September 2014


To celebrate the launch of my class I am giving away



Foliage & Focal Points 


PLUS a signed copy of my book Fine Foliage to one lucky winner!


The class goes live on Tuesday September 9th so you have until the 8th to enter the free giveaway. Just click on the photo above to be taken to the Craftsy website where you can enter. I will send out a special email on the 9th announcing the winner - watch your inbox because it might be YOU!


The course is hosted by Craftsy - an online educational program that has over 3.5 million subscribers worldwide. Foundation classes were on topics such as quilting and jewelry making but they have broadened their offerings significantly to include some excellent photography, cooking, woodworking, fine arts and gardening classes with more being added each month.

I am one of the gardening trailblazers! You can get a FREE glimpse into the quality of the HD videos by watching this great mini class by my good friend and fellow gardening designer/author Rebecca Sweet.


It's that time of year again! Warm apple cider, pumpkin bread and my fall container workshops. Two dates to choose from; September 20th and 27th.

Spaces are filling FAST so don't dilly-dally - join me in my garden

Many of you said how much you enjoyed watching Andy demonstrate woodturning at our Meet the Artist event last month. Seeing how he transforms an unremarkable piece of firewood into something beautiful and functional always surprises me.

We are excited to now offer you a chance to play in the sawdust too! Andy has designed three woodturning classes for you to choose from and as friends we are offering a special introductory discount for the month of September only. Save the coupon for $50 off ANY one class!!

Oh and here's something fun; Andy is ALSO going to be a Craftsy instructor! He will be teaching an exciting 7 part, 7 project woodturning class which will be filmed in our barn this October.

Ready to try something new?




Shipping costs vary enormously and we have tried hard to offer you  trackable, reliable and prompt service at the most affordable price. 

With the introduction of our Holiday Collectables we realized we could save you money on shipping if we based costs on weight. You can now order as many as 26 of these little beauties for one low price!!! Of course you can mix and match your order and the 'shipping calculator' will do the math for you.

A little early stocking stuffer from us to you.



Are your petunias a little peeky and your coleus collapsed? Don't worry I'll wave my garden wand and help you sort them out in no time. My Personal Container Coach service is lots of fun and you save money - can't get much better than that.


Check out the details then email or call to set up an appointment.
