Karla...I am screaming with excitement!
I can't wait to get the tag & I will definetly wear the charm. Love it...


What a beautiful post! I must peruse it again and again to get all the details.....but for now, I am off to the airport.....


Your posts are jammed packed full every day. I don't know how you do it. But I'm glad you do! Everything looks great!!



I love how the one fairy looks like she is fluffing her hair. Do they see you coming at the grocery store? I figure they should just have you pull up and load the car for you! LOL.

I found the Romantic Country issue at Wal-Mart. I still haven't had a chance to really sit down and savor it yet, though!

Just love the room -- so nice. I don't put a lot of fall colors in since I have pink roses everywhere, but I do like to bring the season in some. I'm loving the white pumpkins out this year. When I first saw them I thought they were painted and looked fakey until I saw from a friend's blog in Germany that there really is a variety of white pumpkins. So I got one! I'd love to find the little ones, too.


I just stumbled on your blog from a friend of a friend... well, you know how that is.. anyhow... I love your things!! we too live in an old farm house that is a true work in progress AND.. I am dearly in love with fairies... when I do my post on my fairy door I'll leave a comment so you'll know...

....Lots and Lots of blog love for your tags and jewelry... I am not so much creative with my hands... happens in my ehad but can't make its way out my fingers... I'm very envious of your work! Lovely things!!

Oh my goodness~ I just stumbled upon your blog! How beautiful. And i love, love, love your fairies. Don't take them down after x-mas.. Every fairie deserves a good home!!!!! And wow, what a chandelier. I love those too!! take care


I've sometimes wondered if it is difficult to create an autumn feel in homes where there is a lot of pink, but you've done it beautifully Karla. Everything looks so nice. It always does here!

Mary Isabella

So many beautiful things. I thik the faries have found a great home. Please visit me at Daisy bouquet.


Fabulous fairies, I'm with you, all year round for those, they aren't particularly over-the-top festive, which is great!

María Elena

I liked your study, I have joined some drawers and I have painted them of he himself color to arm a furniture where to keep my things.


Your work space is really pretty. I even love the little desk you have your etsy things on! As I was reading your blog, my teaching partner called and is going into the hospital to have her baby now!!! Talk about shift of focus!! I love those roses too.. $1.99?!

Heather ~ Pretty Petals

your 'office' looks pretty, pretty to me! But I do love your personalised bookmarks, what a lovely and thoughtful idea. A girl can never have too many flowers or fairies - all year round! Happy Fairy Dust to you - Rachaelxo


As usual very pretty stuff. I am still working on my last thrift store find - a small knick knack cabinet that I spruced up and painted - then I added several layers of gesso to the areas I wanted to stamp on and color with colored pencils...almost finished.

I love fairies too. This past Sunday I saw the most beautiful Christmas tree full of fairies. It was spectacular.
Have you seen the fairies by Katherine Kent? I have a few of those and they are adorable!!!

Dayami Lauzurique

...sorry I meant Jacqueline Kent ;)

Elaine L.

I love the bookmarks you sent with the magazines. How thoughtful of you!

Oh, if only I could find a place that sells flowers for $1.99!


Barbara @ Southern Lady's Vintage

Priscilla is one lucky lady! I love that charm! I was lucky and found the Romantic Country magazine at Books-A-Million. Had to make two trips to get it, but I got it!!! I was so tickled to see all my blogging friends in it!! Loved your spread in the magazine! Barbara

Junie Moon

Wow--your post is so full of wonderful little treasures to discover, both in terms of the writing and your photos. I've enjoyed every little bit of it and I wish your aunt a terrific 100th birthday!


Great flower finds! And I just love your studio!! So creative!


Oh my goodness! You mom-in-law is from HOME! I knew we had to be connected! Which part? We just moved from Syracuse which is between SLC and Ogden. Small world! You are such a wonder, the things you do in your house! Thanks so much for sharing! Now I need to go to TJmaxx, Brittany's room is a fairy room and I think she may need some of those for Christmas!

Jessica (jessrose21)

I love your office and that sweet little blue desk. Great colors and eye candy!


What a wealth of things you've posted to look at. I need to go back and study all the photo's again. AND then I need to go buy some of those fairies. Hope the local TJMaxx has them.



As always your posts are sooo inspiring! Lovin' your studio... :)


The TJ Maxx fairies are pretty. They usually have them around the Holiday season so they are out pretty early this year. I may go today to see if they have any left to add to my collection.


Your office is adorable! What a great place to work. I'd actually like work if my office looked like that!



As usual, great stuff! I love coming here. That attic room looks cool! Show us more when you get more done?



What beautiful bookmarks! I so enjoyed reading your blog and seeing your office area. What a wonderful place to work!

cindy ~ My Romantic Home

Wow, beautiful things! I just love TJ Maxx! Lucky Prescilla...I LOVE that charm!


Karla, only you would paint that car pink. It is so cute. How lucky your grandaughter is to have you! I love every nook and cranny of everything you do. It's great fun and so wonderful to look at.

Amy P

your blog is fantastically entertaining! I'm getting adicted to it :) TFS!


As usual your blogs are very inspiring. You really have a knack for decorating, when you can make fall decorations fit in a pastel setting!

britt-sparkled vintage charm

gorgeous pics as always!!!!
I adore your studio!!! Fabulous chandelier!!!


Your posts are always overflowing with goodness. So much goodness here, but I just have to mention...loving all your faeries! :)

Karen Young

Lovely fairies and great flowers. I alway enjoy the eye candy



"Only" two bookmarks and a rearranged room? That sounds like two days work to me! LOL Of course, I'm easily distracted. I'd have looked through all the magazines I had to move, ate three snacks and two meals, took a nap......

Vicki Chrisman

I dont know how you do it Karla! Your blog is like a magazine on it's own. Amazing ,beautiful things ,that make me smile! Thanks for Sharing your treasures with us!!


I love the fairies. How nice to have them hiding everywhere!

Btw: it was not slow at all for me today:)


Woman, you have more energy than anyone I know! I love visiting your blog and seeing what you have been up to! TONS! Thank you for sharing your ideas and inspiration!

Cottage Contessa

Very cool studio/office! You are one very talented lady. It's a funny thing because I did a post on my desk/office today too, although I don't create wonderful treasures in it like you do!
Amanda(aka Cottage Contessa)



Love your studio/office. The bookmarks are sweet and the fairies are so delightful mixed in with your fall decorating. I did get a copy of Romantic Country Homes and loved your home. I adore that skirt under your kitchen sink and the corner cupboard is so nice with your rose china. The paint job on your bedroom ceiling is amazing!


the feathered nest

I have been looking and looking for that issue. I usually am able to find it at the grocery store first and then the big book stores - weird I think!

There's so much to see in this post - love the fairies, the tags, the desk, your work area and all your bargains!



Beautiful... I really love the fairies :) And I think they could easily be part of the seasonal decor all year round!


I STILL can't find the magazine. Maybe Lowe's will have it. You accomplish so much in one day that it makes me feel so guilty!! I didn't even dress yesterday ~ just wore my jammies, took Tylenol, sipped Sprite, & yakked on the phone a couple of times!!

Morning,Karla! I love the way you use your "finds" in such creative ways. The fairies are unique and stunning! I have heard that Fairies, Unicorns, etc. are very real. They live below us in their world! Cindi :)
