About Me: I am a wife to an amazing man who drowns me with love and attention and doesn’t mind that our house is cluttered with paint supplies, half done projects and my crazy attempts at building things. Nor does he mind stopping at every nursery and/or garden center I spy.
The fact is I love painting and gardening, plus so much more.
This is where I get to share how to paint tutorials with videos and my garden escapades.
Where I Live: I contentedly live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of N. California. I love the scent of cedar and pine and the mild summers where a cool breeze makes the nights so comfy. Though if I had my say we would get a longer summer so I could grow an even more fabulous garden.
Why I Am Here: ART
I started this blog a couple years ago to promote my website shop. Somewhere along the way I found I enjoyed writing, photographing (still working on that) and helping others learn to decoratively paint even more. I still paint signs and art work for customers but not as much as I did before. Something I am enjoying more than I ever thought I would is videoing my lessons. I continually learn more and more as I make the videos and hope to improve greatly. I have started to include recipes on my blog as my husband and I love to cook together and creating our own dishes is just plain fun. We like simple but delicious recipes and figured others would too.
In the summer it is hard to drag me out of the garden, I garden rebelliously.
I don’t follow typical gardening rules. I garden based on my experience of what works and what doesn’t, and I have found that sometimes the rules are wrong so I share what I do and when, in case anyone else thinks that gardening is a hard and fast skill when truly it is a trial and error endeavor.
Things are always evolving here so I appreciate you joining me on the journey. If ever there is something you would enjoy seeing here that I can provide, please do leave a comment, suggestion or request.
Thank you so much for visiting!
