There's Something about Mary...and Gayle!

I asked these two ladies to give me some background about their specialties in order for us to get to know them a little better. Here's what I learned!

Mary Padilla is a decorative artist that specializes in murals. She embraces the imperfections of objects and looks forward to the restoration process--she can fix anything. Mary has a gift for transforming dilapidated roadside treasures and reclaiming their beauty. Gayle Batt loves to shop and she needed to find an outlet for the treasures she can't leave behind! She loves making ordinary items extraordinary and pushing the envelope on what people expect in decorating and accessorizing. Bring the two ladies together and you have a eclectic collection of goods that are simple, exotic, charming, odd, eccentric, classic and in almost all cases these objects will speak to your heart.
