Oh My Cavalier!

I've never been quiet about my praise for Julianna Swaney's wonderful work, so I thought I might let you all know that there have been some extraordinary things pouring into her Etsy shop of late. As usual, it's dreamy, whimsical, magical...you get the picture.

If I could, I'd splurge on this set of three marvelous etchings, imbued with a sense of the macabre by their juxtapositioning of 18th century ladies decked out in all their finery with giant creepie crawlies. It's like Marie Antoinette meets Them!



For those with a more realistic budget, this bird girl with ruff print is wonderful. I love the richness of the deep orange paper, and the striking contrast between the background, the delicate line drawing and the white ruff.



Plus she's got loads of new holiday-themed goodies. My favorites of the bunch are these darling mouse gift tags. There is nothing like receiving a gift which is totally handmade, inside and out.
