Easy Fairy Garden

Easy Fairy Garden by Linzer Lane Blog

I have been obsessed with Irish Moss this summer because of it's tiny daisy like blooms. My mom bought me a pot of it last month at a lovely greenhouse near my parents' home in Lancaster, PA, and I’ve been dying to do something cute with it!

My little one Leon has been getting more into miniatures (no doubt because I show them to him daily ;)), so this was an easy way to enterain him this week.


All you need is a pot filled with moss, or any other ‘container friendly’ groundcover. Stick some sweet miniatures on top such as mushrooms or woodland animals. Fairies need a place to rest, so don’t forget a chair or bed for your tiny garden!

Seashells make for an excellent ‘path’ that the fairies can follow.

Don’t forget to mist or water your moss often, and place a glass dome on top of it if you see it needs more moisture in order to thrive.

If you do try this idea, pretty please comment below. I would love to see it!

Tulip Town

Tulip Town in Jersey City | Linzer Lane Blog

This month has been the strangest April in probably all of our lives. There’s a repetition to the days and an underlying sense of fear that makes us all kind of feel blah. On Saturday I walked to the waterfront with my husband and little Moose and was really thrilled and tickled by a lovely tulip surprise.

Adorning the Newport, Jersey City waterfront are hundreds of multi colored tulips. Gorgeous pinks, reds, purples and yellows.

I’ve been living in Jersey City a long time - and I can tell you flowers are few and far between here, that’s why the whole thing made me want to take some pictures and report back to you guys!

On the walk home, I told my husband I might write about our day and he said, “You mean Tulip Town?” I thought that was cute.

Easy Easter Cards


Easy Easter Cards Craft | Linzer Lane Blog

A lot has happened since I posted our last craft on the Linzer Lane Blog! All of us are now in our homes living a different reality than we ever dreamed possible... my way of dealing with things is to continue to make art daily, and craft with Leon whenever possible. We made Easter cards this week, here’s how we created them:

Draw a simple design with black permanent marker on a blank greeting card. I chose an egg shape with ears ;) Add a cute greeting like ‘Hoppy Easter’ on the bottom.

If your child is very young, have them use fingers to make tiny ‘confetti’ dots all over the card. If they are a little older use Q-tips or a small paint brush. My mom bought me a colorful acrylic set that worked perfectly, but any non-toxic paint will do.

That’s it! Super simple and cute too!

Dear Friends & Family that follow the blog - sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted! Leon has been keeping me busier than ever, but I’m going to vow to add something here once a month to keep you posted on our crafty adventures. If you’re in Hoboken this February, please stop by the Valentine Pop Up I’ll be hosting at West Elm... prints and greeting cards will be available for purchase.

I got a precious few hours to craft alone this week, so I made a little something for our door. To make your own Valentines Day Wreath, use the inside of a wooden embroidery hoop as the form. Loop a piece of nice ribbon to the top for hanging. Cut hearts out of felt and hot glue them to the hoop, being sure to alternate colors as you go... Add some extra sparkle with liquid glitter (mine is from OOLY).

Big News!


Linzer Lane | Artwork for Little Ones by artist Lady Lucas
**Hi All! Just wanted to share with you all my current plan to re-brand my online shop - with the name of this blog! Stay tuned for the new website coming soon**

Dear Loyal Baby Lucas Followers, I have a big announcement to share with you! I've decided, after much thought and soul searching, that going forward the name of my online shop and kids art brand will (soon be!) Linzer Lane. I began Baby Lucas a little over a year ago, while pregnant with our son Leon. The goal was twofold - to offer adorable baby gifts and artwork to families, while working at home so I could care for our new little one full time. This past year I have used every single nap and hour of spare time to create, print, ship and market Baby Lucas. It has been a wonderful experience that has allowed me to continue my career as an artist, all while being assisted daily by my mini co-worker. My initial vision for Baby Lucas was to offer a wide array of gifts for baby (clothing, plush toys, books), but slowly I started in realize that you were mostly looking for something quite simple - darling art prints for your child's space. Not only that, but out of all the many things I was creating, you were most taken with the world of my of my Linzer Lane animal characters. 

*About Linzer Lane* In 2014 I moved abroad for two years with my husband to Salzburg, Austria. During that time I was enchanted with the lovely way of life there. The beautiful storefronts, immaculate cafes, alpine animals, and ornate holiday rituals. We lived on a street called 'die Linzergasse' - and I started to create characters that lived in an imaginary world inspired by our neighborhood. Ever since we moved back to the US in 2016, I have held and nurtured that experience within my artwork. I have grown to really love this little cast of animals, each with their own unique personality and story, and I hope their adventures will entertain and delight you throughout the year.

Can't wait for this new chapter to begin, and to continue offering you adorable artwork for little ones!

Much Much Love, Ashley (aka Lady Lucas ) & Leon (aka Moose)
