****WELCOME FRIENDS****
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.

About Debbi

....Welcome to my world of cottage decor....


Hello friends, I'm Debbi and as a textile and graphic artist, I design and sew with vintage fabrics, crochet, old lace and buttons to create beautiful cottage style finery for you and your home. I enjoy the "thrill of the hunt" so I am always searching out for those vintage pieces of fabric, old buttons, crochet, doilies, old German porcelain, and things I can re-purpose for the vintage cottage style. Some would say I am a bit of a "junker" with vision.

I never cut up pristine linens,
I use linens that have seen better days but still have beautiful embroidery and lace and deserve to be reused. Both my mother and my grandma saved bits of lace, embroidery and crochet from worn out pillowcases and table linens. Most of those pieces are long ago used, so I continue to collect (and hoard) those treasures! The last couple of years I started embellishing journals with bits of lace, gems and pretty papers. 

 My business started as a hobby, working a day job, then I spent many of my evenings and weekends sewing and creating. After almost 10 years of sometimes working 7 days a week, I finally took the leap to make my art my full time passion.


Be assured that my quality is among the very best. I take the time to carefully craft each of my items to the highest standards. I would not sell something that I would not use myself.




My husband Jim and I live in the beautiful small rural town
of Sublimity Oregon. We are located in the foothills of the Cascade mountains in western Oregon. We have grown children and four grandkids Lynsie, Lilian, Kyler and Joe. 
I am an avid cottage gardener and a fan of pass along plants. I especially love fluffy pink peonies and fragrant old garden roses. And of course, a cottage garden is always a work in progress.
