All Frilly...

A while back I did a post on ruffles. Ruffles can be understated, but *frilly* to me is all-out! Here are some examples of *FRILLY* things.... Are you a *frilly girl* or would you be willing to try it in your home?  Frilly pillows; Frilly White Chocolate Cake; Frilly topiary made from coffee filters - Click here to purchase; Frilly shoes - Louboutin; Frilly Lampshade is actually a scrubby - click here for instructions; Frilly chicken - White Frizzle polish hen!

Oh I'm a frilly kinda girl too, but I don't really like frilly clothes, I adore those frilly cushions though and that frilly hen is amazing, never saw one of them before. Thanks for sharing.

I love Ann Gish bedding!!!

Oh, and that coffee filter topiary is to die for! Ruffles are frilly and yet very classic. I use them all the time.

with love,
Olivia

Hi Janean,
You know that I love ruffles and girlie, girlie.
I am in love with those round pillows and I might try making one.
The more ruffles the better!
Lovely post.

Janean,
Not too frilly, I like more of a classic look, but how about that cake. That is MY kind of cake. All icing and little cake :)

I think I would pass on all of them! Though the frizzly little fowl is cute!

Deb said...

I love frillies...love the bird..those shoes are what i call sitting shoes...you wear them somewhere where you just sit and look cute....LOL

becky said...

I like a ruffle here and there, but am not at all frilly. I have had frilly hens, though, and they are cute!

I'm kind of a frilly person to a point. I do love those pillows but I wouldn't have a place for them. Those colors are gorgeous. The chocolate cake would go well in my tummy. That coffee filter topiary is charming. Those shoes are fabulous but not on me, but my sister would wear them beautifully, she only wears heels! I can't say I like that lamp at all but the little guy at the bottom is adorable. Where are his eyes, poor thing can't see!

Janean -

I prefer thrills over frills,but I do like that bedding. The chicken looks like he washed too soon after a bad perm!

Have a great day.

Mimi said...

Not very frilly, but I do like those pillows!

kpaints said...

I have never been a frilly person but I loved everyone! Those pillows are to die for....and that chicken...so cute, but how do you keep him clean? lol

Julie Harward said...

I have always liked them...they are back in a big way aren't they?! LOL to the chicken....come say hi stranger! :D

Cindy said...

Frau said...

Lovely frilly things! I love wearing frilly shirts distracts from my muffin top! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Bernie said...

I love a few ruffles but no not really into frilly in fact I look like I should be visiting the Pig and Whistle in anything too frilly.
......LOL...........:-) Hugs

Julie said...

I like frilly to an extent. :-) well, like the shoe......uh....that's a little bit over the top for me! heh heh...
But frills and ruffles and (flounces)?? are quite feminine to me...so I like them for that reason. And I have seen a Polish Frizzle chicken.. so unusual looking. wow...
I've seen a tutorial on how to make a coffee filter wreath... very easy! Looks very pretty.
I love ruffley flowers too (the real kind!)
Thanks for a post today! loved it! Hugs

Just Breathe said...

I'm not a frilly person but your examples are very pretty. I love the chicken. I follow a blog that has chickens like that and others that are so pretty. Have a nice Sunday.

Karen said...

Ummm, no, not so frilly here. But I will put and give them to baby girls anytime. :)

The Farmers Oldest Daughter said...

I am not a frilly girl, my style is blue jeans and t-shirts but I love your pictures.

Thanks for sharing all of your glorious pictures.

Ginny Marie said...

That cake looks too pretty to cut...almost! Love the frills!

Technodoll said...

I'm a "no frills" kinda girl in all senses of the word... and that chicken? is scary. people should leave that sculpting to poodles! :-o

Suz said...

I didn't think I liked ruffles until I got a gorgeous orange ruffled sleeveless blouse..
I call it my cha cha blouse....
too bad this year I can't button it!!!!!!!!!!!

Frilly pillows are just divine! ~ Angela

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Hello Janean! I'm not a frilly girl but I do like ruffles. I would try some of these things in my guest room but I think my DH (who goes along with about everything I try!) would NOT be thrilled about living with these in our master bedroom. Love that pillow! Have a wonderful Monday...hopefully with sunshine! Take care. Maura

Barb said...

I love the topiary! I made a wreath with old pages from a book that looks very similar . . . I'm wondering if I could do the same thing, and make a topiary? Something to think about. Yummy post!

Hugs,
Barb

Loving the ruffled chicken the very best! I love to see ruffles and like to wear them some, would really rather wear something with bows on it. As far as decorating, although I think they would be beautiful in some rooms or certain settings, they just wouldn't work in my home. I do like those pillows! And is that one picture a real cake? wow..... have that for your birthday! :)

I actually tried to do a ruffle on a pillow but the fabric was too heavy. I'm still working on a design...with a ruffle! ♥

Lily Robinson said...

I am a reserved frilly. I find the older I get, the frillier I get! I absolutely must finish my master bath and show you! You will love it. It is definitely NOT masculine!

Blue Creek Home said...

Wow! My ruffled lampshade is in such good 'ruffle' company. It was a fun surprise seeing my photo this morning!

Love your blog!

Marla said...

I'm not too frilly BUT I want that chicken!

Sarah said...

Love to see all these frills, but I'm not a frilly girl. My wardrobe is pretty tailored and our home is definitely not frilly or girly. I have a friend who is single, and her home decor makes her the queen of frilly.
