These beautiful vintage maritime art prints are so incredible. The details are amazing. I’m pretty gobsmacked by how awesome they are really.
What do you think?
Are you feeling inspired? After kicking this brutal chest yuckiness and mourning the loss of my Nanna I’m finally feeling a little happier (what a month!).
These prints from May and Belle are just what I need to get into the super positive zone.
Hi everyone. I have been feeling a little ho-hum lately. I’ve been a little sick, a little sore, a little sad – you know, just a little down in the dumps. So I jumped on the internet to find some bright and beautiful things to cheer me the heck up.
If you’re a little down I hope they do the same for you.
1. Sky – The Wheatfield by Katie Daisy.
2. Cheerful 5×7 – Karen Fields Gallery.
3. Cat Eats Chicken – Claire Voyant Crush.
4. Autumn – Larry Carlson Studio.
5. Origami Valentine – Paper Altar.
6. Hello Sunshine postcard – Studio Froezel.
This is probably the best thing I’ve found on the Internet for a while. Thank you Meet Me In Shermer.
I was browsing through the site of an amazing artist –Elsa Mora today. I read her bio and discovered she came from less than ideal beginnings. I absolutely love the way she described her determination to create a better life for herself. She did it by using her imagination.
“I was able to imagine a better destiny. I made it happen, day after day, inside my head. I wrote that imagined world down in diaries, I drew it, I painted it, I modeled it in clay and plasticine, I sang it out loud in the bathroom, I day dreamed about it. That imaginary reality became my project, my experiment, my secret love, the only one thing that I could count on because it was all up to me. Everything else failed me but not my imagination.”
Thank you Elsa, for sharing your work with the world.
How was your day? Mine was a little ho-hum. I don’t really like ho-hum days but I know that we must endure them. After all they make excellent days seem that much more excellent.
If you’re having a ho hum day perhaps this awesomeness from Confetti System will turn your frown upside down.
I’m really surprised that I’ve never featured the work of Emily McDowell on the blog before. Emily creates beautiful hand-lettered and illustrated prints and cards – many of which are emblazoned with self-esteem-boosting, pep talk hollering motivational quotes. They are all so lovely but these are my favourites.
