Yep, you heard me right. I wanna wear it!
The picture you see here is actually a canvas painting, but when I went into today's shop for the first time, my first instinct and urge was that I wanted to -wear- this piece.
I mean... it's just gorgeous! It would look spectacular wrapped up in my hair or curled at my hips in a drape or skirt. Or as a bandeau shirt curled lovingly around my torso.
Not to mention that the necklace pictured below from the exact same shop would fit perfect with the outfit I've built in my mind around this painting.
I mean, talk about being inspiring!
I really, really like this design and I can guarantee that if it was made in a large scarf or a piece of fabric that I'd have snatched it up without a second thought.
The shop that houses both of these beautiful items is "As You Like It" on Etsy by DiCarlos.
Stephanie, the talented artist behind these pieces, is filled with creative juices that she stirs vigorously into a number of different artistic venues. These include paintings and jewelry, as seen here on this blog, as well as a variety of wonderful cards and prints.
As a school teacher in northern Massachusetts, I can't imagine how she has time to make such beautiful pieces but she has not one shop, but TWO!
As You Like It by DiCarlos is filled with colorful jewelry, amazing prints and paintings.
Stephanie's other shop, Unexpected Knock (the name is inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickensen) has an entirely different flavor with a slightly more formal feel with a collection of clean, crisp designed poetry-inspired cards and artwork.
Both shops are relatively new, one opening in April of this year and the other in June, but you won't be disappointed by what you find there so be sure to stop by and visit!
YOU CAN CLICK ON THE PICTURES ABOVE TO VISIT "AS YOU LIKE IT" ON ETSY AND TAKE A LOOK AROUND OR, IF YOU PREFER, CLICK RIGHT HERE. I ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO STOP BY THE "UNEXPECTED KNOCK" ON ETSY AS WELL!
