Last summer Melissa introduced me to the most talented artist. Laura of SpunSugarPaperie (how fun is that name) paints the most darling and detailed watercolors. The first time I visited her etsy shop I knew we would become fast friends as we loved all the same things....sweets, Paris and all things feminine! I think you all are just going to go gaga for her stuff too (not to mention her AMAZING prices!).
I placed an order from Laura right away and bought an original watercolor depicting a Chanel bottle of Coco Mademoiselle (above) and then a box of my beloved Laduree macarons:
The macaron print is a perfect addition to my kitchen and the Chanel perfume looks divine in my guest room.
I was SO impressed with the quality of these original paintings that I commissioned Laura to do a painting for my mother's birthday. Of course it had to be blue and white:
Isn't it wonderful? I liked it so much I almost kept it for myself...alas, I gave in and did gift it and it is now on my mother's bedside table.
Laura is just a dream to work with and I cannot wait to get my next two commissions in the mail!
While SpunSugarPaperie mostly offers paintings, there is also a darling selection of cards (made from your selection of prints), scarves and aprons. Laura will also design just about anything else your heart desires and I can vouch (as can Melissa) that she can make anything look beautiful!
With all that being said I am so excited that Laura has offered to host a giveaway!!!
