Fabulous Putti

I have always loved old Putti and Cherubs... and the limewood carved ones are most Divine. I am going to start a collection of them for my store. Most of these are from 1700 - 1850. Some of them are from Churches, other are from private homes and collection in Europe.

Gorgous Hand Painted Wall Murals

There is something magical about the fluidity and gracefulness of something hand painted, and these canvas wall murals take your breathe away. They have a soft airy nothing that makes you feel relaxed and happy... like when you're having a picnic except you're in your home. We have used her for a number of design projects - one will be featured in Accent Magazine this spring and another is soon to come.

This is what design luminary Charles Spada once said, "I'm not a fan of wallpaper, I've never been a fan of wallpaper. It's so automated, so mechanical. I love murals (because) you see the artist's hand..."

I've had this folding mural in my store as a prop for years and I love it!
One of Susan's great charms is that she works with you want a horse or a squirrel in it - no problem! And of course you can take the work with you if you decide to move...isn't that a treat?
So call her up to beautify your home.
