Exquisite works of art fashioned from Nature’s bounty for you!

I craft ephemeral sculptures from bits of nature to celebrate the extraordinary beauty inherent in the most ordinary objects.

I've spent a lifetime learning to preserve and present nature in alluring and interesting ways. I love to share what I do with others. In fact, to continue on my artistic path, I must distribute my work to make way for new creative exercise. My shops are a happy byproduct of my lifestyle.

I spend most of my time in "play clothes" doing something fun every day. I cut paper silhouette portraits. I grow, dye, preserve, and arrange everlasting flowers. I glean grass, grain, and wayside plants from farm fields and fashion what I gather into wreaths. I hand carve, etch, and marble eggshells. All this is presented here, on etsy, for your consideration.

I am a solo act. Everything I make is one-of-a-kind. I solicit suggestions and requests so that my goods will exceed expectations. In doing this, I have met many interesting folks who have helped to expanded my horizons.

I am grateful to you, my clients, for your kind words and support. Your interest in my work keeps me humble and at your service!

    Shipping, Quality Control

    Although a solo act, I am sometimes assisted by my cat, Jack. He seeks out eggs that do not meet his high standards and eliminates them from inventory. Jack makes sure that you will receive only superlative quality goods!

You'll find a bit of me in everything I make. I celebrate nature by creating everlasting arrangements, ornaments, and wreaths made from found objects and beautiful botanical materials. I'm fortunate to have such a wonderful job; this luxurious lifestyle motivates me to provide my very best work for clients. I try to make each transaction, each contact, a positive experience.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I prefer PayPal or credit card payments, but may authorize a check or money order payment under certain circumstances. Please contact me if you wish to send a check.

Mistakes happen. If you click "buy" in error, let me know immediately and I will cancel the transaction.

New to Etsy? Here's a great guide to help you with your first purchase:
Unless otherwise requested, I ship parcels USPS priority mail (2-9 days in transit) from my home post office in Bishop Hill, Illinois 61419. Insurance is included in shipping. Expedited shipping is available at an extra cost. Please inquire for a detailed quote.

Excluding holidays and weekends, I mail within 1-3 days of payment - with the exception of special orders. Estimated shipping dates for custom items are described in those listings.

Shipping prices within the US are shown. On occasion I ship to international destinations. Please contact me to have a country added to a listing. I will review shipping options and suggest the most economical carrier.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want every customer to be a happy with what they receive. I will gladly exchange an item, or rework it to suit, but I do not offer refunds. Everything I dispatch is insured for its full value. Claims for damaged goods should be made by the purchaser to the carrier. In the case of items declared lost, I will file a claim and issue a refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to sporadic seasonal publicity, sometimes I experience a large number of requests for my work all at once. During these peak weeks I limit sales to the items listed in my etsy shop. When I am able to return to "business as usual" I resume taking custom requests.

Feel free to contact me throughout the season and I will share my current timetable for special order delivery with you.
