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!

Vintage Dishtowel Pillow

Bonjour Mes Amis!
Today I wanted to share with you the prettiest hand sewn pillow that I was lucky enough to win!
 The sweet and very talented Michele over at Something Special surprised me when she contacted me and told me that I was going to be receiving this oh so lovely pillow that she created!  Thank you, Michele, I just love it!
Michele stitched it from a tea dyed vintage flour sack dishtowel, as well as pretty vintage floral fabric.  I just love how she embellished it with gorgeous vintage lace, a crocheted doily, pretty stitching, and the sweetest buttons.
 Michele has an Etsy shop featuring her wonderful pillows, as well as vintage treasures.
 The pillow just so happens to be in my favorite colors of blue, cream, pink, and aqua!
Oh, and I also love the adorable little yo-yo that she made from pink and white fabric!
It looks perfect on my white wicker loveseat in my craft room!
 Isn't it pretty? And aren't bloggers some of the sweetest, most generous people you would ever care to meet?
I sure think so!
 Thank you again, Michele!!
Hope you all are enjoying your day.
Me?  I've been busy for the last several days tending to a bushel of roma tomatoes!
Yes, I said a bushel!
So my food dehydrator has been going nearly non stop (for my version of "sun dried" tomatoes, yum!),
and now I am in the middle of canning a batch of stewed tomatoes.
While I love "putting up" fresh produce, I must admit that I am getting a bit "tomatoed out"!

I love that pillow! You did good getting that one! Have you ever tried freezing your tomatoes? A lot faster and easier than canning them.
