About Me

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.

Yum, it's marionberry season

....and I picked up 2 flats of these yummy berries this weekend. Visions of pie, scones and jam for the year ahead! The best part-- fresh over my yogurt and granola for breakfast this morning!

I did a guest blog feature on this berry over at the French Cupboard Vintage Journal blog too!

Just all pink

With most of my roses taking a break right now, the many shades of pink are still going just fine. So I picked a bouquet that was "just pink", so thought I should plop them in a "just pink" vase. I added a few "pinks" (dianthus) and a some soft baby's breath. Nope I am not a floral designer (does it show? LOL) but I do love fresh flowers and wanted to share on this lovely morning!
Roses shown are Abraham Darby, Mary Rose and Glamis Castle

Christmas in July

Wasn't quite sure if I wanted to start creating for Christmas before summer started, but thought what the heck--its mostly pink stuff that I love to sew anyway! So I decided to make an exclusive offering just for the month of JULY. Then I will pull back and not offer Christmas items again until after labor day. So click on the pics below to see what is offered now and get an idea of
styles to come for the holidays!
