Drum Roll Please ~ "The Unveiling of my new Blog Look by Shari at Little Blue Deer!"



You are invited to help me celebrate so please play the music and enjoy!



There must always be champagne especially pink .....


Put on your prettiest dress .......


and highest of heels .....




and let the balloons fly high ....




I have been blogging since about 2009 ...... and I have always wanted to make it a special time ... a time to meet like-minded souls all over the world ..... the thing is we girls in particular yearn for that connection .... (quick have a sip of champagne and a bite of one of these delicate morsels) .... now where was I ... oh yes I love finding people who love what I love, who get what it is like to go weak at the knees when seeing buckets full of roses or gorgeous antiques .... how we feel in awe when walking through historical sites and wonder what has gone before ...... how excited we get when you see a delicate colour or a beautiful fabric ... and think how talented is the creator ..... a love of beauty in this world is a good thing! ...... In the movie Dead Poet's Society .... Oh Captain My Captain said "and medicine, law, business engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."    





Shari at Little Blue Deer has helped me take my blog to the next level and I cannot tell you all how talented and patient she has been..... I knew what I wanted (sort of) but loved so many things.  I gave Shari a list of what I love like crowns, pink and gold, chandeliers, Laduree and said that I wanted a blog that was reflective of me, my loves and my work. She created the gorgeous toile header and the cutest pink buttons ever (ok yes another sip and perhaps one with a strawberry in next time ..... I love strawberries and rose petals in champagne ... don't you!)  Shari was truly amazing to work with and I am so thankful and grateful to her .... 



These are some of Shari's other gorgeous designs .....
"Michael Devine"


Tina's beautiful and elegant "The Enchanted Home"



and "My Blue Whimsy" just to name a few of the beautiful pieces in her extensive portfolio!  Go visit Shari at www.littlebluedeer.com
.......... she will create your dream!


I hope you are enjoying the music and you must try one of these delectable Charbonnel et Walker champagne truffles ..... This is one of the images that inspired me and Shari captured it perfectly!!!






.....now let me offer you another glass of champagne and perhaps a macaron.....




ahhh here are the rose petals ..... 


and this stunning confection .... I am sure Paris Pastry could whip one of these up .... look at the gold leaf .... I know I don't think I could cut it either .....



so we could wander at leisure outside to sit at our party table and talk and laugh and share until the sun goes down ..... then as the night creeps in we can celebrate with ...... fireworks!!!!!! Thank-you Shari so much and thank-you dear friends who make it so much fun to share the world's beauty!!!!!  Press play and let's party!!!



Oh but before we go outside check that your shoes are looking their best as there will be dancing .... and hopefully Anita will be able to play her gorgeous harp after we have danced to Katy Perry ....... ignite the light and let it shine ... 



  we can stay here and have coffee and croissants in the morning watching the sun come up!!!





my best wishes always 
M.A. the 2nd 
xxxxx
