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

Happy Thanksgiving from Southern Charm!

I know, I know...I've been a very bad blogger...but really - since I took my facebook 101 class (you can stop chuckling now...) I'm kinda addicted to facebook! I can load photos of my goods right from my phone..and I'm SO not a techy kinda gal!
It is wild and woolly out today...the kind of day where the snow blows sideways and your covered deck means nothing.  I worked out, then shoveled, then shoveled some more...wierd thing is - I like living here in the Northwest where it snows - sometimes alot -!
Hawaii is great too, don't get me wrong. Love it, love it. But, I love watching the snow fall (even if it IS sideways). Our kids all know how to ski and snowboard - a life sport. Can't beat that. I love the seasons.
In this week of Thanksgiving, I'm so very grateful that I have a warm home to come to, that my children are safe and happy, that my husband is a (very) good guy and we have wonderful family and friends.
I'm grateful that I have my faith in a high power, and that we've raised our children in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Yep, I'm grateful. 
Happy Thanksgiving.
Love, me
