ARTEFACT


I think it's best to let "Dave" describe his world...


and how he and ARTEFACT came to be.


 How have they have morphed and evolved over the years.


It's an amazing story of one man following his passion 


and the journey it has taken him on.

When you begin a story telling me someone has followed their passion in life, I'm immediately drawn in. Dave has very eclectic tastes, I'll have to go to his site. Thanks for sharing something I knew nothing about!

Thanks for sharing, feeling the need for a little inspiration this morning, and am always excited when I read a success story about someone following their heart.

My very most inspiring shop - I always have to stop for coffee at that complex when we go up to Sonoma (which is often). Sit in the courtyard, play with the dogs, listen to the wind chimes which are deep and thrilling, not chirpy little ice-cream vans - a moment of bliss....

La D: These are gorgeous images! What an amazing story ~ wish I could visit, but this is the NEXT best thing, for sure! I love the dog statues and the dog painting/print as well as well, EVERYTHING else! Happy Monday! xx P&H

You do truly find the wonderful. This is another place I'd need to rent an RV to linger a second day.

Wow! That is a fantastic spot. I would love to get lost in there for a whole weekend. I think my husband would enjoy it even more than I would. He is specially fond of treasure hunting. It must be the adventurer in every one of us that places like this beckons with the chant of the mermaids.
