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!

One Party Animal!

 Yes, it's true!  We have a party animal on our hands!
 Our little cocker spaniel Katie turned two yesterday!  And to celebrate the occasion, what did I do but make her a party hat!  I know, it's ok.  You can call me nutty!  I guess this is what people do for entertainment when they are cooped up inside in the winter time:)
 "What is this thing on my head?????"
 Katie is so fun loving and sweet. She keeps us laughing with her crazy antics all day long!
Don't let that innocent face fool you.  Oh, no!  She is one very mischievous pup!
But, we love her dearly and admit that we spoil her more than just a bit!
 Ooops, looks like this pup is too pooped to party!
Getting her to pose for the pictures, all while wearing a party hat, was no easy feat!
I had to bribe her with treats while I was snapping away:)
 We're always ready for a party here!!!
Have a great day!
And to all of our friends snowed in on the East Coast, stay warm and safe:)

Happy Birthday Katie. She is of course adorable. She's tiny, isn't she. Short little legs.

Have fun down south where it's warm, and sunny.

What really makes this place attractive is the command and competence of the manager and the staff. They were patient and attentive, and offers great advice on every aspect of the planning process. The manager of Chicago Wedding Venues was always responsive within minutes while we were considering them.
