The Lost and Found Girl

Meet Monica.  She is a treasure seeker and finds beauty in unexpected places.  She works at a local video store that specialises in VHS and occasionally worries about job security as it is becoming  quite obsolete.  Her favourite treat is churros con cajeta .

I'm baaack with a "what I wore"...

It feels weird to be painting and in blogger land again after taking almost three weeks off.  I had the loveliest time with my parents, lots of conversation, laughter, silly moments and way too much food consumption!  It was a blast but I'm ready to get back to my usual routine of  hours of internet surfing, blogging and painting (and a wee bit of chores in between!)  And so,  here is my what I wore from last week when I went to The Original Farmers Market with my parents.
Cable knit beanie - Asos
Woolen coat - Vintage (used to belong to my mum)
Sweater - Zara
Denim shorts - Madewell
Tights - Macy's
Bag - Vintage

Some time off...

It's a pretty embarrassing photo but I thought I'd share it anyway in honor of my folks being in town.  I'm super excited because I haven't seen them since I moved here almost two years ago!  They're going to be here for the next 17 days and that's how long a break I'll be taking from blogging.  Ciao ciao!

Stolen Artwork

I've just been made aware by a lovely Etsy seller that a kids clothing company in Argentina has been stealing my designs for commercial use, this makes me angry and disappointed.  I don't watermark my images on my blog or etsy because I know not everyone can/wants buy a print or custom portrait and I think it's nice that people can save an image they like for personal use but when it's been used for profiteering like this...well geez! 

Edit (for everyone who asked how I responded to this): I contacted the company about said offense and am now to believe they have removed the items from their stores.
