Tweet Tweet Romper in Babiekins Magazine!!

Isn't she the cutest?! In Babiekins Magazine Print Issue 4, you will spot the Tweet Tweet Bird Romper from the Petites Créatures Collection by Fleur + Dot featuring my watercolor art on fabric!! I love flipping though this beautiful magazine.  Make sure to look and ask for it locally or you can purchase it through Babiekins online where they also publish other work and write a fun blog too!

You can find prints, cards and other party items like cupcake flags of this sweet little pink and yellow bird at my Etsy shop.  You can find this fabric on Spoonflower where it and others will soon be available for the public to purchase!

Thank you


This is the little bluejay feather our son found and promptly gave me outside of church this morning.  I'm thankful. 

I'm thankful not only for this feather but also for your continued support as I grow as an artist.  Even as I write my awesome husband is laying down the flooring in my new studio and I can't wait to start organizing and placing furniture.  I am super excited to paint more watercolours and make all sorts of treasures!   

I also wanted to take the time to let you know that as I want to continue to grow my skills into a little thriving business and because I want to continue to offer quality items I will be making some changes to my pricing in the next little bit.   I will continue to try to make up for it by having sales and I will announce them on my facebook or twitter.  So please make sure you are following me elsewhere too.

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday and I wish you the best as you begin your week!

♡ Renée Anne

Out of the Water

I'm thankful for some lovely photos of our camping trip taken by my sweet husband Patrick.  I especially love this series that he took of our youngest and I.  Some of the best memories I have as a child is spending an afternoon in the water at the lake and feeling spent as the day ended and it was time to head in for a good night's sleep.   










P.S. Mindy Kalin's book was quite funny, especially the beginning chapters.

Studio Renos

The walls are freshly painted white, the carpet has been pulled up and the floors are getting prepped for hardwood.  My new studio is almost ready!!  Check out some of the details so far...




I love this old light fixture.  
There's one in our bedroom and one in the studio.



 The walls are painted Simply White by Benjamin Moore and the floors are going to be natural maple.  I'm hoping to find enough room to keep that couch in here but it might not fit.


With the carpet up, the new floor is badly needed!
 We discovered pretty pink paint behind the baseboards. I've been tempted to paint something pink ever since.


 In the tiny closet I found this old hook and this pretty vintage wallpaper.  
More of that tempting pink I was talking about.





Sigh! I really do love this sconce!
