Front Door Stories
In The Studio!
March is here!
Spring can't be to far behind, right?

The snow will melt and we will see the earth again, smell the fresh smells of spring and forget all about the colder days. The trees and plants need all the nutrients this melt will give.
Did you know that the snow collects all the nutrients from the sun as it waits to melt?
In the studio, I fill buckets and watering cans this time of year and collect the rain water in warmer months. I save on water and it's way better for the plants too!
It's a thing, so you have to try it!



Stop by between 1pm & 6pm Friday's or
Saturday's 11am & 3pm
every weekend to experience the scents of spring and
find treasures to bring into your home, office or gift giving.

Inspiration is always free!
