My Photo

about me

  • I am a dollmaker. I love antique fabrics and hoard them. I collect old china doll heads without bodies and leather doll bodies without heads and never put them together. I have stacks of old photos of people I don't know. I have two smart and funny kids who complain that I hang plates on the wall instead of pictures. I have a great husband who travels with me and who I used to garden with but now don't because all I do is make dolls. Luckily he still likes me. So all in all somewhat normal ...depending , of course, on who you ask.

Nicol, The roses are vibrant! Do they perhaps cover a gate to the Secret Garden?


They are so vibrant I can almost
smell them!


ooooh, delicious Nicol. Who wouldn't want to be home with that view? Add in your precious family and you have a beautiful day, yes? Home. I agree, the best place to be.


Dear Nicol,
It seems that you travel so much, therefore you must have a deep appreciation for your abode!

Thank you for introducing me to Lori Ann. Her work is stunning and superior, like yours.

I'm glad you have your work. You bring beauty to the world, and it can be your anchor.


I forgot to say CONGRATULATIONS on being featured in the Somerset Blog issue. You go girl!

A well-deserved rest, I know. And after all your shows, it must be nice to come home where your garden is putting on a show for YOU! Enjoy, enjoy.

Hi Nicol!
I'm having an Artful Blogger party on my blog this Wednesday the 8th to celebrate the publication and artsy blogs everywhere. Congrats on your article. Hope you'll join in the fun.


Are those Cecil Bruner Roses? Lovely! I too feel 'Home is Best'! Can't wait to see you again!

Those roses are divine! Put your feet up and grab a cuppa tea!


It is such a blessing to truly love to be home. I agree with Lauren, HOME, it's the best place to be.

Hello Nicol! your garden looks lovely. i know what you mean about coming home, it's the best place to be. My husband and I always ask ourselves, Why don't we go out much, and the answer is, because this is where we want to be, we hardly ever want to leave. Are we crazy? hope you will come over for a visit some day. take care.

We share similar passions-Gardening is truly my therapy. It keeps me on this side of sanity-barely...
