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!

Moving On

Hi everyone,
I sure have missed everyone in blogland, and hope you haven't thought that I've fallen off the face of the earth.
Thought I would do a quick update to say that hubby and I finally found a new home down in beautiful western North Carolina.
We will be moving to a cute town that is very dog friendly, and has lots of neat shops and sidewalk cafes.
(Our cocker spaniel Katie has already made lots of friends while we were down house hunting last week!)

Since I am not one to gloss over anything, or candy coat the truth, I will say that this move is a hard one.  It is not something that I welcomed or wanted.  Leaving a home that I love, and my big craft room, and the gardens that I have tended here the last 15 years is going to be difficult. Even harder is leaving family and friends, especially my 88 year old mom. But, we will be just a little over 600 miles away from Michigan, so I know that there will be visits back and forth.
For me change is hard.  I am not talking small changes like a new hairstyle or paint color on the walls.  I mean big life changes.
But, I do look forward to getting settled into our new place, decorating it just the way I want, and sharing it all with you!
I've missed you all!
One really great thing about our new home is that the former owner had a wonderful, light filled artist studio at the back of the house, overlooking the yard and woods.  So that will be my creative space!  It seems that God had this place in mind just for us, as He knew just how important creating is to me, and how I already am missing my craft room here.
So for now we are very busy packing and getting ready for our move.
Tomorrow we are closing on our home here in Michigan, something that I am dreading and have such an oh so heavy heart.
Then 10 days later we are on the road to North Carolina.
So please visit again, once we are settled, as I am looking forward to sharing our new place with you.
