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!

butterflies

I’ve been obsessed with spring life and have been drawing bees, butterflies and beetles. Last weekend it rained and was a chilly 60 degrees. I had a fire and painted.

pocket note books & hex signs

I’ve got hex signs and pocket notebooks for sale in my etsy shop. The hex signs are 15 x 15 on reclaimed wood. The pocket notebooks were watercolor paintings that I turned into a repeat pattern and have them created into journals. They were inspired by the birds I see here in happy valley and my own imagination.

The journals are printed in full color on 100% acid free recycled paper interior and exterior covers, the pocket size journal is the perfect addition for your commute or travel bag. They are $12 plus shipping.
Each pocket journal is handcrafted with care in the USA.

  • Dimensions: 3.5” l x 1/8” w x 5.5” h; 0.1 lb
  • 48 pages of blank, lined, grid, or checklist page inserts.
  • Printed in full color bleed on 100% acid free recycled paper; hand made in the USA.
