My Petite Versailles

Thanks to my dear sister, I have some updated photos of my garden I've been working on.  All the brick is dug up from an old street of a nearby town.  I planted lots of pink roses around the statue that my dove "Romeo" has claimed for his new perch.  I added a small pond with a fountain in it...a little hard to tell in the second photo from the top, but the tinkling water sound is lovely.  It attracks all the local birds and my cat and chickens use it for a drinking fountain. The birdhouse above is made of broken china (thanks to my 4 kids.) It's been a wonderful summer so far and I am so glad I put in a little effort this year to make a relaxing space outside.  I've enjoyed it so much, reading french novels and drinking lavender lemonade, that I wish I would've done this years sooner.  Happy summer twirly-girls.

Hair Powder

Everything old eventually becomes new again...and hair powder seems to be on the rise.  Although it is not used to really whiten the hair as in the style of Marie Antoinette, it is a great alternative to shampooing your hair everyday.  I use powder just on the roots and brush it through to blend.  Starting from top to bottom, the products shown here are: Lulu Organicsat , Kevin Murphy Powder Puff at , Principessa at and Cake at

Happy pink Saturday girlie girls.
