Between the Bull Rushes - Love at First Sight

As we've discussed, I try not to spend too much time under the "Buy" tab on Etsy - too dangerous. But, on occasion, I do venture out into the Etsy-verse to check out illustrations. We all know I'm a sucker for images of little girls ("Oh, REALLY?" you're thinking, "I totally didn't notice that EVERY SINGLE ONE of your features includes a photo or illustration of a small female child." I know, I know - I should branch out.), but Primped Paperie's imagery gave me that special warm feeling inside that only comes along when I find something truly special (see also my Audrey post).

I love the colors in "Between the Bull Rushes." Isn't she fabulous? From Primped Paperie's bio: "I find inspiration in so many things, If my work makes you giggle, cry, or hug your post man for no apparent reason, then my job is complete!"

You know, I do feel like hugging someone! The mail doesn't come til later - do you thing the trash collector would be open to getting cozy?

Perhaps we are kindred spirits because we both had Holly Hobbie lunchboxes as kids, but Primped Paperie's shop is filled with imagery that gets me right in the gut. "A Chance Encounter" is another of my faves. She's just beautiful. See lots more at Primped Paperie's shop and blog.

Great find! Her work is way above the current "spooky-big-eyed kid" trend.
