Happy New year to all. It has been far to long since I have posted on our blog, my apologies, it is a new year,with a new resolve. Heidi our sweet neighbor in Burton, has graciously offered to assist me in posting more often, she will take and post photos, and I can add the text.. sounds like a plan. Our web designer Christie also will be a part of this team,but as she lives miles away,her availability is less. These young talented women are a gift to me, and I appreciate all that they do helping Ludmil and I with our work.This first photos is a signature piece from Ludmil, followed by a Martin House… a bird condo. Ludmil only makes about 3 a yr. as they are time consuming, they make a wonderful focal point in the garden. For winter it adds an impressive detail.These birdhouses will be showcased at our spring shows in Houston, Urban Market Feb. 11/12 and some will head to Marburger in late March.. but I will post about that closer to the time. You are always welcome to drive by our place here in Burton to view these works, or to purchase if you simply fall in love at first site… if our cars are here we are “open”.
This amazing cabinet is one Ludmil built for me years ago to house my collection of wedding vases, as you see here. I took the vases to our first show here in Texas wanting to bring my best , a lady named Marcie bought several from me at that time, years later when our trip to France was being planned, the most amazing thing happened, Marcie, was referred to me by a friend to contact about renting her house in France while she was here in the U.S. when I contacted her, she told me the story of the purchased vases and how it started her love affair for them as well, soooo while we were in France this year I re-purchased a new collection, and here they are. I have decided to also sell the treasured cabinet. As those of you who know us, we are constantly changing our surroundings, swapping out this for that… it has wonderful trim that we bought on another trip years ago to France, and molding.. it’s a beauty, as all of Ludmils pieces are.
The restored French aviary is such a stately piece….. it speaks for itself , lots of detail, rebuilt to last a lifetime, a treasure for any ones home or garden. We had one client use an aviary in a sun room for finches, can you imagine waking up to the sound of those sweet chirps..o
