I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby. After 10 years I quit the day job to pursue my art as a full time passion.

Lynsie's walk in the garden

My little granddaughter Lynsie, recently took a walk out to nana's garden--things are not too colorful yet in my cottage garden, but hey, this is May in western Oregon, and summer doesn't really start until July 4th!

I just followed her with the camera as she explored...

quite a challenge to climb the pile of hens and chicks
to get to the duckies

but the bird bath splashing was even more fun!

a visit with bear bear was interesting... cute ears, but....

he is a bit funny looking, we think grandpa needs to
give him a new coat of paint

all done---Lynsie will be back when the roses bloom~

What precious pictures Debbi - she is quite the little actress with the bear. Too cute. I love the shoes.

What a sweetie. She sure gave that old bear cub a look of disgust didn't she! They are so fun at that age.

You asked if I was in Yakima, the answer is no. I live in a town called Centralia, halfway between Seattle and Portland.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope to visit with you often!

Very cute pictures! She is such a goof! We need to repaint our bird bath... it's looking pretty nasty. I never thought about repainting it... duh!

Debbi, the pictures are absolutely adorable! Lynsie is the sweetest little toddler. She must be such fun!

Lynn said...

I can't believe how much Lindsey has grown, she is adorable, and one of the special joys in life is to watch a child in wonder of everything, it is all so magical for them :)
My garden looks about the same Debbi, we must have the same type of climate.

She is just adorable. I'm a "nana" too. Isn't it just great? I can think of nothing I'd rather do than spend time with my granddaughter's.
