My brother Rick is the head horticulturist at the CBG,and is in charge of the Fruit and Vegetable Island. Terry and I spent a beautiful few hours out there last week,taking in the fall colors!

Perfume Lady Nudes

These were done for a swap for Ali's group.We had to use vintage perfume labels and vintage nudes.I loved doing these...I even added leaves for a small touch of modesty!
