Autumn green window display-84

If you’ve admired our most recent window display by artist Sandy Brock, then you’ve likely noticed the contribution of vibrant yet cozy-soft florals by Maeberry Lane Design that sing out among the deep green doors and shutters.   The handiwork of Glendora artist Kelly Manning, the handmade floral arrangements, wreaths, signs, and more make delicate decor […]
