I’m thrilled to share my capsule collection with Protect My Shoes! Olivia reached out months ago after purchasing some of my shoe stickers and asked if I would dream up a beautiful pattern that could be featured on her signature shoe cushions and shoe bags. Of course I enthusiastically said yes and got to work designing a grandmillennial inspired pattern featuring English roses from my garden, pretty pink bows, and the sparkliest heels. Here’s a look at the final pattern, Romantic Rose

The result is a vintage wallpaper inspired look – each piece gives the appearance of having its own patterned mat! These art prints are equally beautiful framed straight to the edge as they are framed with an added mat. Let’s walk through a few options of frames and mats to give you some inspiration…

Inspiration for the 2023 Heirloom Egg Collection…

Painting these little jewels is one of the creative highlights of my year. This is the third year of hand-painting ceramic bisque eggs to celebrate the spring season and I’m delighted to share a bit more about how this year’s collection came to be… I’ve been on a bit of a vintage plate kick as of late and have loved incorporating plates as artwork in our home. While scouring Etsy for pretty ones (there are so many great vintage shops on Etsy), I came across this shop and these antique bread and butter plates.
