Do you ever see a piece of art that moves you somehow?
Maybe triggers a memory or a wish?

I saw this print by the immensely pleasant Clare of
on etsy a while back and it did just that.

I spent my summer's growing up in Canada, 
going the lake, playing outside in the water and on the shores edge,
hiking through the forests with my grandparents.
When I saw this print, it immediately transported me back.
Memories are funny that way...a sound, a smell, 
the slightest invocation and suddenly you are there again.

I've had it in my favorites list for quite some time,
 as I couldn't figure out exactly where I would put it.
Well a recent rearranging of our master bedroom has opened up the perfect spot!
So I ordered it and now it's on it's way...I can't wait to get it!!

What's been tickling your fancy this week?

I love your choice in art. The painting is beautiful and I especially like the sense of motion that the artist has created with the use of pencil strokes.

ps - Also really like the colors of the greens and the turquoise.

I'm sure the painting will bring you lots of happy memories and nostalgia. It's amazing how unconnected objects can sometimes do that isn't it?

Oh Meeling, what a cute print and what a lovely shop :)

Thanks for sharing, I have to go back and have a more detailed look :)

You will have to show it to us once it is all framed and hanging up.

Cheers, T. :)
