So when an artist is asked to paint for a well known brand, it’s pretty exciting.  Late last year our friends at Plum Pretty Sugar came to me with an idea and today I am so honored to share the fruits of this idea! {BHLDN carries an exclusive collection of Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Robes from Plum Pretty Sugar and now one of our watercolor pieces is part of this collection!} We worked through about 6 different pattern options in various palettes but landed on what we call our Peach Peony Garden pattern. {Have a closer look at the pattern!}

Now the Hubby and I live in Pennsylvania on a larger plot of land his parents gifted us.  We built our […]
