  • The Praying Mantis

    Garden critters seem to know I love them and because of that often pose for a photo or come into the house to visit. Birds, hummingbirds, butterflies, lizards, frogs have all been short term visitors until I relocate them to a more agreeable location in my eco friendly garden. Not that I don’t appreciate the […]

Imagine a world without birds, butterflies, bees, ladybugs, and the beautiful and magical garden creatures that make a garden a sanctuary.

  • The Eco Garden

    I design and make eco clothing as a profession but create eco gardens for my soul. Growing up on a farm in Minnesota, fields and gardens were a major part of my family’s lives. We fed ourselves, many relatives, and supplied local markets with the food we grew there. My Mom tended lush flower gardens […]

  • The Color Green, St Patrick’s Day, & The End of the Rainbow-Via Huffpost

    Photo of Ingrid Haubert by Pattie Traynor When the Empire State Building changed its lights to Green, I felt it may be safer to stay indoors. I launched my business in Manhattan during the 80’s and on St Patrick’s day, people would get a little too crazy with the green beer, or whatever green substance […]

    Handwriting a proper thank you may seem outdated and old fashioned these days.  Growing up, it was important to my mother that I have good manners, behave, and if I couldn’t manage that, I should “just snap out of it” She also taught me to write thank yous. Thanks for that Mom. Today is her […]
