Freya Art

Ooh, you're going to love these, they're just gorgeous. 
I couldn't just pick a couple to post on here, they're all amazing...
They are from the etsy shop belonging to Freya Art.
Be sure to have a looksie in her shop, selling prints and cards, and Freya also has a website here


I just love love love...

I couldn't resist this gorgeous bunch when I walked on past the market the other day. 
Alongside Peonies and Hydrangeas, they've got to be my favourites. 
(and it also gave me the opportunity to play with my new iphone app, 'instagram')

(images above taken by little old amateur me!)

As much as I love my own little pics above, I'm no photographer! However, look at these lovely beauties...

They're all from the etsy shop, La Chaulafanita.  'A digital artist who uses photography to sensualise ideas full of colour and textures'
Now thats a photographer!
Arent they beautiful...

A place for twiggs...

Oh my...some beautifulness to be found on 'a place for twiggs'
I recently discovered this blog and it was love at first sight! 
Claudia lives in Lisbon and is 'a psychologist in love with photography'. She has an etsy shop where you can buy her lovely fine art photography prints and also features in the Poppytalk handmade market.
The colours and the lovely vintage look to her photographs are amazing, I just love them. 
My favourite has got to be 'Vintage Celebration', below.
