I took some photos of Marisa Avelar's wonderful wreathes, gnome scenes and shadow boxes as part trade for her helping me out so much designing my website and postcards.
She really gets my aesthetic and I get hers too!
She collects lots of vintage toys and decorations and pieces them all together with lots of loving care!
I recently got shown round her studio and she has organized boxes with 'gnomes' and 'mushrooms', etc. I really wanted to look through all those labelled boxes, but I restrained myself, Marisa did give me a very sweet little bambi that may have to appear in my christmas cards this year. Her studio is a treasure trove of vintage kitsch and cuteness
