Sheila O'Riley presented a timely, spring program on incorporating garden art in a flower garden plot or landscape. As we learned, art makes the garden cheery, adds eye appeal and is a conversation starter. Sheila demonstrated how to reflect your personality through creating & designing what compliments your garden. She had many art pieces made of glass dishes, vases, bowls & other materials found in attics, flea markets or off the shelf. If you want to see or purchase any pieces she will soon be opening a home and garden décor store called She-Nae's located in Creston at 311 W Montgomery St.
