I Love Bows





I have this thing for bows. I can't help it. I just love them. So you can imagine how excited I was last month when I saw the new release Designers Guild fabric & wallpaper collection ...there's a bow fabric {see image below} in the new collection which I am completely in love with. We have ordered it for our windows at Black & Spiro...I can hardly wait for its arrival!!

I love bows too...hence my little business www.ellaandkate.com.au Because bows on little girls are as sweet as they come.

Welcome back from your short break. Nice to feel so loved and needed.

Cheers

Dear Anna
Even though I knew that you were saying goodbye to the blog world I have still been checking in to your blog 'just in case'. And tonight I was very pleasantly surprised to see that you're back! I don't usually leave comments but today I felt compelled to do so. I absolutely love your blog and couldn't imagine not having it for a bit of daily inspiration. I find I can loose myself for hours in the world of blogging and your ABT blog is right on the top of my list.
Sometimes it is nice to take a break and is much needed. However I'm so pleased that you were given the encouragement and support you needed to come back to your avid readers sooner rather than later. Thankyou!!

Oh, and I love bows too. Totally fabulous.

Take care and happy blogging for many years to come!! Sarah Rxx

Kylie Minogue recently designed a collection of bedding for a department store here in Ireland and bows were a big feature of her collection, Here is one example, they were available on beautiful charcoal colours aswell: http://www.snugnights.co.uk/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=227&idcategory=90

Love that first picture - so quirky and full of joy!
Happy to have you back, and I hope that you do find the balance that you seek - it's such a tricky thing isn't it?!

So lovely to see you blogging, Anna. Blogworld wouldn't be the same without you! You are a true delight. Bows are every girls prerogative, aren't they?! And love the "Skillful Sailor" quote and the picture is so chic! Shanyn xo

Lots and lots of bows on my blog, maybe I should send you one to keep you going! I love bows too, probably too much!

I love bows too. I'm a masters student in fashion and last month I took a Computer Aided Design class and designed my own fabric with black bows and pink polka dots. Bows are so flirty and feminine. It makes me happy to be a girl.

ooh love bows too.. one of my favorite wallpapers I used had a white background with pale blue bows... I used it in my daughter's room when she was young.
Your post brought back sweet memories.

Thankyou for inspiring and motivating me again.

I wish I could pull off a bow tie like that man in the second picture. Maybe pick up a pipe while I'm at it.

Glad to have you back!
