ETSY ART: Hillarie Tasche

I ordered my first piece of art on etsy, from a fellow Canadian - Hillarie Tasche. I am creative, but I am no artist - which is why I'm always impressed by people who can paint, draw, illustrate, things that actually come out looking like the items they mean it to. I love Hillarie's simple, yet detailed art, and when I received my two prints, they were even better in person than what I had seen online. Gorgeous vibrant colours and wonderful talent. You need to check out her store - the line of bicycles is so awesome.

Easter's coming (mmmmm Cream Eggs...........)! I'm not a huge boiled egg eater, but darned if I don't love a sweet egg cup :) I have a VW CamperVan egg cup, which is a souvenir a friend of mine brought back from Britain. It's pink, and has a cute little surfboard (that doubles as a salt shaker) which nests inside the egg-holding divet. And that's what got me on to this collection. Above are some neat, whimsical ones I found that you can actually use. Below are egg cups that have been used for something else.

New in the shop - a cute tote for summer with plastic handles, and a lime green and gold cotton damask interior. I'm not sure that I'll be making this particular style again, so snap it up while she's hot :)
