Behind The Lavender Whim is my friend Jill-Ann, a small business owner, artist and illustrator located in Ellicott City, Maryland.  Jill-Ann's paintings are colorful and playful, are printed on greeting cards, note pads, stationary, gift tags and wrapping paper. She also creates custom watercolor paintings and that's just what I've commissioned The Lavender Whim to do a few times for my First Time and Forever Home Buyers.

The Pottery Stop has a lovely variety,  ornaments, mugs, bowls, plates, piggy banks, plagues, flower pots and ...
