Darling, how do you make your photos look so gorgeous? I envy you for having the computer talent to do so. I have two left hands when it comes to posting photos.

Is that little lovely dish a tea-light holder in your fifth photo? I simply adore it. It reminds me of the dish I bought awhile ago. They are so similar that they can be mother and daughter. Darling enjoy it, a lovely dish it is.


Love & Hugs

Duchess ♥♥♥

Rose said...

Gorgeous photos! I think the only person who can make you truly happy is yourself. Lately ive learnt that friends and family can let you down, but its up to you what you make of the situation.
