About Me

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.

On this thanksgiving...a prayer

“Come Lord Jesus, Be our guest,
And let Thy gifts to us be blessed,
And may our souls by Thee be fed,
Ever on the Living Bread. Amen.”

This meal prayer is considered the "Lutheran prayer". My grandparents said it at every meal, while my parents had a bit different version. A very old prayer that is was brought from Europe and spoke in German, and all of the Scandinavan languages too.

Cottage colors Party ~burgandy~

This month's featured color is

For the November party I am sharing one of my most treasured pieces that was passed down to me. This butter dish belonged to my great grandmother who purchased it about 1905 as I am told. It came with a matching sugar and creamer but those went to a cousin. The pic below does not do it justice, it looks red, but is actually a very deep burgandy color

I also thought I would share a mixed media frame that I created a couple years ago, one of my favorites featuring a little girl in a burgandy dress.
