Lilliana and her Leopards (velveteen bows)

On Sunday, my mom and I drove my pieces for the Teeny Tiny Art Show VI up to Three Graces Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. This giant whale mural is behind The Friendly Toast, which is where we ate lunch!
In the gallery: two of my pieces that will be in the show (I'll post them later this week), and in the background (bottom left) some of my left over pieces from the Tiny Show V back in September, which will be for sale again in the upcoming show.
Mom and I at friendly toast. :)
This is the bow I'm wearing on my collar in the picture above! It's from the lovely Jessie of Vinny and Vernelle. She's so sweet and purchased one of my Haiti relief prints, and after talking, we decided to do an additional etsy shop trade.
The pin came packaged so beautifully! I love it and can't wait to wear it again.
I also love the photographs  she uses in her etsy listings. They're gorgeous!
I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
Love,
Amanda

What a lovely day.
That bow is adorable.
My husband hates bows but I may just need to get one of those anyhow. He can handle it, don't you think?

love love love,

i think these are very debonaire bows! (feminine but not too girly at all) and you would look great in one!

Love this post honey!! Such a fun day :) And I love the collar bow that you are wearing!

I also love Jessie's photos that you posted - is that her in them? She's so pretty! She looks like she stepped right out of the fifties!... Love, Mumsy

Your bow is so swish - and that mural! Whales are wonderful - they're these big dangerous creatures who eat loads of tiny tiny things and sing songs to each other. My kind of people.
