Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!

Baby Swans are Growing!
A few weeks ago I showed you the baby swans that live on our lake, and today I thought I'd give you an update on their progress. Saturday night after we got home from our camping trip, we took a little boat ride on the lake (even though I was dead tired, I really wanted to see "our" swans"!). I took the camera out, and a couple slices of bread, and sure enough, we spotted them near shore. After bringing the boat to a stop, the swans started swimming over, guess they knew we had a snack for them! It's so funny, because if they see a boat that has stopped, they will occasionally approach, figuring they are going to get a hand out!
Here they are, swimming towards us. I think it's just so darn cute how they all swim in a row! That's Papa Swan in the lead, always the protector!
Wow! They have really grown alot since I took their pictures a few weeks ago! Pretty soon they will be at the awkward "teenage" phase!
That's a piece of bread mid air (upper right), in case you were wondering! :)
They are just so cute! Their feathers still look downy, but they are starting to turn a bit grayish.
Well, since it's raining, I think I just may have to head to Hobby Lobby today & get some more craft supplies. Good excuse, huh?!
Hope you ladies have a great week!
