Marie Amos's Fun Summertime Art

I want to share with you two wonderful art prints Marie sent to me:


Aren't they great!  They remind me of all the summers we spent riding beach bikes in Seaside, Florida.

Marie is such a wonderful artist!  Her art has a certain "Je ne sais quoi" that I adore.  I like her fairy art;  they are neat, too!  Please visit Marie at her blog, Fourborne Art,  here.

My daughter, Shanley, wants to take both of them to school with her this fall, but I told her she could only have one (she wants to put one in her bedroom and one in the living room of her dorm suite).   I ordered a couple of frames for them, and one was backordered.  Mr. Art@Home made one of the frames for me.  {He is such a rock star.}


This is the frame Mr. Art@Home made.  I like the yellow and green on it because it compliments the daisies.


Don't forget to visit Marie!

I am joining Nita @ Mod Vintage Life for her new linky party, Mod Mix Monday.


Until next time...

Darling! Reminds me of summer bike rides with my cousins when we were kids. Oh the summers back then with all of us together roaming the countryside. How lucky I was to have that. Love these prints. I will go check out Marie's other works.

I tried FOREVER to post a comment to you on blogger and had no success. Is anyone else having trouble with this?

Have a great day!! ~Crystal

I love that picture, it is amazing that just a snapshot can tell a whole story and evoke emotions. Well done on the frame to the mister!

So you were a Zonie huh? The funny thing is I don't even know if that word has a different connotation other than it's short for Arizona...I hope that's all what it means.
