Fab Finds #10 - Dream Sweetly

Hi there,
today it's cold, I'm tired, it's monday.... and I was feeling rather "blah' but I was just given a huge lift thanks to coming across a posting on facebook, about a painting given as a gift...
Dream Sweetly Acrylics on canvas

78 x 60 inch

So, NOW I am inspired by one the most wonderful paintings I have ever seen!
It was painted by Tinniegirl (aka Cathy Kirwan) as a surprise birthday gift for her friend Curlypops (aka Cam).
Thus my latest 'fab finds' from Etsy are in the spirit of this painting, be it reminiscent of the lovely name, the happy /hot colours or the fabulous abstract floral theme...

Coral Dreams corsage brooch by Vivid Spirit
I'm now off to collect Mr.6 from school, and on my
return, I'm really hoping to set the boys up with a
 crafty (yes, pun absolutely intended! teehee!)
 creative activity, as I am feeling
in the mood to make some more of these.

{ie. my Graffiti Flowers, embellishments made from
found papers, such as security envelopes, junk mail, and pages from
old forlorn vintage kids books! You can find
them in my shop here.}

Finally, let's just take a look at another of Cathy's 
wonderful paintings...

Ohh, how I wish she were MY best friend and I too had such a painting gracing MY wall!! :0}

  1. Wow.... all my favourite colours and things together in one blog post. That's my favourite type of bloggy eye candy!
    I'm still pinching myself about how lucky I am to have that beautiful painting in my house!

  2. Thanks so much for your lovely words Sally. I'm really touched.

    I named the bottom painting 'Abundance' and kept it as a gift for myself. It's hanging on my lounge room wall.

    I love your gorgeous graffiti flowers. They'd made a lovely garland for my studio. I'm about to move house soon so will wait till I'm settled and order some from you.

  3. 'ABUNDANCE' suits the painting perfectly Cathy!
    Hi kind of you to compliment me!

    Looking forward to seeing more of your gorgeous work,
    Sally x
