{a special print for Gussy}




One of my blogging friends, Becca, contacted me a few weeks ago, saying she made something with Gussy in mind. Becca looooves to draw {this is her shop} so I had a little bit of an idea of what she had made.

Except in the end, I was way off. I'm in love! I had this print framed immediately and now it sits all sassy-like in our apartment. I have it on the wall right before you walk into The Sweat Shop. Hah!

How perfect is that?!



See?
This is why blogging is fun :]


Actually, once Becca showed me this print I contacted this Etsy seller and she painted a frame in this custom red color. Perfection.

A little about Becca's Etsy shop:

Hello, welcome to my little submarine shop! No, I don't sell sandwiches. I make whimsical submarine art! Go ahead, look around!


I am the proud and sassy wife of a submariner, and a *new* stay-at-home mom. My father was a Navy Chaplain, my brother and grandfather, Marines. I guess it's in the blood.


Creating, dreaming, and scheming are the things that get me through long deployments and this crazy lifestyle. I love being a military wife. I create these pieces to pay homage to the hard working men of the "silent service." They are always on duty, always standing the watch, protecting our rights, freedom and way of life. I hope that when people see my artwork they think of and appreciate the sailors and the families that love them and eagerly await their return.




Isn't her stuff cute???

Oh wow! Thanks for introducing us to Beca. I was very excited to see the aviation print. My husband and I are both pilots surrounded by a world of US aviation (when we're not living in Germany, that is). But neither of us is military. Just a thought in how it is pitched... though oh I do love that piece she's created!

Thanks, ladies!

That is too cute!!
I know what you mean about blogging, I have met some life long friends since I have been blogging. It is amazing the generosity a complete stranger can offer, I have had people who read my blog email me saying they thought of me while shopping and I have actually had one sweet girl send me a gift for no reason, just because! I feel so blessed to have these people in my life, as well as you Maggie! Have a wonderful day, now I am off to check out this sweet ladies shop!
