Welcome to Loose Ends

Who We Are & What We Do

 Sandi, Art & Thistle      

Are you looking for “outside-the-box” art, design and/or decorating ideas?  Well, so are we, and we’ve made a lifetime career out of it!

About This “Blog”

So, here’s the plan – Our blog is the place where we will share information, ideas, inspiration, observations and an assortment of random thoughts on just about anything that catches our interest (all those “loose ends”).

About Our Gallery

Our Artwork Gallery is the “landing place” for Art’s and my personal artwork. Here we share what inspires us, and how we express it.
