I love, new beginnings...

a fresh clean canvas
blank books without lines
thick stacks of plain white paper
my new white bisque designs just out of firing

I see infinite possibilities ...

Here is to...
positive choices
boundless potential
and the pure joy of dwelling in rich possibilities!

Custom Christmas Card

Created for a favorite client.

Licensed as an interior designer I often find my job description changing,

according to the clients needs and desires.

Most of the time I am creating blue prints for construction needs

and scheduling contractors to follow through,

selecting all the materials whether it is the shower hardware

or flooring or fabrics...

I love what I do, as each client is a new adventure and unique challenge.

I had the opportunity to help this client find a new home

and while he was out of town remodel and move all his belongings in,

adding new pieces and even decorating his home for the holidays.

Thrilled with the results upon his return,

he asked to contract my services to assist him in planning a holiday open house.

( not finding anything appropriate )

This is the water color card I created for his party invitation.

He loved it, his friends upon arrival at the party wowed

as they realized it was his home on the front of the card.

The party was a huge success!

I am so blessed & grateful to make a living at what I love doing !

Merry & Bright Tablescape


I began with an old mirror as a base on top the cocktail table
{ the mirror was an alley find }

to reflect the sparkle & lights thru out the room

holiday decorating continues around the cottage...
