Shabby Chic Linens

Hello my darling friends!
A huge squishy hug for all of you that visited me last week on Pink Saturday!
I read every comment and I am so thankful for each and every visit.

I simply adore Shabby Chic colors and linens.
This is the sweetest bench Mr. Romantic built out of a twin bed,
the quilt is from the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic bedding.
I love the different textures woven into the patchwork.

Valentine's is the perfect excuse to use lots of lace, ruffles
and hearts scattered about. (Not that I really need an excuse)
NOTE: I have been having some problems with my hands and feet
going numb and I am having to rest alot.

I am not one for sitting still, but it does make me stop and notice things like the textures of romantic linens.
My doctor does not know what is wrong, he wants to do an MRI of my spine.
Cross my fingers and toes this is minor.

Over time, I have learned that romance is more than just flowers, chocolates and love notes.
For me it is about falling in love with my life right where I am.
Listening to my heart and loving the people around me as much as I can.

Thank you again for your visits!
I hope you have a blessed day and if you are struggling don't give up!
Lots of love sent your way!
I am partying with
My Romantic Home
Pink Saturday

  3. Hi Olivia and happy new year! How weird, I was just wondering about you the other thinking that I hadn't *seen* you in a while! Your shabby linens are gorgeous!!!

    I hope everything works out and that your issues are minor. I worked with a girl once who actually couldn't move her legs for weeks!!! They did every test in the book on her and turns out it was just anxiety!!! Good luck! So good to see you:)

  10. Hi Olivia and Happy Saturday! I'll say a little prayer that your doctor will figure out what's wrong with your circulation and that it won't be anything serious. I wake up with asleep hands alot but I sleep on them and don't know how to stop doing that! Thanks for sharing your sweet home with us! hugs, Jennifer

    Is the slipcover on the sofa a chenille bedspread?

  16. Gorgeous! Happy Pink Saturday.
    My PINK is here. Please come and see.

  17. Hi Olivia--sending you happy, hopeful thoughts that all is well. Your shabby chic furnishings are romantic and charming! Take care, Lorraine

    Visiting for Pink Saturday! Here's my share- hope you can stop by:)

  19. Your room is lovely! I'll be praying for you!

  20. Just now making my PS rounds. You know that I love the bench and pillows already!! I'm almost done reading The Brides Book and plan a post about it soon! Love you! BTW, do you have ANOTHER bench in your living room?!?! Lucky girl!

  21. Olivia that is one beautiful bench :) Your home is so pretty and romantic :)


  22. Love your blog page! I came across it while scouring the internet for the "Candy" style quilt set. I bought one for my oldest daughter almost a year ago now, and have not found one to match for my second. If you ever find yourself wanting to sell, or know of someone who has one that wants to sell, please let me know :) I know they are beautiful and you probabl dont want to part form it, but I figured I'd give it a try ;) This is so rare!! Again, LOVE your ideas :)


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
