Debra "Deb" Dresden Disney-Dior said...

OMGoodness! I have NEVER seen such gorgeous wares in my life. This IS, in my opinion, the Disneyland of "pink presents." I don't know HOW I will manage to drool over EVERY item today, because I don't think it's possible to look at everything in
one day." I'm in LOVE! How do I choose a favorite item and ONE shop? Horrors! A "welcome" horror none-the-less. The first shop I clicked on was the "Ruffled Rose -- In the Armoire." Talk about eye candy! At first glance, my brain went into an artistic, PINK overload. Ooooh! I fell in love with the first "present" my eyes focused on -- the Frou Frou Sachet Boots, and promptly placed an order for them. ::sighing:: I'm going to mark everything I'd love to have -- from EACH shop, which will probably be the ENTIRE inventory from each vendor, so Dave may purchase "MY" Christmas presents! From "Lil Bit Old Lil Bit New, " I chose the Pink Door Knob Diamond Wine Stopper. From Holly and Glitter -- Holiday Dinnerware," I chose the Holiday Presents Butter Dish. At "Sweetheart's Nest -- Birthday Party," the Cake Plate with Dome Birthday Cake took my breath away. I couldn't access "Belle Inspiration" -- I tried several times. "Sassy Beach Jewelry -- What's New?" -- I spied the Plastic Quartz Bookmark. Oooh, from "Debi Coules -- Touch of Paris Chic," I adore the Dream Hand-Painted Sign. I love the Pink Rose Glass Covered Butter Dish, from "Bella Lucille -- Pretty in Pink." Oooooh, the Cotton Candy Pink ornament, from Dusty Oak Ornaments -- Ornaments By Color MUST have been created with me in mind. :) OMG! The Crystal Wand, from "French Charmed -- Bijoux" is to sigh for! The Pink Cherub Shade, from "Bella Rose -- Romantic Victorian Home -- Lamp Shades is calling, quite e loudly, my name! "Little Luxuries of VA -- Accessories," Fleur de lis Soap Dish in pink is lovely! I like the Hand Painted Pumpkins over at Ribbons Roses and More! EVERTHING is coming up roses at Shabby Cottage Designs -- I love the signs -- especially the "Joy" signs. The Pink Cherub Square Pillow, at Halloween Auction Template Vintage to Vogue is breathtaking! The Halloween Masquerade, at One Spring Street -Auction Template is beautiful! You MUST see the lighted teacups at Mimi's Rose. Oooh! I ADORE every item! Bravo ladies for your impeccable work! Oh, ((((Cindy))))), thank you for leading me to this web site. I'm in Heaven! Oh! My name is Debra D. and I reside in Arizona. :) Also, I subscribed and followed the rules. Thank you!

Ingrid D. said...

There were so many beautiful things to look at and choose from! I had to go with the paintings. I love rose paintings! I bought a HP rose painting on ebay years ago and have always loved it. Recently decided to change the decor to a more romantic shabby from country style. It was hard to choose! I really liked "Shabby Cottage Christmas Sign HP Roses (the pink Joy sign) in the Shabby Cottage Designs shop. Also loved the Shabby and Cottage Chic Birdhouse SO Sweet(plan on putting a pretty birdhouse out in the yard next spring), and Shabby Cottage HP Roses Christmas Painting Joy from the same shop. Loved Debi Coules Romantic Art also, Dancing Roses in Antique Frame, Antique French Roses Panel, and Antique "Joyeux Noell" Roses Panel all from the same shop. Romantic French Chic Keepsake Box w/vintage images and HP Roses was beautiful as well from Rose Cottage Chic(mom just got robbed of all her jewelry and jewelry boxes, so that one would be for her). So many great choices to pick from! Would love to win those gift certificates! Will certainly be back to shop even if I don't! Glad to have found the shops!

Dear Santa:

Here is my Christmas wish list. I am being very specific so you will know EXACTLY what to bring me this year! I hope you don't think it is too long, but I had a hard time trying to narrow it down!

From Rose Cottage Chic, I would like the Broken China Mosaic Photo Frame to keep your picture in all year round (because if you bring me this, I will still believe in you!)

From Belle Inspiration, I really came across some things I simply must have, such as the Vintage Pure White Bridal Crochet White Lace from The Vintage Nest (for sewing on a special Christening dress), a Spring Cheer Glass Charm (to put on a chain and wear), the Paris Leather Handbag from Chateau de Fleurs (to carry all my stuff around in), the Paris Couture Notebook Journal from French Charmed (to write all my secrets in), the beautiful Vintage Gold Bracelet w/Blue Topaz Stones from Cottage Antiques (I LOVE blue topaz!), the Woods of Windsor Rose Tin from Tilly Rose (to keep precious keepsakes in), the Reproduction Paper Fan Greeting from Verdigris and Ambergis (SO romantic!), the Original Oil Painting Pink Roses 11x14 from J. Beaudet Studios (for my good friend C., who loves good art), and the French Cherubs/Madeline Leather Tote from Paris Market (which looks really cool and hip, and not like anything else I own).

I also would really like the Kimano Braided Shell Silver Necklace from Sassy Beach Jewelry Designs (I have an outfit it would go perfectly with),the Romantic Office Nesting Boxes (to keep things like paperclips, tape, extra desktop "stuff" in), the Patience Ruffled Half Apron by Bella Lucille (even though I don't cook much, I could rustle up some milk and store-bought cookies for you and look really cute), the Golden Snowflake Ornament (to hang on our tree--because I know how hard your elves work to make these because I've tried!), the French Ad Burlap Tote from French Charmed (for my friend C., who loves everything French, too), the Divine Angel Storage Boxes from Bella Rosa Designs (because I'm getting quite a stash here and I need a pretty place to put things), some Almond Hand and Body Lotion from Little Luxuries of Va., (because my niece loves to come over and play "spa" weekend), the Romantic Ribbon Embroidered Display Covered Hanger (because it would be the perfect place from which to hang my grandmother's wedding dress), the Handpainted Pink Roses Clipboard from Ribbons, Roses & More (that would make even the dullest job seem more fun!), the Embellished Glass Vanity Tray with Rhinestones from Shabby Cottage Designs (this is my absolute FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE THING!!), the Rhinestone Fairy Girl Mirror Compact from Vintage to Vogue Shop (to go in my new purse--see above), and the Wrought Iron Design Copper Note Card from Paris Market (which I will send you a fabulous, heartfelt thank you note on when you bring me all these wonderful gifts!)

So there's my list, Santa. I hope you can accommodate me, as I have been very, very good this year. You don't actually have to deliver them on Christmas morning--any time will be fine. Give the reindeer a hug, and tell Mrs. Claus I just may share some of this loot with her.

Thank you in advance . . .

So many beautiful items to choose from !! All of the shops have some wonderful items that would be perfect either for my own house or for gifts for friends or family.

They are all sooooooo beautiful !!

Tumbleweed Trails said...

There's so man wonderful shops. One favorite is Debi Coules' Shabbylane Studios. One favorite item in the shop is the painting Antique Panel French Lady in Pink Dress.

I ove the entire look, layout and colors of the shop. Another great thing is how easy it is to see what is all in the shop and navigate within the shop. Of course there's many wonderful items for sale, too.

Happy Holidays and thanks for the fun giveaway.

All the shops have so many wonderful and beautiful goodies in them. What wonderful eye candy. Since I have to pick one I would say the Ruffled Rose. Her designs are just so sweet. I especially love her star Santa ornaments.

Here in a holiday cottages home are a self catering apartment and use it as a base while you explore the mountains. Further down the west coast is Blackpool offering good value apartments for rental. Here you can experience the illuminations and take home your loved one a stick of famous Blackpool rock.
