cottages to castles

A cottage to use as an Artist Studio, a game room, a party room or a Library.
The above cottage belongs to this woman of style.

This is the home of Topsy Turvy Style. I was expecting a bit of chaos as the name implies but I have looked closely while illustrating this idyllic spot. This is the home, one of a "twin" home designed by Architect, Dwight Baum. As they say we all have a "twin" somewhere.

Lana posted about pve design and my love for illustrating life on paper ranging from homes, shoppes to pets, parties to basically whatever your heart desires. When she posted her very own home, I took it as a sign to capture this special spot for her. Thank you for posting about me. I am so grateful for all of the support and motivation from the blogging community.

Oh how I would love to live in a cottage- romantic and magical. Reminds me of Snow White (the post from Seleta's blog has got me thinking about fairytales!!!)... :)

I just discovered your bog and these sketches are simply magical!!! These are wonderful. What fun if these were made into cards so that the homeowner had a personal stationary.

You have an amazing blog.

Jojo is right -- these are so very magical! Your drawings always make me smile and these two homes are beyond lovely.

These are so pretty. There is nothing more beautiful to me than a quaint sweet cottage. I hope to have one someday! And as always your illustrations bring such a dreaminess to life! Love it.
PS- you mentioned someone doing a post on chalkboard paint at a Brooklyn Limestone..who was it or where might I be able to find it? Thanks!

I know, me too, I really would love a little art studio cottage...
take a look on my blog roll and click on
Brooklyn Limestone and scroll down, she posted it a few weeks ago, her kitchen pantry door with the magnetic paint.
Happy Painting!
