Handmade votive with vintage flare...
I have been a buzy bee for Just B -- Home, Art, Life. Creating in a frenzy of fall goodness and thoughts of cider and fresh doughnuts (It's a Michigan thing!). Halloween inspired, fall arrangements, loading in moss, hay and leaves and much more. The air, cool and crisp, even felt right today for all the primping Gail and I did at our little shop. Sale is Sept. 18-20 so come see us.
Here is a peek!

Bitter sweet is the goodbye to my oldest as we dropped him off at William & Mary. He has so much to look forward to, so much to learn and live. I am thrilled for his adventure to have begun.
AND I have a new tenant in my Robin nest. A beautiful turtle dove. I can't wait to see her babies!
So, I am glad to start the fall with much excitement for back-to-school, football games, crunching leaves and my new dove babies hatching.

For me, there is something about being outside, digging in the earth, talking to my plants and birds that makes me feel just great. Peaceful. It is how the colors look in the spring, so crisp and alive. It is the smell of nature bursting.
My etsy site is getting lots of views and I am collecting "hearts" daily. I have had seven sales and have heard back wonderful reviews from all. I will post my first international sale, Rebecca of Canada, photo of my original art in her living room as soon as I get more time. Very exiting.
It also makes me feel a bit vulnerable putting my stuff out there like that. It is exciting and a bit scary all in one. Come take a peek...

I am DONE with showers...
I have added some new pieces to my Etsy account and hope to spread the word. I am amazed at the encouragement from friends and strangers alike. Etsy is a great place to have a shopping adventure. I love the unique finds, the level of service and meeting other artists. I may be managing to spend as much as I make.
This is a new side of art for me to explore. I love the mix of graphic art, original art and inspirational words. The end result of many steps to distress and add patina, is one of warm age like an old piece that has hung around for generations.

I have dabbled in all things art from the very beginning of my time. Mom and Grandmother, both artists, had encouraged me to create. I think it is a genetic bug to "make something from nothing". My favorite motto...sometimes out of necessity and sometimes for fun.After corporate world and babies, I decided to explore my more creative edge. Suits be damned. I started painting in my own home, and for family and friends. Soon I was a full blown Decorative Painter specializing in faux finishes, murals, design consulting and staging. Today I continue my decor business but want to expand my more personal art; original acrylic on canvas, original graphic art on wood and much more. I have much to do but come back and enjoy my world of art!
