Ruffled Emotion

The eyes of our great big world are always zoomed in on the sexy, the exotic, the grandeur, and the lavish glamor. But...we can't forget the cuddly, adorable, sweet things with lots of cuteness swirled on top!

A woman can replace the hard appearance of life with soft beauty,
add grace to the rat race,
and give gentle love instead of fierce selfishness.
Never loose your identity to any pressures to plow harshly through life filled with self-centered attempts to be sexy, powerful, and accepted. Women have a strong presence in society without conforming to empty demands.

SO....just chill.
Let yourself be adorable,
keep your heart sweet,
bless your loved ones,

and love the life you live!

And what defines ADORABLE more than ruffles?! I'm a ruffle girl.
Ruffles are flirty but still innocent, playful and sweet, the perfect accent for a girl's life.

Oh my goodness...I am dreaming of ruffles...I agree the Faded Plains pic is the best ever. Don't you just love Andrea's style! Gorgeous pictures for a Monday!

We must think alike, because I LOVE those websites too. I have been trying to convince Ben that we NEED the tuxedo ruffled bedspread from Anthroplogie. I check their website literally every day. :)

I smiled all the way through this post. It is all just so you! Perhaps your husband needs to give you a bigger ruffle allowance?

Have you read the Fancy Nancy books? I love them, I am such a Fancy Nancy and love, love, love ruffles. I had seen so many of the Anthropologie ones, but some of the others were new. I did a post on a ruffled purse like the one on the car door, so easy. I also bought fabric to do a tablecloth like the all white one, but haven't got around to that yet. Thanks for such eye candy.
