These six dolls are now at Copper Shade Tree Gallery in Round Top, Texas.

Here they are on the mantel inside the gallery.

This is a beautiful gallery, full of gorgeous art by Texas artists.  I'm honored to be included!



This is such a charming area.  Located in Henkel Square, full of unique shops, galleries and cafes.

Copper Shade Tree Gallery now has a second gallery!  This one is called "Fine Home" and has hand carved furniture and other beautiful things for the home.

Spring Wreath

Years ago I made an Easter wreath, which I hang every year.

This year I decided to make a new wreath, something floral.  Michael's was having a 40% off sale on their floral supplies so I bought a grapevine wreath, some hydrangea and rose blossoms and greenery.

I wired the flowers and greenery onto the grapevine wreath

Almost finished....

And here it is finished, hanging on the front door.
A little bit of spring on my front door.

Valentines

My project for Valentine's Day this year:  felted hearts, embroidered and beaded.



Here they are all together

And in a dish

And on a table with other decorations
