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

Key to My Heart for Valentine's Day...

It seems as though the uploading has a mind of its own sometimes...the key charms photo was straight....now crooked...think of it as a neck exercise as you peruse my latest charms, ok?
I just l o v e them! A dainty little key on a metal rectangle on which I have stamped "love you", and then sealed with hot wax and polished! Just begging for tiny dangles everywhere and a chain. These can be purchased as is for your own creations ($11.00 each including shipping), or as a completed necklace which I will post later. A labor of L O V E....
The other photo is a completed Vintage Key Necklace that is a "one of kind" creation...I just adore pulling from my nest of goodies to create these beauties (ok, just a stab at self-adoration...). They retail for $38.00 each and you can purchase this one directly from my blog (price includes shipping), OR you can visit Under the Sun in Bonners Ferry, Idaho OR The Shanty in Newport, Wa OR Zany Zebra in Sandpoint, Idaho! Also, Belle Boutique in Boise, Idaho will soon have a bevy of key necklaces of their own. The fun in visiting these darling boutiques is the tactile fulfillment of shopping where you can see a "collection" of one-of-a-kinds and find the exact one that speaks to you! Send your hubby/significant squeeze down to the boutiques for Valentine's day! xxooshari

Hi Shari! I've been blogging since last March! When I got your Christmas card today - of course I had to find your sweet little spot in blog land. I've heard from Gypsy Nurse, too! Come on over and say hello. Pom Pom is my clown name - thus, my blog name. Yes, Jenny is a mama! Can you believe her? She's happy as can be. We LOVE her hubby. All's well! Yahoo! (BIG HUG!) Karen
