wildflowers, wool and calico…favorite things and places

Mmmm…collected these yesterday, favorite things:

I want to thank the ever-inspiring Casey of Casey Brown Designs for her sweet mention of me as one of her blog favorites! Her blog is full of pretty vintage ideas, finds and favorite things. So in return I’ll pick some of my favorite artists places to visit that I’m not linked to, for a fun surprise…

1. Persisting Stars is stellar! I discovered Maddie’s blog through her photography on Etsy, Courage My Love. Her images are moving, and her blog is full of inspiring words and beautiful musings, I just love to read it as well as gaze at her images.

2. I absolutely love the paintings of Rebecca (I could stare at them forever the imagery is so detailed!) and her diary, Apple Crunch features her new work and snippets of her life in photos.

3. I like to visit Elsita’s Blog as she updates regularly with lots of new things. My favorite thing is her papercuts as they are delicate with outstanding imagery.

4. I have long checked out Rosey Little Things. Alicia is brimming with creative energy (and frequent updates) around her home and in her sewing, knitting, baking…(the list goes on). It makes for inspired nest-feathing!

5. Discovered the work of Camilla Engman on her Flickr some time ago and I have been in awe ever since! Her paintings, drawings and collages are some of my favorites.

Its a beautiful day to be inspired, summer is in its prime. Have a good day!
