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!

In Memory of Our Beloved Emily

Our hearts are broken.  We lost our sweet little Emily last week, very unexpectedly.  Emily shared our lives for nearly 10 years.  She was never "just a dog", she was our constant companion, our best friend, a huge and important part of our family.  We took her everywhere.  I never had kids, so Emily was like our child. There are no words to say how devastated we are at her passing.  That it happened so quickly, and over 1,000 miles away from home, in what should have been a fun trip, made it all the more difficult.
We just returned to our home here in Michigan, after being gone for 6 weeks.  Our house is empty, we are numb.
