Friendship and Inspiration in the mail....

I just love coming home from work and finding out that I received mail..... beautiful mail no less.... Oh my, a parcel from Shell a.k.a The Raspberry Rabbits!!!
Shell sent me this gorgeous book!!! Written by the editors of Romantic Homes magazine, one of my favourite magazines.....
Full of wonderful, glossy images of inspiration!
Photos of ideas and ways to decorate and create your own vintage rooms......

In white....love it....
A glimpse of how one could organize and store things.....
So many lovely images and pages of inspiring ideas.....
Thank you Shell!!! I have to go and make something, I just got another idea! I don't know about you but I feel so creative and inspired this year..... as Shell said, this is the year of the rabbit...maybe that's why I want to do things in multiples!!!! Is anyone else out there thinking that this is going to be an exciting and wonderful year?
