You too??

After being published in the summer issue of Somerset Life, I decided to take time this summer and visit other folks featured in the issue at their blogs, especially ones that were new to me.  I'm still working my way through the issue, and finding new discoveries to delight in. 
Recently I visited Heather at Audrey Eclectic, whose terrific 'Blogs with a View' article is found right after mine.  She is a talented painter of beautiful folk art filled with nostalgia of bygone days.  I love her humor, talent and fondness for the past.  It all shows in her romantic artwork, drawing out a wistful smile. 

I was the fortunate recipient of these lovely postcards of her work, after winning them in a giveaway on her blog:


I'll be using these postcards in my Christmas decor:

Turns out Heather and I have things in common - an appreciation for Scandinavian style, love of Jane Austen & mystery books, habit of hoarding old magazines, and most importantly, daughters with the same name and age!  It's fun to 'meet' someone so nice in blogland and have a 'you, too??' exchange. 

Make sure you visit Heather and see her new listings of Jane Austen inspired postcards.  Sigh...

 I'm so appreciative of opportunities to find folks like Heather and share common experiences across the miles.  Thank you Heather!

Susan,
Aw thank you for such sweet words! I am so happy we found eachother across the miles, both of us with our little Audreys and love of Swedish Christmas and old timey things. I love meeting a kindred spirit, and I'm so glad you like the postcards!

I ADORE Heather's work, and she's a pretty neat girl in person. Darling family. I have several of her prints and one original, a commissioned piece from my best friend. It is honestly the best gift I've ever received. I'm glad I clicked on this blog, too, Heather from your FB post! Love this style!
