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!

Sunset on the Sound

Hello, hope you are having a wonderful week!  It really has been flying by, hasn't it?
Last night, we had the most amazing sunset, and I thought you'd like to see some of the photos that hubby and I snapped.
 Believe it or not, these are unretouched photos!  The sky was just gorgeous, and the sunset just kept getting prettier and prettier!
 What a tranquil spot we live in!  As tough as it was to leave our home state of Michigan, there is not a day that goes by out here that I don't marvel at our beautiful surroundings!
 I really love the way the Olympic Mountains look at dusk. It's amazing how they change thru out the day, depending on the lighting.
We feel fortunate to live in such a beautiful place!  Eagle sightings are a daily occurrence, and an occasional whale sighting is beyond thrilling!

 I hope that where ever you live, and whatever you are doing, you take some time out of your day and just enjoy nature!
Have a great day!

How funny, Donna. Just as I opened your blog I looked out the window and we have one of the most beautiful sunsets of the year. You are blessed to have that beautiful state to call your own for a few months! xo Diana

Awesome- love that you are enjoying your stay there and taking it all in. Eagles and whales sound so weird- LOL. I have a hawk here, but that would be so different. Love the mountains and the water there.
