Art for Art's Sake



I just bought these two lovely pieces from Matou en Peluche and I am so excited to get them! I work at a frame shop, too, so when they come I'm framing them up real nice. I've been wanting them for months now so I know that they will make me happy every time I look at them.

As I mentioned previously, I'm moving into a new apartment at the end of the month. The fun part? Buying new stuff! If I get the apartment my roommate and I are aiming for I'll have a lot more room for cute decor. So, friends, tell me: What are your favourite artists on Etsy? I'm mostly leaning towards illustration, but photography, screenprints, collage and shadowboxes are welcome, too. Suggest away!

i have a number of little works by sagittarius gallery

I was on a kick for a while where i'd make some sales & then buy one of the little paintings.

Oh my goodness--the cat and the birds! Love it.

I've become infatuated with catwalk lately. And a local (to me) favorite: Studiobeerhorst.
