Hello Friends:

I took a little time off from blogging, to catch up on my orders. I was running behind, so I needed to concentrate and work very hard. Made lots of tags, knobs, and shipped them all.  I also made some steampunk lamps, (they take a while to make).

Now to decorating:  some beautiful inspiration for all of you to decorate your homes for the fall and holidays.
HGTV,  love the simple
way to welcome your guests at your
cottage dining roomSarah Richardson, company is coming, great table setting.

Another entrance idea from HGTV, just beautiful.

Hope you enjoyed the inspiration photos, and have a great Sunday,

Hello Friends:

Fall is here and the beautiful leave's changing season in the NE.

I made some "Dreams" tags for a customer and I'm really into "dreams" myself.  Some of my dreams
came to pass these past two weeks, others are still
great "dreams" in my "dream board"

I made a lot of progress this week, painted and distressed the second French desk.  Sold my beautiful typewriter, its so cute, but is gone to a new home.  I worked on an antique tray and a beautiful antique frame.  It could be a chalkboard or a mirror.  I'm leaving it blank. Its very ornate, and I used ASCP, gesso and some antique glaze.
I want to keep them because they came out beatiful.

On another note, I saw this house and its going up on my board, love the open space and the stone fireplace. Its just a beautiful house.

love the kitchen ,
love the bathroom.

This is a beautiful place to enjoy some good music, grab a cup of tea, on a chilly night and enjoy the music.  This is the house from the movie
"The Notebook"  I could watch this movie every weekend, love the different houses and the Nursing Home, sign me up!!!!!  a dream nursing home.

the famous blue shutters, I love blue and white.

I'm getting a blog overhauled, and there are some more surprises in the horizon coming soon.

love to you all

Hello friends:

Fall is here, foliage, beautiful blue skies, school days, and halloween.
I saw a beautiful room for kids,homework,of course a great big chalkboard in a red frame, just
gorgeous DYI job at "keeping it cozy"
and I had to share it with you.

Also, I want to show you this basket decorated with burlap ribbon and my favorite number tags.

You can get them in my shop, they sell like hotcakes, I can't keep up with them.  They measure 2" wide and they are nice and thick, all handmade by me,

Have a happy Saturday,
