I bought myself a little gift.

I always enjoy browsing around Etsy -- a wonderful online marketplace for hand made goods. I found this wonderful assemblage and I couldn't resist.
It's a tiny house on legs with some real roots inside. It's by Courtney P. You can see other goodies in her Etsy shop here. She has a blog too.

Even the back is charming. I just love those new flower stamps. I should buy a book just to use for artwork. Very inspiring. It's got all my favorite elements: house, plants, text, map, leaves!
Of course it's the perfect companion to Kristin's piece that I bought through the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. It was titled Rooted. There is something about a house with roots that is so meaningful and interesting.

Hi Deborah! Thanks for the link to Courtney's blog. I made a purchase from her Etsy shop, too! I think her work is darling and am looking forward to hanging my piece in my office when it arrives. Aloha, Dianna

Oh this is just precious! It's so perfect for your aesthetic, and you're right, it goes great with my "Rooted" quilt. I love it! Good for you for treating yourself.
