I was so thrilled with excitement to receive an update from a lovely young lady for whom I had recently done a custom sketch:

She kindly let me know that it is now permanently 'embedded' in her:

I have been looking at these little feathery creatures more often than usual lately ~ as I am currently working on a little portrait painting co-starring an owl~ and thought I would share some of the gorgeous images I have found around the net: 
I fell in love with this beautiful wallpaper from Abigail Edwards. My, If green-blues accented with gold could be indexed as one color, it would be my absolute favorite :) And now I really really wish we could have some wallpaper...sigh. We are currently renting, so I can't possibly bear the thought of having to go through wallpaper-ing  the house if I am going to have to say goodbye in a few months' time.... oh well.

Some lovely owl-inspired jewelry:
 1. Medal of Honor in Owl by Modcloth
2. Gold shell owl necklace by Dorothy Perkins
3. Small Owl Locket Necklace by Urban Outfitters
4. Chubby Owl Clamp Bangle by Asos
5. Odell's Owl Cocktail Ring by Emitations
6. Owl Ring by Fashiolista
7. Enameled Owl Ring by Asos
   Owl Table Lamp by West Elm.
Want.:) ~Although I would prefer it in a creamy tone instead of white...

I hope you are all having a lovely week!

A Balancing Act

After having spent many years antagonizing each other, Alma, connoisseur extraordinaire of equilibrium, and Sebastian, virtuoso of stilt walking, finally realized they had much more in common than either one of them would have ever thought, and decided to join acts and hearts alike.

The Little Fox

“Men have forgotten this truth," said the fox.
"But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”
Antoine De Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince (1943)

I have one more piece to share with you (a companion of sorts to this painting), and then everything will be in the shop :)

Take Me Home

Amelia and this rather lonesome little raccoon met in the forest on a warm spring afternoon, and after having spent such a lovely time in the girl's company (during which she told him stories of garden parties filled with cupcakes, tea and meringues), the little creature insisted that she took him with her so that he could live in that same, sweet-filled world as her.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend :)

Elma and the Red Squirrel

All dressed-up in her pretty striped dress and the prettiest of purses, this little sweetie poses by the forest lake along her red furry friend, who is holding eagerly on his precious acorn.
I am so envious of her cherry-adorned little bag and cherry-red shoes!

The Curious Sailor

'So, we hear you want to sail the seven seas', said the ducks to Milo.
'Take heed, little boy, for adventures are always better experienced with a friend at your side'
And it was in this fashion that the three of them became inseparable.

Oscar And The Otter

After being in the Otter's presence for a while, Oscar soon realized that they were even more alike that he would have thought.
They were both inquisitive, playful and intelligent little things, although Oscar couldn't say he shared in the Otter's enjoyment in sliding around on the muddy bank!

As you can see, I have finally found what seems to me to be the perfect kind of frame to host my painted editorial. I just love its intricate details and I can't believe how warm and rich its golden tones are. I have been searching for the perfect golden colour for my frames for quite some time now, and I think I have finally found it :)

And after I have shared the narrative of each painting with you, they will make their way to the little shop!

A Painted Editorial

After having ooh-ed and aah-ed for quite some time over La Petite magazine, I was thrilled to be approached by them a while ago for a collaboration to be featured in their latest issue.

I have been working on this project behind-the-scenes, and now that the magazine's current issue is released, I am so excited to be able to share this painted-editorial-of-sorts with you!

I did one of their fashion spreads, which I imagined as diorama scenes from a rather whimsical natural history museum, and I must admit I had the loveliest of times working on this feature, especially since I got to style what each little cutie wears myself!

The original paintings in this series will be available soon, as I am still looking for the perfect frames for them to live in...
You can see my painted editorial here, and of course, the rest of this beautiful, bursting-with-sweetness publication!

A lovely weekend to you all,
