~The Magic Behind the Artwork~
As the years went by our youngest daughter Nicosha got involved in 4H, raising and showing animals and since we lived in a small town we weren't able to have them there. We felt a place in the country would be best and we left this beautiful place that I so loved. If we could have moved the house to the place with the 11 acres that we have now...we would have done it in a heart beat! But that wasn't the case and so we left only bringing with us those beautiful memories of a beautiful home, outdoor evenings and days spent working in the gardens.

So off we went to our next journey that included land, a barn and lots of animals in that barn!
Now we have a beautiful view of the 8 acres of woods in the back and I am trying each year to add on more gardens and hubby has promised me the pond and waterfall would be finished this summer ( even though it has been 3 years!)
We have been very busy getting things going around here but I always remember to take the time and enjoy those beautiful bits of inspiration the garden holds. When I paint I sit out on the back deck and am thankful for the beautiful surroundings I now find myself in and enjoy the birds that sing and the flowers that bloom around me . These are the things that help create the" magic" within out hearts and offer the ability to be able to apply that to our artwork.
I also enjoy finding fun" JUNK" and giving it a pretty home in the garden! Inspirational messages in the
garden are also a wonderful addition!

|This was a" true junk" find as this old room coal heater from the 40's was on the side of the road and I put the bird cage on top of and filled it with plants and headed it towards the garden!|
