Simply Irresistible...Friday Finds!

Hello, friends! It's that time again...FRIDAY. It's time to see what we have found of interest for our "Simply Irresistible" Friday Finds. I think this is always a fun way to end our week! The first incredible "find" I am sharing with you (with her permission, of course) while we are still in our "love" month of the year.....is something that has nothing really to do with "interior" design, but it has many lovely elements of design and is definitely "Simply Irresistible". Here it is...

Isn't this card gorgeous? Notice the coordination of the different colors and patterns of paper used. Look at the details of the pink hearts, rosette, intricate slide (used on ribbon), scalloped border,etc. I think she did an amazing job on this! Her other designs are just as creative and beautiful as this one....they all remind me of interior design in how everything is done in such detail and so very coordinated. I am a big fan of her scrapbooking work........and of HER. She is a treasured friend and neighbor of mine. I mentioned to her weeks ago that I'd love to showcase some of her work on my "Friday Finds". Be sure to check out Tammy's other designs at ncscrapaddict.blogspot.com. Who knows, you may even find a new hobby for yourself!

Now, take a look at a few more "Friday Finds"...

Martha Stewart Weddings

Look at this breathtaking colorful butterfly bouquet. How's this for "Simply Irresistible"? This was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and is made from silk and feathered butterflies on wire. They are made to move, float and flutter just like the real thing. I think this is quite unique so it HAD to be a Friday Find.

How about these Natural Finds Dessert Plates? What DO you think about these? I really like them, but there are only two possible choices that "I" would eat dessert on....can you guess which ones this would be? These lovely plates are available at Anthroplogies in case you'd like to add them to your decor!

Check out this beautiful tablescape in coral and green, with the added touch of a few "themed" pieces that are sure to be interesting conversation pieces at that dinner! I love it ...especially the turtle napkin ring.

How about a couple of cute poodle plaques for your room? OK, it is confession time. For those of you that don't know this about ME yet.....I LOVE poodles....so I think this is truly a Simply Irresistible....Friday Find! I am the proud owner of a poodle that is so playful (loves to play ball) and funny. We named her "Sunshine" because she certainly adds a lot of sunshine to our lives. She is actually the third poodle I have had. They make wonderful pets! But, these poodle plaques would make wonderful accessories in any room, where you need to add just that little special touch. These are available at Blue Creek Home.

Need to add some artwork on your walls? Don't know what to put? What a great way to add to your decor with framed toile wallpaper. I love this idea! This could even be one of those DIY projects if you are feeling a little creative. Be sure to let me know if you try this out!

And on this FABULOUS Friday, I will leave you with this...
