My Very First "Featured Etsy Artist"!

I've never done a "Featured Artist" post before, but I couldn't help myself! I've fallen truly, madly, deeply (okay... not original, but soooo accurate) in love with the watercolors of Laura Trevey!

I intend to have a Laura Trevey watercolor (at LEAST one) in every room of my house. The colors lift me and speak of hope and possibilites. Overly dramatic? Nope... I don't think so. I think the effect of color on our lives is huge!

I put feet to my intentions this morning by buying my first 4 prints from Laura's Etsy shop. I live in Delaware, so summer here always includes mouthwatering Blue Crabs from the Chesapeake Bay, steamed in Old Bay seasoning (or garlic maybe?) and served with hot melted butter. (If you've never eaten Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs, then a trip to the East Coast is in order!)

Sooooo... I had to buy the print of the blue crab...

The beach chairs bring back warm, childhood memories of summers at the shore. And besides... the Blue Crab needed a beachy buddy! So... I had to get the chairs too, right???

I have JUST the spot for these beautiful blue beach prints. I can hardly wait for them to come. I can see them on my walls already!

What color does a Blue Crab turn when you cook it??? (Did I hear you say "red"??)

Another crab - another room. This time red RED RED!

And then... I just couldn't pass this one up - Autumn - so pretty...

Laura is having a Shopping Spree Giveaway!

Count me in! I would LOVE to own anything painted by Laura! I know exactly how I'd like to spend my $50!!!

Thanks, Laura!!!
