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!

It's a Dog's Life!

Hi All, Katie the Cocker Spaniel here.
My mom said she's been neglectful of her blog as of late.
(what is a blog?  is that something I can eat?????)
She has been more than a little stressed with trying to sell our house and trying to find a new place for us all to live,
and said that her blog has sadly fallen by the wayside.
So I thought I'd pop in as her special guest blogger to say
"Woof"!
And to show you what my idea of the perfect day looks like................

Stretched out in my wicker chaise lounge in the sunroom.........................
(ooops, does this pose make my belly look fat???)

 Seriously, I think it's true when they say the camera adds 10 pounds!!!
 Now if only my mom could take a cue from me, and just chill out for awhile, we'd be all set!
 Oh, I forgot to add that a perfect day also includes lots of tummy rubs:)!
Hopefully my mom will be back soon, talking about her usual favorite stuff like glitter, paint, and thrift shopping......................
Woof, y'all!

Hi Katie...

So glad to hear from you. Thanks for letting us know what your mommy has been up to. I had wondered if your home had sold and maybe you had moved already. Have a really relaxing day and maybe it might rub off on your mommy.

Hugs,
Jan and the PuppyKids ♥

LOL- We should ALL be that lucky to lie around like that without a care in the world...no stress....food provided for us---we could pee anywhere (well, within reason) and someone would scratch us for our pure pleasure. lol Lucky girl!!! xo Diana

Hi Katie, you sure look comfy lounging the day away. So nice of you to post for your busy mom. Give her puppy kisses and make her smile in all the busy times. You sure are a cutie pie. Enjoy the summer and your belly rubs.
Hugs, cm

Hi Katie, boy you sure have the life, laying around and getting your tummy scratched. So sorry to hear that your mom is a little stressed out. But you know with selling the house and finding a new home is very stressful for her. Maybe if she did a little glittering and decorating a few treasures she would feel better.
Well enjoy your summer, Woof woof,
Waldo and Liti
