Beautiful and delicate - looks exactly as pictured and is very well-made. Nice touch with bells between flags. These flags will add a wonderful feeling to my meditative space. Really quick shipping and great service. 5 stars!

The name of my business is Touch the Earth and I always say the best way to "touch the earth" is in the garden, on your knees, pulling weeds.
Bill and I work together on our products; I create the designs and do the hand printing and Bill makes the lanterns and created and maintains our web presence. Our studio and garden are located in the small Oregon town of Veneta. I am a member of the Veneta Park Board and at our annual Easter Egg Hunt I have the privilege and fun of being Grandma Bunny, in charge of the "no tears" policy! Bill and I are both members of the Oregon Country Fair and the Eugene Saturday Market, which makes it possible to get personal feedback about all our products; that is not only helpful but is often very inspiring.
It is no surprise that we have developed a lot of garden art products, such as hanging, table top and floating candle lanterns, Zen bells and garden flags, as we enjoy working and dining al fresco in the garden overlooking our pond.
I began doing art festivals when my children were small, traveling with them coast to coast, in the 1970's and 80's. Bill, too, entered the world of art festivals in the 70's. We met over 20 years ago and joined our lives and art. After some 40 years we find doing local festivals and filling orders for shops, galleries and, of course, our wonderful Etsy customers keeps us whirling and swirling, loving the dance of life.
The tai chi that I have practiced these past 40 years, stretching and breathing, helps to keep me in shape for screen printing and working in the garden. Bill is a walker and enjoys a 4 mile stroll through the hills of Veneta and Eugene on days when it is not raining....which is always a treat in our Oregon rainforest!
Check back often to see all the new designs and products that we are creating.
