Happy Valentine's Day!

"A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
 A song is no song 'til you sing it,
 And love in your heart
 Wasn't put there to stay -
 Love isn't love
 'Til you give it away."
                   ~Oscar Hammerstein

    Happy Valentine's Day!!! I hope everyone remembers to express their love in some way today to the people who mean the most to them! I want to say a big thankyou to everyone who commented on the opening of my new etsy shop! Your encouragement and wishes mean the world to me! I have added five more new prints to the shop and will be adding more in the next couple weeks. Today I have appropriately Valentine-y photos for you - including a little valentine I made my Mum, the beautiful heart chocolates she gave to me, and a drawing of a sassy Valentine girl. Enjoy!!

  4. Hi Jennelise, just stopping by to wish you a vey happy Valentines Day,
    Love your beautiful rose china...
    The heart your mom made for you is simply gorgeous...
    Love your new drawings just beautiful....


    1. Jennelise what is that luscious white and pink rose? is that a silk ribbon? I NEED THAT! I don't want it I need it LOL to wear in my hair. And I love the print of the girl with the huge eyes and big hair with beads. I'm working on getting big hair like that and wearing flowers, feathers, beads and ribbons in my hair. I feel it coming on, I will need one of your prints soon. blessings, Lady of the Woods

    2. Haha! I know it's gorgeous! It's from a site called Meadowstreet - they are hand made with silk ribbon and then hand painted I believe. Here is the link http://www.meadowstreet.com/. I have quite a few of them so they end up in my photos a lot :) Talk to you later!

  5. I'm so happy you opened the etsy shop, you are just so talented!

    Happy Valentines :)
