About Me

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

Boise Town

I'm back from visiting my sweet daughter Kelsey in Boise...we had a great, albeit quick! time together! Isn't it a m a z i n g when you see your children grow into confident young adults with lives of their own? Yet...it brings you back to a 3 year old when you hug them and they melt into your arms? love that....
Kels and I spent a late evening with Johnny Depp in Alice in Wonderland 3-D. oh my. trippy and wonderful movie....The Cheshire Cat was SO 3-d, it hurt my eyes! Fun.
I also had the pleasure of visiting one of "my" stores - Belle Boutique - in downtown Boise. What a darling shop!! Kelly is the owner and she was delightful...darling clothing and jewelry (but of course) with a flair for cool, edgy decor. And...her prices were great! And...lots of beautiful special occasion dresses upstairs too! And...and...and - I'm thinking that if you are in Boise Town, you should stop in - easy to find - right downtown on the corner..and the gorgeous Capitol building is completely restored and now open to the public again(down the street).
