Morning Light Studio on Etsy!




My dear friend Gretchen has opened an Etsy store called "Morning Light Studio" and I am so excited. She is so multi talented it makes me a little sick. She is an accomplished painter, quilter, and photographer. She also makes all kinds of jewelry-beaded, silver soldered and precious metal clay with precious and semi-precious gemstones. As if that wasn't enough, she also makes wood furniture! Yikers Gretche! Knock it off already! Somehow she is able to do this while raising 2 amazing kids.
So far, you can find her fantastic bags and purses in her shop. I am so super lucky to have received these as gifts and they are truly great pieces. She lines them in hand dyed fabrics and spares no detail from the inside to the out. There are plenty of pockets inside and out for keys and lipgloss. Plus, they are super sturdy. I have had mine for years and they are so well made that they just last and last through everything. I especially love how she combines different patterns and colours. I can be wearing my daily wardrobe of old work levis and a black t-shirt and grab one of her purses or bags and suddenly I feel all snazzy and pretty-cool!
Check out her shop! Her banner is made from one of her paintings of her late dog Chelsea whom she loved so much. She has done so many portraits of her own and other folks' beloved animals which are stunning and really capture the pet's personality. She is an all around amazing girl yet so down to earth, funny and the best friend ever. If I didn't love her so much, I would have to be jealous!

Hee! Silly Gretche! You crack me up you cukoo! Of course this is all about wonderful you! You have nothing to live up to-you have already done these things! I wish I lived at the old house so I could come over and give you a kiss and smell your hair! Hope you are having a good week. We need to get going on the Wedding!
love you lots and a little bit more!
