Two Southern Owls

I thought you might like to see the new, burlap, owls that I found recently and fell in love with!

When we first moved in our new home we were spending a lot of time in our screened in porch enjoying the peaceful surroundings and sounds of nature. We soon started hearing the mating calls of nearby owls and were enjoying them by day and night. When I came across these adorable owls I knew that I just had to have a "couple" to adorned our porch.

The lichen encrusted branch, found easily, from our yard seemed like the perfect thing to perch them on.

Some closeup details.

This is where they swing in the breeze.

This is where we sit and watch them sway!

These are some tiny ones that I found and perched on swings to sell in my new, shop space :)
 Just, toooo cute!

Gotta get working on a repair to my sewing machine...I've got some new orders for two more crib mobiles from my other Etsy shop. A "Rockstar" and a "French themed Poodle" mobile.

Love, Hugs & Kisses,

See a fabulous DIY here and create your own!

My New Shop Space is Looking Purty!

I can't believe that it's been so long since my last official post...moving really does cause a bit of a set back and I feel so out of the "loop!"
But, we're all set up, now and comfy here in our sweet, little home. My daughter, Shaine, and her twins just left to go back home to N.Y. and my oldest daughter, Tanya, moved down the day after. We had the best of times at the beach and touring around our new "southern digs"....even got to watch them film, again in Southport, an episode from "Under the Dome" on CBS. It looks like a great, new series!

So, the "tours" are done, for a while at least, and I am now focusing on filling up my new, teenie little, shop space with lots of vintage and upscaled goodies at

Now, come on in and take a "little" tour!

A prop door from home and all glammed looks like it's there to stay!

This was my pile of inspirations!

White burlap and white painted, chicken wire were added to create a display showcase.

And a "shabby glam" burlap, swagged bow.

Here are some of my offerings, like this vintage demijohn, with lots of "shabby glam" accents.

A "shabby lining" inside the box with a copy of my "Pocket of Love"
Pretty cottage rose plates.
Mirrors with more glam.
and some with  glitz. 
More vintage, upscaled and adorned treasures to find!
A white, bushel basket and vintage lace.
 Another little creation that I just brought in.

Well, I've got lots more projects in store and then I'll have to find a spot to cram them in or rent another space!
"Miss Minnie"....I'll be waiting!!!

Until then....

Love, Hugs & Kisses,
