Wreath Addict

Are you addicted to wreaths?

I am.
Always have been, always will be.

I'm a sucker for a beautifully designed wreath-

A wreath on your front door welcomes your guests in a beautiful and friendly way-
It is the first thing that people see when they come to your home- as they knock at your door

Wreaths are fun to make and as the years go on, I am always trying out new looks- 
something a bit different that catches my eye and adds a quirky new look-

Wreaths in a bag or baskets are my favorite these days-













Wreaths with a theme are a fun way to personalize your home-
A sport your family is involved in, a pro team you follow, a beach lover, a hobby you love-






Holiday wreaths are also popular-







 How about a decorated frame?


Celebrate a birthday with a balloon wreath-


A wedding shower welcome-

Whatever wreath you choose to display, make it a great welcome to your home and
one that reflects your family-
A personal welcome that will be remembered-

My Sister's Shop, Belle Maison Market

My sister Ellen is a creative talent-
everything she touches is executed with 
charming flair and perfection- 

so, it gives me real pleasure and immense pride
 to introduce all of you to
her new Etsy shop, 

Belle Maison Market!


Ellen is an architect and art teacher by profession. 
 Her creativity inspires all of us. 
 She is so humble and truly the least boastful person I know.
  She is probably cringing right now if she's reading this!
 (sorry El, but the truth must be told!)


She has helped me in many endeavors-
 I shared her beautiful work on the chalkboard we used at my daughter's wedding.


She created my shop sign for my craft shows-



I love her work, 
the exquisite perfection is mind boggling, especially 
 to a crafter who flies by the seat of her pants!(tee hee)

Her shop has just opened, and I'm giddy with excitement!

Thought I'd share some of her sweet perfection

















So, when you get a chance, stop by and have a look, show her some love.
You too will be amazed at her talent!

Take me to the Beach...

Coastal Decor is one of my favorite things to ogle
the colors
the nautical
the rope
the shells
It's a very soothing look that brings back wonderful memories of beach vacations
with family and friends- A day at the beach- the smells, the sounds, the waves-


Living in the Northeast, surrounded by mountains of snow, the beach is a vague memory and
the frost in the air makes me crave the warmth of the sun..
so I need some beautiful coastal thoughts to dream about-

So, I've found some favorites to help all of us
  dream of those warmer, sun filled, lazy days of summer...

Just looking at these beachy pics makes me calmer and inspired to bring a bit of coastal love to my home.
Stay warm!
