More Inspiration...

My family and I spent the day at the Botanical Gardens, one of my favorite places ever! I could visit there every day and always find something new. These first four photos are in the "Japanese Garden". It's so peaceful there. The sun decided to hide and we even had a few sprinkles here and there but I didn't mind, it was still gorgeous!

Have you ever seen mums cascading over a wall like this?

I took this photo simply because I love pillars!

What a great idea. Peppers for some fall color!

My Grandmother's Talent Is So Inspiring

I glanced up over my bed every night when I was a little girl and read this prayer that my grandma stitched o so many years ago. Isn't it lovely? So vintage. I wanted to create a painted design that reminded me of this happy, sleepy image. One that would be both modern and nostalgic at the same time.

This new design is destined to be a part of a child's happy memory.

Fall Birthday Party!

Fall birthday parties are so much fun! It's so exciting to see lots of little pumpkins start out all orange and quiet, just minding their own business. And after a flurry of excitement involving buttons, google eyes, sequins and feathers, they're given new life and transformed into happy little faces all in a row. Whew!

Happy Fall!
