Friday Flava... rit

Hello, Tara's blog readers! I'm today's guest blogger, Bethany. As a subscriber of this blog myself, I have to say: it's fun to see everybody from this side of the podium.

It's Friday. If you're like me, that means you've eaten your oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar quicker than normal so you have time to check for a new "friday favourite" freesparrow post before the baby wakes up from her morning nap. You're eager to see what chic new shop is on Tara's radar, amiright?

Well, I hope I can help feed your sophisticated soul its weekly snack of soufflé au fromage for your eyes. But first, because in college I was known less for my knowledge of French pastries and more for my goofy attempts at gangsta speak, here is a video of 8-year-olds popping and locking:

Self-gratifying abuse of guest-blogging privileges over.

On to the pretty! I love decorative art, and own a sizeable collection of paintings - in my head. Below are some of my favorite, affordable pieces (some original, some prints) from my Etsy hearted items. Click on the images to be taken directly to their Etsy listings. But don't buy the originals unless you want to steal my dreams.

One last one, which I didn't include above partly because it wasn't submitting to my size restrictions, thereby throwing off the beautiful uniformity in the column of images above. Also, it's special because I kind of know the artist - we've traded our paintings a couple times, and that makes me a lucky, lucky girl.

Tara will be back from her trip soon. Let's pressure her for lots of photos, shall we?


  1. A few of my favorites here also Bethany. There are so many talented artists at etsy, I find something new, to adore, every day. Thank you for including my art print.

  2. I'm in love with Crown of Houses, Cold/Winter Girl, and The Pale Girl. These artists are amazing thanks for sharing :)
