Good Fortune and Love

Here we are entering another decade ! How exciting to look forward to the possibilities !!

I am getting ready to make the move to my new studio. A small house next door to me that became available. It's so exciting as now I can feel more organized, and spread my wings a bit more.

While thinking and dreaming of how I will decorate my new made me think of a former life of mine when I lived on the California coast and owned a shop called " A Queen's Legacy". We polished and painted that old Victorian and loved all things to do with Victoriana and Queen Victoria. Gleaning over "Victoria Magazine" we created a wonderland !! People came from all over the world to shop and have tea in my Victorian tearoom overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Artists came to paint it and we appeared in several Wine Country Magazines.

While I lived there I was able to move into town and had the most wonderful little house. I leashed my little dog, Muffin Man and we would walk into work every morning, enjoying the clean foggy air and the smells from the local bakeries.
( Muffin Man became a sort of celebrity in his own right and my customers called him "Muffin Puppy Muffins" and made trips to the shop just to visit him.)

I found the painting above one day while searching on line for my old home. There was my house, painted from the perspective of the gardens across the street. I got a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes thinking about how I loved that house and my life at that time.
Then......I thought....its not so much the house but the lifestyle I had created for myself and I can take that anywhere I go !!'s a toast to my new little studio....a new step in life to keep creating the things I love and making new friends all over the world.

Thank you so much girls...I have a studio and "real world space" now, but have outgrown it, to say the least. Jennifer, I wish I had you here to put that wonderful energy to work with me. I am going to need it.

Wow, it's been much too long since I've been by! How do you do it all? First, congrats on the Frippery signage, it looks incredible!
I know how you feel about your old place, I get nostalgic for mine too sometimes, and Miss Daisy who was with me during that stage.
All we know is that change is coming and from the looks of what's coming your way, one thing we know is that it will be filled with beauty and love! Congratulations!
