I'm an Etsy window-shopping addict, and have purchsed several drawings over the past year, mostly bird images for my wee bird collection. I love bird imagery in any form, from serious historical prints and nature art to abstract and whimsical imagery.

I just discovered the work of a lovely artist Geninne, from Mexico City, through a Domino feature. Her "Ask Believe Receive" series makes me smile with joy, and I'm thinking of getting it for myself for Christmas. I love the images, the bright rich colours, and the sweet idea behind the series, of asking (your) God for the things you want.

Check out her Etsy shop and also her delightful blog which is updated regularly- her other work is equally stunning! I have my eye on a few of her things. And with the Canadian dollar being so high, shopping for lovely U.S. goods is seriously affordable!


  1. These are gorgeous!! I love the coloura and they look like they are textured...

    Thanks for the link! Hope all is well...

  2. Lovely! I like the progression to receiving.

  3. Just made me smile, too. How delightful; they'd make you a fine Christmas gift. Early!

    Hope that you had a great week!

  4. I love these...thanks for sharing! I'm off to check out her shop! I'm on a shopping diet this year and have tried to avoid etsy...but I have been seduced!

  5. Thank you so much Terri!


  6. Hi Terri,

  7. I am so new to blogging that I was really unaware of Etsy until just recently. And I haven't yet fully immersed myself in the shopping. But I can see how I will quickly become one of its biggest fans!

    Thanks Terri! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!


  8. i think they're super cute. and i agree w/smarts, the set in order is inspiring. :)

    thanks for your uplifting words on my blog; the sugar cravings are (finally) calming down.

  9. What beautiful paintings. They look like watercolors. I am going to go check out her etsy shop.

    Here is an artist who does a lot of wonderful birds, mainly in oil and/or encaustics: Natalie Salminen. Do a google search and you will find her site. Turn on the volume of your computer...she has bird sounds as the 'music'!
