Design and Decor: Granny Dott

I was telling a new friend about a great little store that features local artist’s and designer’s work.  I went on to talk about about a particular cut paper artist’s work that I really admired.  Before I could finish describing the work, my friend interjected “that’s my great-grandmother-in-law!’  And sure enough, she was right.  (One thing I have learned since my recent move to a small town is that everyone knows everyone)

Granny Dott is “ninety years young” and has spent a lifetime creating art and hand crafted items.  She recently opened up her own etsy shop called Granny Dott’s Creations featuring her hand cut silhouette art.  Her shop is currently stocked with monograms which I think would be perfect for a child’s bedroom.

i just have to share that i placed an order with her as a gift for a friend the other day and she and her daughter hand delivered it! talk about great customer service. :) and it’s always nice to meet the artist – her work is really high quality in person, too…
