Today is a day of............

..............sorting pretties............



............After a day yesterday of doing nothing but washing, wiping and clearing away (and not getting any thanks I might add), I had decided that today was going to be a day where I would just faff about sorting pretties and cheering myself up.

Worked a treat!

  4. So much of family life seems to involve clearing up and wiping doesn't it?? How lovely to spend time sorting out the pretties - the perfect antidote! Your pretties are delicious pretties too! Have a happy rest of the week.

  7. I am so coveting those hair slides. New look have only ever had brown sludge ones when I have been in for a nose.

    I love how light and breezy your house seems from your photo's. I'm dying to change our bedroom curtains they are just too dark. The look we compromised was hotel chic/boudoir and it's just not me at all.

    The new blog banner is gert lush my lover, I loves it I do!

  10. Hi Vanessa,

    Those colourful rose clips really nice and what can I say about mademoiselle COCO. Such a delicious scent :-)!! Unfortunately I used my last drop a few months ago!

    Lieve groet, Madelief x

  11. Yippee! Blogger is finally allowing me to send you a message!

    I simply wanted to say your blog makes me happy. Colours are essential to life; as a mother I find happy hues even more important in our surroundings. A happy mother makes for mostly happy children. Your blog gives me a good dose of happy colours.

    Thank you.

  19. Thank you for sharing; it's made all the difference to the mess I need to clear away after my family. I think I'll do that and then get to adoring my own pretties. Very much appreciated post! Belinda

  29. Faffing and just moving stuff around is one of my favourite pastimes. Love the rose hairslides - very gorgeous.

    I've been catching up with your news. So glad you are finding healing time as a family. My thoughts to you all.

  30. I like to faff about too. It's the best feeling having time to "waste" doing your own thing.
