STAR OF MY BLOG...AKA DOLLFACE

Introducing...Kathy "The Star of My Blog"
Keep life happy...this is her motto....
A collage of all things pretty....
Just another day....paradise sweet paradise....
Thrifted, pretty gadgets adorn the dresser...
She had to have a chandelier to complete the look of this darling shabby Chic space..
She will always treat you to a salad....with black olives and chick peas included....
I love this cozy nook with its twinkling lights and peaceful atmosphere....don't we all need a place like this to chill?
A curbside treasure. It's an old window frame that doubles as a jewelry organizer/display.
Loves wearing heels, especially high heels....
The pink mini statue is by Juicy Couture that she uses to hang her bracelets....
The antique metal letters were found at the flea market and painted a creamy color and then she added sparkles and a shimmery pink ribbon.
She found most of her pink books at the thrift store...
The shelves were put together with a piece of wood and a pair of matching metal brackets....
The letters are from Anthropologie but she got them for a steal from ebay...
Three different shades of pink were used to paint the walls and trim....
We re-used most of the items that she already had including this antique rocker...
She painted the dresser the same cream color as the letters spelling dream. They were a light brown before.
The wicker chairs and the antique, metal garden table which she had stored in her shed were dug out and spray painted to make a comfy cozy space to sit and relax.
Say hello to Kathy aka "dollface". We have been friends for a long time and have recently reconnected through facebook and running into each other at a local hang out called the Taproom where she likes when I sing with the band and play the tambourine while she dances. She is a people magnet and should have her own blog but claims she does not have time...whatever Kath. She loves, fashion, thrifting, being an R.N. at a prominent hospital in Philadelphia, the sun, working out, and being the life of the party. Her home is immaculate and watch out if you don't clean up after yourself....I have learned to fix the pillows on the couch when I get up, wash my coffee cup when I am finished and close the toilet seat lid so that her cats (all four) stay away from the throne. Last Summer she asked me to help her make a space in her home, a place to call her own where she could relax with a good book or magazine or entertain girlfriends over wine or coffee. I jumped on the opportunity and wanted to share with you my blogger darlings, the details of her "happy place" where she can enjoy some down time either by herself or with her girlz... Feel free to leave a comment.. and thanks for dropping in...have a great weekend. Lots of love, Dawn xo

Hi, Dawn! I really enjoyed browsing around your blog. You have such great style! I love that you rock a hat so often! I wish I had the guts and the know-how. You've definitely got a keen eye for mixing modern and vintage to form a bold, feminine, sassy look. Very cool :) thank you for stopping by my blog. You're comments really made my day :)
