Difficult year but staying positive...

Things have been a little difficult around Sissie's Shabby Cottage and  for the past six months I've been a full time caregiver to my son.  As many of you know he has Crohn's disease and everything that could possibly go wrong for him, has happened.  After hospitals, and doctor appointments and now home nursing care, he has been through the Mill!  He still has a very long road ahead of him but we will just keeping moving forward  hoping and praying for remission.  In the meantime, I've tried to bring about some normalcy around our household, but I gotta tell ya that it's difficult.  

So for just a little while, I'll lose myself in my blog and share a few lovely and bright spots around here.  With so many hours spent at home caring for him I've been able to pull out the decorations. 

So,  Just thought I'd share something very lovely with you...Jeanne d'Arc Living powdered rose angel wings on a tree in the guest bedroom.

You'll find the angel wings here.
My sister found these adorable child size ice skates for me and this is my front door wreath...
I'm not sure why, but I've gone pom pom crazy this year.  I love making the pom pom garland and this year I made them long enough for the tree.  Easy to make too.  Just buy some bags of pompoms in the size you want and start stringing them on yarn or thread.  I love how they look on our tree.

Moving on from hurricane Matthew and Sale in my Etsy Shop.

I'm so thankful to say that we survived hurricane Matthew.  It's been a rough few weeks and many of our neighbors did not fair as well.  There has been destruction all around us and many lost loved ones and their homes.   We are now picking up the pieces and moving on.  If you have a second please say a little prayer for those that are still feeling the aftermath. 

I'm posting today to let you know about a sale in my Etsy Shop.
Use promo code SAVEMORE and receive $10.  off your order.
 Be sure and check new Jeanne d'Arc styles and the ever popular Angel Wings.  

Come on over and check out what's new!

Everyone have a good weekend and stay safe!!!

My new Shop Space...

Hi Everyone!  I think it's about time I get back here on the old blog and do some updating.  I've been busy moving my shop space into our shop's newly designed "Boutique."  If you have a few minutes to spare I'd love for you to check out my new shop and give me your thoughts.
I have expanded my clothing line to include Jeanne d'Arc and other lovely Boho, Romantic style clothing.

I've also added a few small painted furniture pieces, painted Angel Wings and JDL lace angel wings.  Mirrors, frames and lots of shabby chic stuff.  The "Boutique" also includes Estate and Fine Jewelry.

New Jeanne d'Arc styles also available in my Etsy.

So there you have it...my first attempt at creating a special Boutique space that I hope brings something that my customers will love.  Cross your fingers for me that it will be a success.

Okay, I'm off to see what you've been up too.  Hope you are enjoying the beginning of Fall.

I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Show and Share. Join us over there for some big inspiration.
