I spy.....ThumbelinaPaint

This week I spy ThumbelinaPaint, the etsy store by mixed media artist Maria Pace-Wynters.

This is the very first painting that caught my attention in this beautiful treasury currated by StellaCreations.

Now I'm hooked!

There are 39 of these exquisite works of art in the shop.

All as captivating as the first.

All of them in Maria's characteristic bold colours and dream-like atmosphere.

And a blog to follow too: Maria Pace-Wynters.

And a give-away I was actualy tempted to keep to myself......

And the winner is......LaBoom!

  Actualy, the winner is yours truly.
This is the sweet little package that arrived at my doorstep the other day:

A bit beaten and battered by it's journey, but ever so pretty -and eco-friendly.
And it gets better!
This is what was inside:

The cutest little deer brooch imaginable -won from LaBoom's give-away over at moonface blog.

Tickle Me Tuesdays! The Favourite Selection

While getting this Tickle Me post ready today, I realized that all my choices this week are from etsy shop favourites-both old and new.
So, here are some of the items that have grabbed my attention and fueled my imagination this week:

 This is one of my favourite paper goods shops and this is definately one greeting card I'd love to get.

This picture gets me dreaming....

I just adore the flowers and the photography in this shop.

Yes, another long-time favourite. The pendants in this shop are all so very beautiful, but this moody blue scene is my latest flavour of the month.
