Artist Inspiration: Laurence Amelie {Feminine Romance}

Flowy tulle dancing skirts
 became more magical for this
mother of sons when her
nieces were born.

I was tight with Hot Wheels, dude.
Me and light sabers were like *this*.

But tutus!


I love them.
Laurence Amelie
captures their beauty beautifully.


She sometimes creates masterpieces
on site for Rachel Ashwell who offers
them at Shabby Chic Couture.

Laurence’s art captures a magical innocence…

an exhale of wonder…

and a moment of feminine fluidity



in which to dance.

Seen her work in person?
Someday I will!

Peace to you right where you are.

    i do love rachel's table and the prairie and the "studio." omg. this is my idea of a dream job. painting what you love for someone who appreciates the work and offers it for top dollar!

    can we discuss laurence's sandals? i think i must find a source before summer gets away from us!

    Gorgeous! Just gorgeous, Michele! I love Laurence's work! There's just something so ethereal about them! 🙂 That photo of the dining room w/ruffled tablecloth is something out my dreams!

    WOW! I'm loving every image… so dreamy! Anything that has to do with ballet is my cup of tea!

    The thought of you in Paris is utter perfection… you're going to make those French women feel a little threatened;) Hahaha… I'm so excited for you!!!

    much love!

    Oh! I just love, love, love. The art and the shoes (works of art in their own right) Just looking at them makes me want to float gracefully through the day – not stomp and clomp around.
    Hope you are having a lovely week! XO
