Sarah's Dresses

My daughter, Erin, introduced me to a wonderful woman named Sarah. She is an artist and sewer and is making very special dresses to take to girls in Tanzania while on a mission trip. What a fabulous and sweet idea! Everything is explained by Sarah in the video below - but you can send a donation towards Sarah's trip and she will sew a tag with your name into one of the dresses. I love this idea and am so honored that she is using some of our fabrics, too! What a neat way to connect with children in another part of the world. Best wishes on a special mission trip, Sarah!

I am so excited about our new Sanctuary collections that have recently hit the market. The paintings that have come to shape these collections were a joy to work on. They embody and embrace the sanctuary I find so often in nature - and I am delighted to now have product that will share this passion with our customers.

So many wonderful products have been created for my designs, by so many wonderful companies. Currently available are our new Sanctuary collections with Studio M of Magnet Works and Creative Co-op. We were thrilled to receive some of the fabulous samples here at the studio. Below are pictures of our new display!! Birdhouses, boxes, canvases, trays, tins, pillows, and more... there is even a sofa!!

Christmas Decor

The Christmas season is here... time for decorations!! I'm happy to say my home and studio were decorated early this year, so we can enjoy the greenery, ribbons, and holiday glows all month long.

Around the studio, Beckie does all of the decorating. My favorite part is the tree that greets everyone as soon as they walk in. Beckie does such a beautiful job each year!



Beckie's son, Eric Ennis, is a talented designer here in Charlotte. Like mother, like son?? Eric does all kinds of home and commercial design, and has been celebrated this year for his fantastic holiday decor. This December his design of a holiday tablescape was featured on the cover of SouthPark Magazine!


We were fortunate to visit my cousin's beautiful home while Eric was decorating for the magazine shoot, and snapped a few more pictures for you to see...





My family was also very blessed this year to have Eric do some decorating on our farm!




I love, love, love this burlap bow!


Thank you, Eric! Your decorations are so beautiful. They will truly bless the gatherings of family and friends we enjoy in our home this Christmas!

Mary's first Birthday - Her Party on the Farm

Her first birthday fell on a Saturday.  Her mother, Megan, planned and prepared the sweetest and most beautiful backyard party on the farm.  She is so talented and crafty and it could not have been a better afternoon of family members all gathered to celebrate the first year of life of our precious granddaughter, Mary Grace. 




 Here I am with Mary and 2 of her great-grandmothers!
Megan asked that I ink a little tree for family and friends to each stamp their finger print onto as a keepsake of her special day and to remember all who attended!  I loved this idea and I personalized her tree by writing special thoughts and scripture into the tiny branches.  After everyone stamped their love onto her tree, I cleaned up any smears so that it will be ready for her room!


Mac and Megan had pictures made to mark Mary's first birthday and every single one was precious.  We are so blessed.  My husband Al always says, "Shame on us if we don't say that we are blessed EVERYday" and this is so true.  We are truly blessed beyond measure!  God, thank you for Mary.
