Give Away Day!

Thank you to all my followers! I was very excited to finally reach the 50 mark and I appreciate every single one of you. I love hearing your thoughts on my artwork and other bits n bobs that I post about.

To show my appreciation I want to give you the chance to win 'Paulie' my sweet but sad little birdie painting from my recent exhibition.

Paulie needs a good home and all you have to do to be in the draw is tell me...

Who's your favorite artist?

I'm heading off on a work trip soon so I'll draw the winner when I return on the 26th of November.

Good luck :)

Jess Purser - Purrr's Shop

I'm always drawn to illustrations that have been created directly onto ages book pages. I though these little images were just adorable.

Jess Purser is a designer/illustrator from Surrey in the UK.

These beautiful little illos are created using ink and acrylic on vintage books, then they are mounted onto plain white card.

What I also love about these pieces are the figures relate to the books that they now reside on.

You can purchase her work on Etsy or see what else she has been up to on her Typepad page.

Spring has Sprung!

I'm loving spring... here are a few pics from around my house.

Beautiful Blooms
I was lucky enough to win this beautiful tree from work, after we used it in our display at the Life In Style Fair this year. I'm told that its a crab apple tree. But I'm not 100% sure. So if you think it might be something else, please let me know :)

I bought this Butterfly from EziBuy Home magazine. I have to hold my self back, there are quite a few things that I could by for there.

Awah, so cute when they are sleeping, so naughty when they are not.

 If only I could just walk up and cuddle her instead of chasing her all over the backyard when its time to go to bed.
