{it's time to accessorize}

don't you love the word
embellishment?
i so have the urge to embellish something
i think these sweet millinery flowers
would look adorable
attached to something
i just need to figure out what that something might be
{maybe some sort of accessory?}
*
the only thing that separates us
from the animals
is our ability to
accessorize
{Olympia Dukakis as Clairee Belcher in Steel Magnolias}
*
P.S. I also love the word "doodad"
{ to my embellished accessory I will also add a doodad or two}
P.S.S. how about the word..froufrou?
P.S.S.S. who comes up with these words anyways?
happy friday
sweet friends

Koralee I think my husband does. He comes up with the funniest words and now my entire family speaks Dale-isms all the time. It's like a whole new language over here at our house.

Hello Sweet Koralee!
Oh how those little flowers remind me on the Easter Treats the bunny used to leave! So sweet!
I'm thinking if I had that little bundle of flowers...I would hook them right on to my oldest pair of worn-out overalls...
put I white long sleeve tee with them...
my red clogs...
some funky socks...
and have a SPIRITED kind of funky day!
How does that sound!
Oh...and froo-frooo my hair all up! ;o)
xxooxx
Happy Weekend to you!
I need to email you!
We need to catch up! xxooxx

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I love these little flowers, and you're so creative, I know you'll come up with something to attach them to. My dad uses the word "doodad" all the time.
Blessings,
Marcia

Marsha's Mpressions said...

I use the word doodad all the time and my aunt Tootie (yes that's what I said) would always say she had a "happy" for someone which meant a gift for no particular purpose.

Emily said...

I love your blogs!

Cornflake said...

Cute flowers, how about a brooch for a scarf or a handbag accessory? Love the quote - how funny!!

Casa Bella said...

Don't have a clue what would be a good name for it, but I love the idea!

Jacqueline said...

Dear Koralee,
I think that your thingymijiggs would look lovely on a doodah or whatchamacallit. !!!!
Just some silly English words for you to mull over !
Have a lovely weekend. XXXX

Emma said...

Hello,
Being nosey now, but what does a red robin phone look like I would love too see.. Em x

Janean said...

doodad is a great word! embell-i-SHSHSH-ment IS good when said that way...yeah. this week i'll try to slip it into several sentences and drag it out...it'll be interesting to see the reactions and how many others start saying it. LOL.

great quote and post.

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

Koralee~ you are silly!I bet you were the best 1st grade teacher ever!

Suzie Button said...

Koralee, I do love he word embellishment! On a different route I also love the word rabble-rouser! I don't know why, but I love using that word! Since I caption TV, I often hear words and phrases that stick in my mind that set off likes/dislikes for me! Thanks for stopping by to see me today! Suzie

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hello Koralee,

I know you will come up with just the right thing to embellish using those happy little flowers. :0)

As for who comes up with all these words....well, it has to be all of the imaginative souls, right!?

Now in addition to your doodad's and froufrou don't forget to add a *thingamajig* and a *thingylolly*. ♥

Thanks so much for visiting me for PiNk Saturday. I hope you can make use of my rose petal designs...I see them hanging off of little packages as tags or a Paper Doll adorning the crown. :0)

Have a great day and do come back to see me soon. ♥

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Jeanette said...

Ha, I almost used that quote in my Etsy shop! Fun. I also love the words "bits and bobs", have found myself using it lately. I just clicked here after seeing your comment on Beatnheart. Nice blog. I'll be back! Just read Suzie's comment....rabble rouser IS a good one.

hometown girl said...

Beatnheart said...

Good Morning Koralee, Thanks for your visit and encouraging words..My story is indeed that..my story. I don't know how I got it started. It just came out one morning at the keyboard and now I feel compelled to keep going. Didn't know I was writing my memoir but there you have it.

Martina Voigt-Schmid said...

Koralee, you make me want to play with these lovely tiny roses and pearls i bought for don't know what - just right for some froufrou!
And thank you so much for your lovely comment on my paintings and for being a follower, i really appreciate what you say - you're such a great blogger! xox, M.

Mo said...

the word Froufrou is awesome !! i love froufrou, for me it refers to a dress or a piece of fabric with a lot of "soft" layers like lace or petitcoat...don't know if that's the right meaning though...

Beach Vintage said...

Frou frou is the best!
