Monthly Blog Swap

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the lovely autumn weather, I know I am.  Today, I am excited to be writing my September blog swap post about the lovely blog, Creating Wonderful Spaces which is written by Elaine. You can visit her blog here: Elaine's blog   This blog swap is hosted by Francine of Ethereal Plus What I love and you can visit her here: Francine's Blog

"Hi Elaine, I'm so pleased to meet you".

I popped on over to her blog for a visit and wanted to share with you a bit about her and her family. She is a mother of two, a son in the Navy stationed on Oahu, a daughter who lives near her and a stepson who lives in Florida.  She lives with five rescue animals (anyone who loves animals is a friend of mine :) loves shopping, photography and is also working on a book.  She is also currently working on several DYI projects for her daughter who just recently moved into an apartment.  (What a great mom!!)   Here are a few photo of two of the projects she has just completed.

This is a bench cushion...isn't it gorgeous!  I love the buttons.

She re-worked these pillows that came with a sofa her daughter purchased by removing the front side of the pillow and replacing it with this one...very pretty colors.

She created this pillow for her daughter who is also an animal lover of one cat and a three legged cattle dog.  How cool is that!

I hope you will pop on over and pay her a visit, I'm sure she'd love to hear from you.  I'm waiting to see what other DYI projects she has on her list for her daughters apartment.

    I just visited this wonderful blog. Elaine is very creative with her projects. I am getting into the decorating mood for Fall, and I will pay her a visit every now and then to get some lovely ideas. It's so nice of you to write about her blog. You are a dear bloggy friend.
