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

Home Sweet Home!


Doesn't it always feel SO good to get home even if you've had a good time? After a week in a hotel room, my house seems massive! (and clean...thank you Mr. Hubby!)

Although I had a fun time in Tacoma...I really believe that I "belong" in an "art" environment - not to sound snobby (cuz I am SO NOT!), but I feel warm and fuzzy in the "vintage" style art shows that I am normally involved in.... you know the type!!

www.barnbarnbaby.typepad.com

www.thefarmchicks.com

www.bellapink.blogspot.com

www.funkyjunksisters.com

www.maryjanesfarm.com AND MORE..........

Are you feelin' it? I am...... Of course, there was something for everything to say the least in Tacoma....but I prefer the smaller venues (well, farm chicks isn't exactly small..) but, well, - you KNOW, right?

Love the people I met though...wouldn't trade that....and how else would I have found out about www.funkyjunksisters.com ??? I am going to apply for their 2010 show because that is right up my barn road, sista! And then I can sneak down to see Tanner at OSU in Corvallis!

Don't forget about www.bellapink.blogspot.com coming up on November 19, 20 2009!
Then......Thanksgiving weekend brings the art show at beautiful Priest Lake! yeah baby!

As soon as I get Tracie's camera card (she DOES keep her card IN the camera) I will be posting some photos of our booth.

And....I'll be posting some more goodies on my Etsy site...I know I've been wayward in that effort!!

Hi Nana!
The Art show at Priest Lake is at Hill's Resort on Friday after Thanksgiving and also on Saturday.
www.hillsresort.com
I think that is their website.
Everything is handmade and it's wonderful!! We would always go there for the day and enjoy lunch by the fire and take a hike if weather permits. (after the art show, of course :)
Hope to see you!!!
Thanks! xoShari @ Southern Charm
