I love beauty and beautiful things .... I figure that if you have to have something, why not have it beautiful ... from utility items like peg-bags & ironing board covers to things like picture frames and dog beds. I think that if you have to see/use something everyday, why not let it be a pleasure to look at!
My favorite story as a child was beauty and the beast and it still holds a special place in my heart and is my favorite fairy tail ... and yes, roses are my favorite flower and scent! I think being beautiful on the inside is so important. The more we are beautiful on the inside, the more our beauty shines out of us.
