finding beautiful things......ever a secret garden

i haven't posted in a little while. summer is nearly over which makes me sad but there is still the quiet voice of the birds and the wind that takes me away to a place where i can be myself. 

secret garden
a quiet cove by the sea
gentle meadow
tiny birds

Our new book "Fairy House", a # 1 Best Seller on Amazon and almost sold out at our publisher!!!

Our new book "Fairy House" was released just a few weeks ago on July 14th!! It's been such an amazing time these last few weeks. "Fairy House" has already sold nearly 500 copies and it's a # 1 best seller in four categories on Amazon, so we are so very excited!!! Our publisher also called us recently to tell us that Amazon bought all but the last 150 copies that Familius had of "Fairy House" so that means that out of the original 3,000 copies they had printed, there were only 150 left in their stock. Amazon, Barnes and Noble and all of the other books stores and companies had purchased the rest of the copies!! We were so excited when we heard this incredible news, we just were amazed!!!

If you'd like to see more photos of our book "Fairy House", you can go to our websites at:

If you have purchased "Fairy House" and would like to leave a review about our new book, you can go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and write (even a short) review. That would really help our sales and our stats, too!! Thanks so much. We'd really love to hear from you about how you like the book and if you have any questions about making fairy furniture!!

beauty is......

beauty is a love of flowers, a love of bright blue and deep green. beauty is a calm feeling, a day when roses seem to grow everywhere.
beauty waits, it sings, it wraps it's arms around everything sweet and follows dancing birds and smiling squirrels. 
beauty listens quietly like a silent bird, whose spirit is delicate enough to know who you are when you speak.
beauty cries, beauty sleeps, beauty is as old as life and all that is in it.
beauty is a friend to us, it knows the beauty that is in our hearts and on our faces.
beauty is sometimes frail, but always real enough to believe in itself.

beauty is what we all look for, what makes us kind and good. beauty is love, it is forgiveness, laughter and it is the soul when it remembers what it is like to be a child.

Gorgeous paintings!

Hello everyone! We have been so busy working on helping with the marketing of our new book "Fairy House" and buying and selling antiques......just a whirlwind lately! This is my absolute favorite time of year! Spring! Summer is the most precious to me of all, though. My birthday is in August, so, of course, August is my favorite month, but Spring and Summer have got to be the best times of the year for sure! I love the sunshine and all the spring flowers, everything blooming and happy!! It all makes me very happy! So, I hope you are having a wonderful, glorious springtime and getting outside a lot, too.

These photos were mostly from Tumblr, my absolute favorite place to find beautiful art!! Would love to hear from you!!
