pinecone habitat

two recent paintings - one headed to a miniature art extravaganza in seattle, and the other listed today in my etsy shop. this blog has been so neglected! i've been doing quite a lot of painting in preparation for the holidays and oh chalet has most certainly taken a back seat. i'll be posting something this week, however. stay tuned! have a good night!

oh my ampersand!

it has been ages since i last posted about one specific artist or shop, but i've been thinking about doing a post about ohmyampersand for a while. first, because i think cheryl's wood pendants and brooches are gorgeous, but also because she seems so nice! each one of her pieces of wooden jewelry are made from either scrap or found wood. she also does collage, and prints & cards inspired by nature - really lovely things. just click on each photo to take you to a description of the item, and you can check out her etsy shop here. i am off to vermont for an end of summer mini vacation - have a great holiday weekend!
