What Makes My Heart Skip a Beat! ECS Blog Party

Majestic, French style armoires are my favorite. But I'm completely addicted to armoires in general! Whenever I see one I'm unexplainably pulled towards it. And I just have to look at the price tag of course!

Long, white flowing silk curtains are a must. And the longer the better! I hang all my curtains way up high. Makes the room taller and more elegant. And then puddle them on the floor.

Gustavian style furniture is so fairytale like. It is so whimsical and yet so very sophisticated!

Blue jeans are like armoires for me. I just can't seem to get enough of them!
Pair the jeans with diamonds and you've got the perfect outfit!
And of course which girl could possibly resist that Tiffany blue little box topped with a beautiful white bow?! Aquamarine is my favorite color. I love all shades of it. From the brighter signature Tiffany to the silver sage from Restoration Hardware.

These are my favorite things. They stop me in my tracks everytime!! Thanks Etsy Cottage Style for the great topic!


  1. I love everything on your list!!!
    Beautiful pics...love,Tami

  2. That was a great post! I also love armoires but have only one, in my bedroom. I should send you a picture of the armoire I found for my sister at a garage sale for $20.00!!! Killer!!! (I must really love her...LOL)
    I also love that white chair, I would love to find a couple for my living room!
    Anyway, beautiful picts and fun, fun post!
    Thank you so much for participating today!

  3. I love everything on your list too! Beautiful pics and what a sweet little 'fur baby' you have♥


  4. I could just luv your pup! How sweet. Love the crisp white amoire too. And oh, yes blue jeans are a staple for the creative mind!

  5. I love all your favorite things. Great pics!! But I must say that I absolutely adore your sweet doggie!! What a doll!

  6. Knock Knock, it's MaidenShade Visiting! Wonderful pictures. Your blog is just lovely!


    My heartskipping-est thing is in my sidebar. More are:

    - Family coming to Visit Unexpectedly
    - Pressies
    - Opening Unusual Embellishments I've Purchased

  7. I think FiFi would be on my list of Favorites too. I had a dog named Francesca who weighed 2.6 lbs. with a major attitude. I used to speak only Italian to her to keep up with my second language because none of my children or husband speak. So, then that would make Francesca a bilingual dog..no?? Stop by & visit my heart-skipping treasures.

  8. I am such a Blue Jean girl too! Great post fun..huh



  9. Great favorites! Fifi is a doll! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the sweet comment on my blog.

  10. Your little Fifi made my heart skip a beat too! I also share your love of armoires. I confiscated an old beat up one in my husband's office and shabbied it up really nice. He didn't recognize it when I got through with it. Stop by and visit me sometime www.thevintagevignette.blogspot.com

  11. I like your info.
    Thanks for sharing.

  12. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work.
