Ten years of kitty love

September 27, 2018

Happy adoption anniversary to my favorite little black and white friend! It’s no mystery that we’ve both changed over the years. But I really realize it when I look back at the post from our third anniversary together. Cheers to many more years to come! You make me smile every single day. – love kitty mom

Labor Day fun 2018

September 6, 2018

BF John and I left for Dandridge, Tennessee, early (like 3 a.m. Central early!) on Thursday night to spend a long weekend with my brother and family for Labor Day weekend. What fun! And … I managed to be productive and start two step stools that have been on order since the Art in the Garden show in June. (Yes. I’m slow when not given a deadline – something I know I need to work on.) I’ll post pictures of those in the near future. Meanwhile, check out the gorgeous Douglas Lake we enjoyed and a couple pictures of the silly and courageous John and Bill (brother – left)!

Watering cans at Aurora too!

September 5, 2018

Not in the Naperville area?

Two of my previously posted watering cans are now at The Growing Place, 2000 Montgomery Road, in Aurora. You can run to either location to grab one for yourself or pick one up as a gift.

Both locations still have summer hours until October 31!

Water for everyone

August 15, 2018

When it’s this hot and dry, the birds need fresh water too. Filling the bird baths is a daily activity that Archie loves. Yum! Bird-flavored water!

It is watering season. And it’s been SO dry which makes it all the more important to fill your cans and get out there. If you haven’t yet, you should sign up for the TGP newsletter. They share watering tips in the latest edition plus other great info. Use the link in the sidebar on the right to reach their site.

Meanwhile, check out a closer look at the watering cans I have at the Naperville location so you can pick one up and water in color!

I’m so excited to announce that I’m a guest artist at TGP! I delivered my first group of watering cans on Monday.

Of course, they had the perfect table to display them in the gazebo by the checkout area. I’m inspired every time I go there by the clever ways they display merchandise to the expert flower combinations in the planters. Checking in on my cans will be just another reason to make more frequent visits.

I would love to hear comments from anyone else who has visited one of their locations. My watering cans are in Naperville.

Thank you for coming out to the Naperville Growing Place¬†last Saturday for the Art in the Garden festival. As usual, it was a wonderful (although H O T!) day. It was very nice to visit with those of you who already own a “jen” and came back for another or just to say hello… and to those of you who purchased an item for the first time this year, I look forward to seeing you again!

Remember to contact me if you have an item of your own you’d like freshened¬†up or to check on my inventory to paint you something I have.

Enjoy the upcoming holiday weekend. Happy Fourth!
