Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Currently I'm in Michigan relaxing with family but before I left Aradan and I did our gift exchange and I was a very lucky lady this year because I am now in possession of a tiny original drawing by Evan B. Harris!! It's framed in a specimen case which is (completely accidentally) appropriate because Aradan has given me butterfly collections for my last two birthdays. Also pictured my new Classy brass pencil case.

Stay tuned for my end of the year book list!


  1. I've been following your blog faithfully for quite some time. But I don't think I e-ver posted a comment. My birthday is on Christmas day -today- so I was TWICE the lucky lady! This rush of materialistic excitement made me so happy I just had to share all the fun. AND tell you that I love love love your blog and everything you do. I too am a sucker for everything that's (or looks) old and cozy... :)

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Gorgeous pictures and I love your new pencil case, very posh indeed! :)

  3. Your miniature ship & butterfly drawing is absolutely beautiful. What a lovely gift.

  4. You have such amazing artwork! Maybe you could make someday a video while you're painting? I would LOVE to see you at work!!
