For those who love cosiness and comfort like I do:

Shabby chic wooden word LOVE

Salut from Ancient Egypt!

Hi guys! How is your Friday going? We were travelling to Tzfat (Safed) on the north of Israel to catch some inspiration! We hope we'll have some time to share with your our best shots from there :)
And today we continue the ethnic theme!

This time we show you a geometric painting on decorative plate. The ornament is one of motives from Ancient Egypt. The plate looks absolutely unique thanks to combination of geometric minimalism and luxurious shining sparkles that cover some elements of painting!

Enough words! Here are some pics!

This week we have an amazing thing to show you!
This is one of a kind wooden jewelry box that I've painted by hand. I have been chosen the colors very carefully so they look rich and unusual and finally decided to take turquoise, brown, bronze and white.


You may store there necklaces, bracelets, earring and other jewelry. Or just some nice tiny things that are precious for you!

This jewelry box is completely unique: I won't make any that will look the same.
You may find it here, in our Etsy shop!

Enjoy the spring!

Person of the Week: Katya Trischuk and her Easter eggs!

Everyone is preparing for Easter! Even if you already have decorations and already bought gifts we bet it will be still interesting for you to read about an amazing artist Katya Trischuk and her really breathtaking painted eggs!

"I live in Toronto with my husband Louie and a little dog. Easter 2014 will be very interesting, as my shop getting bigger and busier. 

I discovered my artistic ability at an early age and was often in trouble at school for drawing in my books or spending my lunch money on art supplies", - says Katya.

In the mid 90's Katya turned to painting with oil on canvas and for 3 years had her own art atelier in Kiev. Her talents were recognized in the arts community and with private collectors. During this time, Katya traveled extensively throughout Europe where she visited museums and learned more about art, history and architecture.

In the summer of 2000 Katya returned to Toronto to complete her degree in Interior Design at Ryerson University. Today Katya continues her passion for painting. She considers herself a "process-oriented" artist and uses a palette knife for layering, dry-brush techniques, cloths and even her hands to create paintings that are rich in vibrant colours and lush with texture. This gives her work a distinctive quality. Katya's work can be seen at any number of Toronto art galleries and has been showcased at The Toronto International Art Fairs. 

Katya's painting are very touching! But today we'll show you only her beautiful Pysanky - Ukranian painted Easter eggs!







And some nice picks of Katya's treasures! :)






For more Easter spirit visit Katya's shop on Etsy - UkrainianEasterEggs

Have and amazing day!
Viktoria and Elena
