If you live in the country, you will surely see chickens somewhere. Why not in a pillow. This one will travel with me, to be for sale at the local flea/community market. You may also see it in my shop before then, as I only go to the local flea/community market once a month. We set up a booth for La PetiteFleur.
Sunflowers are a great. They always make me smile. Seeing how it has been raining here for the last few days, why not make my own sunshine. The trim is vintage, as well as the buttons. It is hand beaded in the center of the flowers and along side the trims.
Everything I do inspires my work, from my long country walks and the flowers I plant in my gardens, to my travels to other places, particularly trips to Boston, MA and Austin, TX to visit my daughters. I am constantly on the look-out for new ideas, whether inspired by the Vermont countryside or the city, close to home or far away, tasteful and traditional or whimsical and adventurous.
I live in Perkinsville with my husband Andy. We have two daughters, Shanna and
Christina. All three of them have supported me with La Petite Fleur, making it a
true family business!
