Introducing the lovely Amelia, creator of Whimsy
Today is Amelia's birthday!Wishing you a sunny day and fortuitous year ahead- happy birthday!digital peony bouquetIn her own words- whimsy is remembering...
...when stories were more than just pictures & words
...when the world was boundless & unchartered
...when there was only adventure in your heart
...your best friends, with buttons for eyes
...the certainty that you could fly
...the under-the-bed monsters
...that there is magic in your pocketCheck out the site hereJoin the facebook group hereFind her Saturdays at the Essenwood Market hereEnjoy her ethereal world below here :About meWho are you?
Amelia Jane Smith (a girl wanting wings)
Where are you?
Currently in Durban although eyeing Cape Town with definite home sickness!
What are you?
a quiet creature with dramatic edges and sparkly insides...in other words: a modestly self-employed artist working with illustration and design in a small venture known as 'whimsy'
too much hot chocolate - one of the few winter perks
Her Space Holiday and Say Hi (two artists I was introduced to recently that have dominated my playlists! Think Postal Service meets The Shins meets Death Cab for Cutie, all mellowed out with some orchestral moments thrown in for good measure)
the photographic work of Robert & Shana Parkeharrison
trees, fairy lights, lighthouses, rowing boats, fountains, crows, pigtails, gumboots, long cloaks, armchairs, freckles and a compass...
my latest sartorial addition - a pair of the happiest, red shoes from Ya-Ya in Pretoria (thanks, Casey!)
the far reaches of the world and what I might find there...
