La Pomme Noire

There is one particular seller on Etsy who I very much adore. Her name is Emily, but she masquerades as The Black Apple. Her paintings and prints are so truly lovely that I feel the need to add a prefix to my favorite adjective. They are super-lovely. As my dear friend Paige would say, "they make my heart smile." But enough of all the gushing. Let me just show you a few images, and you will see my point!


I am quite fond of these pictures' offbeat sweetness. And I adore the muted color palate! Those lovely dusty shades convey the perfect amount of surreal dreamy prettiness that I like in a painting. They are all just so cute! Perhaps too cute for some of you out there, but certainly not me. I mean, I'm not the kind of girl who hangs up kitten calendars in her bedroom, but I'm not one to resist letting out an elongated "awwwwww" when I see a little bitty hedgehog fishing with apples. I am planning on purchasing one or two of these prints myself and I highly recommend checking out her shop and her blog. The prints are each $13, and for some sets, $22. A small price to pay for all of that loveliness. Really.

Oh my God, that hedgehog[porcupine?] print is the most adorable thing ever!

By the way, I was lurking Cory Kennedy's blog and I saw the comment you made about how useful the shift key was for making capital letters. It made me laugh a little too hard.

I have to agree. Her prints are so great. I love Little Dunces and Bandits.
