A Favorite Artist!

My order from Lisa Kaus came yesterday!! If you haven't yet visited her website listed in the Lovely Places to Shop over there on the left then you're simply missing out. I absolutely adore Lisa's work!! It's charming and whimsical and fun and colorful....and just plain fabulous!! I don't know if you can see it in my photo but the artwork is actually presented a skosh atop the card surface giving it dimension. The card is a perfect gift in itself!! Totally suitable for framing...and each card is signed!! Can you tell how over the moon I am about Lisa's work?!! Now look closer at the piece with the wire hanger. I think she's calling those her Mini's. Love, love, love 'em! Need more!! The problem's so hard to pick favorites when I adore them all!!

My next photo shows the way I've chosen to display Lisa's Mini. Did you really think I would just hang it on the wall for goodness sakes? If you answered yes to that question, you haven't known me for long, have you? Ha! I collect French children's mannequins. Bizarre behavior, I know. Me, collecting things. (giggle, wink!) I've chosen to hang Lisa's Mini around the neck of one of my mannequins! It looks lovely...and really showcases Lisa's art. The deep rosey pinks and blue greens really catch my eye. I think this may be the color palette I use for my new studio!! Lisa, if you're reading this, you are a true inspiration!! And yes, we should go antiquing sometime!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
