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

San Diego,...continued...

Having a great time in San Diego....these are photos of flowers (had to borrow a camera..forgot mine) from the Carlsbad Flower Farm...I used to go here as a teenager when it was just fields and fields of gorgeous color and we would roam around before we hit the beach. Now, it's a huge attraction with tractor rides and $$ to even get in the gates, etc...etc...although not my idea of progress...- Marilyn and I had a great time together jonesing after all the beautiful roses and ranniculus (sp)...and yes-we took the vintage tractor ride..which was actually quite fun.(that's Marilyn and i in the photo above) Then on to Kathy & Rick's in Carlsbad for dinner with the family...we laughed until my cheeks hurt! (and beyond!)
Yesterday was beach time with my wonderful artsy friend, Cheri and checking out her location in Del Mar for a Christian Art Retreat...beautiful setting...I'll have to keep you posted on that...we had lunch at Jake's on the beach...great fun...the weather is great..
Tommorrow is stand up paddle boarding with Dede...oh dear...not sure about photos of that one!!!!
