This Is For The Birds!

I have a few birdhouse themed items coming up or already posted on my ebay .

Just wanted to share a few with you.

First, a decorative birdhouse ... a rose cottage for the birdies.

Also added my clay roses to the roof of this birdhouse.

Next, a wooden bird house tote or caddy. This is a great size.

Could store some magazines in this one, or towels in the guest bath.

Finally, a birdhouse peg shelf. All pretty in pink.

This says rose cottage chic all over it!

Hope you have a wonderful week and

thanks for stopping by!

Pink Clay Roses

From time to time, I offer items adorned with my hand made pink clay roses on my ebay or my etsy. Mostly I am painting, but if time allows, I hand make pink roses petal by petal. I put them on such things as Christmas ornaments, Easter egg ornaments, picture frames, boxes and bird houses. I do take custom orders for items, especially the Christmas ornaments, as they take a bit of time to make.
It's amazing how these little pink roses transform an item into something so pretty and cottage sweet!

Take a look at some items I have embellished with my clay roses...

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Anytime is Tea Time :)

This is a previously sold teapot "TeaTime" 12" by 12" sign I painted.

I will be listing a similar one on ebay in the next week or so.

This is perfect among a collection of tea pots or teacups,

or hanging in the rose cottage kitchen or sunny breakfast nook. I have a customer who ordered a similar sign from me

for her daughter's playroom. It hangs over her daughter's play table and chairs where she has her tea parties with her dolls and bears. I paint and sell similar but smaller wood tepots at Christmas time for hanging on the tree. I also have painted the smaller ornament sized teapots for a sweet customer who gave them as gifts at a garden teaparty she had for her girlfriends. I hand painted roses on one side, then I painted each guests name on the other side. She used them as a tag for seating and placed them on top of each persons place setting. At the end of the party, they had something to bring home to remember the day!

Very Special!

Have a Beautiful day! Y

A Few of My Favorite Things...Part 1

This is one of my very favorite spots in the town that we live.

This is Deer Leap Falls. It is only about a ten minute hike from the road. Downhill on the way in, but UPHILL headed out...whew!

But, it is oh so worth it!

It's so calming to watch the water flowing over the rocks and listen to it splashing into the creek below. The smell of pine fills the air. A true delight for all the senses.

You cannot help but forget about your worries here. A great place to plop down on one of the big rocks that line the creek .

If I'm not in a rush, and don't have a million things on my "to do" list, a walk along the creek is good for the body and spirit.

Many Blessings,
