Aren't these framed cut-paper works just stunning? Artist Molly Jey creates fabulous three-dimensional works of art. They're close to the top of my price range for art...but they're just so gorgeous I can excuse it...just this once. :-)
I fell in love with this dogwood garland immediately. The flowers are paper mache! In fact, so is the standing poppy. I can picture this garland above my daughter's bed...or strung in front of my fireplace mantel to celebrate spring...or at a wedding shower...or...or...I could go on and on. By Middleburg Folk Art Studio. (They offer many different flower garlands as well...roses...poppies...you name it.)
What a fun bag! Celebrate your favorite coffee shop in a funky way - or give as a gift to a coffee-loving friend. A few years back I was at a garage sale and the gal was selling bags like this. Now, I see that this Etsy seller, Sweet Purses, is from my own town. I bet I met her back then! Small world!
peacock feather cut paper notecard
This lamp caught my eye several weeks ago and I was just waiting for the right time to post about it. Artist Intertwingle has several different designs of this beautiful cut-paper lamp. I included their peacock feather card too because it's just yummy.
"Fabulous Fonts - coasters"
My husband calls me a "font geek" because I get ridiculously excited about cool fonts. Put them on decorative objects for the home...and you can imagine how I can cause a scene in my excitement. :-) I love this font and coaster set covered in "fabulous fonts"...I also love the box and Bohemian star decoupaged with decorative papers. Fun decor! By Carolina Cottage.
