HAPPY FALL

Well, well, it's been a while since I've blogged
I can't believe it's fall...sob, sob
Where DID the summer go?
I certainly hope yours was a splendid one!
Did you go anywhere exciting?? Did you catch up
on projects in your home, spend more time with the kids,
or decide to get fit in the great weather?
What ever you did I hope it was happy and productive.
However, now it's time to think fall.
Time to start pulling out some sweaters
and boots
Time to drink cider 
and smell the autumn leaves
.
and pick pumpkins
FleaingFrance Brocante Society The tiny treasures of fall
so so long summer
hello fall
There's a whole lot of fun to be had!

Happy May Day!
In France May 1st is also La FĂȘte du Muguet,
The Festival of the Lily of the Valley,
with its tradition of giving a small bouquet
of lily-of-the-valley, for good luck
and happiness and as a
celebration of the end of winter
 




  I hope you have a wonderful May Day! 
Go celebrate spring with some beautiful,
delicate, fragrant flowers

WELCOME SPRING

 
     After a long, cold and snowy winter
how many of you are looking 
forward to warm sunshine,
the emergence of flowers
poking through the ground,
buds on the trees
and the sweet sound of 
birds chirping ???
Aaaah...gotta love Spring
Welcome, welcome!
We have been waiting for you!

HAPPY SUNDAY

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday
What are you doing today?
I am working on spiffing up
the house with some happier 
Spring vignettes...even though
snow's in the forecast for tonight.
Hoping it's the last of it for the year...
Can some warmer weather 
get here soon?? The birds
are ready and waiting
 to start chirping again!

CLIMBING ROSES

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/157414949450344029/
 There's something about roses 
climbing on a house,
 especially one made of brick or stone,
that makes it so much 
more appealing...and certainly
 more romantic!

LET THERE BE {CUTE} LIGHT


Want to learn how to make this cute doily lamp?
It's soooo cute and easy to do!
 Soak your doilies in liquid starch
 
 and drape them over a blown up balloon
resting in a bowl and let dry thoroughly
Make sure to place the center of
 one of the doilies at the top of the balloon
 Once dry, pop the balloon and you will
 be left with your dried shade
 Now you can cut a small hole just
large enough to thread 
your bulb opening through
You can get these inexpensive pendant
lights in black or white at IKEA
That's it...it's that simple!
Now go and soak some doilies
