Welcome to my shop. I opened this shop in honor of my wife. My wife is very ill with Chronic Lyme Disease, and is not well enough to run a shop herself. She has always had a passion for nature and a talent for photography. All of the photographs on this site were taken by her over the years. She loves nature and everything about it, so most of her photographs feature birds, wildlife, flowers, and the natural beauty of our environment, with the exception of some pet and holiday pictures! She loves to find the quiet, often unnoticed beauty of tiny roadside or forest flowers, waterfront and landscape scenes that she discovered along the unbeaten path, or elusive birds and wildlife, but also enjoys the vivid colors and beauty of her favorite flower gardens, sunsets, and beaches.

She always wanted to try and sell her photographs at local craft shows, but has not gotten the chance due to her illness. I decided to try and do this for her with Etsy’s help. I use her photographs to make photo greeting cards. I also sell the photographs as matted prints that I create. I hope to make it a success, so she can take it over herself someday.

I don’t think many people realize how devastating Chronic Lyme Disease can be. My wife has been sick for many years. She was finally diagnosed and started treatment two and a half years ago, but it is a long, horrible, and slow process. It is a truly debilitating and misunderstood illness, and it deserves a lot more recognition than it gets. If I can make a go of this, in the future, I plan to donate a portion of the proceeds to Chronic Lyme Disease research, education, and awareness.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my shop
