Fall Temptations at Pottery Barn!

Oh Pottery Barn, why do you tempt me so??????? 
I was just going to stop in and just "look."  Not buy, just "look!"

That is until I saw this feather pillow.....
I had visions of you sitting on my living room sofa...
Mingling with the other pillows and snuggling next to my fall pumpkins!
 As always, you did not disappoint.

And then there was this sign that said, "20% off all baskets!"
All this pretty basket wanted was some flowers and center stage on my entry table.  Yeah baby, I'm happy to oblige!
Please tell me that I'm not the only one out there that has a thing for cute topiaries....couldn't resist the one next to the basket found at Tuesday Mornings.

Pottery Barn has some amazing Fall and Halloween d├ęcor but luckily I was able to pass it up.  I did see some pretty feathers but at 49.99 for a few feathers....I draw the line!

Okay, that's it for me.  Remember to get out there this week and create, make, sew, write, photograph, decorate, repurpose, craft and find something wonderful to share with all of us!


By the way Pottery Barn did not pay me to plug their store. (darn!)

Old Bed Springs, Burlap and Chalkboard Paint

What sup chicks!!!

 I've been creating a few things and thought I'd share. ( This is an older post)

What to do with a crate load of old bed springs....why make flower vases of course....
What do you do with an over abundance of burlap fabric scraps and doilies.....why make burlap flowers of course!

What to do with an old cabinet door and some chalk paint...why make a chalkboard of course.....
What to do with a sleepy cute kitty....why take a gazillion pictures of her of course!

That's it for now.  Remember to get out this week and create, make, sew, write, photograph, repurpose, cook, bake and find something wonderful and show it to us.....

A passion for vintage dresses...

One of my biggest passions is finding pretty vintage prom dresses and lingerie.   For some reason I just can't resist them.  Oh well it's a good thing that I have a booth. This pretty pink ruffled gown was won on ebay.

I've expanded my booth at Calabash Marketplace to allow room for vintage dresses and accessories and this Southern Belle will take center stage....well, at least for awhile...

  I can just imagine a Southern Belle wearing this  to the debutante ball.  Don't y'all just love her!
Well that's it for now so remember to get out there and create, sew, paint, photograph, write or do whatever makes you happy.
Also don't forget to share your creations with all of us!
I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Show and Share!
