So glad you stopped by....

Hi Bloggerettes!  I'm so glad that you stopped by.  I'd love to show you what I've been up to lately.  I just finished painting this cute little counter top cabinet. It's sort of shabby with a touch of rustic in all the right places. I think it was intended to be a jewelry cabinet, but I it could be used in so many different ways.  It went to the shop today and I hope someone will love it enough to give it a home.
There's always time for ruffles.....so I've been making a few.
 Long, flowy ruffles and burlap....lots and lots of burlap.....
 And a little mannequin to hold my LuLu necklace!!!
 I added some fresh greenery on the kitchen counter....smells so good!
So, whatcha been up to???

I'm coming around to see.


I'm in the mood to link up with Primp Your Stuff Wednesday! and

I love everything you do. I have been working on gifts--not as fun as decorating! Thanks so much for telling about those small angel wings from Pier One. I went and bought 15! I am so happy! You always have the prettiest mirrors--I think we have the same taste in mirrors.

Everything is looking beautiful at your house! I really love all of the white with the natural greens. I'm kinda into that natural look this year. do you kitties leave those pretty angel wings alone? I think mine would probably attack them! :)
