Romantic Style











Don't you just love it when you the mailman brings a parcel?? I do. Just look what I received yesterday - this beautiful book called "Romantic Style".



I could move into this gorgeous room within minutes, I'm sure. It is just so pretty.





Candlelight is another of my favourite things too!! It just makes everything look special.




This green fluted sweet plate was a find from our old farm house and the bags of lollies were favours from a wedding we attended. You can see it here.




Pretty floral cups and new books - two of my most favourite things. Another is chocolate - besides my family, of course!!




Look at these gorgeous pink florals - most of these I have picked up at second hand stores or in our old farm house.



























I love the way the sunroom walls look through this soft filter - I wish my whole house was like that!




The inside of this book is just as inviting as the cover - I can't put it down. lol

Suzy, the book looks beautiful, but I believe that your pretty plates all lined up and the stacked tea cups could be a photo straight out of that book. So pretty. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things Sat.
