And lovin’ it

New Look. New Content.

New (old) way of living.

It’s been 8 long months since Covid hit and much has changed in our world. One positive thing that came out of all of this is that life has sloooooooowed way down.

Many of us needed that.  

I needed that.

My whole world turned upside down, and I am enjoying the new perspective.  

It’s all about Hygge (defined by the Oxford dictionary this way: a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being)

The New Normal

The reset

For months I sat at home waiting for life to return to normal.  Longing for it, actually.  Sitting still was uncomfortable.  Not being able to hustle here and there, trying to make a living felt foreign.  How would we survive?

But survive we did.  We thrived even.  And now I can’t ever imagine going back to that spiritless, numb, rushed existence.  I refuse to.  

So we have to figure it out.  And we will.  So what will become of this page?   I guess it will be my public journal.

Why should you care?  You shouldn’t.  Nothing I have to say is earth shattering. My opinion is no more important than any other.

But if you are looking for something to pass the time in a joyful kind of way, grab a tea or a glass of wine, and sit a spell.  We’ll both be surprised by what pops up here.

Coming in Spring! Watch for articles and events about plants as food and medicine, notes about woodland places to soothe the soul, landscape art, and more!

I like green things. Gardening, house plants, herbalism, great food, hikes in woodland places, crafting with nature.  Oh my!

Customer reviews

A few words from some of my customers.

Holly is a gifted artist – no question. We have an 11 year old chocolate lab. Realizing that he wouldn’t be with us too much longer I asked Holly to paint our dog in oil as a keepsake. Both my husband and I were “blown away” by the end product which looks like a photograph of our beloved Grizz. We couldn’t be more pleased. My husband admitted that he thought at first that this was a silly idea. He is now delighted with the oil painting which depicts the way our dog is most of the time…sitting down looking up at you. You will not be disappointed should you decide to hire Holly to conduct an animal portrait for you!

Holly is a tremendous creative force. She excels in free thought art as well as commemorative decorations. From the moment i first saw Holly’s creativity, i was extremely impressed. I have purchased some of her original art and proudly display it. I also asked her to reproduce a picture of my parents on a keep sake box. She did such a great job my children contacted Holly to thank her as it brought tears to their eyes, seeing such a beautiful painting of their grandparents. I highly recommend Holly to fulfill your creative needs. She has the uncanny ability to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

A flight student said his wife is an artist and completed her first aviation themed work and he’d bring it in to show me.  “No Limits” immediately transported me to being in the air on some adventure by the sense of motion she conveyed and the creative use of mixed media (old news clippings and maps) woven intricately into the landscape and background.   It depicts a Golden Age Biplane and a time when anything was possible for those pushing the boundaries of this new frontier.  I am thrilled I could purchase it as the centerpiece of my flight school and that I have the Original, Holly Connors’ Original, of her Aviation works.  There are many great aviation artists out there, but Holly has already established herself as one of the very best.
