It's Friday. Normally, this is great. However, this particular Friday marks the end of our 2-week I Heart Art series. Yes, it's sad. But we're not going out with a whimper--no sir! We're celebrating all the amazing art we found with one last double-shot of awesomeness!

We hope you've enjoyed all of our finds! Stay tuned for more wonderful finds (and a whole new theme) next week...

Royal Tea.

"Teapots" A4 print, from Laura Amiss.

With all the hubbub surrounding Will and Kate's big day, we couldn't resist showcasing this lovely tea-inspired print from Laura Amiss. Her shop is filled with cute and colorful prints, textiles and several absolutely adorable embroidered canvas pieces (like this one)--all based on her own original designs and illustrations. Cheers!

Part of our ongoing I Heart Art series. More finds later today!

Hello, Loverboy.

"Sailor Girl" giclee print, from Hellomarine.

Pop meets Art Nouveau in one of our new favorite Etsy shops, Hellomarine. We're fond of this cute little sailor girl (above), but we're seriously thinking about making some space on our wall for "Volta".

Down By The Water.

"Dark Seas" sewn print, from Tastes Orangey.

Changing your shirt, sitting by the water, laying in bed (with a pillow over your face)...moments where your mind is somewhere else, and your body is on auto-pilot. These are the "in between" moments captured so lovingly by one of our favorite artists, Tastes Orangey.

Many of Tastes Orangey's paintings and prints, like "Dark Seas" above, come with a sewn border too--an extra touch that frames each candid moment beautifully.

Fish Out Of Water.

"Fish Dance" archival print, from Treasure Frey.

We're so excited to discover Treasure Frey--so many amazing creations to choose from! And if you're a geometric shape lover, you'll definitely be dazzled by "Tunnel".

Diminutive Delight.

Gouache painting, 5 x 7, from Squid Whale Designs.

We're loving these small gouache paintings from Squid Whale Designs. Even the tiniest space could benefit from these diminutive, geometric beauties.

Easter Hangover.

"The Lone Oddity" print, from lkbarbour.

When I think of Easter, I think of the last Easter egg hunt I was ever a part of. I was 8 or 9...ok, maybe I was 13. Anyways, I remember feeling like I was stealing the joy from the other (younger) kids. Most likely, my paranoia stemmed from the glares of hovering parents--eyeballing me like I was some sort of Easter devil.

I hate egg hunts.

Got an Easter memory (or nightmare) you'd like to share? Let us know.
