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 am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my 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!

Yummy! I have never seen Marionberries here in California. They look very similar to a blackberry though....are they?

I don't think 99% of this country knows what a Marionberry is ... but let me tell you, until you've had a Marionberry pie, you haven't lived. It is just short of heaven ... this is like the wild black berries that grow in the wild, particularly around old logging camps ... those two are the most exquisite berries ever.

As children we used to go with Mother out to the old logging camps, tredging thru the woods with our picnic lunch & spend the day picking these berries ... to become pies & james.

Oh, yum! for all that hard seating work. TTFN ~Marydon

My mother-in-law just dropped off some berries that look just like your. She just calls them berries but I wondered what they were. They tasted great!

Oh my those look delicious! I'm so envious.

Say, MaidenShade Matters is having a give away and I'm letting people on my "where I wander" blog list know. Please, pass it on!

Thanks, Jennifer

Hi, Debbie, I just found your blog although I have purchased things from you on Etsy. You have a beautiful blog. I just recently started a blog, but I am very much a beginner. Hopefully, I can add some pictures and colors to mine. I love the beautiful tea and toast set that I received from you today. They were just my style.
