NEW Ornaments at my Happy Shoppe on Etsy!

It’s already November (I can’t believe it) and I’m busy painting as fast as I can to get more little ornaments available at my Happy Shoppe on Etsy!  I just wrapped up a big group of custom orders and I’m now starting to add to my in-store offerings.

Blond “I Love Barre” ornaments continue to be a BIG seller and I’ve just uploaded three new little towheads to my shoppe, followed by much needed Elphabas (The Wicked Collection)!  And then of course there are my new ‘Women’s March‘ little ladies who are getting a lot of attention.  Stay tuned and keep checking in to the Happy Shoppe for more!

As always – if you see something that you love make sure to grab it quick!  All my little ornaments are handmade by me and one of a kind!

Color Palette:  Hydrangea Dream

Color Palette: Hydrangea Dream

Some color combinations simply stop me in my tracks.  This is one of them.

This gorgeous bunch of hydrangeas adorned my home for a couple of weeks.  I fell in love with watching their colors transform, shift and fade as the days passed.  I watched as bright chartreuse and fuchsia purples and pinks shifted into burnt plum, raspberry dark chocolate, and pine green, and at no point in this journey did the flowers’ beauty ever cease to charm me. On my bouquet’s final days the arrangement looked regal and wise, elegant and aged.  Such a lovely lesson to witness in full glory.  

Wishing you a glorious and beautiful week

Goldfinches

Goldfinches

I absolutely love these sunshine-y and cheerful little birds!  They flood our backyard every Spring when the acacia bushes behind our house are blooming.  I put thistle out for them to eat and on a good day there can be up to 20 fighting for space on the feeder.  One day after watching them have a morning feeding frenzy I created these base images.  Unfortunately I got busy with other work and my momentum on figuring out the overall design layout for these birds halted.  I decided to revisit them this morning.  We’ll see what comes of them.  I’ll keep you posted!   :0)

Drought Resistant Color Palette

You know when you walk by something and it just jumps out at you?  This amazing succulent planter was a gift from a friend and hangs in a pretty prominent place in my back yard.  It’s always been gorgeous but something happened this pas week and the colors just BURST suddenly so of course that meant I had to take a bunch of pictures.
