About Me

Sublimity, OR, United States
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.

Welcome Spring!

Couldn't you just fall into this lovely setting!
My second fave time of the year (summer being the most fave), and spring is stepping into style here in Oregon with a warm sunny 70 degree day! I am taking my camera out and soaking up the glorious senses it brings to my soul.

five guilty pleasures...

 I was actually asked this question lately "What are your five guilty pleasures?"....and what comes to mind first is chocolate!!
But I really tried to think outside the box of  on this subject, here is what I came up with things that I may feel guilty about later--but maybe not too guilty LOL

1. Doing absolutely nothing but laying on a beach in the tropics
2. Buying myself a new expensive purse that I don't need
3. Finding a fab buy at a garage or estate sale that I know is worth way more than I paid
4. Treating myself to girls only vacation, and spending lots of money on it too
5. Eating creamy Chocolate truffles and way too many of them

So what are your Guilty Pleasures??? Grab the image, leave me a comment, and post on your blog too!
