Thursday Theme Feature: Spring with Handmade Artists

Good Morning,

Today we feature the theme of the blog ring Spring.  Indeed Spring has sprung, flowers are in bloom, the rain comes and goes, Summer is just around the corner.

The blog ring has changed in that the featured theme runs for two weeks.  Last week I featured the owners of Handmade Artists, The Kitchens.  If you have not checked out that post, treat yourself and do so, lots off cool stuff to look through.

So in theme of Spring here are some things from handmadeartists.com that keep the spring in your step and a smile on your face!

Nothing says Spring like birds in the trees. OK, so these really aren't in trees... but you get the idea.

Product Details:
8X8 matte folk art birds print of a flycatcher on a cream background with  pink border. Perfect for the country home décor, or the kids room décor. Absolutely great in the retro kitchen décor, especially grouped with other of my folk art birds pictures.
This is an 8X8 art print of my original folk art birds work.
This listing is for one unframed print.
The particulars:
In my original folk art wall art, I used a combination of techniques that span the history of illustration, from the oldest, hand printing to modern digital painting, and a few wonderful techniques in between. I am inspired in my birds art by the shapes and colors of nature, and try to capture a little bit of the soul of the beautiful plant and birds that live in my large garden.
This print is an archival digital print of my original work, printed on wonderful archival paper, ready to pop into a standard frame, or mat.
It comes with an acid free backing in a protective sleeve, mailed in a rigid, no bend mailer.
 If you like this print but don’t have a paypal account, please visit my shop at etsy where you may checkout using a credit card.

I absolutely, positively MUST introduce you to Micro Pendants.  Rarely do I gush over a shop, but they deserve to be gushed over!  What a clever and fabulous idea, I am completely jealous I didn't think of this first!  Have a look, they are cool! Yes, this fits with spring, it is green, the color of new leaves.
