Welcome to the Garden Palace

Come on in the Backdoor to the Morning Glory Garden Room.


I finished this repurposed cabinet door shelf unit about three months ago.
And I was determined not to show until I had it installed which was something I could not do without help.
Dear sweet son came to the rescue yesterday.
Oh my, it was hotter than heck but we managed to get this on the wall, as well as, a couple of other projects. 

I'm not sure how successful I was but I was trying to echo some of the mosaic design in the art. 

This cabinet door matches the mosaic table top.

Snuff jar vases for wildflowers.

I have a bunch of them and they were my Grannie's.
Sweet memories. 
My love of flowers comes straight from my Grannie.

The wildflowers are rudbeckia, native lantana, widow's tears day flower, and partridge pea.

I just have to say one thing.
If you came for a visit to the Garden Palace now, you would not have to try to imagine my vision.
It shows now and thrills me to no end.


Registration to all of my classes will end Monday June 29th.
Access to the classes will end July 29th.


  1. It's beautiful! And I love the wildflowers, too. I wish I COULD come for a visit. It makes me a little sad to see the Ning classroom closing. I had such good times there with you and all the Diary of Faces ladies. You brought a real sense of community and interaction to the class that I have found rare in online classes. But if it's time for you to move on to other adventures, I understand that and know you'll make it interesting, whatever is next.

  2. I LOVE that repurposed shelf! I've been wanting to do something like that for my enclosed porch at my studio. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What a lovely place you have created. If I came to visit I am sure I'd want to stay. You'd have to throw me out, LOL!


  4. I love this! I went back and looked at more of your recent posts about your garden palace. What a magical, creative space you've created!

    So sorry that you're closing the Ning site but I understand. I thoroughly enjoyed all the classes I took with you. I've learned so much from you over the past several years. I hope you continue to teach somewhere and keep sharing your talents.
