Photomontages, Digital Collages and Painted Photography by Lyse

ImagineStudio on EtsyToday I'd like to introduce you to a shop that's filled with fantasy, whimsy and, most of all, beautiful images. Tons and tons of beautiful images filled with mystery and imagination.

ImagineStudio on Etsy is a shop that offers much more than just regular photography.

This shop is filled with Fine Art Giclee prints of a variety of photomontages, digital collages and painted photographs all from the mind of an amazing artist from Montreal, Quebec in Canada.

The artist, Lyse, is full of love and emotion and expresses both through her work, communicating her romantic nature and her emotions into each piece that is then, when finished, offered in her shop.

Lyse has a variety of art to offer as well, from landscapes (like the one above that I fell in love with) to portraits, nudes and print sets as well as a wonderful collection of flights of fancy and other works.

The artwork is fascinating and you'll love a browse through what I consider to be her gallery. You're sure to find many that you just have to click on to get a better look at and many that will take your breath away as well.

Funky and Fun Hats and More - A Rare Post by Leal

Cyndesplace on EtsyWhile I was in the airport the other day on my way to visit family, I saw a girl wearing a knit hat that looked like a giraffe's head. Now, I have to admit, if I'd seen this hat in a store I would have thought "what were they thinking?" but looking at this girl wearing this silly hat, it just fit.

It looked fun and happy, silly and cheerful on her head. And when I commented "great hat", because it really did seem perfect for her, she brightened up with a lighter bounce to her step and a brighter smile on her face.

So, I've changed my mind about silly hats.

Cyndesplace on Etsy has a handful of cute and fun, silly and happy hats in their stock that would be perfect examples of the kind of hats I'm talking about too. Their shop has a variety of silly hats and practical purses, totes and bags. It's a place where whimsy and functional meet in handmade accessories.

Leather Accessories and Creations by Ayelet Shachar

If you're an accessories kind of woman or know someone who is? Today's feature is a shop that you won't want to pass up stopping by and taking a browse through!

AyeletShachar on EtsyAyeletShachar on Etsy has some of the most beautiful hand crafted leather belts, purses, clutches and other accessories that I've ever seen offered online.

Professional quality with an artisan's creative design behind their creation, the items this shop has to offer are sure to turn heads and delight the wearer whether it's yourself or if you're picking something out as a gift for someone else.


Sometimes, it's accessories that make the outfit, and this is going to be especially true when it comes to these beautiful pieces from Ayelet Shachar.

carefully handmade with an emphasis on quality, originality and inspiration derived from the natural world, these pieces are directly integrated with a mindfulness towards a woman's silhouette including its shape and curves.

The artist has a bachelors in art and design and although she has many artistic interests and endeavors, over the past few years she has most recently turned her attention to the art of sculpting leather accessories that fit harmoniously with the silhouette of a woman's body.

Her pieces are not just beautiful but unique among a world full of the mundane and you're sure to love a browse when you stop by to take a look!
