Gardening Motif Etching


I have so much outside work to do but decided to make a garden-motif etching instead. I love it and hope you do too. I have to put all of my watering cans in the garage soon so they don't collect water that expands when it freezes causing them to leak. I learned this the hard way.

that reminds me of rich pewter.
i have always loved pewter...
the poor man's silver. but not now!
now you're lucky to find an affordable piece. i like the simplicity of the pieces. not so ornate. just lovely and useful.

What a beautiful etching! I am so looking forward to cooler weather..

This is lovely! I really like it. It is very appealing to the gardener in me.

Seriously Rosemary, I think you should have some of your photos and 'etchings' made into cards. They would be wonderful for family and friends and for anyone else who would like to buy some - hint, hint :)

I would love to buy a print of this in a small format and place it in a rustic timber frame. A sweet wee garden print :)

I bought a great old pewter coffee pot recently at a house sale.

You and humbird are too sweet to suggest that I sell my photography and etchings but answering the comments and doing a few daily posts is about all I can manage right now and stay afloat.

Tammy....

No time to make cards and sell and mail them.

Too busy. I overslept this morning and am rushing to an office meeting but first have to stop and feed a friend's dogs.

Yikes!!!

Hi Rosemary
I am in the process of purchasing a boutique plant nursery and have been searching for inspiration for signage, business card design etc. I am VERY interested to know if you would give me permission to use this amazing (and very appropriate) etching..

I realise you're a very busy lady, so if you could spare a moment to give this idea a thought or two I would be sooooo grateful..

Many thanks

Karina....

I did not design this graphic. I found it online. I just converted it to an etching.

Feel free to use it....I'm sure it will be fine.
