Welcome to Oak Hollow Cottage!
Within the Oak Hollow Cottage we present Nana Pat’s Goodies, Meditations Gifts beaded jewelry and the Art Jacket Project. Food and fashion from one place? Yep! We like to think good taste and talent can be expressed in many ways. We love good food, and we love beauty, nature and all the things that nurture the spirit. We can’t contain our creativity in one area!
Nana Pat’s Goodies are self-explanatory! I create jams, jellies, mustards and sauces. All of the sweet things have half the expected sugar, or less. I work with in season local produce for the vast majority of the goodies I make. There are things that do not grow well in Florida that I source through local businesses like Wards Supermarket. The only complaint I get is that folks run out of my goodies too soon!
Meditations Gifts are the products of my mindful making. I make jewelry, trying to stay in the now and let my work be my meditation. It sounds sort of mystical, but the results are my art – and you can wear it! Necklaces, earrings and bracelets out of vintage seed beads, semiprecious stone beads and anything else that I think works.
The Art Jacket Project – Using my own photography as the base, I apply the images to recycled denim jackets. Each jacket is a work of art and unique. I will not repeat the same combination of art and jacket size and style, ever!
What are the driving motivators for we here at Oak Hollow? Appreciation of craftsmanship, love of nature, gratefulness for beauty, and a need to express these things are in what we do everyday. We try to embrace living gently on this earth, and with the people we meet and work with. Recycling materials, cooking from scratch, growing our gardens organically, taking time to see the glorious panorama of life on our planet: these are the steps we take to make our lives and our products things we can be proud of.
Welcome to Oak Hollow! We hope you like what you find here!
