What a Beautiful Day!!!

Good Morning, Friends! Please enjoy this, my First Peach Rose of the year in my Garden!!

I hope you are all having a marvelous Friday!
I am working on some of those lovely projects that I told you I would be sharing with you!
Love to stay and visit but I have ruffles to sew, wood to sand, and some wonderful chalk paint to help restore a beautiful little gem that I will be sharing with you very soon...
Have a Glorious day and remember to take time to walk through your garden!!
 It's FREE and Oh So worth it!!

A Walk in My Garden

There is beauty everywhere you look these days, you must remember, you do have to look...this is from a simple path though my Mom's garden. 

( And yes, those are my toes)

This is this morning in my garden!! You know, when you watch cooking show, how the cook always says they wish we had smellavision? I'd have to agree this morning.  There is a very light drizzle over my garden,  and this Jasmine permeates the air around.....Oh, how I wish I could bottle this smell!! Nothing will ever smell as good as those whiffs of Heaven that nature brings!

Romantic Double Ruffled Tablecloth

French Country Cottage Inspired Double Ruffled Tablecloth!!   

 Thank you, Courtney!
Believe it or not I made this Lovely Little Tablecloth with 2 white queen sized sheets, I got at The Goodwill. Total cost $6.00 plus some time!!
I also managed to make valance for my bathroom window
and still have fabric leftover!!

Old Sheets are hemmed all the way around...which means 

much less work for you and I!! I have to admit, I've been truly enjoying this, not to mention the other projects it has inspired.

Sharing with these lovely Ladies:

Still Tinkering Around With It All

Having a Blast, figuring this all this out!!
I think I'll have a go at adding a picture!

This was one of the headings I was considering.  What do you think...? It doesn't really scream Shoestring or Elegant to me. I think I'll pass..

Thanks so much for all your support and Inspiration!!

I love tidbits of Inspiration, wherever I can find them... 
Here's one I wanted to share with you today
 "God doesn't remove all of our imperfections, but He makes us beautiful by shining through them"

Many Blessings to you all,
