It must be so beautiful to wake up to these vignettes that so adorn your home. Please tell me what a "toastie" is? Thank you :)

Hi Chrissy! I love the new look! Now that we are enjoying warm weather, why not a star fish? Lovely. I really like the way you arrange things; have you ever thought about being a professional photographer? Or are you?! Hey, are you familiar with the book Altered Art Circus by Lisa Kettl? There is something in there I am going to try, and you might like it: a captured fairy in a jar!!!! Let me know if you know about that. It would work in an apothacary job just nicely. Have agreat day! Anita

Absolutley beautiful as usual! Your vignettes are always a delight. Have to ask. What's a toastie? I'm assuming that it might be a toast holder???

Hey Girlfriend...

Wanted to stop by to say thank you for leaving me such a sweet compliment on my angel in jar vignette! That means so much to me, coming from you...the "Queen of Vignettes"!!!

Girl, I see that you've been busy again...I just love this pretty tray vignette!!! But I must ask what an Irish toastie is? I really do love this "Lost in Time" vignette...my title for it, Sweetie! Hehe!!!

Oooh...and I love what you did in your kitchen...bringing some of that pretty ocean home with you!!! Love your new shelf pretties in the kitchen!!! I bet you think of your day at the beach everytime you see it!!! Sounds like you and your honey had a wonderful time!!! So sweet!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Hi Chrissy,

PERFECT! I'm telling you, you must do an E-book (or some kind of book).
I would buy it and I know others would also. You have a beautiful way of styling.

hugs,
Barb
