One of my favorite Etsy sellers is Dimdi. She makes the sweetest watercolor paintings of animals, and they’re wonderfully affordable! Her 8×10 prints are just $25. She also does custom pet portraits based on a photo you send her, and I can speak to the quality of those because we’ve had both of our cats done. Yes, we are those people. I’ll show them to y’all sometime if you’re super nice to me :)
I also more recently discovered another watercolor animal artist, Eastwitching. Between Alison and Irene, you’ll have access to all the adorable animal paintings your walls could ever want. Here’s a small sampling:
All of the watermarked paintings are from Alison, and the others are all from Irene.
I love these paintings for a nursery or child’s room, but they’re also perfect mixed in with other pieces in a more adult space. Here are two of Eastwitching’s flamingos in a cheerful breakfast nook:
A series of birds would be perfect in a living room, and I love some of the sea creatures for a bathroom! What do you think?

Love, love, love these newly released Edward Hopper stamps. Will definitely be using them for our save the dates — perfect for an ocean-side wedding! AND they’re Forever stamps!

Came across this nifty little piece of art in my searches the other day. I’ve been looking for something to go over my bed, and this might be just the thing! The only downside? It’s priced at $300 at Marmalade, which is a bit out of my budget (expensive or not, they have a few other neat options, too!).
Happily, I think this might be a doable DIY — I’d just need a thick, smooth piece of wood (this one is 36 inches by 36 inches), some cream paint, some black paint, and a stencil set. I’ll let you know if I make an attempt!

I’m loving these teensy paintings I discovered on Etsy last week! They’re very reasonable at about $26 – $44 a piece, depending on the size. I’m particularly smitten with the “Library Ladies” print — I’d love to lean it up against a few books on my bedside table!
Check them all out at the Janet Hill Studio Etsy store!

Since today is the celebration of Washington’s birthday, I thought I’d post an Etsy find that strikes me as a bit patriotic. Aren’t these custom-embroidered maps adorable? Since she’ll stitch a heart around two separate cities, I think they’d be particularly perfect for a long-distance couple…
Find them at the Vintage Refashioned shop!
