i was lucky enough to stumble across an amazing artist and her shop while i was in florida.
her name is ginger and she is a doll.
when you meet someone and immediately think, "i totally wish she was my next door neighbor," well in my book, that only holds true for very special people.
when i asked her about making me a custom piece, recognizing my blog and and my mantra, she smiled and said, "i'd love to."
when i returned to pick it up, the shop was closed and she was airing out her store.
sadly, a little eatery just two doors down from her and sharing the same building,
burned up in a horrible fire.
thankfully she only suffered smoke damage.
fortunately we were still able to pick up my little piece of art.
when we walked in and i went to the back with her to her "work table"
she gave me options for some of the finishing touches. i basically said, "what would you do?"...."just do it your way." after all, she's got a style that i just adore.
while she finished up, i walked around and took some photos to share with all of you.
her style. her art. her flea market finds.
everything in her studio is just yummy.
before we left, we spent lots of time talking with her. she has an amazing amount of energy, with ideas and visions that mirror some of my own. i can only hope that maybe someday our paths will cross again.
her adorable shop/studio is in grayton beach. she's also in the process of opening another shop in the same plaza called "wunderland" for children. we got a sneak peek and it's going to be amazing. so if you find yourself in the panhandle, i highly suggest you visit her. you won't be disappointed.
and if florida isn't on your radar screen, lucky for you, she has an etsy shop....
tell her "beth sent you."
