Tracie~My Petite Maison

I'm with you, I wonder how the gardener's can chop down plants and flowers so pretty but I'm sure that's what they've been asked to do to keep it "clean". On a happier note, I love your new pillow line and want to be one of the first in line to get one from your beautiful store. I hope you get all your photos completed and don't do what I've been doing... dilly dallying with getting things up ;) The pillow you made your mom is beautiful, what a true gift made with love. Off to wish her a happy belated birthday. Can't wait to see everything in the store, don't work too hard and here's to sunshine.


Gasp. Yum. Thanks...


My dear, you have such a great touch with everything you do! Those pillows are to die for!!! Even the pretty bag you altered is wonderful!

So sorry about the vine. What is it with people who are chop happy??? At the house I used to live in, there was a beautiful lilac bush in the back yard by the fence...and my ex CHOPPED IT DOWN!!! I was stunned and heartbroken! Who would do such a thing? And it was all because he didn't want to mow around it...as if it was that hard. MEN!!!

Anyway, this was such a lovely post. I just love your blog!



LOVE absolutely love the pillows, they are SO pretty!!!!

So nice! Too bad the "weeds" got chopped down, anything with a pretty flower like that around here gets to stay :)

Hi Alice! I came over because I wanted to personally invite you to the blog party I am throwing. I think it will be fabulous, and I want all my fabulously creative blog friends to come! It's called...Where Bloggers Create! It was inspired that by the magazine Where Women Create. I would love for you to show off your workspace! I have admired your blog for some time and think you would make a wonderful addition to the party. Hop over to My Desert Cottage or Valentine Studio and read all about it!



Such beautiful things!! You've been very busy! I especially love the pillow you made your mom with the holy card image - so lovely!

Hi Honey!!

Thanks again for the beautiful bolster pillow, it really looks great on my bed, I keep going back it to look at it from different angles hehehe, and with Angela's presents It really is looking like a magazine FINALLY, I am catching up with my daughter!!! (well maybe hanging on the tailcoats)

Love the pillows, don't worry about the weeds, they grow back, you did see my garden right????? hehehe


OH and P.S. I was completely taken by surprise when 2 of your followers left wonderful comments and birthday wishes for me on my blog, it really was very touching, thanks for sending them over! I was thrilled!

Love your lavender sachets with the laced edge. I can almost smell the fresh lavender from here. A very happy birthday for your mom!

Mmmm... lavender!!
I grow my own and love harvesting and using it in my art work. I tie up bunches of it and hang them around my house to keep bugs out too.

I love your cushions and your mum's birthday gift too. All beautiful!
