More Handpainted Boxes and a Hooked Rug

Here are a stack of boxes I just finished...The Studio is packed! I keep saying I will put things in my etsy shop, so I guess it's time...I was looking through my camera after I took this picture, and it was pointing at this georgeous hooked rug that I bought years adds some more dynamic colors to the pastel studio....
But still keeps with the rosy theme....check out our new blog at Nantucket Bookworks! xo

Scrumptious and beautiful

I love Tartlette's beautiful photos and recipes....She must have as much fun in the kitchen creating these delights as I do in my studio whipping up some Fairy Dolls....Dosen't this look scrumptious???? A flourless chocolate cake....with all of that fruit! Yum!

I like her packaging...polka dots and home made ice cream sandwiches....

And lucky for us, Tartlette will be doing a piece for design*sponge called In The Kitchen...

Happy snowy,blustery day, East coasters! ( Only a big rain storm here, so far....) xo
