Old Fashioned Ivory

"Peace -- that was the other name for
    ~Kathleen Norris

   I can't believe that it is November (I know I say that every month.)! A part of me is shocked that time is passing so quickly and the other part of me just wishes it was CHRISTMAS! It's coming though and I love the days leading up to it. I will just have to be patient. I have been so busy lately - thankyou to the lovely people who have been ordering commissions lately! What a wonderful, happy kind of busy! This weekend I have balanced between art"work" and family time and I have loved every minute of it. I haven't had a lot of extra minutes to take pictures this week because there has been so much happening but I did manage to snap these few and play with them late one evening. -------->What I love about my home: the softness of everything, the flowers, the ivory walls, the way everywhere you look there is something pretty, the ambience, the coziness, and all of the old-fashioned things.

P.S. I included a my favorite corner of one of my recent commissions at the end. I love the curly haired girl!


  1. Your home is just sheer loveliness.


  2. Jennelise, you did it again! Soft, romantic, old world, dreamy - I could go on and on. I, too, like to step into a different world once I close the front door behind me and walk into my "home". I'm lucky I have an understanding husband who indulges me in my quest for yesterday with a sprinkling of today. I can't wait to see what scrumptious photos you're going to come up with for Christmas! I'm like a little kid - I can't wait! Blessings to you.

  7. Love your beautiful world, dear Jennelise...
    So happy that you are busy with orders. Could you please e-mail me what a custom work like the one above would cost? I would love to do this for my sister...she adores the print I ordered from you.
    Thank you!
