making it extra lovely

photo - before
Illustration - after!
Designer extraordinaire from "Pink loves brown" and keeper of the flame at 
making it lovely recently sent me a photo of her home cute home and I was thrilled that she posted my little work.  
As the saying goes, "birds of a feather flock together" and I fly over to Nicole's lovely little nest to see the latest before and after of her home, or a fun and clever design that she has just managed to whip up effortlessly.  I guess when passion is your motivator to design and surround yourself by making it lovely, all the rest follows suit.  After all, creating an artful life is what we all are striving for.  Nicole is what dreams are made of!

What a lovely home. Some day we will live in a lovely old cottage (or at least a lovely old farmhouse.) :)
I'm so glad you stopped by and enjoyed the post. I don't think I can call myself an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I can hope for my girls. :)

oh fairlightday, now you are a true artist, your photos and words are straight from the heart and that is really all an artist hopes to convey - in whatever medium that fancies or yarn that tells a story.
your photos are lovely and you are lit from within!

Your illustration of Nicole's house is lovely! Your illustrations are beautiful and so whimsical.

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog last week and for your kind words.

I love the way you have designed this illustration with the polka dots. Your work does this cute home justice.
