share the love!!!

today's post is all about showing and sharing the love i have for some of my favorite bloggie friends and etsy sellers!! let's get started!!


this sweetheart came to me all the way round the world from australia!! handmade by the lovely elizabeth, aqua girl as she called her now sits on a shelf in my art room where she happily smiles and watches me create, collage and paint!. i've renamed her cecily. you can visit elizabeth's blog here and her etsy shop here!




adorable . . . miniature . . . irresistible! felted bowls from the very talented lindsey! visit her blog here and her etsy shop here.


here you can see all the sassy cuteness of this wonderful bracelet. i wish you could also hear the sweet tinkling it makes as i move! i received this in a trade with gina! love it! visit gina's etsy shop here and her blog here.






wall of creativity love! to hang all the prints i've purchased i took some thin wire and strung it from push pin to push pin on the wall above the area where i paint and collage. i used tiny wooden clothes pins to clip the art to the wire. voila! i have wonderful inspiration and color in my art room! the artists featured on my wall are kelly rae, mystele, martha, julie, flor, jennifer, and debbie. i'm going to continue the wire on around the room as i continue my creativity love!!

thanks to each of you for making it inspirational, fun and real!!!

It is so much fun to see how other's display their art, especially in the studio. Love the wire idea, perfect for the unframed stuff.

I really like the prints hanging from the wire in your art room. I have been trying to decide how to display my inspiration art as well. I don't have wall space near my work area, so I'm haven't come up with a good idea yet.

Etsy is the perfect affordable place to get a variety of wonderful artwork.

This is fabulous! And I love the colour of your walls Julie. It is almost the exact colour of the ceiling in our sun room ~ the room where I create some of my work. Love, love the aqua doll. I'm off to check out more of those.

Ciao bella,
