Garden Gallery

While on my visit to Iowa, my mom took me to the home of Jolene Rosauer in Grundy Center. In and around her home you'll find the Garden Gallery and Gift Shop. Jolene is a talented artist who loves to garden and buy antiques at flea markets and estate sales. She has combined her talents and hobbies to offer a garden walk and shopping experience every Saturday throughout the summer. She has had so much interest, she will be continuing into October.


You can begin your visit in her garden where you'll find antiques and her glass art. She creates flowers and garden towers out of vintage glassware. Each one is unique.




Throughout her home, she has artfully displayed a variety of antiques. She has vintage linens, depression glass, pottery, antique kitchen tools and dishes, plus more of her artwork.





Jolene's medium of choice is photography. She sells her popular line of photo cards, "Greetings from Iowa", as well as canvas prints and bookmarks.


The Garden Gallery and Gift Shop offers something for everyone and the atmosphere invites you to linger and gather inspiration for your own home and garden.

If you are in the area, be sure to stop in to this hidden treasure and tell her you heard about it here. You can also visit her Etsy site.
