A feminine touch

I adore feminine designs, delicate fabrics and silky patterns, glass and mirrors, stones and jewelry. I would love to have a boudoir, a room for myself, filled unabashedly with feminine touches...a dressing room/atelier/book nook/fireplace/garden room...a place to sit and write a letter, read a novel, drink a cup of tea, chat with my girlfriends on the phone, try on a new outfit or dream a little dream!

I'd have colors and cushions like that...

And some lovely chairs like these...

And a chandelier like one of them...

There would be a soft carpet...

And delicate glass and china...

There are books...

And lovely dresses...

A scent like that...

And a view into the garden...

Did I forget anything? Fill in the rest and there it is...

As Mother's Day approaches I feel we need to think of mothers as woman first and then we remember what makes them special and what keeps them full-filled with their motherly energy...
To my mother and my mother-in-law: A million thanks for your love, guidance and friendship! And I thank my children who have made me a happy Mama for more then 20 years! I love you, darlings!

Happy Mother's Day to all moms at heart out there!

  2. Happy Mother's Day. I love all the girly pics you've chosen. My special day is complete just spending time with children and grandchildren, knowing that they appreciate me in their lives. Nothing better!

  12. Hi Victoria,

    I just read your post on Vicente Wolf's blog. So, rather than post there, I thought I would post on YOUR blog which is also very cool! I haven't started one yet, but I'm also in Westchester--near Katonah. We all have our horror stories. I always say... "I've made plenty of mistakes-- I just try not to make the same ones twice!"
