Garden Memories, but a Memory

It's a sad day in Ventura!!! Barbara is closing Garden Memories!!
After 18 years she has decided to pursue other interests. She will still be selling from her website
Barbara gave me a wonderful opportunity to sell my paper art in her shop for the last year. It's been so much fun!! People really took to my pieces. If you shop in Garden Memories, and you need to find any of my pieces, please go to Barbara's website or my blog directly. You can always email me with an order. I will still be making crowns, boxes, tags, wands, candy containers etc. If you need beautiful charms go to Martha sold her beautiful charms in Barbara's shop as well.
Martha and I both started out as shoppers in Garden Memories, then both of us became featured artists of the shop. We are very sad that we can no longer go into that charming place.
Soon it will be just a memory!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Oh, so sorry to hear the shop is closing. Your work is so beautiful....the crown you have pictured is amazing.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Oh that is sad. I hate it when one of my favorite places closes its doors.
Your crowns are just incredible!

Must everything always change?! What a shame! I am glad you have already started your Etsy shoppe and hope it will be a good outlet for your beautiful and unique creations.

Oh, Sad to hear that your shop you sold will be closing! Your crowns are so lovely! Perhaps this is an opportunity for something new on the horizon!?

Oh I'm sad! So many great places are closing - its just not fair! Well, I am happy that you started your own etsy shop so that your loyal fans where no where to find you. Everything looks just beautiful by the way!

Wow such wonderful memories I have of Garden Memories. I went there with my mom when she was still well enough to shop with me many years ago. I will cherish those times in my heart! I'm very sad to see this wonderful store go too, Rosemary.
Take care,

This is sad. I have had some friends recently close there shoppes too. For them it was the economy. I will miss my little watering holes of relaxation. The good thing is she will still have an online store to see your beautiful thing in.

Big Hugs!
