Monday's Potpourri

OK, I know its Tuesday evening. Yes, I'm late. But I'm still calling it Monday's Potpourri. Just cuz I can! Now on to business.

I have some very special artists to feature today to celebrate the return of Monday's Potpourri after a short summer hiatus.

The first artist is a return guest in our Monday Potpourri. Pam Carriker has created the most beautiful and striking mixed media art and it has a wonderful cause. Beauty in Strength was created in honor of Pam's step mother who is battling breast cancer. The original of this art was sold in about an hour after being posted in Pam's on line shop. But Pam is selling prints in her print shop thebagladysart. All profit from the sale of Beauty in Strength will be sent to the Susan G Koman foundation to help fund breast cancer research. I know you will want to take a closer look at this poignant work of art and perhaps purchase a print as a gift for a friend or maybe even yourself. And while you are in Pam's shop, take a look around at her other great art.

The next featured artist is StardustLove, a mother-daughter team from the Rio Grande. Rosanne and Hester of StardustLove contribute 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the beautiful jewelry in their shop to a variety of charities from humanitarian to conservation and also to animal rescue. Each of their pieces of jewelry is claimed for a particular charity. Today I want to share the Snow Leopard necklace. The sale of this lovely blue adornment will benefit the World Wildlife Fund. While you are in StardustLove's shop, be sure and read about the different charities they support with their sales. It will be an education.

Next is one of my very favorite artist friends, Annette Tait of dragonhouseofYuen. Here you see Baby Hare Beauty wearing her floral ensemble. Annette lives in Scotland with her rescued bunnies Arabella and Wesley who brighten and inspire her days. She is a member of EFA/artists helping animals and a portion of her proceeds goes to help animal charities. Annette's creative mind is always fun and entertaining. Check out her shop and blog for an enjoyable read.

thank you kindly Elizabeth for featuring me in your blog! Little Beauty is very chuffed about being here but just now she has her very flushed face inside a bouquet!! (I can see one of her eyes peering up at me!)
I'm pleased to be able to help animals in need.
