About Me

My photo
Sandpoint, Idaho, United States
I've been married to Chet for 26 years...we have two children together and Chet came into our marriage with two children! (all together, we have 2 girls and 2 boys!) 31, 29, 23 and 21 years old. Yikes! I can't believe I am old enough to have kids those ages! I was born in Louisiana where my Grandparents were cotton sharecroppers and I'm very proud of my cajun heritage. The photo above is my mother, Georgiana Smith Linde at 8 years old. She passed away when I was very young, but she carries on in my heart forever... My hubby supports my endless rabbit trails of creativity and he gets extra "points" for that! Thank you for visiting my swirly glittered- up world filled with paint, glass & ribbon...share the love...leave a comment! Email me! I'd love to hear from you! sharifrench@gmail.com

Self Sustaining Garden...




Wow! Just love my garden! When we purchased this house a couple of months ago, the garden area was a patch of high weeds and a few sad raspberry bushes. My hubby and son went to work and cleared out a space, added seating, and brought in mulch. Since it was so late in the season, I bypassed the seed part and bought established plants (albeit SMALL plants), but they really took off and pretty much took care of themselves! I've been so busy with shows and wholesale orders that I did my "zen" watering every morning, but that's about all. Now, I LOVE going in my wee little garden and finding the treasures...woot woot! I have big plans for next year, since we have a greenhouse too! So excited!
I'm very humbled and grateful to everyone who visited me at shows, or purchased my goodies from a boutique. Thank you for keeping me busy!

Love that you planted a garden right away and love that you decorated it too! I can't wait to see more photos of the studio, the garden, the house and all that makes the place yours...
