About Me

My photo
Sandpoint, Idaho, United States
I've been married to Chet for 26 years...we have two children together and Chet came into our marriage with two children! (all together, we have 2 girls and 2 boys!) 31, 29, 23 and 21 years old. Yikes! I can't believe I am old enough to have kids those ages! I was born in Louisiana where my Grandparents were cotton sharecroppers and I'm very proud of my cajun heritage. The photo above is my mother, Georgiana Smith Linde at 8 years old. She passed away when I was very young, but she carries on in my heart forever... My hubby supports my endless rabbit trails of creativity and he gets extra "points" for that! Thank you for visiting my swirly glittered- up world filled with paint, glass & ribbon...share the love...leave a comment! Email me! I'd love to hear from you! sharifrench@gmail.com

Mini Artistic Canvasas

There is a great gift shop/restaurant in Bonners Ferry, Idaho called "Under The Sun", and the name is quite fitting...
This charming shop has EVERYTHING under the sun...great gifts, gelato (mmmm), handbags, etc,..etc...etc....just plain EYE CANDY! The mom and daughters who own this store are very talented - the window dressing just begs you to come in and browse. And...to top it off - they have an awesome organic restaurant within the boutique. One stop shopping!
They are very gracious and friendly and are kind to showcase my jewelry..these photos show the domino necklaces which are really fun to create, as each one is a virtual mini canvas. No two are alike and that makes them even more precious, dontcha think?
