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.

Cherub plant stand
This re-purpose project has been hanging around since last summer...I picked this heavy lamp base up at a church parking lot sale last June and it didn't take me long to get it cleaned up and painted. But the hold up was how to attach the saucer to the top. I thought a big glob of "Goop" glue would do it. Nope, that was not strong enough. So I had to call on the other half, my sweet hubby to bail me out. Well as things sometimes go, this was a project waaaayyyyy down his list.
So there it sat on the patio all winter. So by the time spring arrived, it needed to be painted again. One day the other half got a wild hair and decided to get this completed for me. I had used a texture paint, but he went over the top with an off white then a shading of pink...hummm. I think he forgot that I wanted to use it for a plant stand....he filled it with water and proudly announced he had finished my "bird bath". Not wanting to make a big deal out of my intended purpose, I will leave it in the garden (where I already have 2 more birdbaths--this makes 3) and maybe in a month move it and put that big plant on it:) Bless his heart for helping me complete it, I am certainly not complaining!
