Provence lavender field


My daughter and I visited the lavender fields in Provence
this summer.  We timed our trip perfectly to see 
the fields in bloom and hear the bees buzzing.

We both wanted to paint from the many pictures we took.
Amanda beat me to it!  Her pastel painting is so beautiful.
Available in the shop as a 5" x 7" and 8" x 10" print.

meanwhile:
I'm working on a commission that I just love


I started it three times before I was happy with it.
Still a lot of work to do.

Hope your weekend was lovely!

a little Autumn





I ready for a little Autumn in my home,
but not pumpkins and Halloween.
We are rushed into Halloween the moment September begins.

To me, September is about apples and soft reds and greens and golds.
 

I found these apples in the floral department of Wegmans.
I removed the sticks they were on and nestled them in a 
little basket and on some greens.

The shelf stand has been used for years and is perfect for
my foyer seasonal displays.  
I should post more of these. I change it every month.


I also updated my fall wreath, taking out the bright
orange and yellow flowers.


Joann Fabrics had these pretty branches of rose hips
and clusters of apples and pears.  Perfect for my September!

My Halloween boxes will come out, but not for a few more weeks.
I'm savoring a soft September first.

Amanda's photo is in a magazine!


A while back, Conde Nast contacted my daughter through our shop.  
They wanted to use her Sicily beach photo for an upcoming issue on Italy.

We had to wait until now tell everyone.
I'm so proud of her!
