Welcome!. I live in Oviedo, Florida with my handsome husband, two great kids and a pair of silly basset hounds. Oviedo is a little town where you can get a Barney’s coffee on one corner and have to wait for the chickens to cross on the next. I love to shop for vintage treasures to use in my home and artwork. Come along with me!
Welcome friends old and new to my blog! Come on in and look around a bit. For this beautiful blog design, I need to thank the very talented Karen Valentine of Valentine Designs. She did such a great job of listening and asking questions. It was so easy to work via phone and email together. The end result is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier. It helps that Karen is a mixed media artist herself. She loves vintage and cottage style and has a great blog that I enjoy following My Desert Cottage I hope you will stop over to see her at either link.
Are you ready to decorate for fall? I am just getting started and will enjoy sharing my home and my art projects with you. I really like to add a bit of homemade and vintage flair to our modern life style. You'll find glimpses of this all over our house, even at my front door. I love this old wooden drawer with a rusty hinge. It helps add some height to the corner.
This rusty old plant hanger usually holds my assortment of fall gourds. For now, it is holding some fun and crafty pumpkins as we wait for the pumpkin patches to open and all the gourds to arrive. It is still in the 90's here in Florida. Fall is a little slow getting started. I'll just keep decorating and making sure my favorite pair of jeans are ready to wear. One morning I know I'm going to wake up to less humidity and cooler temperatures.
Thanks for stopping by! I have some fun homemade fall projects that I've been working on with my friends and daughter. I can't wait to share with you.
