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.

Pink Saturday~YIPPEE

As with most of us, the weeks just seem to fly by. When it comes to post for Pink Saturday, many times I am left looking around wondering what to share with my blogger buddies.
I have been very busy with creating fall items for my shops on etsy and my website, but they are all in the fall colors. So, because I have moved on into the Christmas holidays, I have two of my new items for this week.
I know that this may not be the pink everyone is after, but for now, this will have to do. I promise to be a better pinkie in the future.
I created this sweet tassel that can hung from the tree or anywhere else you might enjoy a little holiday bling. I love the candy shop and also added a gingerbread man at the bow. Believe me, there is some pink in there. HA!
What could be tastier than a snowman cupcake??!! If this was indeed edible I bet he or she would taste sweet and delicious. I bought the cupcake ribbon to use for something for my grand daughter, but thought it may be perfect for this tassel. I do hope you have enjoyed my offering this week, even tho I know none of us is ready for Christmas yet. We are still having temps in the 105' s and above, so think how I feel!! :)
Thank you ever so much Beverly for once again treating us to a day of visiting and seeing what others have been up to. If you would like to see who is participating this week, please go to Beverly's blog at How Sweet The Sound for the list.

A Cottage Halloween?

Fall is not in the air here in the desert. We are still having daily temps in the triple digits. Altho we may be seeing 109 degrees during the day, it is cooling off at night.
With that being the case, it's easy to understand how hard it would be to get into the "autumn" mood for decorating. You really have to push yourself to make it all happen, unpack the boxes and to get motivated. Unless you go to the mountains, which is very do able (you can reach an elevation of over 6000 feet in less than 2 hours) you have to make yourself realize that fall is indeed on it's way.
I love the rich colors and all the hues of this most favorite season. I wait for months for it's beginning.
This is one of the shortest seasons, if not the shortest. It gets pushed out every year by Christmas, so lets all enjoy it, take in the cooler air, admire the changing colors, the leaves falling, fires in the fireplace and best of all, beautiful aromas coming from the oven.
As you probably know by now, I am not a cottage white person. I love color, but so many of my customers enjoy white. Hence, then faux, white, sugar cookie pumpkins. Very shabby and adorable too.
You won't gain weight with these, you won't rot you teeth either. No sugar, no fat and no calories. Just lots and lots of cottage goodness.
These can be found at Someplace In Thyme.com just in time for your cottage white decorating.

Marty's Fall Cloche Party AND Pink Saturday

Fall is in the air and altho I don't yet have all my fall decorations up, I did want to participate in Marty's Fall Cloche Party. To see all the lovely items Marty has in her home, along with many other beautiful offerings, you can visit Marty at.http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/

I have this beautiful cloche sitting on my dining room table with a sweet mini pumpkin. I always make these pumpkins every year to use at every one's place setting. It's a sweet remembrance of a lovely holiday together.
The fabric for these pretty pumpkins can be any fall fabric you would choose to go with your table decor. The decorations at the top are so fun to use. I love to use a dried cinnamon stick for the stem.

This cute wire cloche is one of my favorites. I just love the hearts around the center. I placed a little scarecrow and pumpkin display inside.
A close up of a holiday that is on it's way!!
Pumpkins and crows just seem to go together, don't they? Another wire cloche, but this one has a little bird on top.....love it!!
See, isn't he just the cutest thing you have ever seen?
When I bought this cloche, I had every intention of painting it white. What was I thinking??? So glad I left it alone.
Thank you so much Marty for yet again giving all of us the opportunity to visit each other and share our passion for cloche's. I am very grateful and can't wait to visit all the other participants.

Pink Saturday

As you know, plants in the desert are fried after a long, hot summer, but I did manage to come across these lovely oleander bushes and they are perfect for Beverly's Pink Saturday.

Both dark and lite pink varieties in this yard.
This plant brings lots of color this time of year and doesn't require a lot of water, which is a good thing if you don't get a lot of rain.
Oooooh Pretty!!!
Just in case you are wondering what I have been up to this week, here she is. A frenchie tassel for a customer of mine. Ya just gotta love pink!!!
Happy Pink Saturday everyone and THANK YOU Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for all your hard work each week. We wouldn't be here today if not for you.

The theme this week for Shabbylaneshops Tuesday's Treasures is "Warm Country Kitchen." I have decided on this lovely set of towels for my offering today.
A beautiful set of towels using crochet work at the bottom and vintage cutwork on the top. What could be better than cherries? You can see these at Someplace in Thyme.

September 11 and Pink Saturday

This is a day of somber, a day to remember all that we lost. I am forgoing my regular pink post to honor those that lost their lives today. America is a country we should all be proud of.  God Bless America and all her fallen hero's.
I designed this creamy white tassel for a client and thought how appropriate to show and share an angel.
This day nine years ago, many angels went to God. I hope that each of us takes a minute to think about the sacrifice that was made and is made each day by those serving to keep us safe.
Thank you Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for taking the time to bring us together each week. I look forward to posting my pink next week and I would love to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Pink Saturday!!

I have never met anyone that didn't love a sugar cookie nor Halloween. What can be better than bringing the two together??
This just keeps getting better and better, because these are faux. Yep, you heard right, fake. Made of wood, painted and decorated, these are just so cute. Better yet, they are pink!!
I am gone this weekend to visit my brother and his family in CA. I will visit you when I return on Monday. Until then, I wish each and everyone a wonderful Happy Labor Day and the most fabulous Pink Saturday.
Thankyou so much Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for working so hard each week to bring us all together.
