Keep in touch with those you love with more than a phone call or text. Send a card with a lovely sentiment to brighten these long days. Getting a card from someone in the mail is always fun.
These festive Bunny Trail ones are perfect for this time of year. Ringing in Spring
with its oversized rabbit and bright flowers. It is a large 5x7 flat card so great to write on with an envelope big enough to also tuck a bookmark, photo or little memento and send it on its way. You can also use as a postcard if you prefer.
Take a look at these and other cards using my artwork in my online shop. Your support of small business and creatives like me is greatly appreciated.
Hoping these beautiful sunny days find you well. Love to all.

While you get cozy with your coffee and a book be sure you have a beautiful bookmark from theRDBcollection to use. It makes a great little happy or gift with a book too.
The pictured bookmark is the Blessings from Laveau. It is a beautiful bookmark using art from my New Orleans cemetery collection. The brick wall with the famous X-markings is where people make wishes or ask favors of Marie Laveau.
More bookmarks are on the website. Choose from traditional 2x6 bookmarks and petite 2x3 ones with plastic holders.
It's a lovely way to mark the page you're reading.

Art is a great addition to your fireplace mantle. Add a beautiful statue, candles or other pieces and you have a lovely vignette. When the holidays roll around you add garland, a wreath and other holiday decor to make it perfect. Add something wonderful to your home and to your art collection.

Art glass is a wonderful way to add beauty to your dinner or party table.
This particular jester plate comes as luncheon size plates. They are gorgeous round a luncheon setting atop gold edged chine chargers. Each plate has gold gilting as well to add to the elegance of the art.
Carnival luncheons will be extra special with these. If you prefer, you can order one to simply display year round by sitting atop furniture, hanging or putting on an easel. A special order of a set to use for parties, luncheons or dinners can be accomplished by contacting the owner-artist via email.

Add to your cocktail parties and carnival fêtes with these gorgeous coasters. Protect the antiques in a pretty yet practical way. Guests are forever needing a place to sit their drink while chatting or getting food and this solves the problem in such a lovely way. They are absorbent and reusable which is such a bonus. I am using these too for all my carnival season get-togethers, our impromptu parade gatherings and, of course, our annual carnival soiree.
Several styles are available on the website.

Count the days with calendar cards pretty enough to frame.

With my love of carnival from Mobile to New Orleans I have dedicated part of my work to art and other lifestyle items celebrating that wonderful time of year. I artwork for your home; trays and art glass for entertaining or decorating; clutches, totes and laptop sleeves to make your work and personal life better; and a wonderful selection of stationery. I design all using my artwork.
This travel mug is just one fun example of items with the carnival theme. Keep all your drinks for watching parades or for every day perfectly tasty and ready. The stainless steel insulated cup and tightly sealed lid with flip top will be your go-to cup all year long.
Check out my website for more selections. I also have a shop on Society 6 at www.society6.com/theRDBcollection for more manufactured items using my artowork. It's a great satellite shop for those items I cannot make in my studio.
