On Etsy since 2007

I'm Renee Garland, TRAVELER, Adventurer, WANDERER, Seeker, Curator and Creator...

Welcome to our lil online presence!
In my early years I grew up in the Maine woods in a little cabin surrounded by the natural world. My life was filled with art and handmade textiles and baskets crafted by my mother. We lived in a beautiful community of artists. As I grew, I became inspired to travel the far reaches alone. I spent many years exploring and adventuring around the globe. My heart grew to encompass all of the artists and crafters I was meeting along the way. A vision formed for me to create a lifestyle where I was helping to support handmade works, and the people who make their living in this way. I then began my collaboration and design process to bring you this brand. I believe that following your heart to fulfill your dreams leads to pure happiness. This is how I have chosen to direct my life. Discovering a sense of purpose for myself happened in 2000, and started by taking a single step…or perhaps more of a leap!

As the buyer for Waterlily, sometimes I find myself drinking chai with the chai wallas on the streets of Jaipur, or riding a camel through the Thar Desert. Sometimes I find myself in the temples of Northern Thailand discussing dogma with the monks. Or sometimes I find myself wandering through the forests, meadows and beaches of Atlantic coastal Maine gathering stones and feathers. Our brand is about the journey, the exploration, the inspiration …wherever that takes you! We welcome you on our journey. Feel free to connect and come along!
