Fall table scape with my original oil painting on the wall.
I was born in Napa California and I grew up in central and eastern California. I owned a custom drapery store in California for several years before moving to Reno, Nevada. It was in Reno in 1991 that I learned to oil paint under the direction of Estaban Valle, who has since passed away. I won several awards over the years and have sold several paintings on both the west and east coast. In 2004 after my husband's retirement we visited friends in Alabama and fell in love with it's southern charm. After our visit, we flew back to Reno and sold our home, I guess it was meant to be because it sold in less than sixty days right in the height of the housing boom. We flew back to Mobile and instantly bought a home.
Needless moving to Mobile was a culture shock, but the southern hospitality made up for it. Since moving to Mobile we have met wonderful friends and experience the awe of Mardi Gras and the charm of the Gulf coast.
In this blog it is my hope to share my fashion creations, decorating style, gardening and styling on a dime tips. I look forward to sharing all my designs and special finds with my readers. I hope you enjoy and look forward to your comments.
Treasures found at our local New Mobilian's Annual Yard Sale. Handmade Italian soap, $2.00; Crystal cracker holder $2.00, Brass Teapot, $5.00 and beautiful gold frame $5.00. What a find.
