Gardenia is the author of "A Bubble Moment." It is full of not only recipes, stories, recollections and memories but delightful art on each page as well. What is amazing is that no one book is the same!

The Edison Ford Winter Estates sometimes features author and artist Katie Gardenia at their gift shop at the Winter Estates. Today they welcomed her, and her trunk show, at the Edison Ford Shoppe.

Examiner.com attended the trunk show, met Katie Gardenia, browsed through all her delightful art, plus had a book signed. Others had this to say about Gardenia, her art and her book.

"I love her work. She is so nice too. I have her book, and it is the main book in the house on our table in the living room."

"I not only have her book, but I also have some pieces of her art. Today I chose two 'Fingle Finger Forks.' One is decorated in a mermaid theme, and the other in seashells. I love them!"

"Oh my goodness, I not only have her book, but some of her hand decorated note cards too. Each card is a piece of art, and instead of sending them in the mail, I plan on keeping them and framing them!"

Other pieces of art included small, medium and large sized "dolls." Some represented the sea, such as mermaids, while others were more like rag dolls and represented days gone by. One could also see a feline theme in some of her pieces.

"If you are in awe of Katie Gardenia's creativeness, it does not stop there, as she even creates jewelry!" - Edison Ford Shoppe Customer

At the trunk show Gardenia spoke of how she makes some of her art. It would be impossible to share all that here, so go to her website to learn more. In addition, fans can follow her at Facebook.
