This year we shot the catalog in a corner cabinet in my living room. I wanted it to have a holiday feel and settled on the oxblood red interior of my antique Danish cupboard for the backgrounds.

I first designed my angels as Christmas ornaments and even thought they have also evolved to be used as home décor designs, I am always excited to show my angels and ornaments all decked out for Christmas!

One of my daughter’s best friends was married in Yelapa, Mexico on March 21, 2015. Our darling Haydn married Maciek and family and close friends celebrated with them in the remote paradise of Yelapa, Mexico. This was a precious time for all to cherish and remember, thanks to the bride and groom who made this happen!

I have included pictures of the wedding as well as the beach and bay of the village of Yelapa. Yelapa is a 45 minute boat ride south of Puerto Vallarta, accessible only by boat with no cars and no roads. Our lives were touched by the sweet love of Maciek and Haydn and the joy of being together far from the madding crowd.

My last image shows the limpet shells I collected on the beach. So along with the wonderful memories and images of this time, I also have my shell tokens to inspire new designs.

These glorious fall leaves decorate and light up our lives with a golden glow.

The evening light coming in my north window in the summer creates a lovely mood for my angel collection.

I found these tiny glasses to match the Wild Ginger blooms for a sweet arrangement in my kitchen.
