Texas Treasures Meinzer & Smith on My Desert Love Blog

I had a beautiful moment. And I am compelled to share it with you. It started out with an amazing video and then I chased that white rabbit down some inspiring holes. Here’s to Wyman Meinzer and Doug Smith – two talents of Texas . . . or what you might call “Texas Treasures”! Day […]

Words from a Stranger

Let Your Heart Lead the Way - quote photography desert My Desert Love Blog & Designs

Words from a stranger inspired me to put together this image and share this post. It’s time to “let your heart lead the way” . . .   It was a day of volunteering at the Big Bend Ranch State Park’s Visitors Center. I walked in and a lady in purple was perusing the book […]

Big Bend National Park: Inspiration on Instagram

Instagram Big Bend National Park on My Desert Love Blog featured img

“Big Bend National park is preserved, protected, and almost as wild as the day it was made. It’s the essence of Texas as we like to think of it — a gift to Texas and a gift to the nation.” ~ a dear quote I love from Big Bend National Park Impressions (Farcountry Press). Have […]

An Ocotillo Obsession in My Artsy-Fartsy World

The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of. Leonardo da Vinci quote at MyDesertLove.com

**Warning: A little bit of a rant ahead** I have always been the excitable one in my family. “Its really not that good, Vi.” “What is the matter with you?” I like something, better yet – love something, I’m all a-tither! My puppies can relate – yes, I have an invisible tail. I’m confessing now. […]

Guest Blog: Coming Home

My Desert Love Blog Guest Blogger Elizabeth A Garcia Home img 01

~ Originally Published on Elizabeth A Garcia’s blog: July 10, 2013 ~ When I first decided to get away for a while, I only meant to experience the west, not have it invade my heart and soul. Somewhere on the list of national parks and other places I couldn’t wait to visit was a vague […]

Ocotillo Obsession Series 01. Vibrant Blooms

My Desert Love Blog & Designs: Ocotillo featured image

In this first of my “Ocotillo Obsession” series,  I am featuring my progressive shots of the vibrant ocotillo blooms. OCOTILLO Fouquieria splendens Origin of “Ocotillo” — Aztec-derived “ocote” refers to a pine that was used to make torches. Therefore the name “ocotillo” refers to a “torch”! Imagine a spring day, in the desert . . […]

My Big Bend Love Says NO to Trans-Pecos Pipeline

Defend Big Bend @ mydesertlove.com

  Have you heard of the Trans-Pecos Pipeline? It is a dark cloud hovering over my world since the beginning of April 2015. If you have encountered my Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram feeds – it probably has been noticeable how much it has preoccupied my mind. Really wish it wasn’t so. I would much […]

Marfa Love: Past & Present Contemporary Art in Marfa

marfa car contemporary art installation mydesertlove.com

You never know when you’ll need your camera out. Especially in Big Bend Country. A buffalo was on the side of the road one night. It was huge. In my wildest dreams, I would have gotten a picture of that, but actually it was much too intimidating to stop for. Maybe behind the fence, but […]

A Peak Inside My Graphic World

working the home image www.mydesertlove.com

Just like in Wizard of Oz – no “wizard” behind this curtain. Just me behind my laptop, playing with my graphic images. . . I do not have a background in graphic design or photography. I have never taken a class – I have taken classes in *oye* too many, many other things but funnily […]

My Desert Love selling at Big Bend Ranch State Park 03

I mentioned in a previous post that there was a “Part Two” to my craft projects for the gift shop at the Sauceda Ranger Station at Big Bend Ranch State Park. In “Part One” I used one of my current loves – metallic bronze spray paint to revive a rickety old card display rack back […]

My Craft Loves to Spray Paint Birds!

Big Bend Ranch State Park could always use a volunteer. I guess I could volunteer – so I passed the inspection process. Not much competition, *phew*. Now, the question became what could I do? Its lovely when everyone’s too busy to actually tell me what to do. I’ll step back and admit that I did […]

"Love me, love me . . . Say that you love me!"
My best seller and most inspiring and challenging orders are my custom orders. The most popular call is one from the romantic heart. I don't know if its the big sister in me, but its such a joy being a part of this thoughtful process and I'm always motivated to make it as extra special as I can.
So why not customize your card and I'll help you say it from the heart ♥

How I love all things fabric and its lovely to connect with others who share the same love and consideration for our future. Just a little difference in our every day habits make such a big difference in the long run. Fabric towels and handkerchiefs has helped our budget as well as how much we waste.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for all that you do.
