At Scentimental Gardens my hope is to create an environment of visual beauty and inspiration.
When you arrive at the shop, you will be greeted by an ambiance of lush English gardens, the foundation of my craft, enveloping our 1905 Queen Anne home turned shop.
Once inside, the avid traveler, antique hunter/gatherer side of me takes over, ever attempting to artfully blur the edges of interior to exterior. Frequently I am asked, “How can you part with that piece, you will never find it again?” Easy, is always my reply, I only want to possess it for a moment and see the delight in others as they discover that one-of-a-kind treasure.
