Simply Chateau Shirley and mark your calendars for Friday February 21st cause the brocante is comin!

For all of you who know my 
Shirley, you know she gets the sweetest things to hock at her Simply Chateau ebay sight. She has a huge cult like following of people from all over who buy her things. I am  in that cult following as well.  Every once on a while she feels sorry for me and sends me a little petite paquet..........
Mark wraps it up.......
She writes me. Love note.......
And voila... Out comes a treat for me. This is a zinc marker from am apple tree. There are more and I am going in for them. I lost out on menus yesterday. One must have fast fingers on the computer to buy from Shirley  as it a bun fight. I was high bidder and all set up for the final kill and the banging on my door would not stop. I thoughts one of my children has died ..... So I went to the door and it was someone asking me if our house could be in a show called Grimm out scouting for houses. Anyway things turned out grim as I missed the auction.

At least I know there will be another day and another auction will Shirl. Never give up If you want a goodie from Shirl cause you just might get it or things could turn out grim.  Bonne Chance  Mon Amis

Hello world its a new morning!

What do you see when the morning comes?

I see belle notte and arte pura bedding. The gentle shades wake me up with a whisper. 
Beneath the bed skirt is a French 18th century box with the beautiful faded toile. It bids me good morning with its calm presence. 
As my eyes flutter open I look at my collection of Antique French angel wings. 
Stars and sequins sewn and painted on aged by time. 

The pink ones stand alone in all is their glory amongst the stars. 

Then the most important thing I "see" every morning. Gods mercies are new every day. All the above provided by him for me.  

Oh ,and the Brocante is coming to town soon.
