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!

Care to Join Me for a Cup of Tea?
I wanted to share with you today our tea cup collection. Actually, it belonged to hubby's mother, and when she passed away hubby inherited it. Sadly, I never got to get to know her, as she passed away long before we met. Anyway, hubby made her a cabinet to hold her collection many years ago. It was his own design. I am so lucky I married a handy guy!
Here is a closer look at some of my favorites in the collection:
I love birds, so of course I really like this robin cup & saucer from Wisconsin. Many of the tea cups she was given were picked up by friends & family when they traveled, so there are many that represent various states. Hubby gave her quite a few of these, so the collection has even more meaning to us!
This cutie is from Holland, Michigan.
Oh a side note: Have any of you seen "Eat, Pray, Love" yet? We don't go the the movies very often, but we went & saw it yesterday. I really didn't know anything about the movie, other than it was filmed in Italy, India and Bali. I like Julia Roberts, but the main reason I wanted to see it was because hubby & I went to Italy 10 years ago & fell in love with it! We can't wait to return! So the scenery of Italy and Bali were very pretty in the movie. But it was very slooooow, and very long! (as in 2 hours and 15 minutes long!!) If I had known, I would've just waited for the dvd to come out. Oh well, that's just my opinion!
Have a great night!
