Mermaid Paintings

Hello Hello! Here are two more paintings that I added to the shop. They are 11 x 14 . The first is a Mermaid in the garden.

Those are hollyhocks, one of my favorite garden flowers.

The second painting, also 11 x 14, is a seaside Mermaid collecting Nantucket scallops.

I hope you'll come by this weekend if you are in town for the Daffodil Festival. The shop is open on 4 Fair Street....See you soon! :)

Nicole Franzen Photography

I love Nicole Franzen's photography. She is Brooklyn based and recently did a shoot at Saipua, a beautiful flower shop...that also makes soap.

Loving it!
There she is :)
She also did a photo shoot of the woodworker,Josh Dworkis's studio in Greenpoint, also in Brooklyn. My Son lives there. I hope he is looking for a studio like this for me :):)  WOW! Now I have places to see when I visit . Thanks, Nicole!

The Shop Is Getting Packed!

Here are some Spring flowers that I picked for the shop. I had found a fake one million dollar bill somewhere and I put it up on the wall like some people do when they make their first dollar. Ha Ha! I think it's for good luck! The daffodils and grape hyacinths are from my neighbor's garden....she's away for the Winter and won't be back until they pass,  so I will enjoy them. :)  I grew the wee English daisies from seed and Jeffrey grew the calendulas from seed. He had them growing in our cold frame with some lettuce.

This corner is a bit of a mish mash, but I have a nice new hutch that I'm filling with pottery. I'll take more pictures once I get it all looking good. People are slowly coming to the Island to visit and take advantage of the lower rates or they are  opening their houses for the Summer.YAY! More tomorrow! Thanks for looking....:)

Easter Egg Artists

You can see why. Someday I will paint a car, but until then, I'll stick to eggs and other stuff.

These are papier mache boxes as before with that lovely calico print inside.

This is one of my favorites in robin's egg blue....with a bunch of roses on top.
One more...Now I am finished with these!

A simple pattern on the bottom.

And more roses on the top! A beautiful Spring day here in Nantucket....I'm off to the shop!
