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!

Scenes From Around the Campground

Hey ya'll!
It's a bit of a drizzly day here in Savannah, so we changed our plans a bit.  We were going to go to a flea market that I was really looking forward to, as well as a farmer's market down town, but didn't feel like walking around in the rain.  So, we plan on visiting an aqarium just a few minutes from us, that we've heard good things about.  I'm not complaining about the rain, though!  I will take that over our usual Michigan snow and cold!
At any rate, thought you might like to see a few shots from around the campground!
 The state park is amazing here!  Lots of hiking trails thru a jungle like woods.  We are loving all of the trees draped with moss.  As well as the palm trees!  So part of our daily routine here has been to take long morning walks with our Emily on the trails (though not today, it was a bit too soggy!).  She is loving it as much as we are!
 Isn't this view pretty?  This is along one of the hiking trails, which runs along the intra coastal waterway.
 This has got to be one of the nicest state parks we've ever camped in!  The sites are huge, it's so nice and quiet and private here.  They do an excellent job of maintaining it, too.
 So this is our home away from home!  Notice our little palm tree?
 I snapped these last two photos of Miss Emily this morning.  She is peacefully napping after our walk.  Notice her wet ears?
"Aww Mom, did you have to wake me up for a picture?"
We had her groomed the other day at Petsmart.  She was getting a little shaggy, and would be way too wooly by the time we get home, if we hadn't have taken her for a new "do"!
I think the groomer did a great job, not to mention the fact that Emily is much easier to keep clean now!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Palmtrees, yes someone know to how to short in the winter(smile).

Your cute Emily has the same relaxingplace as our Zita.

Have a great time and take care

Looks like you're having a great time....Emily, too!!! Love those palm trees!

Oh - You are making me long for the South again! Do you know about chiggers? They are in the Spanish moss (at least in FL). Just make sure you don't fool around with the moss. They are little insects that burrow under your skin and they are MISERABLE and make you itch like crazy!
Miss Emily looks so cute and fresh! Nice grooming job they did- xo Diana

Looks relaxing! Have a great time

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Emily looks like she is enjoying the trip as much as you two! Beautiful area...I remember making forts with the hanging moss as a kid...but never had a problem like NanaDiana talked about, thank goodness!

The campground looks so nice...are there many other campers there?

Emily is such a pretty pup! Love her new "do"!


Karen Mary Butterfly said...

That camp site is amazing!! Beautiful. I love your sweet baby...what a bonus to having a home away from home. Charlie and Lola always have to go to a kennel.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That Emily is a sweetie and I'm so glad she is enjoying our Southern Winter! Lots of rain this year. A very nice campground!

Hi Donna,
What a wonderful day you spent around the camp ground. Your pics are wonderful. Love your campsite Palm Tree, It is just like one we have here by the pool.
The best pic is your darling Emily. What a cutie pie. She is so sweet with her sleepy look at the camera.
Your campsite is beautiful and so glad you are having a wonderful time.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

You seriously have the BEST adventures. Emily really does have a lovely life.

PS. Rumor has it another snow storm is headed to MI on Tuesday. Enjoy your lovely weather, even if it's a tad bit rainy.

Sorry you missed the flea market, but it still looks wonderful there and love your little palm tree! Isn't that the cutest thing? Emily looks all prettied up! She needs a shower cap to take walks in the rain!

Renee said...

Love the palm tree-- your own little oasis! Miss Emily looks adorable!

Sorry you wonderful plans got rained out!! I hope you all snuggled in like Emily! What a great set up to travel in!


Little Miss Maggie said...

What a fantastic vacation you are having, and I bet Emily likes the warmer weather as well. I hope you make it to a flea market before your trip ends. That's my favorite thing to do.
