  2. Hi Bluebell,
    Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. If you Google Shabby Chic, you'll get many descriptions of what it means, but they're all a bit nebulous! I would describe the look as distressed (what you call "ruffed"), lace, pearls, chiffon ribbon, often slightly faded-looking, subtle sparkle. So your pretty creation is just right.

    Now I'm off to see if I can find where that gorgeous bluebell wood is. My family lives in Surrey and they have lots of beautiful woods like that - maybe you're near there!
