There's a New Blog in Town!

Garden Gate by Gigi

I must tell y'all about a wonderful blog that has recently made its debut in the blogging community.  

Trained as a graphic designer, Gigi has branched out into many other fields since college.  Interior design, custom-made lamps and finials, gardening, name branding, clothing design, artist extraordinaire...You name it, she can do it.  As you can tell from her painting Garden Gate above, she is extremely talented.  

Gigi's latest endeavor is a humorous and informative blog named The Girl with the Flying Stripeze.


Isn't her banner awesome?  Of course she designed it herself.  I'm telling you, this girl is GOOD!

I've known Gigi for quite a while, and I never cease to be amazed at the things she can do.  Replacing the heating element on her dryer, creating a beautiful mosaic tile design on an antique bird bath, remodeling her kitchen almost single-handedly (her husband "Paco" helped her with this one), re-tarring a leaking roof or preparing a gourmet meal - these are just a few of her many accomplishments.  Believe me, there are many more.  Not only will Gigi offer clever tips and ideas for amazing projects on her new blog, she will show you how to do them "on a shoestring budget."  What could be better than that?

So I hope all of you will follow and like The Girl with the Flying Stripeze, because not only is Gigi creative and funny...she's my little sis!


Everyone can always use a little lipstick!

  2. Hi Sarah! Yes, this is really a picture of Sis and me, taken a VERY long time ago. I used to be able to boss her around, but that's all changed now.

    So glad you stopped by. I'm working on several new posts, including one on my favorite footwear...what else but Toms? Stay tuned, and try to keep cool down in Austin. Not easy to accomplish during August in Texas.

    1. Kathy, glad you stopped by to visit. I've lost your email and don't see a contact here on your page. Send me a note, and I'll send the info about the shop where I got the tassel. Hopefully she can get more. Someone out of state makes them for her shop, but they are few and far between. ~ Sarah

  30. It has been simply incredibly generous with you to provide openly what exactly many individuals would’ve marketed for an eBook to end up making some cash for their end, primarily given that you could have tried it in the event you wanted.
