A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND BLOG GIVE AWAY TOO!

I just opened my new website and wanted to celebrate with a blog give-a-way. To enter, all you have to do is visit my new website at http://someplaceinthyme.com/ come back here and leave me a message. I will announce the winner on Pink Saturday in 2 weeks. The winner will receive these two garment covers and sachets. Covers fit a standard hanger. Thankyou so much for your support and Happy Pink Saturday to everyone.

And now, Happy Pink Saturday and on with the show. Please don't forget to visit the blogs of all the participants this week. Thankyou so much Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for making all this Pinkness possible.


I wanted to feature some of the collection of pillows I have. These are the pink one I have collected thru the past couple of years. Most of them were bought from wonderful sellers on ebay. For their talents, I thank them!

You may have seen this in a previous post when I featured our guest room, but this pillow is just so colorful and lovely.


I know from time to time I say I don't "do" pink, but I think I found a gold mine in my guest room. This must be where I hide all the pinks......I wonder why? Maybe it's my private little escape.

Lots of pink roses, lace and linens on this one of a kind cottage beauty.


A little mini pillow filled with french lavender buds, fits into the small pocket on the top for a bit of freshness. So sweet!

This is one of my very favorites. Lots of vintage chenille was used, ruffles, and gorgeous fabrics.


This fabric is gorgeous and the lace used compliments this pillow perfectly.


A little mini accent pillow that I was lucky enough to acquire.
I know it's hard to see the details, but this pillow has many of them. The vintage hankie on the front has the words mother embroyderd on it. The little charm at the bottom is an angel. So romantic and pretty. I am so happy I found it.

Handmade and given to me as part of an Easter Swap. Now I ask you, how lucky am I??!!

Miss Char: You know I am your biggest fan! I can't tell if I answered this post or not, it is showing up as new now, but I do want to thank you for visiting and taking time to leave your kind comments. So, how does it feel to be a genuine website diva? Hope all is going well. Miss you. We may be going down the tubes (ya' know what I mean) but the baby boomers will pervail! Love your creations and when I am released from resort heaven (well, I couldn't say the other), I will be your biggest customer. Hey, I have a ski chalet in Stowe, and as I go to N'Oleans and mingle with the big peeps, I'm sticking to that story! LOL! Wish you the best, and will be back soon. Your shop is my shop-ping haven.
