I love it! It makes me smile and feel joyful. I love that quote by Billy Baldwin. That is so true. I gave up following "style" several years ago and chase after the things I love- xo Diana

Dear Koralee,
What a pretty peek at your pink!
I can't wait to see your workspace.

Thank you for your visit and kind words. So happy you enjoyed the birdies.

There are alot of instructional videos on the net for needle felting.. Just type in needle felted sculptures.. I think you would enjoy it, I find it very relaxing.. It is time consuming but enjoyable..
Blessings,
Penny

I'll always favor pink than other colors. And I'm loving your pillows especially the ruffled one.

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
What a sweet, sweet space! Everything about this space creates smiles and joy! Love the quotes too!!!
I just pinned the first one ~ it's so similar to what I just told Jason tonight ... My style hasn't really changed much ... I'm still am a very casual person!
The color pink is such a cheery color. It is the color of so many "happy" things! Think of all the blossoms that are pink...sunsets, sunrises... strawberry ice cream!

I hope you had a restful weekend!
We have a few more weeks for summer fun.
Enjoy your family adventures and all the special memories you make that will keep summer in your heart all year long!
Blessings always!
- Maria

Koralee, it's so pretty! I love all the light that floods through the window, and all the florals, and the ruffles on the pillows, and the heart from your friend and the lacy lampshade. I wish I could sit right down and read all the books in that pile. I keep thinking that one of these days you will have your very own book. And I will be first in line to purchase that one.

vintage grey said...

Such a beautiful space Koralee!! Love your lampshade and all the pretty pinks!! So sweet! Have a lovely Monday!! xo Heather

A Vintage Chic said...

I loved this pretty little PINK peek into your home, Koralee--so very you!

And I think I can guess which special magazine we'll be seeing the rest in.....! What fun!

So happy for summer to be calming down just a bit so I can visit my bloggy friends this morning...I've missed seeing what you're up to!

Wishing you the most beautiful day, dear friend...

Tracey Fisher said...

Wow - it looks so pretty and inspiring. Can't wait to see the rest and I just love the heart - how darling. I can see by your stack of books that you have a definite point of view when it comes to details - that shows in your beautiful blog. Have a lovely week Koralee!
