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!

We're Paris Bound!

Bon jour, Mes Amis!
Guess what?  This week hubby and I are headed to our very favorite city in the world, Paris!  
I have a "big" birthday coming up next week 
(I won't tell you which one it is, but it is quite the milestone!  Yikes, where on earth did the time go?)
and rather than having a party, I told hubby that I wanted to be climbing this on my big day:
 We'll be hanging out here:
 Shopping at our favorite markets..............
 Eating lots of this:
 Spending lots of time at sidewalk cafes.........
 Eating lots of this.........
 And visiting favorite cathedrals.
We always fly standby (hubby is retired from the airlines), so keeping our fingers crossed that we make it on our flights!
I will be sure to take lots of pictures to share with you when we return!
Au revoir!

Have a wonderful trip and happy birthday. I, too, had a big birthday, May 8, 60th. No trip to Paris for me. Sigh.

What a wonderful way to spend your birthday. I'm sure your camera will be tagging along too. I can't wait!! I have a feeling I'm five years behind you. Josie asked me tonight if I was really 30 years old than Emma.
