Sharing Some Special News

Hi Everyone~

I just received some exciting news~I have just been published in the August issue of the French magazine, Esprit Scrapbooking. So, there is cause for celebration this weekend!


As you know, I simply love creating. And what better place to do it than in our homes? I adore cloches and exquisite table settings. This gorgeous “tea party” was created by my talented friend Celeste from Celestina Marie Designs. But, that’s not all. I have featured Celeste in my Whimsical Musings Magazine and I hope you’ll take a look at all of her amazing creations over there.


My friend Dee at A Lapin Life has made an art form out of decorating cloches. She is featured this week on my Whimsical Musings Magazine. Be prepared for a treat as you get ideas for how to decorate cloches for your own home--This enchanting woman is brimming with ideas. You'll feel like you've been to "Cloche Heaven!"

Here is my French Farmhouse Cloche from my Etsy shop...Just imagine what you could put inside...

The possibilities are endless!!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Cindy,
SO thrilled for you to be featured in such a wonderful magazine. You are so talented and so deserving.

Oh you are so kind to use this french inspired toile table setting. I wish we were sitting there right now celebrating your published feature.

Love the cloches and Dee's creations. Yours in etsy is awesome. I had one just like it and it sold several years ago.

Have fun creating and Congrats again.
XOXO Celestina Marie

Congrats, Cindy!! You're just racking up those features - and rightly so!

I'm really starting to like cloches now after seeing so many of them lately. Love the ones you're highlighting. I wish I had my g'ma's cloches. Not sure whatever happened to them. :(

Congratulations sweet friend. I told you a LONG time ago, that one day I would be saying I knew her when, and look at you go girl. Your mind is just so rolling.

Oh my goodness what a beautiful tea set and I am SO there. No sugar in mine please, and yes I would love one of those little cakes. Oh Celeste has really outdone herself this time. How elegant and I love the black. It is beautiful.

I love the creation by Dee in her cloche. How fun are those cone flowers and the butterfly is the element of surprise. Love it.

Thank you for another beautiful share sweet friend. I think of you daily when I write in my journal. I hope you and Ralph are doing well. We will talk soon. Have a glorious weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
