It is the ultimate of casual attire. They started out as undershirts for the boys in the military. In the 1950’s after Marlon Brando wore one in A Streetcar Named Desire, the t-shirt finally achieved status as fashionable outerwear garment, and ever since, they have grown wild in popularity. Everyone has t-shirts worldwide. They are simple, comfortable, and easy to wash after a days work or play. The best part they can make a statement about who you are and what you love, support or believe in.
I am so excited to announce that Dominique from 3C Style, Darren from the Arty Plantsman and myself will be launching a new shop, Fashioned By Nature, on Threadless.
Every month we have been publishing our posts, When Fashion and Nature Collide. Our fantastic team has created many t-shirts over the past months that we believe in. We are so excited that they will soon be available to purchase under our label, Fashioned by Nature.
This is a teaser to our November Issue of When Fashion and Nature Collide. These t-shirts were created by Dominique, Darren, and myself.

At times life can really be trying. For most, we have to plan our time with family and friends, save for the things we need and want, and have many responsibilities to tend to (food, a roof over our head, and electricity). It’s not easy to do this day in and day out. But these things, I am thankful for. From these we learn responsibility, lessons, love, and truly what is important. Sometimes we struggle and other times we look around and realize our accomplishments.
For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving on the 22nd take the time to tell the ones you love that you are thankful for their love and friendship. For all of you reading, I am thankful for you. Thank you for enriching my life, sharing your stories, and allowing me to learn and grow. I appreciate you.

I know it’s not time yet. We haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving here in the States, but we are close. This year, I am just chomping at the bit to put some of my decorations out. Usually, I decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I don’t know if it is all the Hallmark movies, or the hiking in the snow, but I am ready to embrace the season.
I created the image above for a frame that I change the art out for the season. I am sharing this 8×10 Santa print for personal use. Click on the image to save to your device.
Are you preparing to decorate for the holidays?
Have a wonderful weekend and happy decorating!

The world of clip art has endless possibilities for creativity. Invitations, greeting cards, wall art, transfers, it’s limitless. Some of the best works come from the 1800’s public domain. I have been collecting some damaged pieces, actually I am like a chipmunk collecting a feast for winter. Anyone who lives in a snowbelt area can understand why :)It’s always incredibly rewarding to make something old and unusable into something new again.
I hope to be changing up my shop to include some of these pieces. I am adding commercial clipart so that others can use these in their own art. If you are a crafter or artist looking for unique clipart please feel free to message me. Or need a blog logo, I’d love to help you create something you are looking for.
Be on the look out for freebies here. Please feel free to click on the image above and save it to your device. Looks great on recipe cards, or as a special botanical piece
Explore. Slow down to appreciate what surrounds you. Enjoy the sound of the rain, look for the shimmer in the frost and snow, and the bursts of color nature provides. Keep a journal of ideas and scribble illustrations. Take pleasure in seasonal feasts and harvest. Tell stories. Mark your legacy. Cherish handmade. Try your hand at a new hobby. Wood burning, bird watching, painting, and gardening. Renew and restore something old into new. Everyday, take a moment to slow down to admire the moment of the season. Breathe deeply, live beautifully and choose kindness.
Taking in the simple pleasure of the season. An Autumn Frost.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
It amazes me how fast the landscape can change. How quick we can slip from summer into fall almost seamlessly. This weekend, the wind whipped through the trees changing the landscape once again. Many leaves have fulfilled their purpose and now decorate the ground with their fading color. So much work to do in the garden, but the fresh cold air will be a bit of relief after the humidity of this past summer. Nature seems to be taking hold in many parts of my life.
What I wasn’t ready for was seeing the big snowflakes that covered the ground in a thin blanket of white. With that blanket came an unexpected sense of peace. The responsibility of outside chores were washed away. The thought of driving anywhere had vanished. Perhaps winter is our time to slow down to appreciate the things around us.
As you can see, I have much work to do in my yard. The wind knocked down many trees this season, but I’m afraid it will be work to do in the spring.
For now, I have started a new ink drawing of an Ox Eye Daisy that I will share soon on IG. There is also a new set of four bird prints at my shop.
What do you like to do when the season keeps you indoors.
Have a beautiful week!
