Curtain Call and a Giveaway


I wanted to let you all know that I have stocked my shop with the last of the winter line. 

This will be the final curtain call on the winter line and then all my attention will be on the spring collection.

There are so many new things I am working on and I can't wait to reveal the new line in April.

Until then…if you have had your eye on a camera bag or one of the other purses this will be your last chance to pick one up.

What is in the shop is all that is left.

I have also marked down significantly any vintage items that were original to the French Brocante Collection.

I am also offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders placed this week only      (January 16-23)

Once you place your order I will refund shipping.  Wish there was an easier way to do it on Etsy but there isn't.

On the giveaway front….

 My friend, Christy Tomlinson, has generously offered one of my readers admission to her new online e-course, The She Art Workshop.


How can you not want to take it just by this beautiful piece???

Christy is one of the most creative people I know and you will love this class!


 The She Art Workshop is a 3 week e-course the begins February 28th! In this workshop, you will learn how to create unique and detailed girls, as seen in my art projects! I will also share with you how I create my backgrounds, textures, and layering styles on canvases and other surfaces! You will walk away from this class feeling confident in creating your own personalized" She Art" projects as well as having learned  new art techniques you can use in other mixed media projects!  The She Art Workshop begins February 28th. Registration starts today and ends February 27th! 

I love Christy's art!  

Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win tuition to the workshop.

You can register for the workshop HERE and her inspiring blog is HERE.

The winner will be announced on January 24th.

Thank you, Christy!


I also wanted to give you an update on Joanne….She so desperately needs your prayers.  Things have continued to decline.  I can't imagine what her family is going through.   Her sweet husband has been giving updates HERE.

    Hi Jeanne,
    I would love to enter your giveaway, it’s amazing and very generous.
    I’m off to visit your link RE: Joanne. To be honest, I’m not aware of her story but am going to visit her husband’s link with her information. I truly believe in the power of prayer and our blogging community continues to amaze me with their goodness & power shared with free spirit of giving to one another. I’m off to visit & will light a candle for Joanne tonight.
