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!

Dreamy Tags

As soon as I spotted the latest gorgeous tags that Becky from Timewashed had created, I could hardly wait to buy them for myself!
The tags are even more beautiful in person, full of so many details and layers of creamy, dreamy lace.
If you haven't visited Becky's blog or Etsy shop, you are in for a treat!
I purchased two of her tags, and they are truly works of art.

The base of each tag is wood, so they are sturdy and substantial.
I really love Becky's idea of white washing the burlap background!
I've been drooling over all of the gorgeous trims, lace, and bling.

 Love the butterfly.

 Let your faith take wing..........................
 And I love the fine tuile "fringe" on the bottom!  It makes me think of a ballerina's tutu:)

 The second tag that I purchased is heart shaped, and features a gorgeous creamy fabric flower.

 It looks perfect here in the little vignette I created in our bedroom.
 It's obvious that Becky puts her heart into all of her creations!
 Just look at the snippets of gorgeous vintage lace, petite pearly buttons, velvet ribbon, and even a silk sari ribbon.  And don't forget about the bling!
Thank you Becky for inspiring us all!

Sweet Donna,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share the tags I created for you in such a lovely way. You have truly blessed my heart, and I am so delighted that you take joy in them!

Oh they are lovely Donna, I can see why you wanted them. I have not been to Becky's blog, but I am going to check it out.
Hoping you are having some warm weather. We are in the high 90's - I guess Spring just passed us up and went directly into August weather. I fear it's going to be a very HOT HOT summer and no water.
Have a great weekend.
