Whale Watch

These little whale frames are the popular item these last few weeks. I leave a space to personalize them while you wait!
Good for boys and girls.
A tissue box to match.
How about a mug?
The shop is full because I keep painting like a crazy person.
Today will be a butterfly and flower day.
Thanks for looking and see you soon! :)

Summer Soup

Cannelle et Vanille has a great yummy recipe for a cold soup....honeydew, mint and lemon thyme soup!
They have a terrific sight and are gluten free. This would be a good way to use up some of the herbs in our garden of earthly delights....
Keep cool! I'm making this tonight! xo

Summer At The Shop

Here are some special orders that I have been doing for my delightful customers. This one is for a 75th birthday!
Nantucket wildflowers.....
This rock is for a mother mermaid to give to her daughter.

And here is the new sign and lots of white geraniums outside the shop.
I just painted the top of the pots...geraniums need to breath.
All good dogs get a drink.
Inside are a few new things. I have been harvesting my lavender and making lavender wands
They take time, but they last forever!
I haven't posted anything in the etsy shop.....I have been selling everything here! But, more is coming, I promise!....:) Thanks for looking!
