Another I LOVE

Speaking of artists I love...I was first introduced to Laura Trevey when a client of mine showed me these watercolors she bought on Etsy...(horrible picture, I snapped this to remember the colors, not thinking one day I would post it)It was love at first site. I LOVE watercolors and the fact that they are very affordable makes me love even more. On top of that I was pleased to find out that Laura is just as sweet as the paintings she makes. When I saw her new hydrangea series I knew I had to share them...
Love this guy...
A few more I love...
One of these will be mine...
For more of her work be sure to check out Laura's Etsy shop and also check out her beautiful Blog

Dear John (Robinette)


Dear John Robinette,

I hope I am not being to forward but I love you, well I should say love your work. Actually obsessed may be a more accurate word. When a client in Memphis sent me an image of a painting you did she was thinking of purchasing I almost feel out of my chair. I was hit by LOVE. She purchased two and I must admit I am feeling jealous. Beside the Memphis/Mississippi connection we share, what is most striking about your paintings is that they seem to actually glow. This weekend in Oxford I was able to view some of your works in person at the Southside Gallery...They were setting up for the show, that is why these are on the floor....
This one will be mine one day, no not the big one....
This little guy right here....See the reserved for Marianne Strong sign right beside it (okay maybe that is just a plug but a girl can dream can't she?)
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE....LOVE.
Saving my pennies...

I know, you have seen this everywhere in the blog world, but who doesn't love Bobby McAlpine?
The very sweet Lizzie left me a message to check out the yellow and gray bins at Michael's, especially the gray and white stripe pencils.....then later followed up with an e-mail alerting me to a picture on High Heeled Foot in the Door...Thank you Lizzie, you know me so well!
These, I am not sure if I would wear the first one but I like to think I would...

Giveaway! Crow Biz from Etsy

I am so excited about today's giveaway! A while back I came across what is now one of my favorite Etsy shops -and I fell in LOVE. This shop, run by the very sweet Carol, is made up of so many great (and REALLY affordable) items but my favorite are the printed images on book pages....
I think they would make fantastic, unique gifts- wouldn't this be great for a nursery?
This one resides in my kitchen- I got it because we joke that our dog is a red fox (long story) and liked that is was unique but significant....
But I may have to get this one as well, look the background!
But Crow Biz does not just offer printed sheets; also offered are paperweights, magnets, jewelry, blocks and more....So, for the giveaway we were thinking one of these prints....(perfect for an Easter Basket)
or
However, if you see something else you really love on Crow Biz that will be considered too. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment and be sure to stop by the Crow Biz shop. The giveaway will go through Sunday and the winner announced Monday the 29th. Good Luck!
