Entering my studio in May there is no getting around the fragrance, or the walls of lilacs surrounding you on both sides as you walk up the path to my studio door! Here are some photos of the entrance, and a tall vase of mine with lilacs. The beautiful and meticulously done place-mat under my vase is made by local fiber artist Melinda Baughman. Her work is made from all re-used fabric, or up-cycled as she says. See her work and read her fun and informative blog at Autumn Olive.
