INSPIRED: Bring on the Pretty

Hi Lovies.
Working on several deadlines this week
so I'll simply bring on the pretty with some
of the images that I have found inspiring recently ...
do they inspire you as well?

I love this photo of a french clock
and it made me wonder
if it really worked ...
or perhaps the bird has the job of
tweeting every hour?


Poodle cookies ...
I love to bake and decorate cookies for special occasions
and can't imagine any that would be more fun to decorate
than these pink poodles ...


Everytime I see beautiful gowns
on hangers, I want to paint them ...
and the fact that these also have a sparkly
necklace hanging around with them
makes painting them all the more irrisistible ...


It's probably not surprising that I found
this paint box filled with colorful glass votives
delightful ... each votive color is even
noted on the box, as if they were actual paints ...
so whimsically charming.


Love this Jo Malone Sugar and Spice campaign image ...
it's such a fun fantasy ... the description says:
"a collection of five fragrances created for moments of delicious pleasure,
inspired by delectable ingredients.  Decadently tempting."
If you click on the link below and run your mouse over the image,
you will see that perfume bottles adorn those decadent desserts ...
making them look as delicious as the desserts themselves ;) ...

I love lilac and these nails make me want to rush out
for some gorgeous lilac polish for spring ...
and it's now on my to do list!
Doesn't the ring-finger gold glitter  just add that perfect touch?

I've always had a thing for bows ...
tied around a wrist, on a handle of a bag ...
and now I see I need one on my finger ...


A little beauty for the middle of the week
is always a good thing, no?
Hope you're having an inspiring week!

Sandy those poodle cookies are killing me! They are the cutest! I have the Jo Malone ginger biscuit! Ummm yeah, my mom stole it from me. So I guess it smells good. HaHa That bird cage clock on bottom is exquisite. Love! Have a great day!

Oh deadlines. They always keep on coming, but at least you're kept busy. I do love that manicure and have been looking to try pastel purple for a long time. Of course Essie would have the perfect one!

I do the same! I post pretty when I'm busy and overwhelmed! Good luck with your deadlines!

Those cute poodle biscuits and the lilac polish with a touch of glitter are definitely my favourites! However, the clock is stunning too!
