Custom order client preview...Italia scroll

I had a custom order that I wanted her to see before I shipped it and thought I'd use it as a good example of a custom order. On my website, you will see a button for custom orders. It is for you to pick and chose exactly what you would like. It is completely your design ideas. I work closely with you to design a piece I think you would love. You get 5 design ideas for me to work with and I go from there. You will always get to see it to approve the design before I send it. These are always a lot of fun. Email me or click on the "custom order" button to create your design. If you want it in time for Christmas, time is running out!


Two more...

Measures approximately 1" square and has the tumbled rock edge. {28.00}

It measures approximately 1.5" square. It features the tumbled rock edge and a vintage crystal rhinestone charm. It's made from non-toxic, lead-free silver.
I will be adding more each day on the blog and then onto the website. This new watercolor, "Crystal Sea" is one of my favorites. It has just the right amount of shimmer that makes it look like the water is shimmering from the setting sun-just gorgeous! It is even more beautiful in person, as almost all of them are. I am not a photographer, so this has been challenging to capture just how beautiful these are. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! I've added my antique dictionary illustration of a bulldog. He's over 100 years old. This is a one-of-a-kind piece. Once he's gone, he's gone.

I hope you're having a wonderful time shopping, decorating, spending time with family, celebrating etc. It's a magical time of year.

Warm wishes~

New designs~Watercolor originals!

This project is close to my heart for many reasons. My sister, who is an artist teamed up with me to paint these beautiful, watercolor originals for me. She has always loved to paint and has many beautiful paintings to show for it. She is amazingly talented and never ceases to awe and inspire me. These miniature watercolors are each one-of-a-kind. They vary in size from 1.5"-2.25". They will be on display in Gulf Breeze, Florida at the craft holiday show this Friday. I will be adding her work to the website as a new line that is ever-changing with one-of-a-kind paintings. This is only a very small sampling of her watercolors. This is extremely exciting for me because it has always been my dream to have my sisters working with me. So, I would like to introduce you to my new watercolor artist at Ellenay Designs, Sonya Thompson.

With Love,

P.s. If you are interested in purchasing any of these designs, please email me for pricing information.
