New Love















While out blog hoping the other day I ran across a blog that had one of those slide show thingys in the side bar filled with her favorite books. As I watched each page turn and another book cover appear, this one came up and I immediately clicked on it. What do you know, it took me directly to the Amazon page where I could purchase the book. So I did, wouldn't you?


I put in my order and two days later the book arrived in my snail mail box.
I could hardly wait to open up the package and take a peek inside.

I don't think I was prepared for what I was about to see...


Faded roses from yesteryear...


outdoor living dripping with cream...


Layers of Vintage lace to hide beneath and dream...

 
Sumptuous appointments fit for a Queen.
These are the interiors of Robin Brown: Founder Extraordinaire of Magnolia Pearl.
Victorian, Bohemian, Gypsy Queen...
My heart is swooning with delight over all the glorious sights!

I got this at the library and checked it out for weeks. I so enjoyed Robins story of her parents and her childhood. But the pages...ahhh the pages were filled with beauty. Enjoy!
Hope all is well with you.

I remember drooling over Magnolia Pearls pictures in Victoria magazines many years ago...I had forgotten. Her home has changed...it is romance to the max! Dreamy dreamy isn't it? You made a good purchase!!!
