"Watercolors by Arlene Faye" Etsy Shop Review & Giveaway!!

I think I was born about a century late. I love the good old days. The stories, the pictures and the lifestyle. I love antiques, and want to pass on the "old things" and "old ways" to my children and grandchildren!
A while back when I was "shopping around" on Etsy, a watercolor painting popped up and I went to check out "Watercolors by Arlene Faye"! I Just Love her paintings!
It is hard to say which painting would be my favorite, but I love laundry hanging out to dry, so the "Laundry day" painting would be high on my list!
After visiting "Watercolors By Arlene Faye" you will soon see that she has a wide variety of paintings and you can find a painting that will fit in every room of the house! And you can pick from Original watercolors or prints!

The "I CAN REACH THAT" Giraffe would be great for a children's room! I know my girls would Love it!

I love the "Sweet Gardenia"!

Isn't it breath-taking?! I would have this on a bedroom wall too!

I love cherries! And I think the "Life Is A Bowl of Cherries" painting will make you hungry for a fresh cherry or cherry pie! =) YUM! They look so shiny and real!

"Watercolors by Arlene Faye" would make great gifts!

I would get several of them for Christmas gifts! Or maybe you would rather give watercolor painting notecards? She has a lot of them too!

She has a lot of great winter scene paintings on notecards! Including these "Sheep in Winter" (below)! And watercolor cards that will be great for Christmas cards! There are a lot of them to choose from! Just visit "Watercolors By Arlene Faye" to see them all!

I have a print of the "Vintage Pink Teapot" from "Watercolors by Arlene Faye", and I am so excited about it! It is like having a rare treasure to me! When I first got it, I had thought about giving it to someone special for a gift, but I think I am going to keep it for our family and pass it on to our girls!
I love tea and teapots and as I said before, vintage items! Plus I think this will look really good on the cedar walls in the kitchen! Maybe someday I will have a dining room and can hang it up in there!
