  • the following children books (turned into television shows): Little Bear and Angelina Ballerina.  So sweet!  J'adore much.
Basically, I'm a retro/vintage, shabby chic, French country, beach cottage fanatic!  I'm also a grown woman who likes to read children books and watch cartoons before bedtime...  And when it is time for me to sleep, I lay there dreaming about the things that make me smile.  I may even breath a wishful sigh, before sweet sleep sweeps me off my feet.  Also, I enjoy alliterating from time to time.  *B
