  • New on Etsy!


    Right now I’m also stocking up my Etsy shop as much as I can for the upcoming holiday season. Yep, you read that right. It’s basically Christmas in July around here. I have SO many orders that come in for my Christmas music angels, wreaths and other ornaments and art and crafts for the home starting heavily in October, that this year, I decided to be a lot smarter (so I can enjoy the season too) and get these items ready to go before the shopping season is upon us.

    See our new items added to the shop below!

    Or you can visit our entire shop below –

     

    Let me know if you have any questions – I love custom orders too!

    Summer Home Tour


    It’s time for a summer tour and I’m joining some of my blogging friends on a home tour today so have some fun clicking around and enjoy seeing different styles and beautiful homes freshened up for summertime.

    In case you’re new here or missed my Spring Home Tour, I’m sharing a few of those pictures with you today too… Also, I usually just do a few small things to update or change our home with the seasons (with the exception of major holidays of course), because quite honestly I love our home and its design … and I don’t have time or storage to overhaul the whole thing every few months either.

    I did add a few new watercolors I just finished and decided to add to our home decor for a fresh summer feel! I’m selling these as prints in my Etsy store in just a few days, but I decided to keep the originals.

    I’m obsessed with daffodils and they’re one of my new favorite things to paint!

    And this is a more “traditional” watercolor in the muted tones, but with an abstract finish. I’m really enjoying this in our kitchen!

    And now to the rest of our home…

    You may have already figured out, I’m not a neutral kind of girl. We’re a very colorful family in more ways than one, so I guess it’s fitting that we also love color on our walls and in our interiors. Plus I’m an artist.

    I enjoy creating things for my home and to sell and share with others. From oils, acrylics and watercolors to wall art made from all sorts of papers, to handmade cards. You name it, I pretty much love to make it! Except for building stuff… can’t stand that and I’ll leave that to my talented husband.  The reason why I share this with you is that we incorporate a LOT of our handmade items into our home.

    In other words, our home is not a xerox copy of a magazine. It’s us through and through. My hope is to inspire you to follow your own taste and love for furniture, accessories and family keepsakes, old and new!
