Yellow Tea Cup - Compressed

Hello my Darlings…

Once again, it’s been a busy time for me, with an extended business trip to New York, and due to all manner of interruptions, I have not had a chance to blog in the last couple of weeks.  Keep in mind, I’m always thinking of you, always writing and drafting articles, which will be released in the future, or may even become an eBook.  It was important to me, to wish you a very cheery and bright Sunday.

This gorgeous yellow cup was a great find at HomeGoods.  You can go crazy in that store (as well as Marshall’s and TJMaxx) if you’re not careful.  I collect teacups and teapots (it’s the Brit in me) and could not walk away from this beauty. It’s a gorgeous addition to my collection, and to me, it represents the yellow daffodils and tulips, which are in abundance right now, and the steaming hot summer yet to come.

If you’d like to see more of the gorgeous pillow, pop over to my Etsy Store

And remember…

 

Be Your Kind of Beautiful

The Word Cute…

Hello Darlings, I hope you’re keeping cool in the sweltering heat we’re having.  We’re actually expecting a huge thunderstorm in Washington, DC, so I hope you have your bottle of wine and some lovely cheese and crackers, while you watch something good on TV or even better, catch up on that book you put down 2 weeks ago {myself included}.

Now… The reason for this post, is I’ve realized I have a major issue with the word CUTE! To me the word “cute” describes, babies, kitten, and puppies.  The word cute does not describe a $400 dollar handbag or any beautiful bag for that matter, beautiful shoes or a stunning dress.  It amazes me how many people use the word cute to describe anything that is well made and beautiful.

Maybe it’s because I’m older now, so I no longer see beautiful and absolutely gorgeous and unique items as cute {not that I ever really did, as I was taught to know the difference}.  It truly irks me when someone comments on something I’m wearing, and they say “that’s really cute!” I tend to look around for the adorable baby when I hear that.  I truly appreciate the compliment, but is cute the only word that comes to mind? I do not wear, nor do I own cute things.  Is it just me, or is the word CUTE overused in the wrong context?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Now this is cute!

P.S. The handbag above, is the Michael Kors Miranda bag, which is on my “Dream List”~ $1,195 ~ available at Nordstrom’s

See you soon Luvvies
