Long before I even knew what a blog was, let alone had one, I spent time on a photo sharing site called Flickr. I discovered a community of some of the most talented people… artists whose medium is sugar! It was through Flickr that my baking skills really flourished. I know that my skills as a baker have grown by leaps and bounds as a direct result of the inspiration and encouragement I found on Flickr!
One of the most talented sugar artists I’ve ever seen is a cookie decorator named Maryann Rollins, or as we know her on Flickr, “Cookie Artisan“. Take a look at her gorgeous cookies HERE. If you don’t have time to see them all now, take some time soon to come back and really marvel at her incredible skills! I have marveled at and studied every photo she has posted over the last 2 years and I get excited ever time she posts a new one!
Today I want to do a little show-and-tell of another side of this talented woman… her home decorating skills. Maryann and her family love Halloween and have lots of fun together each year creating an array of beautiful Jack-o-lanterns. Maryann has been gracious enough to let me share some of her beautiful outdoor displays. The photo at the top of the post, and next three (below) are from a previous home on the east coast. The bottom photo is from her current home, in Oklahoma.
Enjoy these gorgeous, welcoming displays….
Thank you Maryann!
Happy fall decorating everyone!
