Welcome To My World!

I am so happy that you have stopped by for a visit!

It is here that I will try to share with you my creations, a bit of my home, my gardens and what inspires me.

Periodically, I will feature those dolls and creations that are available for purchase on my other blog:


Thank you for visiting!
I hope you enjoy your stay here!

We finally got to visit our friend Paula between
Christmas and New Year.
This is one of my highlights during
the Christmas season.
You have seen her wonderful home many times
on Laura's blog at 52 Flea and also at
Carole's blog at Maynard Greenhouse.
Like me, she keeps her Christmas going into January.
Here is a look at her fabulous home...
Girl, you never cease to amaze me!!!!!

The first picture is of an old tool cabinet.
Only Paula could decorate it so charming,
and wouldn't you just love to wake up in this bed?!

Even a lamp base gets elevated to something special
with wonderful trinkets.

Interesting boxes filled with treasures
are everywhere.

I love her wire collection displaying the
sweetest finds.

Love all the great goodies in this shadowbox.

Can anyone imagine having to wear
wire hoops under your dresses?
But it looks charming on a wall or door.
I am honored to find one of my
Christmas stockings so prettily wreathed.

Another wonderful wire display.

What a charming sight.

This must have looked pretty as trim on an old
house, but is even prettier in a bathroom
to hang your favorite towels.

One of Paula's gorgeous bedrooms.
I just want to snuggle in and admire everything.

I am ending this post with this cute little mouse
in a shoe by Cathy Pendelton.
It was my Christmas gift from Paula,
and I love it.
Thank you for letting me share your home.
I treasure our friendship my dear friend!

God bless,

  7. The second bedroom has a ceiling rather like one of mine. It's interesting to see how it has been furnished as I've always had trouble.
