Searching for a Blog

Like most of you out there in bloggy-land, I often go from blog-to-blog, clicking on new blogs on others' blog rolls.  You know how we can all get so carried away that we don't even remember where we started!

Well.....I am longing to find one that I stumbled upon a few times and for some reason, did not "follow" or even make it a favorite.  I know not her name, but I do know her subject.  This lady (maybe even a husband/wife team) plants beautiful plants in the most unexpected containers.....hats, shoes, dishes, pianos (I know!), other musical instruments, etc.  I admired her creativity as I had done a few myself and was so inspired to see her incredible work as well.  She went so far beyond what I even imagined.

Does anyone out there know what blog I might be describing??? 

These are pictures of the booth I did a few years back.  It was a great hit at this particular show.  I always incorporate plants as I think they soften edges and bring peace to a room.  They made me feel like this little booth was "me." 

I was really pleased with the overall affect.
I feel it was unique compared to my neighbors.

One can't have a garden gate without a beautiful vine
to give it a hug!!  I put plants in the barrel too.
That architectural element in the back was the first
piece that I had ever painted and sold!

Here....an herb resides in a French glass canister.
This chest now lives in a cabin in the Carolina's.
The door to the right is an old screen door that I painted and
put a mirror behind.  It lives at my friend, Dotty's, house.

Pineapple mint planted in an old oil can.
I really like that one!
Charms hanging from faux apple blossom
branches from Cathy Penton Designs.
 I also had plants in vintage plant stands too.  For the back-drop of my booth, I copied pictures onto pages of old books (or left them plain), punched holes in the tops and bottoms of the pages (I had to use clear hole reinforcers as some of the papers were so fragile), tied them together with string, then hung them from the frame my husband made me from pipe.  I was very pleased with the result.  I really did not want to see my neighbors and wanted clear deliniation of my own space.  The air conditioning blew them around gently. I was surprised how many people asked about it....even had a couple of offers/inquiries to see if it was for sale.  It was not.  I gladly shared my "how-to" though.

Anyway....back to the blog search.  If you have any ideas as to whom I am referring....please let me know!!  Many thanks to you all.

P.S.  I have this verse typed on a little piece of paper at my desk here at work.  It especially good for me and where I am today:  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path."  Provers 3:5-6

    Your booth looked great !
    Love how you hung pages from an old book as your "walls".
