Arty Arrivals

The mail lady is my personal Santa this week as my recent Etsy art print purchases begin to arrive.

Here's a peek (chosen for their bright colours and powers of distraction, as discussed earlier).

Now, I love me a motivational slogan. They can focus, inspire or just make you smile. I'd love to hang this up on our wall, but now that the 6 year old is learning to read I can't get away with it.


So I found something a little more PC at Gus + Lula.

It's good to remember how lucky we really are. Find it here

My Cup Runneth Over was the last print bought, but the first one to be received. How is that possible? you ask, nervously eyeing the space time continuum.

It's a digital print! You buy it, choose your colour and size ratio and within 24hrs it's in your inbox ready to print at home. If you have a decent printer it's a great way to fill walls with extremely well-priced art.

This next one is small (only 2.5 by 3.5 inches) but packs a punch. It's called The Blue Cat, and it's an original (!) by Teconlene.

I love buying from Etsy as their sellers often go the extra mile. Look at the personal touches on the envelope it came in:

Kitty4
Do Not Bend, European style.

Kitty5
Hand drawn kitty cuteness.

Kitty6
Open it up.

Kitty8
Tweety-pie cuteness.

Now lots of Etsy sellers will pop a business card in their package, but look at this:

Kitty7
Cute little tea-bag.

Kitty2
Could it get any better?

Like Picasso said: "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life". Amen, Pablo.

  1. Another one from etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/pocketcarnival . Her drawings are just so cute. And, like most etsy sellers, goes that little extra mile too. I just bought a card from her and it was all packaged just so sweetly! Love your selections.

  3. Hi Kristy, Just wanted to say I recently (like yesterday) discovered your blog and just LOVE it. I am a fellow Aussie, so I get the humour, but live in Aus, I just can't believe how beautiful your local area is.

  4. Welcome Brenda. You can't knock Australia, but I do admit it's pretty fab here!

  5. Love the creative way your order was presented - I would buy it for the packaging alone:) Thanks for the links to some great etsy art.
