When pondering on what to name my blog.... I thought & thought.... and the color yellow came to me!! A dear friend that has gone to be with the Lord (the color yellow that reminds US of her beautiful and bright smile) gave me the inspiration for the theme . In memory of a wonderful friend.

Don't Get Your Feathers...RUFFLED

I think it would be safe to say that I have a "ruffle crush" ...

RUFFLES :  remind me of romance, the waves dancing on the beach, an added ambiance of texture to your room, sophistication, reminds me of my favorite décor term… "shabby chic", and just plain southern elegance.

Some may think RUFFLES… Samantha you are married now, and not to mention to J. Jay (haha surprisingly enough he is so good when it comes to decorating because he is so easy going) He usually says “yeah, Sam that looks great” and yet and still it might not or he might not even care for it. 
How lucky am I?

(don't know about you but at the moment I am on a budget... so check out this website!! It reminds me of Anthropologie but CHEAPER)

I think that everyone should have something with ruffles in their home....they just make me smile!!


(Urban Outfitters)
You know why this makes me smile?
It makes me think about the Tuxedos from Dumb & Dumber :)

Now this is Shabby Chic :) LOVE IT and the linen material for even more texture!!

This picture reminds me of BRITTANY!!!
The yellow... & an example of true Southern Elegance! 

So I know this maybe a little bit to much for some...but it is just FUN!

This is a great example of how ruffles do not always have to be considered feminine

*both of these would be so cute on a white couch or bed spread just to bring some color and extra texture

Most of you know how much I LOVE THIS

Another one of my FAVS!!!

Well I hope that everyone will consider adding some RUFFLES to their life :) 

I hope that you will read this and truly study it and know how good our God is to us!!!
Romans 8:28 
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

To all of my girls and those that love Brittany...or anyone who has lost someone they care about!!

Our God works in amazing ways that are beyond our understanding! Although, everyone grieves differently may we all lean on God's truth and word... ESP. Romans 8:28
We all know that Brittany & Shep loved God so I truly believe that God worked out THE GOOD for them according to his purpose... Definitely bringing me closer to the Lord! I know that God will work so strong in the Shepard & Pugh families because they love the Lord so much! I pray for their strength & understanding everyday and ask that you please continue to pray for them daily! 

I want to share some photos with you!! I will forever cherish these pictures for my dear friend Brittany was always there for me & I know she will always be!!!!! 

*She was helping my photographer on my wedding day*

These photos warm my heart!!!  SUCH CARE DID SHE TAKE
See... God truly blessed me with a wonderful friend and I know that he will continue to bless us all through Brittany's spirit!

Have a blessed day!!! I think I am going to enjoy this beautiful day the Lord has given us and relax at the pool :)


  1. I'm a ruffle girl, too. The majority of my shirts have ruffles on them. I found a great pillow on etsy that I'm still wanting that had ruffles. Cute bathing suit, too!

  2. OMG! I love ruffles. I just love everything you posted.
    These are great pictures of your friend, Brittany. What great memories to have.
