I'm late again...but I have a Sneak Peek!

Not only am I late posting my Monday blog, but I am also late in showing off the marvelous gift I receive for my birthday. This gorgeous faux birthday cake was made specially for me and it matches my living room! It is a one of a kind, but you too can have an awesome faux cake from my dear friend Francie at The Scented Cottage. She is sure to whip you up a delectable treat for your home. Her eye candy is on her site, including some amazing cakes she just finished this week. Be sure to check it out! for some show and tell. I am in the process of listing some of my most recent finds on my site. Now, so far, none of them are up as I took a break just to post this little peek. But if you keep checking back, you will find the following items and a WHOLE lot more. Oh...and lest you think I have not been busy is just one little peek at a frame that I hand painted which will also be listed this week. So there you have it. I have been very busy behind the scenes and will continue to work hard to bring you some amazing home decor and gifts for your country cottage. Please leave a note and let me know you are out there reading! It is always a pleasure to hear from my readers! And don't forget to hop on over to The Odd Sparrow to enjoy some one of a kind shopping!
