    Oodles of Doodles Creations

    As I am sure you know by now (if you have been following me for any time), I love to find artists in South Africa.  I have found some really talented men & women, & have some super special artwork displayed in our house because of that. I have had an idea for a new blog image for Flowercrowns & Treatment for some time, but have been looking for a style that really spoke to me & reflected who I really am in 2020.  I wanted something fun, colourful & happy!  And it was time for an update as I am no longer that sick little girl that I was…

    Minimal Creations

    I am always on the hunt for South African artists that make me smile, & that I would love to have a piece of their artwork hanging up in my house.  You may remember my blog about Charlie Loves (one of my favourite of all time), & when I saw that Minimal Creations had done a stunning drawing of Charlie’s work, I immediately reached out.

    Pet Portraits

    One of my favourite people in the world, Jane Linley-Thomas, recently posted about a portrait she was getting done of a very special family member – their adorable dog.  Now, if you know anything about me, you would know that my animals are number one in my life.  In fact, I think that we treat them better than some people do their kids.  No judgement, but I often think they deserve that unwavering love more than humans do… I immediately went to check out the social media of Pet Portraits & fell in love with everything that I saw!  I knew I had to get to know them a little…

    Nicci Nathanson Illustration

    When these pictures popped up on my Facebook timeline, I was immediately attracted to them.  I loved her style, & thought this was such a beautiful idea for Christmas gifts.  You could sense the emotion behind the illustration & it just immediately made me smile. I reached out to Nicci straight away & asked if we could have a little chat & I could show all of you her beautiful work. Christmas is coming soon, & I always think that something personalised is the best kind of gift there is – it is unlike anything else that person will receive & it shows the thought & love that has gone…

    Lisa Ternent Art

    A friend recently shared a post on Facebook, & this was about the beautiful Lisa Ternent & her amazing art.  In case you don’t know, I collect various family portraits from different artists & I was immediately drawn to Lisa’s talent & unique images! I popped her a mail asking if I could write a blog about her (& her Christmas Special that she is running).  I am going to be placing my order with her soon – will you be doing the same? Lisa has said that she will be extending this special for the next 2 orders she receives from my readers – simply let her know that…

    Nib & Bristle

    Put on your crown; let us conquer the world.” For my birthday, I decided I wanted something a little bit special as my “guest book”, & not something that would simply be put away at the bottom of the drawer & forgotten about.  I started googling ideas for this along with ideas for decor, & came across this stunning image. I loved the fact that there was still an air of mystery to it, but it captured something that is most important to me – the person’s eyes. People say that the eyes are a “window to the soul” – that they can tell us much about a person just by gazing into them.…
