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!

A Special Request

Hello Ladies,
I hope that you have had a chance to catch your breath a bit now that the holidays are over!  While I love Christmas, I am always ready for it to be over, and to have things put away and the house back in order!

Today I have a special request of you.  My sweet blogging friend Debbie from The Lakehouse has recently been diagnosed with cancer.  Debbie is just the nicest, most thoughtful and kind kindred spirit.  I feel lucky to have met her here in blogland.  Could you please remember Debbie in your thoughts and prayers?  She is scheduled for surgery on the 11th, and has already been thru more heartbreak than I can imagine, as she lost her first husband to cancer some years ago.  Debbie is unable to blog right now, as she feels too ill to use the computer.  Her longtime dear friend Laurie over at  Heaven's Walk   has been keeping us up to date on Debbie, and also has Debbie's address, if you would like to send her a card.  Thanks so much for thinking of Debbie, I know she really appreciates it.

I follow her blog also and remember her posting not too long ago about having health issues. I'm so sad to hear this and will definitely pray for her! Thank you for the update.

I had just heard this myself. I left her a message on her blog. There were a lot of other people showing their concerns so I hope someone will print them out for her to read. She will be in my thoughts. Such a sweet person!
