Featured: The Observer of Clarke County

Reading the newspaper has been a habit of mine for as long as I can remember.  Growing up, we received 3 newspapers each day - The Washington Post, The Winchester Star and the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times on Sunday.  Today I still walk with the studio dogs to the end of the driveway to pick up newspaper each morning.  I love the feel and smell of the paper in my hands and just can't get used to reading the news online.  I'm honored to be featured as the cover story on The Observer's September issue.

I spent a wonderful morning in late August with Claire Stuart, a fellow flower lover, talking about how Beaumont House Design began.  It was wonderful to sit in the studio and chat.  Of course there were flowers involved!  After our conversation, we sat and made beautiful flower crowns, talking about flowers, insects and gardening.  You can find the feature here
