Simple design, simple color palette.

Its plain.  Its simple.



Mary Ellen……. my grandmother who loved the outdoors and loved ferns.  She was from a time and place of plainness. And simplicity.







  1. Isn’t simple simply divine? I think I rather venture to simple and take a deep breath! we all want to go so detailed and complicated in the western world. I truly love the Asian way of art and way of thinking. 🙂 lovely ferns Debi, my mother was a lover of ferns and I think of her often when I see them, or it reminds me of the woods. Both are wonderful in my mind. 🙂
