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!

Artist Behind the Etsy Feature

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are enjoying the first weekend of summer!
Awhile back, Kathy from Creative Home Expressions asked me if I would be interested in having my Etsy shop featured in her weekly series, called "The Artist Behind the Etsy".  Not only was flattered, but I super excited as well!
Etsy is such an important part of my life, and I know that it truly means alot to so many of you who may have boutiques there as well, or who love to shop on Etsy!

So I am honored to be the feature artist today!  I would love for you to check it out here!
Thank you again, Kathy!  You are awesome for supporting us all!

I thought I'd share with you one of the latest additions to my shop, this gorgeous vintage Syroco chalkboard/mirror combo!
It began life a gaudy gold, and I think looks oh so much better now that I've painted her a pure white!
 So many pretty details, and a unique double frame.
 The best part is she pulls double duty!  I added heavy duty chalkboard vinyl to the back side of the mirror. for two looks in one!
 Have a great day, looking forward to seeing what you all have been up to!

Love this mirror and I love that it can be a mirror or a chalkboard. It looks very pretty in white, too.

The mirror is great. i love how you painted it and then flip it over and you have a chalkboard - wonderful idea.
Happy Summer and have a great week.
Any nibbles on the house?
