, my etsy shop is open

finally, it's here!


i proudly [but humbly] present my etsy shop:






over the last months, i've been busy making collages and preparing the shop


the collages are made from recycled fabrics


they're built on my drawings or on prints of my drawings


, and they're all one-of-a-kind






here's the link:


etsy.com/shop/DearDemoiselle


i hope you'll enjoy what i've made!



my shop's also got a facebook fan page



i'll post more information later


until then


, have a wonderful week!

, red dress

someone said that one should dress up to the nines every tuesday


i think this is a splendid idea


, especially since tuesday is argentine tango night in my town


here's one of my recent favourite milonguero style tango couples

music: 'sos' with francisco cararo

i love this couple's style - and her dress


hmmm... so maybe i'll wear something red today?


i'm sorry for my absence lately


the boyfriend moved back after having worked abroad for two and a half years


, so it's kind of a new life =)


i'm also working hard on something i'm going to share with you soon


, hopefully in a couple of weeks


until then, take care!

oh, i almost forgot


it's my blog birthday today ---


two years ago today, i started beauty comma here in the boyfriend's apartment in france


oh, i ought to go through my posts and blog a few of my favourite images from these 24 months


, but i'm up to my ears in work for my autumn project


so i'll celebrate by giving you a gift instead


, namely a link to some lovely calendar desktop wallpapers by love mae

, images

i'd like to share two things today:


a lovely artist and a fabulous tool


a few days ago, i stumbled upon this sweet image on the web



[paeonia by moie preisenberger]



problem: no link to the artist


but there are ways of finding original sources to uncredited images


, like google image search


i used this for the first image


and voilà:


the artist is moie preisenberger


and she's on deviantart with lots of beautiful art



[zantedeschia by moie preisenberger]



[avis: bird of paradise by moie preisenberger]

[reblogging this? please credit the original source - links under the images]

[for permalink to this post, click here]



this is how to search:


download the image you want to find out about


, upload it to google image search


and spend a little bit of time exploring the search results


it may cost you a few extra minutes


, but i think all artists deserve credit and recognition


and if one takes the time to look for the artist, one will discover more pictures


, which obviously is great, right?


let me know if you tried and if it worked for you!

, stitching

it's nice to see that hand embroidery is still around


, being renewed even


karen barbé's work is a great example of this

image credit [print on dictionary page] by image credit [prrint / etsy]

[reblogging this? please credit the original source - links under the images]

[for permalink to this post, click here]
