Greetings and salutations my pretties! My name is Kara and I draw inspiration from the everyday joys in life. I love to surround myself with beauty, and believe life is too short to deny ourselves the simple pleasures. Also, I should mention I am quite frugal. Unwilling to sacrifice quality, yet unwilling to pay the high price demanded by many high end retailers and designers has forced me to fight back with savvy ingenuity.
The inspiration for the name of my blog comes from my beautiful pet Starling. Etourneau means Starling in French. That is him on my shoulder; his name is Frankie. His melodic voice keeps me company during the numerous hours spent working on my many projects. We make a great team.
I hope you enjoy your time here while we explore the path to living a charmed and graceful life. Thanks for stopping by!!
