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!

Another Rough Day at the Office

Hello ladies!
Today I'd like to introduce you to my assistant and faithful companion, Emily.  As you can see, she is hard at work!  The lower level of our home is a walk out, so there is plenty of light, making it the perfect spot for my workroom.  I love wicker, and have Emily's my white wicker love seat and chair down here.

 So, we both enjoy spending alot of time here!  I snapped these photos the other day when Emily was hard at work, helping me on my many projects!  Ok, maybe not helping too much, but she is a good supervisor!
 She even has her own little baby blanket!  Do you think she is spoiled?  I tried my darndest to get her to look at the camera as I was snapping away. The only thing that worked was when I said to her "say cheese!", as she knows what that word means!  (she loves cheese!)
Ok mama, just let me get back to sleep, er, I mean work!!!!

On a different note, I have a little request.  Tomorrow, Ralph, the husband of my sweet friend Cindy over at Cindy Adkins Whimsical Musings, is having surgery.  Many years ago Ralph lost his arm in a work accident. Tomorrow he will undergo surgery on his other arm, which means he won't have any use of it for some time.    You can read about it here.  If you could please keep both Cindy and Ralph in your thoughts and prayers, that would mean so much!  Let's pray for a quick and speedy recovery, and strength for them both!  Thank you very much!!!

Emily is PRECIOUS. Spoiled? Oh, well of course - so are our Molly Brown & Jessie. Is there any other way? (o:

Yes, Ralph is on our prayer list at Church and on our personal prayer list, and Cindy.

Your "baby" is just precious. I can tell she might be just a wee bit spoile! Do you bottle feed her?;>)

I am going to be praying for Cindy and Ralph tomorrow too! xo Diana

Emily is so spoiled. But of course, as she should be. I did not realize this about Cindy's husband Ralph. I will have to reach out to her. Hope all is well.
