Featuring Georgina Soojian

I want to share with you a talented artist who designs wreaths and floral arrangements.  Her name is Georgina Soojian, or Georgy for short.  Her shop name is Wreathmic Creations

All of Georgy’s creations are her own original designs, some of them being one of a kind that cannot be duplicated.  wreathmiccreations are handmade in her smoke free and pet free shop.

This one is called Celtic Cross.


Georgy Soojian lives in a small suburban town in Northern New Jersey.  Her family has been vacationing in Cape May, New Jersey for the last 15 years.  Cape May is a beautiful Victorian Era seashore vacationing spot that is famous for it’s Victorian homes that have been turned into Bed and Breakfasts.  Georgy loves visiting these beautiful homes, with their gorgeous flower gardens and learning about the people who once lived there.  It is from memories of her past vacations in New Jersey and nature that Georgy gets her inspiration for her beautiful designs.

This beauty is called  Cardinal Swirl Wreath

Georgy started making floral wreaths as gifts for friends about 15 years ago.  She is a self-taught floral designer, and a couple years ago she took an online Floral Designing course and got her Certificate.  

Georgy spends most of her time gardening and watching the birds that come to her feeders and of course, making her beautiful floral creations.

A Look At My Flower Garden

P6050038 P6050033 I took these pictures last Friday, and it’s taken me this long to finally post them.  Thought you’d like to see my flower garden with the painted rocks and tiny bird bath.  This is the prettiest little bird bath I’ve ever seen, can you see the lily pads?  Thank you honey!  I can’t figure out how to make the pictures bigger yet, so sorry it’s so small.

Here’s another shot of my garden.  Oops, I have to still remove that brick in back.  Funny how I didn’t notice it until now.  Out on my deck I have this beautiful Hibiscus plant.  It looks like a little tree.  I am hoping I can bring it in the house for the winter.  I’ll have to do some research since this is the first one I’ve ever bought…I just couldn’t resist it.

This is my flower basket that’s suppose to attract hummingbirds.  (Hoping and praying)  I guess it’s called Fuchsia.  That’s what the tag says and when I googled the word, this is the same flower I came up with.  I also have a little Fuchsia in my side garden right in

front of the birdbath. 


Thought I’d throw in a shot of Paul and I on our tandem.  Running beside us is Dusty, our almost 2 year old dog.  He loves going for runs with the bike!  We’ve had a tandem for 16 years now, and love going riding on it. 

Well, that’s it for now.  I am hoping to do some painting tonight, yikes – it’s already 4:22.  What’s for supper?  Who knows! 

Visit my etsy shop for my paintings, pendants and magnets.  Also, stop by my website, sign my guest book and say hi.  And don’t forget to smile : )

Another Rock for My Garden


I started this one last weekend, and finally got to put the final touches on today.  I’m not sure if it will go in my side garden or in the back.  I don’t know if this will be the last one or not, only time will tell.  : )
