Tea Time Art Print

In the last few years I have developed an obsession love with everything English, I think the term is Anglophile.  I love watching old, black and white Sherlock Holmes movies, reading Agatha Christie books, collecting English china and linens, and of course drinking tea.  It’s not tea time everyday, but most days it is and thanks to You Tube, I’ve learned how to make a proper cup of tea.  So, you can bet that love is going to show up in my art…

Updated Terra Cotta Pot

Hello friends!  I have a new obsession in my gardening life, succulents!  I love their diversity and ease of care.  I use them outside in my garden, in pots on my patio and indoors also.  Today I’m sharing with you how I updated an old terra cotta pot with some chalky finish paint, a stencil and some soft pastel succulents.

Fun Garden Art

Did you know that April is National Gardening Month?  Well it is and after a long Winter, it feels great to get outside and get my hands dirty.  Although the Winters here in Arizona aren’t very harsh at all, people love to garden here and for me it’s not just flowers  that I like to add to my garden.  Adding some whimsical garden art is a wonderful way to bring even more color and fun to your garden.

Awesome Gallery Walls

One of my favorite decorating techniques is creating gallery walls that tell a story.  I have several vignettes around my home that are all different, but each one has a theme and look that are unique. You can easily create them with the artwork and collectibles that you already have also.  I’ve compiled some truly awesome gallery walls to inspire you and I’m also sharing some from my own home.
