Merci

Merci for taking time to come and visit and leave kind words.. I love hearing from each one of you....
I am always looking for budget friendly inspiration and magical things to share. There is not one thing better than finding and sharing something that speaks to you and make your heart beat somewhat faster.
As of late I look to search or create French inspired treasures... Touches here and there seem to add just a romantic appeal. I also enjoy vintage papers... I love the aging and textures and find most very budget friendly for collecting...
Burlap and grain sacks seems to have sparked a passion once again... I used them 30 years ago in a different manner when I had more primitives not the vintage I have a love now. They are all in my eyes full of character. The one thing we need to remember.. Lovely items need not have to cost a fortune... Rusty, timeworn objects can look absolutely fabulous when married with a bit of glam. Lovely fabrics can add __Ooh La La__ when introduced with the burlap and grain sacks.. The marriage is perfect even thought they have nothing in common. I am on the search for just the right touches to add to spaces that holiday has been removed from... I have rearranged a few vignettes and given them a fresh look... Old photos, postcard, bottles, buttons, jewelry, and trinkets are just a few of my passions for tucking and altered art creations... These all create sweet decorations and eye candy. As I search and seek I will be sharing as many of you do also.. I am looking forward to a New Year of making new friends and finding many new lovely blogs..

Marietta,
Your style is such an inspiration. So much prettier than some store bought thingy from Walmart. Give me antique/thrift store finds anyday of the week!

Here in the Netherlands we are fortunate enough to have many pancake restaurants, mostly old farmhouses. There's one near to where we live where they keep all kinds of old items, such as kettles, grainsacks, pots, copper spoons and such, always a pleasure to go and have a bite/look there! Somehow this crossed my mind while reading your post! Have a great day, take care, Ira
