Hello!
I hope you are all enjoying your week....
I recently took a trip to France.
I have so many pictures to go through.
I brought back as many wonderful treasures as I could for the shop.
I have been posting a few pictures to facebook that I took with my cell phone.
It seems to be the easiest way for me to share pictures these days.
The above image I snapped with my cell phone of the view from my hotel room in 
Villeneuve les Avignon.  
I was attending a market with my friend, Terry Littman of Antiques from France.
Terry hosts tours of France every year.....
I will tell you more about Terry and share more about my trip in my next post...


Today I have a special guest post from the beautiful and talented Anne Marie of Nada Farm.
Anne Marie is here to tell you about a fun Holiday e-course
that is she is apart of.... 

challenges surround us daily...from what to make for dinner to getting the laundry done...and if we stop and slow down for just even one whole minute and listen to what surrounds us we notice so very much...
at this time of the year...in the autumn...as the leaves are changing and our lives become even busier with activities and the holidays approaching...it is easy to succumb to the busyness and hectic schedule and then before you know it, the holidays are past and all you did was bake some cookies and decorate the tree, when what you really wanted to do was so much more...
I know
My husband and I just had our seventh baby...but I am not running around or frantic the holidays are approaching bw5our newest addition to our "Na-Da Farm Family".....baby Gemma Grace
{what if you did it different this year }
what if you made it special.......unique.........yours
CMH2 Home Collage Words
 
Making your home uniquely yours...is why I was so happy to participate in Jeanne Oliver's new e-course....
Creatively Made Home for the Holidays!
it not only inspires, but it is like a terrific magazine that has come to life!
You get to know the women (including myself) and watch videos on creating a 'Creatively Made Home' ... for the holidays!

I hope you all can join us for this e-course... xo + inspirational blessings, Anne Marie Klaske of Na-Da Farm Life
