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!

Sweet Blogging Gifts

Bonjour Mes Amis,
Hope you are enjoying your day so far!
I was so excited to receive the most wonderful package in the mail yesterday!  My sweet blogging friend Susan over at Evelyn & Rose sent me these gorgeous gifts!
 Susan shares my love of blue and white, and all things French!  If you've not visited her blog before, be sure to head on over, as you are in for a treat!  Her home is as lovely as her sweet and thoughtful spirit is!
Just look at this gorgeous crown fabric that she sent me!  Love! Glittery light blue crowns on a white background!  I will think of something exta special to create with it!  And this equally beautiful light blue lace trim.  Light blue has been my very favorite color since I was a young girl (many moons ago!).  Also some tres chic tea died Eiffel Tower tags, oh so pretty shabby chic floral tags and pencils..........
 And this gorgeous red & white damask ribbon, perfect for Valentine crafting!
And, these beautiful floral magnets that I adore!
I was so touched by Susan and her thoughtfulness!
I am continually amazed at all of the wonderful kindred spirits here in blogland.  You all have truly enriched my life, and I feel blessed to have gotten to know so many of you!
Thank you again, Susan! You know my taste well:) You are the best!

Hi Donna, What a darling gift package of goodies from your friend. Love the blue and white too and that crown fabric is so pretty. Such a thoughtful and deserving gift for sweet and dear you.

Thank you for your well wishes. I am doing better with the flu, but pleurisy has set in my lungs and still not 100 percent. It is just going to take time and rest.
I am so ready to be better.

Hugs, Celestina Marie
