Pretty Cool Pink Stuff

I've lined up some fun stuff that I've come across in the last week that I want to share with you!

I've known for some time what a schizophrenic decorating style I have. It takes on multiple personalities. One of them loves English cottage style, all rosy and chintzy, and lately, with pale pink stripes! The closest I've come to achieving this look so far has been isolated to my decked out summer patio. . . .

But I would love this pale pink striped couch from the cottage collection at Lexington Co UK! All sinky and yummy. OOOOOOOOHH!

Maybe you've seen these recycled library bundles from Ballard Designs! I love the different French pastel pages. Unfortunately "bundle" refers to the COST as well! But I'd love to copy the covers!

And just look at this fun post from Summerland Cottage Studio, and her hand dyed lace! Scrumptious! Click here for the link.

This week on the newsstand (Barnes & Noble) I picked up this fat special design issue of British Country Living! One of the first articles is a reprint of an article I referred you to on one of my recent white porch posts here. Yay!!!

Remember this?

Now it's back! This issue has smaller dimensions than the regular issues and is more like a book. You'll love it! It's packed FULL!

Remember it's BRITISH CL!

Finally, just look at what I stumbled across at the USPO! That's right the Post Office! When I was mailing off my ugly manila envelopes for Mother's Day I saw what I might have had instead.

YUMMY! Maybe they were meant for Mother's Day, but I grabbed up a bunch of boxes and mailers for future gift mailing. I'm sure they won't last long.

I hope your weekend is wonderful!

Cozy British cottage love here! You've captured that look well, Jacqueline, and thanks so much for sharing some inspiration with us. I'll be on the lookout for the British CL edition.

Love the colored lace! How gorgeous!!! I really like the pink stripey sofa too; how lovely it would look on a pretty screened in porch...I wish I had one!

I love this post! I want that book, I love the striped sofa, and the lace is divine! I too saw those lovely boxes and padded envelopes at the PO while I was mailing my boring white box but I wasn't thinking clearly enough to pick some up for future use. What was I thinking?
Happy Mother's Day!

I am much more into that cozy British style than into French style. I have actually bought British CL a couple of times and I loved it. The postal boxes are fun.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Ah, Jacqueline, it's always a treat for the eyes to visit you. You never disappoint with your photos. That cushy couch would look nice in my home too. I love your last photo especially. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

Your roses are just yummy! I can almost smell them! I also love British Country Living. I will have to check for the latest one. By the time I am able to look, it will probably be gone.

Helen said...

A new follower... I am hooked. I love the style, ironstone, tin, whites, well, I love it all.

June said...

I am so glad to hear that you have "confused style disorder" too Jacqueline. I love way too many styles to stick with just one in this house : )
Such a beautiful post!
hugs from here...

Paulette Adams said...

Thank you Jacqueline for featuring my hand dyed laces,
what a lovely surprise!
I too purchased the 292 page special design issue of British Country Living, such an amazing amount of beauty and inspiration for less than $15.00 at my local Barnes and Nobel. LoVe it and your beautiful blog!

Carol said...

Beautiful, beautiful. Especially the white!
Happy, Happy Mother's Day!

Susy said...

Thank you once again for the potpourri of loveliness. And I'd like to think of your style as "eclectic" (: Happy Mother's Day to you.

Thanks so much for sharing all these lovelies, Jaqueline. That striped couch is my favorite :)
Hugs, Laura
