.... soft grey, pearls, millinery and red lips ...
... dew kissed foxgloves ...
... a satiny bow ...
... soft shimmer ...
... fanciful shoes ...
... a frippery fascinator ...
... and flowers and forks ...

I confess to having something of an obsession with miniature things. Miniature things that actually do major functions are even more obsession-worthy.
This little (wireless!) printer is just about the cutest techy-thing I've seen in forever. As I write so infrequently (never) about technology here, a post on a wee device is kind of a Big Deal.
But it's cute, and cute matters here darn it!

It's already early July ... how did that happen?
Since my last blog post here, I've been working feverishly on my main blog. I've abandoned my well-intentioned blog The Picture of Pretty because there's just not enough time. I started walking, lost some more weight, got into a brief but fairly tempestuous relationship with a handsome foreign-born man (oooh heartache, you are a stern taskmaster) ... in other words, I've been living my life and times just goes by.
I've paid scant attention to the aesthetic aspects of my life, and I miss that. I broke out a new set of sheets today (very Shabby Chic) -- white, pink roses, countryside pretty -- and got inspired by them. There's so much I still want to do with this odd shaped, cookie-cutter apartment.
I also went blond(ish), and am convinced anew that God made a mistake. That he should have finished the job before I popped out of the oven; born with frosted hair I was, when I should've been blonde. Are you there God? If you're listening, it's time for a little miracle.
Hope your Summer is progressing nicely and that you've been bringing beauty into your days on a regular basis. Because guess what -- if we don't do it for ourselves, nobody else will!

... time to jolly myself out of the Winter funk by thinking of Spring and all the cheerful color and sweetly seasonal, totally girly things just around the corner!
