Artful Blogging

I am in LOVE with Somerset Studios delicious new lines of magazines. I cannot get over how many they are publishing now. I could go broke trying to keep up with all of the yumminess! I had to have this one because I love blogging and discovering new blogs to visit and meeting kindred spirits. The photography is true eye candy. You should check it out, if you haven't already. I always find my issues at Barnes and Noble but I know I have seen them in Michaels, as well. Just look at the cover of this issue. Aqua and red; one of my favorite color combinations. As seen in my work here:

I also just discovered an amazing photographer with an etsy shop. Her name is Tricia Mc Kellar. Her images have a vintage quality and are of simple and beautiful subjects. You should go check her out. Her yellow roses are a favorite of mine. I plan to purchase them for my mother for her birthday. You can see her etsy shop via a link from her blog.
Have a wonderful week!

  2. Tammy, just wanted to let you know that I spent a part of Sunday evening reading your blog.
    So many beautiful things to see and read here!
    Thank you for sharing.
    I love you work!


  3. I love seeing your beautiful work. that aqua piece with the bird is gorgeous.

  4. Tammy, I just love the bird clock! Who can resist red and aqua together? I have just discovered 'Artful Blogging' blogging, too. It's wonderful!

  5. Somerset magazines are my kryptonite. I still can't believe that I wouldn't pay $15 for a book (because I rationalize that I can borrow it at the library for free) but I'll pay that much for a Somerset magazine. I have a problem!!

  6. Ooh I love all of their magazines too! I like how the photographer distresses her photos. I hope you had a fantastic Valentines!!!

  7. Hi Tammy, the magazine looks awesome!

    In regards to the comment you left on my blog post "furry little miracles" you said bamboo doesn't take long to grow. lol
    Bamboo doesn't grow in the wild here. In fact, it's very hard to get to grow at all. lol
    Eucalptus trees aka gum trees are the source of most of our forests, and are the food of our beautiful koalas. The trees take up to 50 years to establish themselves.

    Thankyou for your comment and your thoughts. I really do hope they (the animals) heal fast and are able to be relocated to a new home where their food is plentiful!
    Love Manda. xx
