Meet Linda!

Pin It Now!

I'm sure many of you already know Linda from Linda's Blue Gate Blog. She makes these gorgeous yard conservatories from old windows! They are perfect for inside and out! Someday I'm going to drive to Texas just to buy one!
She even made one with a fairy garden inside. I really want to make a little fairy garden someday!!! She is also the creator of these beautiful fork chandeliers. You may remember mine in my big birdcage. I'm so happy to announce that she has started her own etsy shop to sell these!!! I also wanted to share this window in her guest room with you! I LOVE THIS!!!
Linda has some really exciting news....her yard conservatories are featured in the June issue of Romantic Homes Magazine!!! I can hardly wait to get my copy! Congratulations Linda! I'm soooo happy for you!!!

Those are so cute. I just emailed your link to my sister...she has some old windows in her garage that she doesn't know what to do with. This looks like her style.

Linda lives not far from me. We're planning a trip to my favorite garden nursery with some blogging gals. Appropriately named: Blue Moon Nursery! Yes, Linda is quite the artist!

Cindy, I love Linda too. She is a very talented lady and very nice too!

Some time ago I saw her blog and showed my sister the conservatories, we have been picking up old windows, old china and even an old door. We hope to get started this summer on a small greenhouse.
I'm so exctied you posted this because of course I didn't save the link. Now, I have my source of inspiration! Thanks, Mary

Wow! How wonderful they are! I am going to have to make one, now that I've seen them, I'm inspired! I'll bet Linda would make one for you and ship it to you, although, maybe a few days in Linda's lovely surroundings would be great, huh? Blessings, Celene

I am so excited about meeting blogging friends who have articles in some of my favourite magazines.

Somehow it makes the articles even more special, because it makes me feel like I 'know' people a little (from their blogs).

We'll be on the look out for that June issue!

Not only is she a fabulously talented woman, but she's also the nicest person!

I LOVE those conservatories! Isn't she just brillant. The fairy garden is so darling (I want to make one too).

I'm thrilled she has an etsy store and I bet those fork chandy's won't last long!

Hi Cindy, Thanks for posting about Linda,...she does good work. I am going to tell my daughter Lynnette about the little greenhouses made out of old windows. She replaced her windows in her 100 year old farm house and maybe she could make one of these!

Love your blog!
