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!

Creamy Dreamy Whites!
Hello everyone! Thought I'd share with you what has been keeping me busy for the past several weeks! Saturday is the big day, the Retreat Vintage Market! I've been working my little fingers to the bone, and I am beyond tired! I've had alot of fun painting, decoupaging, and glittering everything in sight! But now I am more than ready to take a break, haha! I painted this antique Queen Anne dresser "Chantilly Lace" (thank you, Sissie!), and will display lots of my creamy treasures atop! Don't look too closely at the background, though. I have this set up in the garage, that's why I blurred it out, to try and disguise all of the "stuff"!:)
One of my favorite things to create are decoupaged pedestal bowls. Hubby actually spotted this vintage one for me (guess I am training him well!). After painting it a nice creamy color, followed by a generous dose of distressing, I decoupaged her with vintage French book pages.
And just look at this gorgeous copy of a vintage French perfume label! Oooh, la, la! I found the label over at the Graphics Fairy, and I think this image has become a new favorite for me.
Lots of shabby goodness!
I am also scattering around Parisian themed postcards (thank you Cindy!!) to further add French flair to my booth. I'll be sure to take tons of photos of the show to share with you all! Take care and have a great weekend!
