Monday Love: Art & Flowers

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.
Wayne Dyer

Cheers to a happy new week lovelies! My garden is full of little blue "forgetmenots" at the moment and i found they make lovely "mini-bouquets" in tiny vases - some girly way to get more fun out of the little things! In the background you see one of my new collage- painttngs, featuring raspberries (yum!) and pretty bits of vintag paper, handcolored by another great artist: my grandmother!  Yes to abundance lovelies, i wish you plenty of it in the days to come!

  1. Those little pretty blue "forgetmenots" are so full of happiness and cheer, Martina! And I love those paintings in the background, the collage of raspberries are cool and the handcolored vintage paper evokes such a wonderful nostalgia, everything on the table looks highly creative and artistic to me! Love them all!

    Wish you a very happy week ahead! :)
