For the last couple of months I have been craving floral patterns... intensely.
I think it originated from a couple pins on my French Romance Board on Pinterest. It is a board where I just pin pretty things that are my style and I don't know where else to put them. Anyways, I pinned this basket of beautiful floral quilts, some floral print teacups, and some floral pillows. (I was going to share, but I couldn't find their sources...bummer.)
So then I just wanted to surround myself with everything floral! I think it was a bit of Spring Fever. Anyways, I have no income currently (being a full time student) so I tried to avoid shopping. However one night after grocery shopping I sweetly asked my husband if we could quickly stop into GoodWill. He agreed...and there it was!
A Simply Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell pillow sham! For $2.99! Now I know that some of you from bigger cities have more impressive thrifting experiences (as far as price), but here in WI I think that is a pretty good deal for the usually overpriced thrift stores! It was brand-spankin-new and $20 at one point in its life!
Pink isn't necessarily my go-to decorating color or anything, but I can handle a touch of soft pinks around the home, and I think pinks always work well with floral patterns.
Well that should hold me over for now...at least until I graduate at the end of the month and get a job (hopefully right away!)... and then once I do, well... watch out!! Our little apartment may look like an English garden. Mwahahaha... my husband will just have to embrace the feminine touches. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
