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.

What's cookin in the cottage kitchen blog party January

Fun new blog party! I have lots of old advertising images, I thought I would share this one today that is from the mid-1950's. It was in Life magazine. Brings back some old memories.....

thank goodness lemonade stands are one thing kids do today just like we did. My grand-daughter did one during her parent's yard sale and made as much money as they did. She's saving for something special. Happy New Year Debbi. I read about your New Year's get-away. How wonderful!

Debbi - let me tell you - I have all those flowers blooming where I live in Florida.

However, I long for the snow and cold! You must remember how blessed you are to have seasons! While warm weather year round may sound heavenly - it is utterly boring. I'm a native Floridian and would love to live ANYWHERE north.
