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!

I'm In Romantic Homes Magazine!

 Bonjour Mes Amis,
As a huge fan and long time subscriber of Romantic Homes Magazine, I am beyond thrilled to be included in the February issue of "Site Seeing"!!!  I don't think my feet have touched the ground yet!
 Here I am!  Did I mention how excited I am??!  
I was contacted quite a few months ago by one of the magazine's editors, saying that they would like to feature my blog if I was interested.  Let me see.........hmmmmm........
I am so honored to appear alongside some amazing talents, including Deb Ward Kennedy, of  
homeward found decor.  I had the pleasure of meeting Deb and being in one of her shows on her farm when we lived in Washington State.  So I was really happy to see her featured too!
Actually, I've not even received my issue in the mail yet!  Several blogger friends contacted me to say that had seen my blog in the magazine this week, and I was anxiously awaiting the mail each day.  Well, sweet hubby had to run to the store today, and came back and surprised me with an issue!
So we did the happy dance together!
Gotta run, if my feet can touch the ground, that is!
Have a great weekend!

Congratulations. Although, we aren't surprised because your creations are all so beautiful.

Heck, don't force your feet to walk on the ground, you should be airborne for at least several WEEKS! And we're not talkin' about getting in Hubby's plane. (o:

I think you should celebrate. Maybe champagne and Miss Emily should get a Frosty Paws. It's Friday night, our girls know what that means.....FP tonight.
