Sunshine Artist is featuring Barbara Umbel in June! Check this out!

One of my favorite artists has been featured on the cover of Sunshine Artist Magazine for June 2013.

Congratulations! Barbara & Rick. Until recently Barbara and Rick Umbel lived and worked in my neighborhood. I enjoyed times we spent together. They have since moved away, but they are doing great and her work is just as gorgeous as ever! She makes the most beautiful jewelry with shells and stones, silver and gold.  Many times I was fascinated by the designs that Barbara and Rick would make. The colors in the stones and shells were mesmerizing and every piece is a one of a kind!
That is definitely My kind of Art!

You can read a fantastic article about Barbara & Rick here.

I am so happy for you both!
 All the Best!

Steppin' Out? Maybe not.......

I have always been one that is drawn to anything different, or unique. Okay I'll even admit to sometimes even weird stuff. I like a lot of contrast, lots of colors ( especially very bright vibrant colors).  With that said, I have to say making these planters have been so much fun. My hubby has been doing the copper work and as soon as he tells me what he has in mind, I seem to plan the design. They are all one of a kind garden art designs.I  can't wait to see the next planter he designs.

In the meantime let me know what you think of these.
