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!

Savannah Bound

Bonjour, Y'all!
We've left cold and very snowy Michigan behind, and headed south to Savannah in our motor home for a little break!
Thank goodness, we pulled out just in time.  The day after we left home, almost a foot and a half of snow fell!
 We're soaking up every last bit of sun while we can:) 
This is our fourth trip to Savannah, we just love the state park here where we're camping.
While the weather is cool for down here, it is a huge improvement from back home in the Midwest!
So we've shed our parkas, scarves, boots and gloves.
 It's subtropical down here, full of beautiful and huge palmettos, palm trees, and lots of moss draped live oaks.
 This is our home away from home!
The sites are large and private and oh so quiet.  I've brought some craft projects along, so I will be a happy camper!
 It's supposed to warm up by the weekend. 
  The campground has some amazing and long hiking trails which we love taking Katie our cocker spaniel on.
 Sorry about the glare in the photo below.  Notice Katie on the dash?  That is one of our favorite perches!
Stop back in a few days, and I'll share some pics of gorgeous and historic downtown Savannah!
For all my friends affected by the winter storms, stay warm, safe and cozy!

So glad that you made it out in time to escape the bad weather. I know all three of you are enjoying that lovely camp site. Bet Katie is glad that her feet aren't so cold from all that snow.
Enjoy yourself's and take in the warmth.

Great shot of you and Katie and I love where she perches in the motor home.

Enjoy every moment on your beautiful southern trip! I can't wait to see more pictures. It was zero degrees when I drove Josie to school this morning!

I sure am glad you made it down there safe and sound! It looks just wonderful! Katie sure is one lucky girl! She is so cute on her "navigator's perch".
Enjoy yourself and I hope it gets as warm as you'd like!
