Well I know spring is sprung here in my neck of the woods, I have been in the mood to clean out and get rid of clutter in my studio and around the house, then did a little bit of painting to freshen up my hallway, I still need to finish that project. Thinking of garden plans, and which plants to try this year, last year I planted 4 different kinds of lettuce and the were fantastic, all summer I had great salads and I loved to just slip out the back door and take a few leaves from the plants, grab a few tomatoes, snap peas and voila...garnishes or salad....just a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and white vinegar and salt and pepper. The lettuce plants did very well and lasted most of the summer.
I have added a few new pieces to the shop, this is one of my papercuttings that I have made into a pretty collage piece, in using 18th Century designs for the Paper Hand and Woven Paper Heart, aged with sepia and beeswax the Heart and Hand symbol was used in 18th century love tokens samplers and other paper made folk arts. I have added some antique lace to the hand and the Nature Journal papers washed in pretty sepia watercolor, this piece is sealed with a beeswax finish. The nature journal pages are print copies from my favorite book The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady. Happy Spring Days to you!
