My Pink Pinboard

"Magic happens when you do not
give up, even though you want to.
The universe always falls in love 
with a stubborn heart."

    Once again I am apologizing for having not posted in awhile and I hope you will forgive me. I truly do enjoy blogging and I love to share pictures of my home and everyday with you. I don't want to get too personal but by way of an explanation the past few months have been very difficult ones in my home and in my family. My Grandad passed away and it was a very sad time and then shortly after this my own Father had a heart attack and needed open heart surgery. I have been reeling a little and trying to regain my footing in the face of so many changes! But here I am! 
     I have still been working on decorating and fixing up my new home which has been exciting and rewarding. I love being married and I love having my own home to style! One of my newest projects I want to share with you today! I have had several pin boards over the years in my studio but I think my latest one is my absolute FAVOURITE! I bought a large antique frame and painted it a stunning blush pink colour and then brushed it with gold along the gorgeous carvings. I have made this pin board a little more relaxed and just filled it with things I knew would make me feel good every time I looked at them. I put wedding memorabilia on it including my wedding invitation (which I designed myself), a card from my sister, a snapshot from the day, and a drawing I did of a wedding gown many years ago. There is a list of things I still need/want for my home (a condensed list ;), a few handmade pieces of my own including a fairy dress, Gillyflower, and a handmade necklace, drawings, a little section devoted to my niece with a card she wrote me, a picture of us, and a little fairy ornament she loves. I have an antique ormolu frame with a childhood picture of my sister and me and a little lavender and gold frame with a picture from an artist I like, bits, bobs, sayings, and of course lots of sparkle. I love to stare at it when I'm sat at the computer and it completes my little room. I hope you will enjoy the pictures and please feel free to leave me a comment letting me know what you might like to see on the blog in the future!
