French Inspiration ....

Have you worked on a French inspired project recently?
Have you been inspired by something French you've seen lately?
Have you cooked up a delicious French meal?

If so ... please join our "Voila!" party over at the French Cupboard site and share with all of us !!

I would LOVE to see what ooh-la-la you've been hiding up your sleeve.

 Here's what popped out of my sleeve last night.
French inspired hearts ... a simple but festive addition to my kitchen hutch.

Don't be shy come on over and share the LOVE.

Winter Whites .....

It's a wrap for the Philly home show ... I've been recuperating from moving furniture by SITTING at my sewing machine.

Pure bliss! ... 

and what great satisfaction I have from completing the first in my "Winter Whites" gypsy bag collection.

It's been a while since I joined "the party" ...
I'm looking forward to visiting with you at Kathleen's place ; )
See you there?

Have you been looking for something?

Have you stopped by on the first of each month looking for something here on my blog?
Only to not find what your searching for?
What the heck am I talking about?

I'm talking about Porch of the Month !!

Well, if you've missed the monthly feature, I do apologize ... however you won't have to wait much longer for it's return. Porch of the Month will sprout back up on the first of February.
Fresh new inspiration will be coming your way with a FANTASTIC romantic porch slated for next month!
In the mean time, sit back, curl up and head on over to Debra's porch for a little mid-winter porch makeover.
There is a lot more to see!!

All of the photos above are courtesy of Debra and they are just a little tease to get you in the mood {so to speak} for next month ; )

Thank you Debra!

I couldn't think of a better way to begin a new year ... by enriching  {maybe even discovering} your creative mind and soul with 
an art class {or two} !!

Here are my two of my favorite artists that will be teaching this month, Jeanne Oliver and Jennifer Rizzo. I've had the pleasure of getting to know both of these extremely talented {and really nice}  artists over the past year ... lucky for us they will be sharing their in-depth knowledge and creative skills!

First up is Jeanne Oliver's Creatively Made on-line class.
No excuses for not making it to class {actually it's classes - plural} ... you can do this one in the comfort of your own home at your own speed! 
Only one catch ... TODAY, JANUARY 9th is the LAST day to register.
Skip right on over to registration, here , to save your seat and learn all about Jeanne's classes!

and next, check this out ...

Yeah, I know ... how much fun is this? Hanging out with Jen and making jewelry! Sounds like a perfect girls night out to me ... and you'll learn a new skill or build upon one you have ... plus, you'll bring home a custom piece of jewelry created by you! Okay, once again you need to register NOW ... seating is limited {only 15!!} ... hurry ... to register send Jen an e-mail at:

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you a year full of learning and enjoying your creative pursuits ; )
