Featured Artist : Bonnie Johnson, Fabric Artist


Miss Millicent Mouse, avid home gardener

Imagine transforming yarn into a watering can, a basket holding flowers or a gardener mouse – fiber artist, Bonnie Johnson can!

Her knit and crochet work is so detailed that both children and adults delight in it. Each creation is made with custom accents that Bonnie just dreams up as her fingers fly along.

Although her needles have turned out everything from sweaters to socks and all things in between, Bonnie’s real passion lies in conjuring up magical little toys.

Lucky me, Bonnie is one of my dearest friends. To celebrate the beginning of this new blog, she surprised me yesterday with a darling little gardener mouse.  I have named her Miss Millicent Mouse.

There might just be a miniature garden coming Miss Mouse’s way that she can tend and water.

And…lucky you! Bonnie’s Bonnie Bear Boutique on etsy.com is having a “Christmas in July” sale on all her wonderful stock of toys, handbags, baby gifts and accessories. You can have one of her creations too!

hand-made flowers to bring your garden inside and sweeten your home

my personal favorite, Seaside Bunny, to conjure the smell of the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves *does not come with sand*

and my daughter Meg’s favorite, Leon the Lion, that makes the coolest retro baby gift for all of her new-mommy friends
