happy valley yard

Hi! A couple weeks ago when I was showing you the interior of our house and the loop hiking trail, some of you asked to see pictures of the front and back yard. We rent and I don’t really like the paint job on our house, but it is quite a lovely view from our deck. Here are some shots of our front and back yard, enjoy!

Happy Mothers Day!

This week I thought I would share my house with you. I live in Happy Valley in Santa Cruz on a 200 acre pear and apple orchard and rent the original farm house that has hard wood floors and great views down the valley to the ocean. Here are some pictures I took this week of the interior of our house.

happy valley news

It’s been a fantastic week, lots happening in happy valley. The garden is in now. We’re having a drought, so it will be interesting to see how I can water less, but still have a small garden.

Also, got news last week that my hex sign art was chosen to be featured at a local store called Stripe Men. It’s an awesome store in downtown Santa Cruz right off Pacific Ave for men decorated in mid century furniture and vintage items. They provide an inspirational playground for customers to find products from some of the best local talent, like me 😉 The art show is on Friday, December 4 from 5-9 PM  and the art will be on display and for sale through out December. Super EXCITING. Everyone is invited.

Lastly, I am super stoked to be featured a couple weeks ago on a blog called a Daily Dose of Pattern. Check out may pattern and if you like patterns, check out Esther Bley’s patterns. She does some really lovely work.

What have you been up to this week.
