Romantic style...lounging in my garden house

When I think of romantic style... it is more of a feeling to me. 
As we lined out the placement for the foundation and of the garden house up in a corner, 
I kept running to all the windows to see if it was in my sight line everywhere! 
The placement had to be perfect,
 angeling it just so to catch the afternoon light.
The archetectural structure is very special... 
I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
 I want to see it everytime I look outside!


My vintage garden house is my favorite place to be in the afternoon.
The natural light coming in from the west is beautiful, it washes the white weathered wood in a warm glow.


Roses are symbolic for romance.
 The pale pink petals are delicately ruffled.
 These are from my garden





I love these hearts just hanging in a cluster layered together, 
they might hint...
 I'm falling for you!



Sentiments of a heart shaped candle in the palest of pink, returns to be lit only for a short while every valentines.


Valentine gifts from my youngest son when he was little, he said one was the mommy and one little one was him!


My favorite vintage latte bowl with two biscotti's to share, layered beneath with pretty squares torn of pink floral fabric.


The scent of these almond biscotti's dippped in chocolate paired with the fragrance of an antique garden rose is like perfume***


This vintage french campaign bed is weathered to perfection! 
My newest vintage find.
 LOVE LOVE LOVE it....

Stuffing a feather bed into the pale pink european vintage duvet is 
simply my idea of
 romantic lounging 101!

A favorite quote of mine from Audrey...
