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.

Show off Monday!

A fun new activity over at Etsy Cottage Style Blog!

This is a project that I have been putting off for way too long and I finally did it this summer!
I snapped a picture of a version of these fun pillows at a local craft store below long ago ~I do know that it has been pinned to my bulletin board for at least a year....or more maybe!!

I used snippets of roses fabrics, vintage laces, crochet and tatting. Some hand rolled and ready made ribbon roses make them sooooo sweet.

The pillow above called the "My Party Dress" I used some beautiful vintage laces to form the skirt

This is called "Pretty Ballerina" with ivory tulle, tiny pearls and vintage handmade tatting at the neckline! Both of these pillows are available on my website, you can click on the pics to get there!

I have been spending a bit of time here at your blog and what a lovely place to visit. I had a bit of unwilling vacation away from blogland at least visiting others for a time and what a place to come back to. I have truly enjoyed your blog and all your beautiful projects.
