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!

Have a Very Maui Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It sure is hard to believe that Christmas is just right around the corner, isn't it?  Now that hubby and I are living in the Pacific Northwest, with no snow and fairly mild temps, not only does it not feel like Christmas, but it doesn't look like it either!  But hey, I'm not complaining, I'm definitely not a snow person!  This Christmas will seem even more different, as we are headed to Maui in a few short days to celebrate the holidays!  I've never been anywhere remotely warm at Christmas, let alone somewhere tropical for the holidays, so it will indeed seem strange!  But a good strange!!
We are renting the same condo that we stayed in two winters ago, so this will be our view for the next week or so!  Wish I could take you with me!  I'm taking my laptop (gotta get my blogging fix in once and while, can't go cold turkey that long!).  So hopefully I'll be able to share some photos with you of what we are up to!
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas, and a Very Happy New Year!!

Oh my gosh! This is indeed a Merry Christmas! The view reminds me of home (Philippine Beaches). I am sure you are going to have a wonderful time! What a great view. Enjoy!!

I am so happy that you can take this trip because you aren't going home for Christmas. I'll be basking there in those breezes right along with you. I can just picture you in your coconut bra and grass skirt now. Poor hubby will be beside himself! xo Diana

How fabulous, Donna! I can't wait to see pictures of your special get-away. Christmas hugs!

PS. West MI is looking pretty green this year. You aren't missing any snow here either.

Donna, I hope you enjoy your Christmas in Maui....what's not to love about Hawaii? LOL!!!

It is quite dreary here in lower MI so you're not missing much here.

I like your Christmas tree and how you decorated it!

Love, Karen

How wonderful to be able to go to Maui for Christmas!!!
If you can't have the snow might as well get the sunshine!!!
Enjoy your Holidays and will be looking forward to seeing pictures of Hawaii since I have never been there.
Lucky you
Merry Christmas
