Feathering Your Nest

Dear Friends

Thank you for tuning in!  The holidays will be here soon.  I have been "Feathering My Nest"!  Finishing projects and preparing for the holidays.  So much to do and so little time and energy.  I spent this past weekend with my daughter for her birthday, we always have fun and went picin at Michael's 80% off flower bin. Can't wait to create with those faux flowers, for the winter!  I'm feathering my nest and finally created a beautiful needle point pillow from a Friday Goodwill  Find.  I'm working hard to get it all done, and if you don't accomplish everything you want to do, "After all...tomorrow is another day"!

Horses Tale

Dear Friends

Thank you for always tuning in and I love sharing my beautiful "Goodwill Finds"!  This find is a Shabby rocky horse all painted up with chalk paint and a horses tale!  I know, tail, but my Goodwill Finds are all about tales for me almost, Fairy Tale.  Creating and making something cheap and more beautiful.  Yes, I created a horses tail, what do you think?  My first Goodwill Find in the background of the rocky horse, my beautiful angel wings made out of wire coat hangers and a lace shower curtain.  One of my favorite Friday Goodwill Finds.  Can't wait to use this in my shabby Christmas decor, are you getting ready, that is for Christmas? Stay tune always more shabby beauty to come...

Fall In Love

Dear Friends

Thank you for tuning in are you ready to "Fall In Love"! I want to share a quote, "If you Love something, it will work, That's the only rule."  Bunny Williams, Interior Designer. You see I share Bunnies philosophy because sometimes cost can be a factor so most of my living room is "Shabby" or "Vintage" but "I have to Love It"! To me no matter how big the house or how small the cottage, or the budget,  if you love it, it will work.

Shabby Fairy Tale

Dear Friends

I wanted to share a story with you, I started my blog out of grief and life changes but before that I fell in love with "Shabby"!  I bought a book from an antique store and read and fell in love with Rachel, Shabby Chic!  I read her story about her and her mum! Her mum repaired dolls and her customers would come for miles to have their shabby doll parts repaired.  I also loved that Rachel shared her memories of antiquing with her parents.  I did not know at the time what the word "Shabby" meant but when I looked up the meaning I feel in love again, you know why?   I love making things beautiful again and I love pink, and I knew one day I would like to meet "Shabby Chic".

Serving Up Fall

Dear Friends

It seems every post lately there is something horrific going on in our world and its hard to stay focused on the positive. Don't you agree?  I made a promise to myself and my mother who I miss terribly, you see she was my friend, mentor and that person who gave me unconditional love.
