Loving Life!

 I consider myself blessed in so many ways....

 I love where I live!

   It may not be ideal for everyone, but it's perfect for us. It's a place that stirs my imagination and helps me to explore the possibilities. It connects me to the land and keeps me grounded.

I love what I do! 
    I really enjoy working with my hands and creating the things that come into my mind. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't... nevertheless, I am always so surprised and flattered when something I've made actually sells.

Voila'! Patisserie Francaise!
This is the most recent picture in my head- and this is how it started: I love velvet...I'm crazy about pincushions, and old lace, ribbon trims, vintage jewelry, glitter, lavender, and Paris! Wonder what would happen if I put them all together?


French Pastry, but with no calories and fat free!  (can you tell I've been dieting, lol?)

A variety of these goodies will be going to the Junk Salvation Portland Show in Feb.

I love who I love, and who loves me!

 I am so fortunate to be married to the love of my life; a man who truly 'gets it' and supports me in every aspect of our lives together. We are a perfect team. It has not always been this way...nooooo; but over the years we have found our way and have arrived at the place we were meant to be. Rock solid in our faith, our love, and our shared dreams!

So... as I look back over this past year, I find, once again, that I have been truly blessed. That does not mean we've had no problems or difficulties this year, it just means it's all about the perspective we choose...
It's a 'glass half full' or 'glass half empty' kind of thing! 
Which are you choosing for the coming  year?
