Why I love being a woman!

I was just thinking about pretty things....
I have been wondering through many blogs recently... many beautiful blogs....
There are many more, but I cant list them all...

I just love pretty things. I really love pretty shabby chic, vintage things.
I would have my house decked out in it, but alas I live with a man.
Though I have been slowly collecting things and adding them here & there.... I figure if I add things one by one, he wont really notice the transformation to beauty! Hehe....

I truly believe God gave woman an eye for beautiful things. After all we were created in His image. And HE is beautiful! It makes sense really.

I love that I can enjoy beautiful things because I am female. Men get labelled "nancies" if they can appreciate the beauty of pretty pink things. So that's why I love being a woman!

These are just a few of my favourite things, that I have snuck in.... The pot is my favourite!
There are many more things. But unfortunately they are mostly hiding in cupboards. One day they will make an appearance!
I have been collecting plates with pretty designs from op shops that I plan to smash up one day and turn into a piece of art.

Now, I just need to find the time to do it!

I had been searching for a handbag, one that was cute & quirky. And it had to be just the right size. I couldn't find what I wanted. So I made one....
I love it!!
I love being a woman, because I can enjoy beautiful things!

I'm just starting to get into pretty things! I like classy patterned teacups the best, like intricate violet patterns. I found the best one recently. My little girl smashed it. Her defintion of 'pretty' at the moment is a muddy puddle...

Enjoy the pretty. Girls and boys are just different, and they usually don't notice the slowly, slowly approach.
