A Gathering

I took so much sparkley, fun, giddy pleasure in putting this gathering of framed works together on Mary Anna's nursery wall. I have been looking at the blank wall, as in, a wall with absolutely nothing on it, not a thing, don't even think about it, nothing, since about June 9th. That was when I started parking my fanny in the rocker and nursing a two day old... facing that wall. A million and ten times a day. I have had a lot of time to think about that wall and what should go on it. In fact I perhaps have done that very thing more than I have done anything since June 9th with exception to possibly nursing. Let's call it a tie. Because Miss Mary Anna Louisa (Bouisa)'s room was built into the studio I have dubbed her room to be quite art-y and have filled it with lots of handwork, and the like. I will take more pictures of the whole room soon. But The Wall. Sure, I have embroideries. Sure, I have quilts. Yeh, got needlepoints. I wanted to have something framed too. My sister and I went through a huge pile of vintage handkerchiefs that belonged to my Great Grandmother earlier in the Spring. Holy Smokes, they are beautiful.  Most are about 100 years old. Perfect in frames. In smaller frames, some are folded down to show just a small corner.  A few are shown fully. Above is my favorite. Oh it's beautiful! But finally I created the first edition of my own prints. Which mix in so very well. I just adore the wall now, so very much.

So that is a long winded way to let you know that my first limited edition print collection is now for sale in the online shop! This is a *pre-sale and we'll begin shipping them out in about 3 weeks. So sit tight. And dream beautiful wall dreams while you wait.
xoxo, Anna

  1. You do have a lot of time on your hands while you're nursing, so at least you found something productive :). The prints are beautiful, and I just love the bold colors!

  2. I just can't get used to you North Americans and the use of the word fanny! You made me choke on my tea there!

    1. Yep...me too! It's a bit like the phrase "rooting for someone".....TOTALLY different meaning in Australia!

  4. The wall looks beautiful with all the framed loveliness, and the paint colour is gorgeous too. Which one did you use?

    [ps - the fanny bit made me laugh / choke too. I do love that even though things are so international with the internet there are still quirky regional words and differences to make us smile]

  5. I couldn't order the poppy print fast enough and can hardly wait for it to brighten my office every day with its charm and loveliness. Thank you for making my day!

  6. Love the idea of the hankys.
    My Mum passed away in July and we now have her mountains of hankys, some of which belonged to her mother.
    Framing them is a great way to have them (and a little bit of her) in our everyday. Thanks.

  9. I used to be a custom picture framer in Nashville, oh ages ago, and your wall makes me remember that time of life. From helping with the framing design, to cutting all the elements, to installation it was such a satisfying job to assist in artistic endeavors.
    Am loving the limited prints and thinking how lovely they would be in our master suite.

    The wall is beautiful--full of color and joy, and the hankie idea is a wonderful idea, too (has given me the thought that it might work some vintage napkins I have). But the blanket on the bed is what caught my attention most--it's gorgeous! Truly beautiful!

  18. That wall and those frames make me speechless. The one of the colorful butterflies in a vertical line is sooo beautiful. I'd love to frame your #3 sample print. You are so talented.
