her beautiful home, they worked very long and hard on it! I am very blessed because I get many of her hand me downs when she decides to redecorate, lucky me!!
Your blog is gorgeous by the way!! Very inspiring in iteself!

Leslie said...

P.S.
I told Melanie that I want a party just like this for my 40th this year!!
