Yard and Pond

I love living in the country on a pond, and having the abundance of the outdoors with its natural beauty and wildlife.

There are always new things to see and do in this ever-changing landscape.

I believe nature wakes up our soul with its vibrant colors, airy scenery and peaceful environment.

I am inspired by nature and its colors. I like creating by working with natural or rustic materials like wood, glass and even plants.

I also enjoy amateur photography and catching all the fleeting moments in life. It is also a lot of fun!

        I love the adult gift baskets especially! We don’t have any small kids anymore and those would make perfect gifts! I love doing craft projects too and the bunny pot and Mason jar ideas would be so much fun to try! Love those ideas! πŸ˜ƒ
