One of my annual artistic goals is to buy a piece of artwork by another artist. Artwork in this case would be something that I can hang on the wall, since I don’t really have anywhere else to put it.

Anyway, in December I bought my first piece of artwork, this lovely print called “Two of a Kind”by Emily Winfield Martin…

two of a kind

I just adore Miss Martin’s work. There is something intriguing and endearing about her whimsically odd fairytale figures. I particularly love this piece; it is very sweet and intriguing – I would love to know the story of these two figures. I love the pale hair of both, and how the girl’s eyes are red like the bunny’s, but it looks perfectly natural instead of weird. And the little star in her hair is a perfect touch.

Miss Martin has an Etsy shop – The Black Apple. If you like my lovely print be sure to check out the rest of her work!

Thanks for stopping by!

happy birthday!

So another year has gone by; and here I am another year older. When I turned 40 last year, I had high hopes. They didn’t quite pan out. But 41 could be the best year ever!

I made the above little birthday collage; everything is from the Fairy Tea Party collection by Ellie Lash, from scrapbookgraphics.com.
