Two years ago I featured the gorgeous animal art of the super talented illustrator Ashley Percival. His animal illustrations have a kind of laid back, magical quality that would work so well in a nursery or kid’s room (or grown-ups room too – I’m a big fan of this one!).
I was so happy that Ashley got in touch last week to let me know that he had a bunch of limited edition prints available on his Etsy store. They are, of course, so lovely and would make a great inclusion in anyone’s art collection. Oh and they are perfect Christmas pressies too. Want to win one? Keep reading!
This one has been exhibited on the London Tube!
Owl of the Night.
Christmas cards too!
Ashley has also designed a range of Christmas cards featuring his animals that will be sold online and off (the range will be hitting Paperchase very soon).
Win! Win! Win!
Ashley has graciously offered to send 4 limited edition prints (of your choice) to one of you very lucky readers! There are a few ways to enter so get cracking! (Ashley will send the prints anywhere in the world too. Thanks Ashley!)

You’re never to old to play with dolls, especially when they are as pretty as these ones from Wool and Water. They are designed and created by Amy Earles and I think they are the sweetest things I’ve seen all week.
Oh and they are fully posable too so you can frame them and change their positions when the desire arises.

We went for a drive into the hills over the weekend and saw the gorgeous tulips at Araluen Botanical Park. Spring is everywhere, all around us, at the moment. From the new shoots on our grape vine to the warm easterly breeze that carries the smell of the bush into my office window. It’s my favourite season.
I thought these prints by Beloved & Co summed up our little weekend escape.

I’m an animal lover and I have a very special place in my heart (and home) for kitties which is why I just love these illustrations from Matou En Peluche. Are you a cat person too?
1. Didier and Leon.
2. Polly and her kitten.

Stunning, stunning, stunning work from my new favourite artist Cathy McMurray. The colours and imagery are so beautiful – they make me want to visit Oregon more than I already do (and that is A LOT!)
I was stoked to see some of the new bits of loveliness from Quill & Fox on Pinterest yesterday. Beautiful colours. Beautiful illustrations (as always). They are in stock so get yours at the Quill & Fox shop pronto.
