Beauty & the Slob

I am a Slob. I make this confession being of sound? mind.

I love to decorate my home, my studio, my back porch and gardens...I like my surroundings to be pretty and neat.

But, for some reason, when it comes to me, I am a Slob. I opt for comfort over fashion. And those who know me well, know that when I am not leaving the house, I am in my pajamas...24/7.

So, why is it.....

....that when I see these beautiful gowns, hats, etc., I swoon. Look at that pink gown....and all that beautiful feathery fluff! *swoon*

And this one...I think this one is my favorite.


more swooning....

So, here I sit, in my pajamas, swooning. What are you swooning over today?

LOL, I have tried staying in my pj's all day but I just have to have a shower and get dressed or I don't feel awake :) I do sit around for a couple of hours in my pj's though, on the computer in the morning.
I can't think of anything I am swooning over right now, still havn't finished my first coffee :)

I'm right here with you in my pj's and swooning over gowns... It takes till the afternoon for me to get dressed unless I have to run somewhere in the morning. That will soon change once school starts though. So I am enjoying being lazy while it last.

I am joyful at this post and agree 110% and I am swooning at vintage journals that call to be loved. Thanks for always scattering such beauty. Blessings Debi.

I swoon over gardens and beautiful fabrics. Having been a custom formal-wear seamstress for years, I know those dresses aren't that comfortable but when you look that good I guess you don't care. I wear cut-off sweats to bed and can get away with leaving them on for as long as needed!!!! Happy day to you!! Meg

I can gt "into" something, realize it's 2 or 3 o'clock and still in jammies, hair not combed, and haven't even had breakfast, not to mention lunch. I still reign as tge "Queen of Comfort" in my whole family..LOL :-)

Giggle, love your pink slippers! Mine are my best friends. If we spent half the time we spent on the computer, browsing through decorating magazines, or primping our homes with the perfect vignettes, we would look like queens! I think we're just tired by the time we multitask that our pj's bring us comfort AND save us time. Quiet time in the morning before the kids awaken, brings me comfort (in my PJ's and slippers, of course!)
